‘India made a lot of progress during the Mughal rule !’ – Nawab Iqbal, Former Education Minister

Nawab Iqbal, Former Education Minister

Samajwadi Party MLA and former Uttar Pradesh State Secondary Education Minister Nawab Iqbal Mehmood said, ‘The BJP Government is doing everything it can against the Muslim community, but what will happen by omitting the curriculum from history ? How can we forget that India made a lot of progress during the Mughal period ? These things are being done by BJP only for vote bank politics. The history of the Taj Mahal, Red Fort, and Qutub Minar is not only limited to India but the whole world knows that history’.
