Renaming Dyal Singh College not proper
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
Dear Editor,

It refers to certainly a wrong move in governing body of Dyal Singh College (Delhi) renaming the evening branch as Vande Matram Mahavidyalaya. The move though apparently looking nationalist, yet is anti-national and in total contradiction with the transfer-deed signed between Dyal Singh Trust and University of Delhi. Such a wrong decision can even tend to provoke communities with even BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa rightly objecting to name-change. Enquiry is necessary in even mooting the proposal. Dyal Singh Majithia, a prominent banker (founder of Punjab National Bank) and founder of prominent English daily The Tribune was a known personality of pre-Independence united India, and must not be dishonoured in the manner governing body of Dyal Singh College did. It is beyond understanding how self-alleged tolerant pseudo-secularists notorious for drama of award-return are silent on the move.

Even Pakistan could not change name of Dyal Singh College in Lahore after partition. Renaming can and must not be equated to renaming Aurangzeb Road (New Delhi) where Aurangzeb was known to be a cruel Mughal emperor in the history. Renaming however is required on large scale of the institutions all over the country named highly disproportionately after family-members of Nehru-Gandhi family.
