Ashish Bohora started this petition to Government of India and

"What's in a name?", said Shakespeare. As it turns out, A LOT. 

The naming system in India has evolved over centuries as a practice to identify people for their profession, religion, caste, and so on. The current system of recording and representing someone's name on official Government documents is "First-name__Father's-name__Surname" by default.

This system is HEAVILY BIASED .. it is anti-women .. it also showcases caste and religion of the person in many cases .. millions of people in India get softly and subconsciously discriminated against by the MERE mention of their full name even today .. the dirty, archaic, discriminatory, and abhorrent system of caste-based, profession-based, or religion-based "Surnames" has led to deep division in society and make it near impossible for social justice and equality to penetrate through.

It has let political feuds continue and not allow for the complete and unanimous integration of India in a socio-political context as should rightly have happened after Independence.

This petition is to REQUEST the Government of India to PUT A STOP to this practice of naming system on Government documents and forms going ahead.

The Government MUST actively and proactively SWITCH to a system of record and representation of the name of a person as "First-name__Mother's-name__Father's-name" on ALL OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT AND LEGAL DOCUMENTS including OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTITY CARDS and Documents.  

Thus, names recorded and represented on OFFICIAL Govt Documents AND Govt issued IDENTITY CARDS should be in the following format:

"First-name__Mother's-name__Father's-name"

We are NOT asking the Government or people to stop recording religion or caste -- that is entirely their choice. We are NOT asking people to STOP exercising their fundamental right of choosing whatever name they want for themselves -- that is entirely their choice.

All this petition says is that the OFFICIAL system of recording and representing names must be "First-name__Mother's-name__Father's-name" by DEFAULT. Those who wish to have their name changed to whatever it suits them can easily do so via affidavits from a Court of Law as it happens right now anyway.

This NEW Proposed Practice and System will NOT ONLY ENSURE respect to mothers and women alike but also be able to control and curb soft subconscious discrimination against people on the basis of their caste and religion by the MERE MENTION of their name.
