MLA spews venom at Taj Mahal 17.10.2017 DNA: Top News
Controversial BJP MLA Sangeet Som ignited a firestorm of controversy by saying the Taj Mahal was built by a "traitor who wanted to wipe out Hindus", and that the Unesco World Heritage Site was a "blot on the Indian culture". The Uttar Pradesh government quickly distanced itself from the remarks, but stopped short of condemning them, while the Opposition got an opportunity to corner the BJP. In a video, Som is heard telling a gathering at Sisaulin in Western UP's Meerut: "What history are you talking about? The creator of Taj Mahal (Shah Jahan) was a traitor who imprisoned his own father and wanted to wipe out Hindus from Hindustan," said Som, known for his hate speeches. In fact, Shah Jahan did not imprison his father. He was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. The MLA from Meerut's Sardhana was referring to "people's disappointment" when the 17th century structure's mention was removed from the UP tourism department booklet, a move that had triggered shock and outrage. "Taj Mahal" was trending on Twitter ...

From Adityanath to Sangeet Som: BJP's complicated relationship with Taj Mahal 16.10.2017 DNA: Top News
Recently, BJP MLA Sangeet Som rekindled the party’s bizarre hate-hate relationship with the Taj Mahal, a monument whose Mughal history makes it an easy target. In comments that came soon after the Yogi Adityanath government reportedly left out the Taj Mahal from an official tourism booklet, Som said, "Many people were pained to see that the Taj Mahal was removed from the list of places (tourist destinations). What type of history? "Is this history that the person who built the Taj Mahal imprisoned his father? Do you call it history when the one who built the Taj targeted many Hindus in Uttar Pradesh and Hindustan?" Addressing a gathering at Sisoli village after inaugurating a statue of 8th century king Anangpal Singh Tomar, Som said invaders of India have been glorified in history. Referring to 'kalank katha', or the black mark of history, he said, " Whether it is Babar, Akbar or Aurangzeb, the government is working to erase them from history." The lives and achievements of the "real great men" of the ...

Mamata Banerjee alleges senior BJP leader of instigating violence in Darjeeling, protests troop withdrawal 16.10.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday levelled serious allegations against senior BJP leaders Centre’s decision to withdraw forces from Darjeeling hills. “The Centre has, without discussing with the state, pulled out all the force from the hills. Taking such a unilateral decision is unfortunate on the part of the Central government. It is a politically and administratively bad decision. It is an undemocratic and unethical decision taken at a time when we are trying to restore peace there and recent recovery of arms and ammunition proves the involvement of Northeast insurgent groups in the violence that had taken place,” she lashed out at the Centre during a press conference at Nabanna, the state secretariat, after meeting representatives of political parties from the hills. She said she had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and hoped something positive would come from there. She alleged that the BJP was trying to engineer an unrest at the hills ...

PM in city for mega rally today 16.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming back to his home state on Monday for another rally. But, unlike his earlier outings, this one is going to be a game-changer, both for its scale — more than seven lakh BJP workers are expected to attend — and for the timing — his speech should do the job of a morale booster for party workers who will be tackling the anti-incumbency factor in the poll-bound state. The PM will be addressing party workers in Bhat village near Ahmedabad. Political observers feel every word that will come from the PM will ignite the passion in lakhs of party workers. It's not the anti-incumbency sentiments, the party also has to find ways to bounce back in the face of widespread social media campaigns against it. But party workers have faith in their leader. Calling him a role model, BJP Yuva Morcha vice-president in Ahmedabad, Poras Patel, said, "Modi means Gujarat for us. He is the synonym for development, and he is our pride. He has been always a source of inspiration for us and his ...

Andy Serkis reveals he almost refused to play Gollum in 'Lord of The Rings' 14.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Actor Andy Serkis has revealed he nearly turned down the iconic role of Gollum from the Lord of the Rings films. The 53-year-old actor said he did not want to just voice act a character, reported The Guardian newspaper. "When I started doing Lord of the Rings, I liked the gamble. Originally, I heard it was going to be like doing a voice for a digital character, and I wasn't interested, but then I met Peter Jackson and he said, 'We want an actor to play the role, be on set and make decisions for that character'," Serkis said. Since featuring in the hit Peter Jackson-directed film franchise, he has been Hollywood's most sought-after actor for roles powered by motion capture technique. Other blockbuster voice act roles to Serkis' credit are - the title part as the giant ape in King Kong and the intelligent chimpanzee Caesar in the Planet of the Apes trilogy. The actor added he had an "epiphany" while playing King Kong. "That was the epiphany because it was like: you can now play anything. Then, as the ...
