GUWAHATI: On April 4, an Assam BJP MLA from Mariani advised PM Modi to destroy the Taj Mahal and Qutub Minar and build temples in their place.
Rupjyoti Kurmi, a Mariani BJP MLA, urged Prime Minister Modi to destroy the Taj Mahal and Qutub Minar in order to construct the most magnificent temple in the entire globe while speaking to the media.
The MLA further argued that the temple's design should be unmatched. He further stated that he is prepared to sacrifice his entire income for one year to the build the temples. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan had the enormous white marble monument known as the Taj Mahal constructed in Agra between 1631 and 1648 in honour of his favourite wife.
The Taj Mahal is the crowning achievement of Muslim art in India and one of the most celebrated works of art in human history.
The red sandstone Qutub Minar tower is 72.5 m high, tapering from 2.75 m in diameter at its peak to 14.32 m at its base, and has alternately angular and rounded flutings. It was constructed in the early 13th century, a few kilometres south of Delhi.
The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), on the other hand, recently updated its textbooks, which will have an impact on schools all throughout the nation. The chapters pertaining to the Mughal empire will no longer be included in the "Themes of Indian History-Part 2" history textbook for 12th grade.
The book no longer contains the chapters under "Kings and Chronicles; the Mughal Courts (C. 16th and 17th centuries)." Several other textbooks have also undergone revisions besides this one. Many poems and passages from the Hindi textbooks have also undergone revision by NCERT.
The modifications suggested by NCERT will be put into effect beginning with the current academic year, or 2023–2024. The 12th-grade Civics textbook has been updated, along with the History and Hindi texts.
