NDTV Published on Jul 9, 2018
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to overturn a ban on outsiders entering the Taj Mahal complex in Agra for namaz or Friday prayers, saying the monument "is among the seven wonders of the world" and needs to be protected. Judges AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said there were several other mosques in Agra and those from outside the town could offer prayers there. A petition had challenged a January 24 order barring outsiders from offering Friday prayers at the mosque in the Taj Mahal complex.
