NEW DELHI, INDIA, July 21, 2001: More than a dozen members of the Shiv Sena party were arrested July 21 when they started to scrub the floors of the mausoleum with cow urine and water from the Ganges River, according to the Associated Press. Hindus hold both the river and cows as sacred. On July 15, the 17th century Muslim monument was visited by Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf and his wife. A dubious theory circulates in India that the Taj Mahal was once a Hindu temple, perhaps prompting the attempted purification of the place built in the 17th century by Muslim emperor Shah Jehan for his wife.
