Taj Mahal is a useless tomb

Posted by The Mindset on August 7, 2013

Every time Muslims are asked what they have contributed to India they come up with a standard answer, in their typical arrogant tone – “well, Muslims built Taj Mahal.”

Yeah right, you built Taj Mahal, a stupid useless tomb.

First there are still doubts that whether Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan or not. There are ample proof that a Hindu temple existed at the site of Taj Mahal.Visit the following web page for more info:

Even if Shah Jahan built Taj Mahal one is bound to question the benefit this grand building is yielding. What purpose this monument is serving ? except pampering the inflated ego of an uneducated moron.

The Mongol (Mughals) Shah Jahan looted the poor farmers of the Doab region – the region between Ganga and Yamuna – and used the money to build this useless tomb for his dead wife. Taj Mahal is a perfect example of misuse of power.

The Muslims never build any school or college even though they had enough money and resources. On the other hand they destroyed several educational institutes already present in the country – Nalanda and Taxila are examples.

I quoted Sir V.S. Naipaul in the post Muslims brought poverty to India – Sir V. S. Naipaul

V.S. Naipaul: I think I would like to go back just a little bit to the wretchedness of India, and to talk about what might have caused it, that people behave as though it was always there, it was an eternal. I don’t think it was an eternal. India was destroyed by the Muslim invaders, they ruled it severely and ravaged it for five to six centuries and they left nothing behind. They didn’t build a school, no institutions, so that was the cause of the poverty, that utter wretchedness where people had no faith in institutions, had no-one to appeal to ever, produced this idea of holy poverty. I think we have to understand that.

The fact is that the Taj Mahal is magnificently useless. The Muslims were never an educated, civilised lot. They were always the same uncivilised, barbarians that they are.

It’s only after 1947 that this tomb is generating some income from tourism but before that for nearly 300 years this tomb was completely useless. A public toilet has more value than Taj Mahal.

Taj Mahal shows all that had gone wrong with the Mogul rulers. They treated wealth as a means to personal aggrandizement. In their hands wealth ceased to be an instrument of production or growth or security and only served their personal agenda of ego pampering, luxury and of satisfying any stupid whim that crossed their poorly educated minds. This attitude towards wealth led to steady fall of Mogul emperors with each successive one being worse than his predecessor. The last Mogul emperor did not even know what governance is all about. He is remembered only for the kites that he used to fly and for the sad poems that he wrote. British soldiers did not have to make much effort to capture him and pack him off to exile.

    You are right. The Taj Mahal is useless. However it was built by a man who had too much power and, frankly, was more of an infidel than a Muslim. It is clear by your article that your perception of Muslims is colored by the west. In truth, the people who represent Muslims today are in fact self-serving individuals. The Saudi royal family come to mind. Don’t let these people make you forget that optics was discovered by a Muslim or that medieval medicine was greatly influenced by Ibn Sina. I could name other examples. I am a proud Muslim and I can guarantee you that I abhor the Mughals more than you do. They and other modern individuals give my people a bad name.

    well about mughal,s or mongols im agree with u guys , but saying that all muslims were uneducated , and they did nothing for socity is not correct, algebra is a clear example , magnifying glass , first modern hospital , surgical innovations,even coffee and guitar ,even first toothbrush ,the first parachute,distillation of liquids,crank shaft,windmill,and many other things, so we cant say that muslims did nothing ,as we cant say this for any other nation or any other group ,all nations and religion groups did many things for the socity and mankind ,but if we keep on saying,that , that did nothing and that did nothing people of this planet will never come closer and they keep generating bad ideas and bad thinking about each other
