Quli Qutub Shah, the fifth sultan of the Qutub Shahi dynasty, established a new city that he titled Hyderabad.
Hyderabad: A virtual movement for renaming the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad after Quli Qutub Shah, the originator of Hyderabad, has been in progress by city resident Mohammed Abubakr on Facebook. “We must honor Quli Qutub Shah for establishing this city. In this regard we are starting the campaign to rename Hyderabad Airport as Quli Qutub Shah International Air-port,” Mr. Abubakr whispered.
The online request addressed to Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Union civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju speaks that in 1591, Quli Qutub Shah, the fifth sultan of the Qutub Shahi rule, founded a new city that he entitled Hyderabad, on the banks of the River Musi. Since its basis, the city of Hyderabad has thrived economically and ethnically.
Scores of publics who supported the appeal pointed out when asked, that the minute Delhi has the Indira Gandhi and Safdarjung airports, Mumbai has Chhatrapati Shivaji airport and Udaipur Maharana Pratap airport, why can’t Hyderabad’s airport be named after its organizer.

Mr. Jayesh Ranjan, an in-charge personal assistant to industries and investments section of Telangana, said that they have not expected representation from any one over name again the Hyderabad airport. According to the appeal, “It is extremely unfortunate that Quli Qutub Shah doesn’t get the due credit for his dream and effort in laying the foundation of this city. No monument or way in Hyderabad post-Indian Independence has been called after Quli Qutub Shah.’
It sustained: “The city is a fascinating example of assimilation of numerous cultures. As per the 2016 Review released by Mercer (a global human resources turn to firm), Hyderabad is the greatest city to live in India. Today, the city of Hyderabad is an outstanding sample of cultural diversity, progress, and unity of India.”
