Hindu organisation protests outside Qutub Minar, demands it to be renamed to ‘Vishnu Stambh’

Several members of the Hindu organization Mahakal Manav Sewa on Tuesday staged a protest outside the national capital’s famous monument Qutub Minar, demanding it to be renamed ‘Vishnu Stambh’. 

This is not the first time someone has claimed the minaret to originally be Vishnu Stambh.

Earlier, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) spokesman Vinod Bansal had also claimed that Qutub Minar was originally Vishnu Stambh. Bansal claimed that the structure was built with materials obtained after demolishing 27 Hindu-Jain temples. 

The superimposed structure was built just to tease the Hindu community, he said.

“We demand that all the 27 temples, which were demolished at the site in the past, be rebuilt and Hindus are allowed to offer prayers there,” Vinod Bansal added.
