Senior journalist Bhushan Deshmukh has expressed his opinion regarding the change of name. He has said, “Like Aurangabad, some people have demanded to change the name of Ahmednagar city. It is far from expressing our gratitude to the founder of the city where we live, grew up, but some communities have demanded to change the name of the city built by him with great effort. Actually Ahmednagar It was suggested that the name should be given by others, not by the king who built the city. The king himself did not place a simple inscription of his name anywhere. It was not difficult for the king to engrave his name on the entrance, towers, at least on his palace, which was included among the important forts of the world. But he didn’t do it”.
“Malik Ahmad Nizamshah was in possession of most of Maharashtra at that time. There were many forts like Shivneri, Daulatabad, but he considered this city as his own. He shifted the power of governance from Bhuikot here. For his eternal rest, he made a garden by the Sina river and fixed the place of his grave. After he left, at least the next He did not ask any of his ministers, Sardars (or MPs) to engrave his name on the grave so that generations would know his name. Although he did not write it down, historians from all over the world have mentioned the Nizamshah with glory. Those who do not know about the achievements of the king who built Ahmednagar city of Todi, they say to change the name of this city, there is no other frown like this”, he also said.
Speaking further, he said, “This king did not come from any foreign country. He was from the Marathi soil of Maharashtra, even those who play horses in politics should not know. In the name ‘Ahmednagar’, the Muslim and Hindu culture has been combined. Even in the court of the king, people of all castes and religions, from all provinces And the people of the countries used to be glorified. The only condition should be his achievements”.
“The one who stops the rain water falling on the mountain and supplies water to his raiyat for 24 hours with the Khapri tap, builds the park, fountain and Khapri tap, builds the water palace, encourages the weavers to start the handloom business here, along with winning the war with guerilla poetry, devises tactics to increase the morale of those left behind in the fight, along with preserving the aesthetic vision. Everyone living here should feel happy and proud that this city benefited from the founder who promoted education. Keep one day of the year reserved for this city and understand its greatness, so that you will understand how lucky we are to be residents of this place”, said Bhushan Deshmukh.
