What was the administration doing when the religious fanatics took control of the palace?
Vidisha (Madhya Pradesh) – About 70 km from here lies a city called Udaipur, home to a 1000 year old palace belonging to the Parmar dynasty. This heritage site was illegally taken over by some religious fanatics who had put up a board proclaiming it to be private property. The administration, on orders of the Tehsildar, removed the private property sign board put by one Kazi Mohammed Syed Irfan Ali. He was also fined 5000 rupees. Ali was also running a madrasa at this place. (What was the archaeological department doing for so many years?

Ali also claimed that the ownership of the property was transferred to his family by emperors Jahangir and Shah Jahan. The administration acted after this news spread on the social media.
