The CISF released them only after they apologized in writing. The youth were later made to submit an apology and were let off with a warning.

Reportedly, he went to the extent of demanding that Taj Mahal should be renamed as Taj Mandir.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is scheduled to visit the Taj Mahal this week to inaugurate a number of facilities. "It is only proper that Shiva Chalisa should also be recited on this day and there was nothing wrong in our doing so", he said.

Deepak Sharma of RSD, who led the group, stated that the chanting of the hymn was justified as the monument was originally a Shiva temple. The Supreme Court pronounced the verdict today said that the lawyer appearing for the Archaeological Survey of India observed that Taj Mahal areas are facing environmental hazard. "There should be no problem in this because Muslims are already allowed to offer "namaz" on Fridays", he said.

Taking to Twitter, the actor questioned, "Will this world's wonder, Taj Mahal be a past in our future??"

The Gazette notification of January 1, 2001 states that Muslims will be allowed to offer prayers at the Taj mosque on Fridays even though it is closed for visitors.

UP Government courted controversy by leaving Taj Mahal out of its tourism booklet and BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) MLA Sangeet Som stirred a fresh debate saying that Taj Mahal was built by traitors and should find no place in Indian History.

Katiyar had on October 18 claimed that the Taj Mahal was, in fact, Lord Shiva's temple called "Tejo Mahal" which was converted into a mausoleum by Shahjahan.

The Supreme Court ordered the demolition of a multi-layer parking being constructed near the Taj Mahal after it was alleged that it may adversely impact the monument. As the number of visitors using their own mode of transport has increased in past few years which has brought in more smoke and pollution, the petition by MC Mehta got appropriate attention by the panel of judges who have now taken an important decision in a step to control the unnecessary construction and limit the number of vehicles around the Taj Mahal to save it from more harm.
