Leave my mahal alone

Heard about the salesman who sold the Taj Mahal to some gullible tourists? Well, it now appears that he didn't own it. Who does own it then? Well, Reuters informs us that "a leading Sunni Muslim body, some Shia Muslim leaders and a right-wing Hindu group allied to the former government are all laying claim to the tomb on the banks of the sacred but polluted Yamuna river."

Nobody, needless to say, wants the Yamuna.
