The Delhi Minorities Commission (DMC) has sought the response of the Archaeological Survey of India on steps taken to dispel claims that the Khirki mosque -- a well known Tughlaq era monument -- was a fort of Rajput warrior Maharana Pratap.
"DMC has asked ASI to explain what action it has taken so far to refute the claim that the said mosque was a fort of Maharana Pratap," Khan said.
The commission has also sought to know what steps have been taken by the ASI to prevent erasing of the word "mosque" from its signboards, by miscreants.
"Reports have been consistently published saying that the word mosque is being repeatedly erased from the ASI signboard amid propaganda of some locals that this Tughlak era monument is a fort of Maharana Pratap," Khan said, adding the ASI's reply over the notice is awaited.
