    In another ever-so-common case of the liberal screaming Islamaphobia at anything that moves, a languishing daily newspaper called "The Independent" has decided that calling the Indian city of Mumbai by its original native name is racist, far-right and Islamaphobic. It has therefore decided to revert to using Mumbai's colonial name, "Bombay", in all it's articles.

    I'm surprised I couldn't find a thread on this on TSR! It's liberalism gone mad!
