    The demand to change the name of Hyderabad to Ambedkar Nagar has been put forth by the Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) groups in Telangana. The demand is a tribute to Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution and a champion of the rights of the marginalized communities.

    The SC/ST groups have been demanding the renaming of Hyderabad for several years now. They believe that the city’s current name is a reminder of its colonial past and does not reflect the aspirations of the people who live there. They argue that changing the name to Ambedkar Nagar would be a fitting tribute to the man who fought tirelessly for the rights of the Dalits and other marginalized communities.

    Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was a visionary leader who played a pivotal role in shaping India’s constitution. He was born into a family of Dalit Mahar caste, which was considered to be one of the lowest castes in Hindu society at that time. Despite facing discrimination and hardship throughout his life, he went on to become a leading figure in India’s struggle for independence and a champion of social justice.

They argue that it would also help to raise awareness about the ongoing struggles of the Dalit community, which continues to face discrimination and marginalization in many parts of India.

    However, not everyone is in favor of the name change. Some argue that Hyderabad has a rich history and cultural heritage that should be preserved. They believe that changing the name would be disrespectful to the city’s past and would not address the underlying issues facing the Dalit community.

While there are concerns about the impact of the name change on the city’s history and culture, it is important to recognize the ongoing struggles of the Dalit community and to support efforts to promote their rights and interests.
