Taj Mahal News: Allahabad High Court said that it is not the job of the court to decide who built the Taj Mahal. So tomorrow you will demand the judges to go to the chamber.
New Delhi: Allahabad High Court has rejected the petition seeking a survey of 22 rooms in the Taj Mahal. The High Court said that it is not the job of the court to decide who built the Taj Mahal. So tomorrow you will demand the judges to go to the chamber. According to the demand of the petitioner, this court cannot constitute a fact finding committee. The court will not interfere in this matter. The job of the court is not to verify and research historical facts. It is appropriate to leave this work to the experts and historians of historical facts. We cannot entertain such a petition. The issues on which the petitioner’s demand and plea from the court are not within the scope of judicial review. The court said in the order that in the Monuments Act 1951, is there any mention or declaration that the Taj Mahal was built by the Mughals only?
BJP’s Ayodhya unit’s media in-charge Rajneesh Singh had filed a petition claiming that false history was being taught about the Taj Mahal and that he wanted to do research in 22 rooms to find out the truth. The High Court said, such debates are for the drawing room, not for the courts of law.
The petition has also demanded that some constructions and structures should be removed from the Taj complex so that the evidence is not destroyed to bring out the truth of archaeological importance and history. The court said that the petition is not based on proper and judicial issues. Court cannot decide on them. In the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court, Justice DK Upadhyay and Justice Subhash Vidyarthi also raised questions on the petitioner. The petitioner presented several judgments of the High Court and the Supreme Court, in which there is mention of fundamental rights under Article 19 and especially the freedom of worship, worship and religious belief. The court said that we do not agree with your arguments. When the petitioner told the court that earlier there was a Shiva temple which was given the form of a tomb.
The petition was filed by the BJP leader
On this, Justice DK Upadhyay while advising the petitioner said that first do MA PhD in this regard from any institute. Then come to us. If any institute does not admit you for this, then come to us. The petitioner again said that I have to go to those rooms of the Taj Mahal. Let the court allow it. Even on this, the attitude of the court remained strict.
Justice Upadhyay said that tomorrow you will say that I have to go to the judge’s chamber. Expressing displeasure, the court said that the PIL system should not be misused. Who got the Taj Mahal built first and do research. Justice DK Upadhyay asked the petitioner whether history would be read according to you? First of all, read all this that when the Taj Mahal was built, who built it, how it was built. This does not affect any of your rights.
