In a shocking incident that could reflect bad thoughts on the holy event of the annual Urs of Emperor Shahjahan, some offenders shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans inside the Taj Mahal on the last day of Urs, which caused a massive backlash on social media.
The video footage of youth clearly shouting the slogan spread like wildfire soon after the incident in no time. In a few hours, security agencies climbed to search for the youth identified in the footage as the one shouting the slogan. He is yet to be arrested.
As per the sources in the Archaeological Survey of India, ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans were passionately shouted when a green ‘chadar’ was being brought through the Royal Gate of the Taj Mahal by devotees (young men and children).
Soon after the chadar crossed the doorstep of the gate, a youth stepped forward and shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’. He then turned back and suddenly disappeared in the crowd. Security agencies searched for him in the nearby Tajganj area as well as the rest of Agra.
Munawwar Hussain Zaidi of the Urs Committee said, adding that the committee has decided to file a criminal case against the youth who shouted the slogan and his face is clearly visible in the clip.
