LUCKNOW, INDIA, January 2, 2002: Security around the 17th century marble monument had been tightened following an e-mail threat from the Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based Kashmiri militant group, who New Delhi blamed for an attack on its Parliament last month. "They have threatened to blow up the Taj Mahal, some other monuments and important government buildings in Lucknow," said a government official. The official said Lashkar had also threatened to blow up a makeshift temple built upon the rubble of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya. There are plans to camouflage the Taj Mahal if hostilities break out between India and Pakistan.
