AURANGZEB ROAD, LUYTENS, NEW DELHI

 
 
It is unfortunate that a prominent road in New Delhi is named after Aurangzeb, the most ruthless and cruel among the many ruthless and cruel Muslim rulers. Greatest oppressor, mass-murderer and who introduced jyzia tax. What a paradox – There is no road named after the great Chatrapati who fought all his life nailing Aurangzeb and ultimately Marathas were successful in uniting this great country when they unfurled saffron flag in Atak
 
What are we as a nation doing about it? Majority citizens of this country have already made peace with history or are numb to the insults inflicted upon our nation.
 
Time has come to review and correct this aberration of having road named after Aurangzeb. Bharat Ratna Dr Abul Kalaam people’s President, great visionary, eminent scientist, Karmayogi and role model to Gen Next breathed his last giving a lecture at IIM, Shillong on 27th July 2015.
 
There would be many memorials built after the great man, but immediately let us rename Aurangzeb road by naming it after the great man, thereby erasing the memory of the tyrant Aurangzeb. This could be apt Shradhanjali to our nuclear man.
