‘Impure’ Names Of 2 Areas Changed At Sadhvi Pragya’s Behest

Bhopal: We know of names of cities, airports having been changed. But ever heard of areas of a city being renamed because they were ‘impure’?

Well, that is precisely what is happening in Bhopal.

Following a proposal by Bhopal MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the Bhopal Municipal Corporation has decided to change the ‘impure’ names of two areas in the capital of Madhya Pradesh, reported India Today.

Halalpur Bus Stand will now be known as Hanuman Garhi Bus Stand and Lal Ghati will be rechristened as Mahendra Narayan Das Ji Maharaj Sarveshwar Chauraha.

The controversial Sadhvi, who had famously said in July 2020 that COVID-19 will be wiped out from earth of people recited Hanuman Chalisa five times a day, explained why she had a problem with the old names.

“The word ‘halal’ in Halalpur is impure. By removing the symbol of slavery, we again have the power to change the history of India. We also stand to change the history of Bhopal and rebuild it,” Sadhvi said.

BMC president Kishan Suryavanshi supported the proposal Sadhvi’s proposal, which was passed at a meeting recently.
