Well, there are some who want it to be changed to Bhagyanagar as an ode to the love story of Quli Qutub Shah and Bhagmati. At the same time, there are many who want to retain the name of Hyderabad.

According to his argument, Hyderabad was the name used for the city of pearls through centuries and during the rule of Qutb Shahi, Mughal, and Asif Jahi dynasties. His arguments are based on the book titled History of Medieval Deccan (1295-1724) under the authority of the erstwhile government of Andhra Pradesh in 1973. He further pushes the stance that Bhagmati was nowhere mentioned in history books. He maintains that there is no proof showing Bhagmati was Quli Qutb Shah's favorite queen who was conferred with the title of Hyder Mahal.


Well, and so the argument continues...
