Jama Masjid was a Hindu Temple, claims BJP MP

The row over the Muslim built monuments still continue. After several BJP leaders like Sangeet Som, Subramanian Swamy, and Yogi Adityanath termed Taj Mahal as a blot on Indian culture, BJP MP Vinay Katiyar makes sensational comments on Delhi’s Jama Masjid.



The BJP leader said that the Jama Masjid of Delhi was actually a Jamuna Devi Temple, which was demolished by the Mughals to construct Jama Masjid.

“There were about 6000 places that were broken down by the Mughal emperors. Delhi’s Jama Masjid was originally Jamuna Devi temple, similarly, Taj Mahal was Tejo Mahalaya,” said Vinay Katiyar.

When the UP government had ignored to list Taj Mahal in their state's tourism list, Vinay Katiyar claimed the Taj Mahal was Lord Shiva's Temple on which the monument was built.
