    New Delhi: Fundamentalists are found in every society and very often they stir up unnecessary controversies. Unfortunately, religious leaders seem to be competing with each other when it comes to making controversial statements. In the latest edition to this episode, Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopananda Saraswati has created a flutter by describing the Taj Mahal as Temple of Lord Shiva.
    He has claimed that Taj Mahal was built on Lord Shiva Temple and the truth would come out after seven basements of Taj Mahal are thrown open.
    Attack on Sai Baba
    Earlier also, Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopananda Saraswati of Dwarka Peeth stirred controversy by saying Sai Baba was a devoted Muslim who used to eat beef and recite Fatiha for deceased.
    He also accused him of fraud and said 'Sabka Malik Ek' were the words of Guru Nanak and not of Sai Baba.
    Need to control population control
    Recently, Shankaracharya argued that 'one wife and two children law' should be binding on every citizen of the country, irrespective of his caste and religion.
    He further argued that it won't be possible to sustain the current massive rise in population in India.
    Though many find merit in his statement, but there are others who feel that this is being targeted against one minority.
