Ashoka Stambh Controversy Social Media Reaction After Shoka Pillar On The Roof Of New Parliament Building Inaugurated
Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the huge Ashoka Pillar on the roof of the new Parliament House on July 11. The new national emblem on the roof weighs 9,500 kg and is made of bronze. Its height is 6.5 meters. Ever since the new Ashoka Pillar was unveiled on the roof of Parliament House and photographs have surfaced, there has been a ruckus in the entire country.
Social media is torn in two. Some are saying that the government has tampered with the design of the Ashoka Pillar, while some are saying that this is the original design. One group on social media is saying that earlier the lion was calm and now it is roaring, while another group says that the government is destroying the reality of the national symbol.
The symbol of bravery. We should not think it by politically instead go historically 🙏 pic.twitter.com/Y81eMlUuDL

For last 36 hours many unemployed andolanjeevis are trying to find fault with Lion capital image atop new Parliament complex. Someone years back during ‘ Saraswati Vandana ‘ controversy had told “ Ma Saraswati it’s not your fault. You are sitting on a lotus. That’s our problem.” pic.twitter.com/HPZmCDCBbd

To completely change the character and nature of the lions on Ashoka’s pillar at Sarnath is nothing but a brazen insult to India’s National Symbol! pic.twitter.com/JJurRmPN6O

Those who made ‘Jai Shri Ram’ without devotion and made a ‘proclaimer of war’
Those who cast the lions of the Ashoka Pillar in the form of ‘perverted wrath’, devoid of peace
They are engrossed in the destruction of both religion and nation. https://t.co/D2KUsgpa4t
