Famous historian Irfan Habib has commented on the drill change in BJP's governments in different states. Habib has said that the party should first change the name of its national president Amit Shah. He has argued behind this, "His nickname 'Shah' is of Persian origin. This is not a Gujarati word.
According to one news, Professor of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has published the report after talks with 87-year-old Irfan Habib. According to the report, Professor Habib said, "Even the word of Gujarat is derived from the Persian word language. First it was called 'Gurjaratra'. They should also change this. "
Professor Habib alleged, "The campaign to change the name of the BJP is based on the RSS's Hindutva policy. This is exactly like the neighboring country of Pakistan. Where anything is not Islamic, it is removed. The BJP and the right wing want to change those things, which are non-Hindus and especially of Islamic origin.
By the way, let us say that many linguists believe that the word Shah is the original Persian, which means the king. Shah is nicknamed by most Syed Muslims in India. But the word Shah also comes from the Sanskrit language word sadhu, which means a good person. In India, the Shah nickname is used mostly by business communities such as the Vaishya community. Apart from this, Shah / Sahay nickname Jain and Vaishnav also in Gujarat, Rajasthan and UP. Shah's nickname also uses the Jain community of Delhi, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Some linguists believe that the word origin of the word comes from the moneylender. The meaning of moneylender means money transaction.
