Why Is The History Of Qutub Minar So Controversial?

On 21st November 2012, a history writer Mr. Neeraj Atri published an RTI. The case was related to the history of Qutub Minar. Mr. Neeraj Atri wanted information related to the book of NCERT Class 7, about the fact on Qutub Minar in “Our Past 2” that Qutub Minar was built by two sultans of Delhi, Qutub Din Aybak and Iltutmish.

He asked the Indian government 5 questions. In the first 2 questions, he asked for the documents and historical evidence from the government, which proves that Qutub Din Aybak and Iltutmish built Qutub Minar. In the third and fourth questions, he asked for the names of those people, whose approval was sought. In the last question, he asked if the Indian government has any file notings on this fact or not.
