Prayagraj. Many times people do such a thing in order to please that the work gets worse. The Higher Education Service Commission had also done something similar in the past, after which it had to face constant criticism. The result was that the commission had to admit its mistake and rectify it.
In fact, when the name of Allahabad was changed to Prayagraj, the Higher Education Commission blindly started obeying this order of the government. The limit came when the commission changed the name of ‘Akbar Allahabadi’ to ‘Akbar Prayagraji’ on its official site. Apart from this, the names of poets like ‘Tegh Allahabadi’ and ‘Rashid Allahabadi’ were also changed.
In order to change the title next to the name of the poets, the commission had changed the column ‘About Allahabad’ to ‘Prayagraji’. Seeing this feat of the commission, everyone started criticizing it. Everyone said that playing with the names of famous personalities like this is not right. Seeing the matter taking hold, now the commission has come on the back foot and the commission has rectified its mistake.
The Higher Education Service Commission has given the About Prayagraj sub-column in the ‘About Us’ column of its official website uphesc.org. On clicking it, a page opens, in which it is written about Prayagraj. On clicking on it, a page opens, in which the history of Prayagraj has been written. In History where the history of Hindi literature has been written. In it ‘Akbar Allahabadi’ was written as ‘Akbar Prayagraji’. Apart from this, Teg Allahabadi was written as ‘Teg Prayagraji’ and ‘Rashid Allahabadi’ was written as Rashid Prayagraji.
It is believed that the Higher Education Service Commission had done this act to please the government. People said that Akbar Allahabadi is his identity and he will be known only by the name of Akbar Allahabadi. Even though later the name of Allahabad was changed to Prayagraj. In such a situation, tampering with the name of such a great poet is wrong and condemnable. Along with Prayagraj, the people of the whole world know Akbar by the name of Akbar Allahabadi.
At the same time, after catching up with the matter, the Higher Education Service Commission has rectified the mistake made on its website, but no officer of the commission is ready to speak anything in this matter. Although according to sources, some officials of the commission are also saying that their website was hacked, but no official of the commission is also confirming this. When the News18 team reached in front of the commission’s office, the lock was found hanging there too.
