Several Shia clerics have sharply criticized the incident and demanded stricter rules for tourists visiting the Imambara, which is used by Shia Muslims to organize condolence meetings during Muharram. Shia cleric Maulana Saif Abbas said, “This is a serious matter. There should be an inquiry and strict action should be taken against the girl. Imambara is not just a tourist destination. It is also a religious place and such activities cannot be allowed inside its premises.” Also Read – Ladki Ka Attitude: The girl was hitting too much style, then herself became a laughing stock. watch this video

The monument was built in 1784 by Asaf-ud-Daula, the fourth Nawab of Awadh, as a major famine relief project. Its central hall is believed to be one of the largest arched halls in the world without the support of any kind of beams of wood, iron or stone. There is also the famous ‘Bhulbhulaiya’ (Labyrinth) in the Bada Imambara. The term became popular because it is very difficult for visitors to navigate without a guide.
