The Sunni Waqf Board on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that Taj Mahal is owned by the Almighty so it must be listed as property of the religious body.

The board had asked the Apex Court to list the world’s seventh wonder as its property for practical purposes like several other monuments built by Mughal emperors.

The board’s counsel told the Supreme Court that ‘no human can claim ownership of the marble monument.’

“It is Waqf board property because it is allowed to perform rituals,” Waqf Board’s lawyer said.

Last week, the board had been asked by the Supreme Court to back up its claim on the 17th century monument by producing ownership documents signed by Shah Jahan, the Mughal emperor who commissioned the Taj Mahal.

The board has also urged the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) to consider the Taj Mahal to be registered as its property, only for maintenance purpose.

“Board does not have documents to show Taj Mahal is Waqf property. By virtue it is a Waqf property and is entitled to manage the Taj Mahal,” lawyers of Waqf board said.

The Supreme Court has set the next date of hearing on July 27.
