Bench Assembles #Tajmahal

Petitioners Lawyer: There is a truth which the citizens of the country need to know about the Taj Mahal. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya

Petitioner (Dr. Rajneesh Singh): I have also filed many RTIs. I got to know about many rooms which have been locked and the authorities said that those rooms are locked because of security reasons. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHIghCourt

Petitioner: If there are many hidden things under the Taj Mahal that should be in public. Lawyer: I see one letter of Aurangzeb which he wrote to his Abba. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHIghCourt

State of UP Counsel: There is no jurisdiction and the petitioner lacks territorial jurisdiction #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

State of UP: There is already a suit filed in Agra. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Petitioner: I'm not on the fact that the land belongs to land Shiva or Allah-o-akbar #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

My main concern is about the closed rooms and we all should know what's there behind those rooms. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

I have also annexed one article regarding the age of the building. There is a scientific phenomenon to determine the age. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: You hold that structure is not made by Shah Jahan? Are we here to pronounce any judgement? As to whether who built it or what is the age of Taj Mahal? You need not to take us to historical facts which you believe. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: Now let's confine to the prayer. 1. You're seeking a mandamus seeking a fact finding committee. 2. You're seeking a mandamus to open doors. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: There has to be an infringement of any right and only then mandamus can be issued. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court : Are these issues debatable in a court of law? Are we judges trained and equipped with such things? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

How can we pronounce a verdict on this? What is your right? Lawyer: Freedom of Information Act. Court: Which is this act? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: Under right to information act you have the right to get information and you have various remedies under the act. Where is this right? To get a particular study conducted? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Petitioner: That's why I have prayed that a fact finding committee should be constituted. Court: Where is the right? Don't evade the question. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

[Taj Mahal Hearing] Petitioner: If any wrong history is taught to us? Court: That is your view. You say it is wrong. Can we say you are right or anyone else is wrong? Shukla: I'm reading the RTI act. Court: No, we have read that. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

[Taj Mahal Hearing] Petitioner: There is a freedom of information. Court: Whether the study you need is anyway connected to right to information. We want to know how you're connecting the prayer with RTI ? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing: Court: Go and research. Do M.A Do PhD. Then chose such a topic and if any institute disallows you to research on such a topic. Then come to us. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal hearing: Lawyer: I can show a judgment but we need some time. Court: I'm not going to adjourn this matter #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal hearing: Court: Aap kisse information maangre hai? Lawyer: Authorities se. Court: If they have said that rooms are closed because of security reasons then that's the information. If you're not satisfied then challenge it. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal hearing Please enrol yourself in MA, then go for NET, JRF and if any university denies you to research on such topic then come to us. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing Petitioner: Please allow me to go to those rooms. Court: Tomorrow you'll come and ask us to go to chambers of Hon'ble judges? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

[Taj Mahal Hearing] Please, don't make mockery of the PIL system. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing: Lawyer: Please allow me to show some judgement. Give some time. Court: This petition has been doing rounds in the media for days and now you're doing this? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing: Court: I welcome you to debate the issue with us in the drawing room and not in a court of law. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal hearing Court gives time till 2 pm. Matter to be heard after lunch. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing: Court resumes hearing. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing: Court: Yes, tell me the judgement? As to how far this issue is being raised by you? There's a principle called non justiciable Petitioner submits various judgments on Article 19 #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Taj Mahal Hearing: Court: What are you seeking is exploration of facts by way of a committee. That's none of your rights and it's not under the ambit of RTI Act #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: We are not convinced. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Lawyer: May I file it again with a fresh prayer? #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Court dictates its order #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: What we find I'd that this plea seeks a direction under 226 for commissioning a study in respect of history of Taj Mahal which is situated in Agra. The other prayer made is about opening the sealed doors inside Taj Mahal. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: We are of the opinion that petitioner has called upon us to give a verdict on completely a non justiciable issue #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Allahabad High Court in the Taj Mahal case: The prayers cannot be adjudicated by this court #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: Prayer regarding opening up of room, we may indicate that any historical research will involve a particular methodology. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Court: We are not able to entertain the writ petition. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Allahabad High Court dismisses the Taj Mahal petition #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya Taj Mahal #AllahabadHighCourt

Allahabad High Court order on Taj Mahal. Court says prayers in petition is for academicians, scholars and historians to consider. Not for court to exercise Article 226 jurisdiction. #Tajmahal #tejomahalaya #AllahabadHighCourt
