Name changes of cities

While--

Bombay became Mumbai
Simla became Shimla
Banaras became Varanasi
Baroda became Vadodara
Calcutta became Kolkata
Madras became Chennai
Poona became Pune
Bangalore became Bengaluru

The following name changes are pending--

Ahmedabad to Karnavati
Allahabad to Tirth Raj Prayag
Aurangabad to Sambhajinagar
Delhi to Indraprastha
Patna to Pataliputra
Alibag to Shribag
Hyderabad to Bhagyanagaram
Alibag to Shribag

While anglicised names can be changed , the muslim names are finding it hard to be changed--for fear of offending every politicians favourite vote bank.

and the chaddi brigade is hell bent upon changing everything which sounds muslim

I dont know about the remaining ..but ..you have no rights to claim a name change for Hyderabad. The city was basically started by muslims around 1500 ..where there was no city at all.Moreover the bhagmati...is lover of muslim ruler..who later got converted to Islam and got renamed as Hyder Mahal..and thus came Hyderabad.

Why because Muslims still live and are a part of India, while the Brits came, saw, conquered, looted and left.

Re: Name changes of cities

Indian bhau,

Correction. Its not chaddi brigade, but fugga chaddi brigade

The fugga chaddi brigade is only interested in name changes. The same fugga chaddi objected to renaming Marathwada University to Ambedkar University.

They conveniently target Muslim sounding names for name change. Indian bhau, thanks for history of Hyderabad. I never knew the history of the name and how the city was created. I believe there is one in Pakistan too by the same name.

In any case, the fugga chaddi brigade is also anti Dalit. They are already making noises against plans of Dadar station in Mumbai being renamed as Chaityabhoomi to honor Dr. Ambedkar.

I shudder to think what will happen if we let BJP win for a single term because it will be RSS rule by proxy. RSS is the most dangerous and radical organisation which is very effective at brain washing Hindus.

Uncle..they are wanting to change the original change...the place was actually named bhagyanagar to begin with...thankyou for playing fuggas and chaddis though...always nice to see colourful fuggas and chaddis colouring the sky...

Re: Name changes of cities

Reduce the peaceful list to Allahabad, Ahmedabad, Aurangabad and Aibag -

Patna and Delhi are not really muslim names.

Delhi was so known even during Prithviraj Chauhan's time. Indraprastha is a small part of Delhi.

As per one version, Bhagyanagar was named after Bhagmati, who married Quli Qutub Shah (or was his courtesan if i go by other accounts) , the founder of Hyderabad. When the queen converted and changed her name to Begum Hyder Mahal, the name changed to Hyderabad. It was named as Bhagyanagar for a very short time. Now in this case, the founder himself was peaceful and hence chose such a name.

Re: Name changes of cities

allahabad to prayag is justified.

its the point of triveni-sangam and is also witness to the largest single congregation of human beings anywhere on earth [mahakumbh mela].

Re: Name changes of cities

Fugga chaddi brigade is always busy with irrelevant topics like renaming cities and streets and what not

So does not matter if its called Dillika or Dilli-Gand-ka ... people will still call it Dilli.

Same goes to many roads in Mumbai. The famous Cadell road was renamed to something else, but ask any taxi wala or BEST bus conductor and the common answer is 'Cadell Road'.

Even Napeansea road has a name of someone, but people call it Napeansea road only. Same with Kemps Corner.

Fugga chaddi's should seriously do something useful like not opening their mouths
