Fringe group opposes renovation of Sheesh Mahal

A Hindu fringe group threatened to demolish Sheesh Mahal in Shalimar Bagh if the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) continues with restoration of the monument. After visiting the heritage site, United Hindu Front (UHF) international working president Jai Bhagwan Goyal cautioned the ASI to wrap up work immediately. “The archaeology department should abandon its scheme or UHF will demolish the structure and the department will be responsible for it,” Goyal, also a Delhi BJP member, said. Many fringe groups have been opposing the restoration of the Palace and have threatened to take action if the ASI goes forward with its work.
