BJP MLA sparks controversy by seeking demolition of Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA), Rupjyoti Kurmi, has sparked a controversy by seeking the demolition of Taj Mahal and Qutub Minar.

In videos being widely circulated online, Rupjyoti Kurmi demands an investigation into whether Mughal emperor Shah Jahan ‘truly loved’ his wife Mumtaz.

He also requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to build temples to replace the two Mughal-era monuments. The Mariani MLA also announced that he is willing to donate a year’s salary for the temple construction.

“I urge the Prime Minister to immediately demolish the Taj Mahal and Qutub Minar. In place of these two monuments, the world’s most beautiful temples should be built. The architecture of those two temples should be such that no other monuments could be even closer to them.”
