Shah Jahan’s descendant ‘disputes BJP MP’s claim over Taj Mahal

Agra: Prince Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy, who claims to be the descendant of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, disputed the recent claim of BJP deputy Rajsamand Diya Kumari in Rajasthan, the country where the Taj Mahal became built originally belonged to the former royal Jaipur family and it was purchased by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan.

In a video statement on Thursday, Tucy said that the whole of present day India as well as Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal were part of the Mughal Empire and that there was no need to get land.

To note, Diya Kumari’s statement came after a recent petition in the high court, rejected on Thursday, seeking guidance from the ASI to open 20 rooms in the Taj Mahal to prevent the possible presence of Hindu to control idols.

Diya Kumari, herself a member of the former royal family of Jaipur, had claimed that she was in possession of documents that the land of Taj Mahal belonged to the royal family of Jaipur.

In response to the claim, Prince Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy called it “false” and asked Diya Kumari to read history.

“The Mughals were rulers of the land that occupied present-day India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh and more, so they had no need to occupy land. The Mughals had queens from Rajput families and Shah Jahan may have had some palaces as well. received gifts from his in-laws (Rajputs), “said Prince Tucy, who visited the Taj Mahal on the occasion of Shah Jahan’s annual ‘Urs’.

“I can challenge Diya Kumari if she has a document about the title of the royal family of Jaipur on land on which Taj Mahal is built. Rajputs are known to keep their word (zuban ke pakke), but such claims are for cheap publicity by Diya Kumari, which does not suit the Rajputs who have such glorious traditions in Indian history, “said Prince Tucy, who lives in Hyderabad and is currently doing business in Oman but disguises himself as Mughal emperor in public.

Prince Tucy recalled that the Jaipur family was his ‘nanihal’ (mother and grandparents ‘house) because Mughals’ wives came from this family. He also asked the timing of the BJP MP’s claim.
