#ASI_Glorifying_Aurangzeb trends as Hindu protest ASI plan to renovate Aurangzeb’s Sheesh Mahal

Archaeological Survey of India has decided to spend an estimated Rs 2.5 crore to spruce up a dilapidated 17th-century monument — Sheesh Mahal in Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh — where, according to officials, the preliminary ceremony of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb’s coronation took place in 1658.

Aurangzeb was responsible for destroying various Hindu temples. It has also been documented that four million Indians were killed under Aurangzeb, who reintroduced Jiziya tax on non-Muslims and also forcibly converted Hindus to Islam.

Actually there are thousands of ancient monuments in India like temples, forts etc. which are in miserable condition, but still ASI chooses to spend crores on a forgotten Aurangzeb monument ?

To protest against such move by ASI, Hindus took to Twitter and raised their voices with demand to stop such work. As many users started tweeting with hashtag #ASI_Glorifying_Aurangzeb, it became one of the top 20 national trends in India. For brief period of time, it was on 11th spot.

Here are some of the tweets in this trend :

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti also urged Shri. Prahlad Patel, Hon. Minister for Culture to cancel ASI decision to renovate Aurangzeb’s monument.
