The Uttar Pradesh Tourism Department recently released ‘Uttar Pradesh Paryatan – Apaar Sambhavnaayein‘ (Uttar Pradesh Tourism – Limitless Possibilities) — a 32-page booklet that features most of the prominent heritage and cultural sites in the state. However, the omission of the Taj Mahal from the booklet triggered a controversy. An active social media user, author Chetan Bhagat took to Twitter to voice his opinion about the booklet. Referring to a Washington Post article titled “Is India neglecting the Taj Mahal because it was built by Muslims?”, he posted this question — “Did you ever, as an Indian, saw the Taj as a ‘Muslim’ monument (as @washingtonpost is saying it’s being neglected because it is Muslim)”.

While 84 per cent, at the time of writing, voted that they saw the monument as an Indian heritage site, others in the comments section went to town correcting the best-selling author’s grammar. Many of them were quick to point out that his sentence should ideally have been “Did you ever, as an Indian, SEE the Taj as a ‘Muslim’ monument (as @washingtonpost is saying it’s being neglected because it is Muslim)”.

This is his tweet.

Here are some of the (hilarious) responses he has gotten so far.
