Varsity to be renamed

In keeping with the demands of Urdu, Arabic and Persian lovers, Uttar Pradesh government is considering renaming the Manyavar Sri Kanshi Ramji Urdu Arbi Farsi University after some eminent scholar.

Vice chancellor Anis Ansari has already suggested nine names after whom the university could be renamed though he has pointed out that the original name of UP Urdu Arbi Farsi University was the best option and most acceptable as it has an identity of its own, official sources said.

They said that ever since the previous Mayawati government had named the university after the BSP icon, there had been demands for renaming it after a luminary who had made contribution to these languages.

The names suggested by Ansari include that of Amir Khusro who has contributed in all the three languages, Hazrat Shah Waliullah, Khwaja Garib Nawaz Moinudin Chisti, Sant Kabir and Mirza Ghalib.
