The Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha (ABKM) has requested PM Modi to name the new parliament building after Delhi’s last Hindu emperor, Prithviraj Chauhan or the founder of the city, Anangpal Tomar.

The Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha (ABKM) on Wednesday appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to name the new Parliament building after Delhi’s last Hindu emperor, Prithviraj Chauhan or the founder of the city, Anangpal Tomar. This comes a day after Delhi Congress urged the PM to name the upcoming parliament building after former president APJ Abdul Kalam.

The Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee had urged the PM to send a “message” about the country’s “communal harmony” by naming the new parliament building after APJ Abdul Kalam. However, the ABKM said that Delhi has a history that goes back thousands of years and a structure which defines the integrity of the nation should signify its long history.

Through historical evidence we know that the Hindu Tomar dynasty ruled the Delhi region from 736 AD to 1143 AD for a period of 400 years. Maharaja Anangpal Tomar II founded modern Delhi in 1052 AD which was also confirmed in a national seminar organised by the ministry of culture’s national monuments authority in February 2021. An inscription placed in the Delhi museum from 1383 AD also confirms the founders of Delhi to be the Tomar dynasty,” said ABKM president Mahendra Singh Tanwar in a letter to the prime minister Narendra Modi.

He added, “The Tomar Rajput dynasty of Delhi built several structures in and around Delhi after the city’s establishment in the early 8th century. Some of them are still present like the Anangpur Dam and the Surajkund in Faridabad,” he added.

Tanwar said that the 12th century warrior Prithviraj Chauhan was the last Indian emperor to rule Delhi. “People of this nation still remember Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan as a patriotic Hindu emperor of the Chauhan Rajput dynasty who fought against the enemies of this nation,” he added.
