She said, “Years after independence, the manner in which religious sentiments of people are being instigated under a conspiracy, under the pretext of Gyanvapi, Mathura, Taj Mahal and other places will not strengthen the country. BJP needs to take note of it.” 

In the lates in the Gyanvapi masdjid dispute, a plea has been filed in Varanasi court to demolish the wall beside wazukhana where a Shivling is claimed to be found during the survey. 

Meanwhile,  The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court heard a petition seeking the opening of closed rooms in the Taj Mahal on Thursday.
