Pages of Taj Mahal’s history should not be turned, Supreme Court rejects PIL

New Delhi: Was Taj Mahal really Tejo Mahalaya? Was this world famous building in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, built by demolishing Lord Shiva’s temple? Efforts to find the answers to these questions have taken a hit. The Supreme Court has rejected a plea seeking a “factual inquiry” into the history of the Taj Mahal and the “opening of 22 rooms” in the monument’s premises. The Supreme Court gave its verdict on Friday and said that this is not a petition filed in public interest but to gain publicity. The Supreme Court said, ‘This is a publicity interest litigation.

The Allahabad High Court had already given a blow
It is worth mentioning that the Allahabad High Court has already rejected this application. The petitioner appealed to the Supreme Court against the order of the High Court. Now two judges of the Supreme Court Justice MR. A bench of Shah and Justice MM Sundaresh refused to interfere with the Allahabad High Court order. The bench said, “The High Court has not erred in dismissing the petition, which is a publicity interest petition, stands dismissed.

A BJP leader filed the petition
The Allahabad High Court on May 12 said petitioner Rajnish Singh, who is the media in-charge of the Ayodhya unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has failed to show that his legal or constitutional rights are being violated. He said of the petitioner’s counsel for filing the PIL ‘negligently’ he could not pass any order under Article 226 of the Constitution in the matter. Article 226 empowers the High Court to issue orders or writs to enforce fundamental rights to any person or authority within its jurisdiction.

Claim to build Taj Mahal by demolishing Shiva temple
Several Hindu organizations have claimed in the past that the Mughal-era tomb was a temple of Lord Shiva. The monument is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). The petition also sought to set aside certain provisions of the Ancient, Historical Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains (Declaration of National Importance) Act, 1951 and the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1958, under which the Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, Agra Fort and Itmad-ud-daulah’s tomb was declared a historical monument.
