No Mockery of Freedom Fighters

Readers Pulse

It is a matter of national shame that the government of Delhi has renamed the fish market at Ghazipur as Shaheed Ashfaqullah Khan Fish Market supposedly to honour the memory of this great son of India and famed Urdu poet. To set this right I have sent a letter to the Chief Minister of Delhi and requested her to rectify this faux pas. This matter not only relates to the Urdu-speaking populace, freedom fighters and concerned citizens but also transgresses the sanctity of the Indian nation which was formed from the blood and toil of such freedom fighters and martyrs as Shaheed Ashfaqullah Khan. My letter to the CM was written with the notion that if the Government of Delhi has run out of ideas to constructively and judiciously commemorate our martyrs, poets and intellectuals, it should at least refrain from making mockery of their sacrifices and dedication to the cause of the nation.
