Supreme Court dismisses petition to open closed rooms of Taj Mahal, says HC’s decision is correct
Supreme Court: The Supreme Court has today (21 October) dismissed the petition seeking the opening of 22 closed rooms of the Taj Mahal. Earlier, the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court had dismissed this petition saying that the petitioner should go and study history. Today, while hearing the Supreme Court, said that the High Court had taken the right decision. The petition appears to have been filed for publicity rather than public interest.
In fact, after the dismissal of the petition from the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court, the petitioner’s lawyer Rudra Vikram Singh said that the order was challenged in the Supreme Court. Now the Supreme Court has also rejected it. The Allahabad High Court had said that any historical research is needed for the demand to open the room, we are not able to entertain the writ petition, this petition is dismissed.
Demand for formation of fact finding committee
A bench of Justice MR Shah and Justice MM Sundaresh dismissed the petition, terming it as “publicity interest litigation”. The bench refused to interfere with the Allahabad High Court order which had dismissed the petitioner’s plea in March 2022. At the same time, the petitioner demanded the formation of a fact-finding committee to study the actual history of the Taj Mahal and to pacify and clarify the dispute.
The doors of these rooms are closed for decades
Let us tell you that in the petition filed, a demand has been made to open the 22 rooms present in the Taj Mahal. From this it can be known whether there is an idol or inscription of any deity inside them or not. These 22 of the Taj Mahal have been closed for many decades. According to historians, it is said that there are 22 rooms under the main tomb and the jasmine floor, which is still closed.
