[quote name='Amatya Rakshas' date='12 October 2011 - 10:13 AM' timestamp='1318394119' post='113288']And then soon we'll again have PN Oak's Taj Mahal = Hindu Temple[/quote]

I see Dhu beat me to it. But I can provide a link at least:



AR, on the topic of Taj Mahal, I think you will find it a most valuable use of your time to

[color="#0000FF"]read IF member Ishwa's posts "Some question(mark)s concerning Mughal architecture" in the Medieval History thread.[/color]

After reading that, you can make up your own mind.



I think Ishwa really ought to publish his findings as a book (as also his writings on Yavana/Yauna** etc). At the very least, there's the facility these days for him to self-publish (which would also help others in referencing his work, instead of them having to link to a forum for their authority), besides Ishwa putting his work on scribd etc and even on blogs.



While PN Oak's writings might be found crude and rather unscholarly, his being convinced that the Taj Mahal was Hindu* turns out to have been true in all likelihood - going by Ishwa's work in this matter.



(* "Hindu" not just in the sense that the Taj Mahal was built by Hindus - which IIRC was long admitted even by those who think the TM is a structure ordered by mughals - but that it was owned by Hindus and constructed on Hindu instigation and not that of islam, before islam took it.)

Amazing how equal equals are never "deployed" for such characterizations - Colonizer never gets ridiculed for its appropriations.[/quote]A very perceptive observation. I've always managed to overlook this. Yet isn't that what the whole pompous (thieving) "Arische Europeans are behind the Vedas and Samskritam" assertion really is?



[[color="#0000FF"]** ADDED:[/color] IIRC the other Ishwa posts referred to was on Yavana having a different meaning in Skt lit, separate from its use for Ionian Greeks (c.f. Iranian Yauna) and hence all Greeks.]
