Charles Darwin averred, “False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science for they often endure long”.
This is true of history too, in which case they endure longer with the active patronage of rulers and various other kinds of powerful lobbies. This phenomenon is more pronounced in countries like India, where politics of twisting history (and just everything) to humour committed vote banks is a cottage industry!
A case in point is the canard that the famous Taj Mahal was a structure devoted to carnal love by the “Great” Moghul king Shah Jahan to his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. Please keep in my mind that this is the same Shah Jahan who had a harem of 5,000 women and the same Shah Jahan who had a incestuous relationship with his daughter justifing it by saying, “a gardner has every right to taste the fruit he has planted”! Is such a person even capable of imagining such a wondrous structure as the Taj Mahal let alone be the architect of it?
The answer is an emphatic NO. It just cannot be. And there isn’t even an iota of proof for that “official version”. The Taj Mahal is as much a Islamic structure as is mathematics a Muslim discovery! The famous historian Shri P.N. Oak has proven that Taj Mahal is actually “Tejo Mahalaya”, a Shiva temple-palace. His work was published in 1965 in the book, “Taj Mahal – The True Story”. However, we have not heard much about it because it was banned by the powers that be who did not want to alienate their precious vote bank- the Muslims.
