On August 14, 1967, Islamabad had officially become the capital of Pakistan. Now, after 54 years, an online petition has sprung up to change the name of Pak’s capital from Islamabad to Islamagood. A person named Ayham Abrar started the petition on Change.org and it has already gathered over 400 signatures. Ayham, who claims to be a Bangladeshi, states in the petition, “Islam is good. Pakistan love Islam. Why IslamaBAD? Love from Bangladesh.”

Bangladeshi Man Started Petition To Change Name Of Pakistan’s Capital City To Islamagood

A Bangladeshi man named Ayham Abrar has started a petition to change the name of Pakistan’s capital from Islamabad to Islamagood. But Ayham, who termed Islamabad as IslamaBAD probably missed out on the proper fact check. The word ‘Islamabad’ actually means ‘City of Islam’. It has come from two words, Islam and Abad. Islam is the state religion of Pakistan and Abad means a ‘prosperous place’ in the Persian language. Wikipedia states that a school teacher from Arifwala had proposed the city name. Meanwhile, an Austrian village had changed its name from Fu*king to Fugging after years of joking.
