After a BJP leader’s controversial comments describing the Taj Mahal has a “blot on Indian culture”, Samajwadi Party lawmaker Azam Khan said today, “Why only Taj Mahal, Parliament and Rashtrapathi Bhavan are also symbols of slavery and should be demolished.”
It is not clear whether Azam Khan, notorious for his outrageous comments, was being sarcastic in response to BJP lawmaker Sangeet Som’s words on the Taj.
“I have always held the view that all symbols of slavery should be erased. Why only Taj Mahal? Why not Parliament, Rashtrapati Bhavan, Qutub Minar and Red Fort?
These are all symbols of ghulami (slavery). Traitors, as RSS people call them. If these are symbols of traitors, then they should be demolished,” Azam Khan told a news agency.
