India says Kashmir rebels threaten to blow up Taj Mahal

Security around the 17th century marble monument had been tightened following an e-mail threat from the Lashkar-e-Taiba, a senior government official in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh where the Taj is located told Reuters.



"They have threatened to blow up the Taj Mahal, some other monuments and important government buildings in Lucknow," the official, who did not want to be identified, said.


Lucknow is the capital of Uttar Pradesh.


"We have enhanced security in and around the Taj Mahal which was mentioned among Lashkar-e-Taiba's main targets in the e-mail sent to the chief minister," the official said.


The Taj Mahal, India's monument to love in the northern city of Agra, is a huge draw for tourists from across the world.


India has blamed the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad groups for the December 13 attack on its parliament in which 14 people, including five attackers, died. Both groups have denied involvement in the attacks.


The official said Lashkar had also threatened to blow up a makeshift temple built at a disputed site in the ancient Indian town of Ayodhya where a 16th century mosque once stood.


Hindu zealots tore down the Babri mosque in December 1992, triggering widespread religious riots in which some 3,000 people were killed. The site is sacred to both Hindus and Muslims.


Security had already been tightened in and around the Ayodhya temple after a group of Hindu hardliners barged into the heavily-guarded complex in October.

So-called brahmaNas & sannyAsIs who could not preach, who instead of following ZrIman MahAprabhu who purified & welcomed or reaccepted fallen 'contaminated' souls back into the fold, (these falsante saints) rejected, id est, made them outcastes.

Is it any wonder our beloved India is overrun with...

sampradAya vihina ye...

Bv PrabhupAd called it "Mystic Factory" for producing new bogus gurus with bogus proposals, one after another, one after another.

Taj Mahal was a Lord Ziva Mandir.

Lord Ziva controls tamoguN = destruction.

Does that mean His Mandir should be destroyed?

If you don't educate the people correctly = Vedically, if the King, President or Prime Minister is loving his praja, then someone else will educated them incorrectly.
