I love Rampur and it was nice reading an article about its great history and heritage. The only part in the article which I couldn’t digest is this:
“It remains a mystery why this (Minaret of Raza library) unique architectural wonder didn’t attract a wider attention so far. Was it because it was constructed by a Muslim ruler?”
This shows the personal offence and overly resentful sentiments of the writer who must compulsively find a communal reason as an excuse for the not-so-wide popularity of the architectural marvels of Rampur. Please be reminded that Taj Mahal and scores of other monuments made by Mughals and Sultans remain popular and respected just as those made by Rajputs, Marathas etc.
