Below is description from The Last Mughal, what Britishers recommended for Majestic Jama Masjid of Delhi.
‘Hugh Chichester was typical. ‘There are several mosques in the city most beautiful to look at’ he wrote to his father. ‘But I should like to see them all destroyed. The rascally brutes desecrated our churches and graveyards and I do not think we should have any regard for their stinking religion’. Charles Raikes though the Jama Masjid should be saved but converted into a church, ‘and name each stone after a Christian martyr’.
