BENGALURU: The Congress government’s move to celebrate  ‘Tipu Jayanti’ on the occasion of  the birth anniversary of the 18th century legendary king Tipu Sultan has made BJP deeply frustrated . BJP has  alleged  that it was an attempt by the ruling party to strengthen its vote bank.

On December 22, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah announced that the government has decided to celebrate “Tipu Jayanti” and the date would be decided shortly reported PTI.

“There has been a lot of pressure from various quarters to celebrate Tipu Jayanti. We have decided to take this into consideration and will announce the date shortly,” Siddaramaiah had said at the release of a book “Tipu Sultan: A Crusader for Change” by historian Prof B Sheik Ali.

But this has not gone down well with the BJP, with its senior leaders claiming that Tipu was a “tyrant” who committed forced conversions in Kodagu and Dakshina Kannada districts in Karnataka and the neighbouring Kerala.

BJP leader Suresh Kumar said Tipu cannot be considered as a person whose birthday should be celebrated by the government, claiming that the erstwhile Mysuru ruler had committed barbaric acts against people including Kodavas (in Kodagu district).

“We (BJP) have our own viewpoint on Tipu Sultan about his administration, especially when you go to Coorg (Kodagu) and other places where people still remember the barbaric acts committed against Coorgis, who refused to oblige his dictates. So, Tipu cannot be considered as a person whose birthday should be celebrated by the state government,” he claimed.

Tipu was a ruler of the erstwhile kingdom of Mysore, who was considered an implacable enemy of the British East India Company. He was killed in May 1799 while defending his fort of Srirangapatna against the British forces.

  1. Tipu a la first page of Google search, in response to unfair treatment he is being meted out by the same people who made Godse a “patriot” because he killed late Gandhiji. First, my take: Web Results of just the first page for the subject (Tipu), as of 12/27/14, on Google were as follows, which corroborate my personal assessment, because I visited, in person, the area covered below. History is not my forte Still, no other king, Hindu or Muslim, achieved the following unique honor:
    Died on the battlefield defending his country from the Britishers (East India Company). Proudly , declared, “one day’s of free life is better than thousand years of slavery/subjugation/being under some foreigner.’
    Built mandir and masjid, side-by-side, what is BJP doing?
    Had Nizam of Hyderabad been 1/10 as patriotic as TS, and not sided with EIC/British Army, India of today, especially its non-Hindi belt, would have looked much different. Now readers scan below, decide whom to curse TS

  2. Why I have been “honestly critical” the way he has been behaving is described below, which I did after his US visit with Obama ++, both of them would go in history as a “brilliant campaigner”,both before a,nd taking after the office. Unfortunately, both possessed “rhetoric”, over promised, and Mr. Modi forgot that he had support of less than 1/3 of the nation, whom he can’t motivate tog He has to practice it, too.
    gest demo contribute with the “dictatorial” style he wants to camouflage under “the biggest democracy” PR propaganda. If you disagree, read below:

  3. There were some typos for which I regret and apologize to my erudite readers. Below is my revised version:
    Web Results of just the first page for the subject (Tipu), as of 12/27/14, on Google were as follows, which corroborate my personal assessment, because I visited, in person, the area covered below. History is not my forte Still, no other king, Hindu or Muslim, achieved the following unique honor @ the age of 49, < a decade after the Quranic maturity (40).
    Tipu died on the battlefield defending his homeland from the Britishers (East India Company). Proudly declared, "one day's of free life is better than thousand years of slavery/subjugation/being under some foreigner.
    Built mandir and masjid, side-by-side, what is BJP doing?
    Had Nizam of Hyderabad been 1/10 as patriotic as TS, and not sided with EIC/British Army,India of today, especially its non-Hindi belt of the Dravidian South , would have looked much different.
    With these facts from his illustrious life of a minority-led area inhabitated with majority Hindu population then and now readers scan below, and decide whom to curse TS of BJP? The Nizam of Hyderabad was playing a very similar role as the Owaisi brothers of today. Non-Hyderabadi Muslims of other areas should be aware of these parochially-charged, "foxy" leaders among them. What is BJP's plan for "crippling" others. I may give my take if any objector comes up with any non-Hyderabadi
    (old) area/Muslim served by these "orators", who have yet not surpassed Syed Shahabuddin, a former MP and my physics teacher briefly,in 1957
