New Delhi, August 27 (KMS): The Modi-led fascist Indian government in its attempts to erase the Muslim culture and imprints from India continues to replace the names of Muslim places with Hindu names.
In the latest such move, the BJP-RSS government, headed by Yogi Adityanath, is preparing to rename Sultanpur as Kush Bhawanpur in Uttar Pradesh state. Kush is the name of Hindu Lord Ram’s son.
A senior official of the Board of Revenue confirmed that a proposal to this effect has been sent to the state government which will get it approved by the state cabinet.
The BJP MLA from Lambhua (Sultanpur), Devmani Dwivedi, had raised the issue in the Assembly. Thereafter, the district magistrate of Sultanpur and Divisional Commissioner of Ayodhya had sent a recommendation to the state government and Board of Revenue to rename the district as Kush Bhawanpur, citing the ancient history of Sultanpur in the gazetteer.
If the proposal is accepted, Sultanpur will be the third district to be renamed by the Yogi Adityanath government after Faizabad that was replaced as Ayodhya and Allahabad as Prayagraj.
On the other hand, Mayor of South Delhi Municipal Corporation, Mukesh Suryan, has given anticipatory approval to the change of name of Mohammadpur, a village in South Delhi limits, to Madhavpur.
