BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia, Surendra Singh has sparked a controversy saying that Agra’s iconic Taj Mahal will be renamed as Ram Mahal.

The MLA also said UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was a descendent of the Maratha warrior king Chhatrapati Shivaji and claimed that though Muslim invaders used every way possible to destroy the Indian culture, it would all change in the present “golden age of Uttar Pradesh”, reported Indian Express.

“If God wishes, you will get to know very soon that the Taj Mahal in now Ram Mahal or Shiv Mahal. The Muslim attackers used every way possible to destroy the Indian culture, but now the golden time has come in Uttar Pradesh in form of a Shivaji descendent… It (Taj Mahal) will change. It was a Shiva temple and Taj Mahal will again become a national heritage or a Ram temple. It will be turned into a Ram temple and its name will change… It will all change due to Yogi (Adityanath) ji,” Singh said while talking to media.

The BJP leader is known is for stoking controversies, last year in the aftermath of the brutal gang-rape of a teenage girl in Hathras, he had said that rapes could be stopped if girls are taught ‘sanskaar’.
