    Default Delhi's Aurangzeb Road will be renamed after APJ Abdul Kalam




    New Delhi: Aurangzeb Road in Lutyen's Delhi will soon be known as APJ Abdul Kalam Road with the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) on Friday giving its nod in this regard.

    "There were requests from certain sections of the society for changing the name of the road as a tribute to the former President. The matter was placed before the council today which unanimously gave a go ahead for the same," NDMC vice chairman Karan Singh Tanwar told PTI.

    He said NDMC is the final authority and no further statutory clearance is required for the renaming.

    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, also a member of the NDMC and who was present during the meeting, lauded the decision.


    Following the former President's demise last month, there had been a demand from many sections of the society for dedicating a road after him as a token of love and tribute to the "missile man".

    BJP MP Maheish Girri had also written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to consider renaming Aurangzeb Road after Kalam to correct "wrongs" of history and had said it will be a fitting tribute to the memory of Kalam, widely regarded as the people's President.

    "Happy to share that NDMC has today decided to rename AurangzebRoad as Dr APJ #AbdulKalamRoad. Thank u all for your support in this campaign!," Giri said in a tweet today.

    Aurangzeb road begins at the Taj Mansingh hotel near India Gate and joins Safdarjung Road near the official residence of the Prime Minister.

    Something i read about Aurangzeb................is it true?????

    Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb: Bad Ruler or Bad History?

    Of all the Muslim rulers who ruled vast territories of India from 712 to 1857 CE, probably no one has received as much condemnation from Western and Hindu writers as Aurangzeb. He has been castigated as a religious Muslim who was anti-Hindu, who taxed them, who tried to convert them, who discriminated against them in awarding high administrative positions, and who interfered in their religious matters. This view has been heavily promoted in the government approved textbooks in schools and colleges across post-partition India (i.e., after 1947). These are fabrications against one of the best rulers of India who was pious, scholarly, saintly, un-biased, liberal, magnanimous, tolerant, competent, and far-sighted.

    Fortunately, in recent years quite a few Hindu historians have come out in the open disputing those allegations. For example, historian Babu Nagendranath Banerjee rejected the accusation of forced conversion of Hindus by Muslim rulers by stating that if that was their intention then in India today there would not be nearly four times as many Hindus compared to Muslims, despite the fact that Muslims had ruled for nearly a thousand years. Banerjee challenged the Hindu hypothesis that Aurangzeb was anti-Hindu by reasoning that if the latter were truly guilty of such bigotry, how could he appoint a Hindu as his military commander-in-chief? Surely, he could have afforded to appoint a competent Muslim general in that position. Banerjee further stated: "No one should accuse Aurangzeb of being communal minded. In his administration, the state policy was formulated by Hindus. Two Hindus held the highest position in the State Treasury. Some prejudiced Muslims even questioned the merit of his decision to appoint non-Muslims to such high offices. The Emperor refuted that by stating that he had been following the dictates of the Shariah (Islamic Law) which demands appointing right persons in right positions." During Aurangzeb's long reign of fifty years, many Hindus, notably Jaswant Singh, Raja Rajrup, Kabir Singh, Arghanath Singh, Prem Dev Singh, Dilip Roy, and Rasik Lal Crory, held very high administrative positions. Two of the highest ranked generals in Aurangzeb's administration, Jaswant Singh and Jaya Singh, were Hindus. Other notable Hindu generals who commanded a garrison of two to five thousand soldiers were Raja Vim Singh of Udaypur, Indra Singh, Achalaji and Arjuji. One wonders if Aurangzeb was hostile to Hindus, why would he position all these Hindus to high positions of authority, especially in the military, who could have mutinied against him and removed him from his throne?

    Most Hindus like Akbar over Aurangzeb for his multi-ethnic court where Hindus were favored. Historian Shri Sharma states that while Emperor Akbar had fourteen Hindu Mansabdars (high officials) in his court, Aurangzeb actually had 148 Hindu high officials in his court. (Ref: Mughal Government) But this fact is somewhat less known.

    Some of the Hindu historians have accused Aurangzeb of demolishing Hindu Temples. How factual is this accusation against a man, who has been known to be a saintly man, a strict adherent of Islam? The Qur'an prohibits any Muslim to impose his will on a non-Muslim by stating that "There is no compulsion in religion." (surah al-Baqarah 2:256). The surah al-Kafirun clearly states: "To you is your religion and to me is mine." It would be totally unbecoming of a learned scholar of Islam of his caliber, as Aurangzeb was known to be, to do things that are contrary to the dictates of the Qur'an.

    Interestingly, the 1946 edition of the history textbook Etihash Parichaya (Introduction to History) used in Bengal for the 5th and 6th graders states: "If Aurangzeb had the intention of demolishing temples to make way for mosques, there would not have been a single temple standing ***** in India. On the contrary, Aurangzeb donated huge estates for use as Temple sites and support thereof in Benares, Kashmir and elsewhere. The official documentations for these land grants are still extant."

    A stone inscription in the historic Balaji or Vishnu Temple, located north of Chitrakut Balaghat, still shows that it was commissioned by the Emperor himself. The proof of Aurangzeb's land grant for famous Hindu religious sites in Kasi, Varanasi can easily be verified from the deed records extant at those sites. The same textbook reads: "During the fifty year reign of Aurangzeb, not a single Hindu was forced to embrace Islam. He did not interfere with any Hindu religious activities." (p. 138) Alexander Hamilton, a British historian, toured India towards the end of Aurangzeb's fifty year reign and observed that every one was free to serve and worship God in his own way.

    and

    Sati is a crime now, but it was the bane of Hindu society. Basically it meant burning the wife also on the funeral pyre along with her husband. It was a neferious practice and had existed for nearly 3000 years. The first man who put a stop to this practice was Aurangzeb in 1664. He at that time had issued a royal Firman banning this act. He equated this with murder. Unfortunately the deeds of Aurangzeb as a idol breaker is remembered more than this good deed.Aurangzeb was a pius Muslim and knew the Koran by heart. He employed many Hindus in his court. Orthodox Hindus were not happy with Aurangzeb's Firman against Sati and after his death the practice revived

    Mijhe toh koi problem nahi nazar aati, aur mere hisab se kisi ko problem honi bhi nahi chahiye, Mein yehi soch raha hoon ke problem kise ho rahi hai aur kuy ho rahi hai.

    SD ka post dekh kar hasi bhi aa rahi hai ki Aurangzeb ek villain hai, agar villain hota toh sadak uske naam se mashoor nahi hoti.

    Beside that Raja Ram was born 65 years after death of Aurangzeb.

    I have some doubts regarding forced conversion. If you'll read about Netaji Palkar, who was Commander in Chief of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. He was captured and tortured by Aurangzeb's army. Later, he was given the option to accept Islam or get killed. Fearing for his life, he accepted Islam. He was renamed as Muhammad Quli Khan by Aurangzeb himself. I'm not good with history. I'm saying this with reference to Wikipedia and a Marathi Televison series called as Raja Shivchhatrapati which I use to watch.
