Kerala Tourism Celebrates Taj Mahal. Twitterati Thinks It’s A Jibe At Yogi Government

Published on 20 October, 2017 at 5:43 pm By

Couple of weeks ago, BJP legislator from Uttar Pradesh, Sangeet Som, called Taj Mahal, one of the world’s seven wonders, a monument built over a Hindu temple.

Som went on to add that the Taj Mahal in Agra was built by a ‘traitor’ Shah Jahan who wanted to wipe out Hindus. He said that the Taj Mahal is essentially a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva which was converted into a mausoleum by Shah Jahan for his deceased wife Mumtaz.

 

The Taj Mahal has been at the center of controversies recently. BBC

Som’s remarks had received widespread criticism. The latest to add to the list is the Tourism department of Kerala government. Hailed in tourism circles as “God’s own country”, Kerala tourism’s advertisement appears to take a dig at the BJP and the Uttar Pradesh government.

For the first time ever, the tourism department tweeted an image of Taj Mahal and wrote about the world-wide fame of this building.

However, amidst all the controversy, the magnificent building has found a place in the UP government’s calendar for 2018. The state’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had recently said:

“It is immaterial as to who and how Taj Mahal was built…it was made by the saputs (sons) of Bharat Mata through their khoon and pasina…it is famous the world over for its architecture…is a historical monument and its protection and further development for tourism is the responsibility of the government.”

The political war between the Communist government in Kerala and the BJP has taken an ugly turn of late. The continuous murders of RSS workers allegedly by CPM goons in Kerala has forced Yogi Adityanath to launch ‘Jan Raksha Yatra’ in October. The march was from Kechery to Kannur and culminated at Thiruvanantpuram on October 17.

Anyway, Twitter was divided on the manner in which Kerala Tourism apparently took a jibe. Some of them praised it:
