Possible spurious name tag on a relation

Hi,
I have concerns over the name= given to a relation in India as the value is the same as the name of the user who added it. Could be an error or malicious.
How do I best reach out to the local mapping community for them to check or otherwise offer an opinion. The name has persisted through multiple subsequent changesets by other mappers, but still…

Can you link it? It sounds like an obvious case, but maybe user named themself after road name or similar

There is index on https://openstreetmap.community/ - entries are also listed in iD after edit

Thanks for the link to the communities.
The relation is https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/11319035/
I have trouble downloading the history - it’s currently on version 58! - but the name was changed somewhere in the 40’s. The user name (and hence relation name) is that of a religious organisation, I believe.

The best way to look at the tag history of large relations is to use one of the dedicated history viewers, e.g. here: OSM Deep History

I guess the correct tagging should be mostly identical to the one for the opposite direction:
