Changing the name of places of Indian cities is totally influenced by politics. Such politics has demoralised for those minorities which are Indians by heart or birth. Recently Mr Obama said on PM Modi that, Muslims of India are Indian they should be keep closed culturally. But such a politics of changing names of places on basis of religion is not fair. The results of such a bad decisions may cause harm to integrity and brotherhood of nation. Here we are sharing a list of cities that are in the process of changing the name.
1Mughalsarai to Deen Dayal Nagar
Shyampur (Mughalsarai) once a Hindu dominant city of Chandauli district is located at 9.8 kilometres from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya was an Indian philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist, and political scientist. He was an ideologue and a guiding force for a nationalist model of governance and politics different from anglicized Nehruvian policies. The place should be aptly named on Deen Dayal to reflect his nationalist principles. (Update: Several movements got result, Yogi Ji, when became UP CM first thing he did, is rename MS to Deen Dayal Nagar)
2Ahmedabad to Karnavati (Recommended)
The area around Karnavati (Ahmedabad) has been inhabited since the 11th century by noble Hindus when it was known as Ashaval (or Ashapalli). Karandev I, the Solanki ruler of Anhilwara (modern Patan), won the war against the Bhil king of Ashaval and established a beautiful city naming it Karnavati on the banks of the Sabarmati river. Going through numerous incidents of naming tombs and places, it seems he named the city by his own name. To showcase himself as an astute administrator, Ahmed Shah claimed the formation day of Ahmedabad city as of February 26th, Wednesday, 1412. However, the fact was Karnavati (Ahmedabad) was formed 300 years back Ashapalli when it was under Hindu rulers.
3Allahabad to Prayag (Recommended)
Prayag is the most pious city which is considered as the most divine pilgrimage by Hindus after Vrindavan. The city was earlier known as Prayag, a name still fondly used by locals. Prayag is world’s ancient city and witnessed several divine incidents which have mentions in Puranas and Vedas. Prayag existed during the Vedic period and is the location where Brahma (the creator of the universe) personally attended Yagya.
Akbar built a fort on the banks of the Prayag Sangam and renamed the entire settlement Ilahabad (place of anti-god, Allah) in 1575. Later it was known as Allahabad. The pious name of Prayag was changed to anti-Vedic Islam name.
4Aurangabad to Sambhaji Nagar (Recommended)
The Ellora town was developed and have traced back to 50 BCE – 900 AD. There are several breathtaking monuments which were created by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists.
The city now is a tourism hub, surrounded by many historical monuments, including the Ajanta Caves and Ellora Caves, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Khadki was the original name of the village nearby Ellora structures, which was made a capital city by Malik Ambar, the minister of cruel raider Murtaza Nizam, Shah of Ahmadnagar. In 1653 when Jihadi prince Aurangzeb was appointed the Viceroy of the Deccan for the second time, he made Fatehnagar his capital and renamed it on his own name as Aurangabad. Aurangabad is sometimes referred to as Khujista Bunyad by the Chroniclers of Aurangzeb’s reign to flatter and glorify his evil control.
5Bhopal to Bhojpal (Recommended)
According to the recorded history of Bharat, originally Bhopal was founded by the King Bhoj of the Parmar dynasty (1000 AD – 1055 AD), who ruled from his capital at Dhar. Due to irrigation problem in the area, a Dam (pal) was constructed by the King Bhoj under the able guidance of his ministers. It helped a lot for the prosperity of locals and they started calling the place as Bhojpal. A magnificent Bhagwan Shiv temple complex was constructed by King at Bhojpur, which is currently located 28 km from present Bhopal.
After the death of emperor Aurangzeb, Jihadi Khan started using unethical and evil means on several local chieftains in the politically unstable Malwa region. In 1709, he took on the lease of Berasia estate and later annexed several territories in the region to Islamize the Bhopal State.
