Change name of Ghaziabad

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Various Cities of Uttar Pradesh, including Ghaziabad, have irrelevant names that don't belong to the majority of it's residents. These names hurt self-respect of people and remind it's residents of a oppressive past. Besides The names of these cities should be kept on names of great people who sacrificed their lives in the struggle of Indian national freedom. When we say Ghaziabad, we say some Ghazi to be "Aabaad". Now the question is who is this ghazi that should be aabad. When we say, Muradabad, we say Muraad Aabad. The question is who is this muraad that should be Aabaad. Why can't we name these cities as khudiram bose, subhas chandra bose, Lala Lajpat Rai, Gopal Krishna Gokhle. These names belong to us and this way, we can convey our coming generations that our freedom has come at a cost and how these people have sacrificed their lives for the freedom for this Great Nation.

गाजियाबाद, फैजाबाद, मुरादाबाद, फिरोजाबाद, शिकोहाबाद आदि नाम ना केवल अत्यंत अनर्गल से लगते हैं बल्कि ये नाम कहीं से भी हमारे संस्कृति व इतिहास से सम्बन्धित भी नहीं हैं। जब हम मुरादाबाद कहते हैं तो किसी मुराद के आबाद रहने की कामना कर रहे होते हैं, फैजाबाद कहते समय फैज के आबाद होने की कामना, गाजियाबाद अर्थात् गाजी के आबाद होने की कामना। प्रश्न ये है कि ये मुराद, फैज, गाजी कौन है जिसके आबाद होने की हम कामना करते हैं ?
क्या हम इन शहरों का नामकरण स्वतंत्रता संग्राम के बलिदानियों के नाम पर नहीं रख सकते जिससे कि हम आने वाली पीढ़ियों को उनसे जोड़ सकें और उन्हें ये पता चले कि स्वतंत्रता कितने त्याग व बलिदान के पश्चात प्राप्त हुई है

I appeal Hon'ble Governor Shri Ram Naik Ji & Chief Minister Office to take appropriate action in order to change names of all such cities of Uttar Pradesh. This can, and must be done in other states too, but as a common citizen of this state, I request Hon'ble Governor, CM and Prime Minister to take all necessary steps for the above-said purpose.
