Taj Mahal in trouble?One of the 7 wonders of the world, Taj Mahal is owned and maintained by Archeological Survey of India (ASI)
It was built by Shah Jahan in 1631 in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.
Now, problem is Uttar Pradesh Wakf Sunni board is claiming that Shah Jahan had executed a' wakafnama' in favor of the board so that Taj Mahal to be handed over to them
Supreme Court asks them to produce Shah Jahan's signature, then it can be handed over!
The honorable Supreme Court noticed that the present owner of the Taj, ASI is failing to maintain the structure as the structure is discolored due to environmental pollution. ASI is informed the Honorable Supreme Court that unwashed socks worn by the visitors turned the Taj from white to yellow!
Also, they informed the SC that they are not able to provide new socks to all the visitors every day!!
As the structure is deteriorating due to environmental pollution, it may lose its status as a world's wonder.
Dear members, according to you who can own and maintain the Taj Mahal? Archeological Survey of India?, Sunni Wakaf board? State Government? Or Central Govt? or anybody else?
