Taj is national monument

This recent news regarding the Taj Mahal is clear indication of the Indian democracy crying for some new reform. It doesn't mean that the democracy is flawed, but there are gaps that do affect the society at large. You cant blame the Wakf board alone, specially since the RSS and VHP are claiming that Ayodhya is their personal turf to do as they please. Its time the country and government clearly defines the boundaries for religion and state. Till now, we have followed a system where the State and Religion both acknowledge, respect and live with each other, but certain extreme thinkers are taking this marriage beyond its limits.

- from Yahoo news: Taj is national monument, not Muslim property
