Imitation may be a form of flattery but Bangladesh Taj Mahal is built for poor people who cant efford to go to India. If 1 million people came to BD Taj year, this will help others develop more business in the area which end up helping local poor people. Think about it, hotels will be build slowly, restaurant will be build, shopping mall all these will help local market as well as Bangladesh Tourism. Now no one is claiming Taj Mahal was built in Bangladesh or claim to be the original. Everyone knows that. However, this will help those who are in Bangladesh. Indian government is complaining about Bangladesh Taj Mahal designed for poor people by a one rich man. India calling Bangladesh a copyright thief while Dubai just announce the same thing. I wonder what India will say now.
