The reason for the Taj Mahal coming into the discussion is different types of claims being made by different people. In such a situation, we have tried to understand what are the reasons for coming to the discussion of the Taj Mahal and tell you what claims are made about the Taj Mahal.
A few days back Arnab Goswami and Sudhir Chaudhary’s channel Republic Bharat and Zee News told the relation of the Taj Mahal with Jats, and then the discussion started on social media, some people are sharing their reactions on social media by calling it Hindu Muslim issue. Along with this, some people are posting this by making memes.
So today we are telling you about those claims, which are being made and telling about those popular stories, in which many claims are made about the Taj Mahal.
Jats had filled the straw!
It is said that in the year 1907, the Jats of Bharatpur attacked the Taj Mahal. During this, he took away the main gate of the Taj Mahal covered with gold and silver layers and took it with him. Apart from this, the Jats had made it a stable by filling straws in the Taj Mahal.
The horses were tied up by King Surajmal!
At the same time, a section says that the Jats of Bharatpur and Raja Surajmal had tied horses in the Taj Mahal. If the claims are to be believed, Maharaja Surajmal had won the fort of Agra after fighting a war for about a month. After this other kings advised him to demolish the Taj Mahal. However, he did not do so by keeping fodder in the Taj Mahal and used it as a stable for his horses.
Have you been attacked many times?
Apart from this, claims are also made that the Taj Mahal has also been attacked. It is said that during the Indian freedom struggle of 1857, the Taj Mahal was a victim of plunder. The invaders dug out the precious stones embedded inside it like Lajvarta etc.
An auction was about to take place to choose the loan!
Not only this, claims have also been made in many reports of choosing a loan by selling the Taj Mahal. It is said that by selling the Taj Mahal, a plan was also made to elect the government’s debt. For this, the then Governor of Bengal Lord William Batink put the Taj on auction. However, due to some reasons the auction could not take place and the Taj Mahal was saved from collapse.
‘Many signs related to Hindu religion on the Taj Mahal’
Raje says that these rooms have not been open to the public for the last 88 years. According to historian Rajkishore Raje, if that place is opened, then the evidence can be found in it whether it is related to any Hindu religion or not… whether there was a temple here or not. He argues that there are many symbols related to the Hindu religion on the Taj Mahal, in which a lotus flower is made, which has nothing to do with the Muslim religion.
Due to all these stories, this topic is becoming very trending on social media.
