    Karnataka CM Siddaramiah & his cabinet Minister have given nod to celebrate Tipu Sultan Jayanthi on the day of Deepavali, ironically Tipu massacred thousands of Hindus on the same day in Mysore province. Even today section of Hindus do not celebrate Diwali to mark a protest against Tipu.

    There are historians who state that Tippu Sultan was a religious persecutor of Hindus.[37][38] C. K. Kareem also notes that Tippu Sultan issued an edict for the destruction of Hindu temples in Kerala.[39] Hindu groups revileTipu Sultan as a bigot who massacred Hindus.[40] He was known to carry out forced conversions of Hindus and Christians.[41]

    Tipu got Runmust Khan, the Nawab of Kurool, to launch a surprise attack upon the Kodava Hindus (also called Coorgs or Coorgis) who were besieged by the invading Muslim army. 500 were killed and over 40,000 Kodavas fled to the woods and concealed themselves in the mountains.[42] Thousands of Kodava Hindus were seized along with the Raja and held captive at Seringapatam (Srirangapatna). They were also subjected to forcible conversions to Islam, death, and torture.[43][full citation needed]

    In Seringapatam, the young men who were forcibly circumcised were incorporated into the Ahmedy Corps, and they formed eight Risalas or regiments.[42] The actual number of Kodavas that were captured in the operation is unclear. The British administrator Mark Wilks gives it as 70,000, Historian Lewis Rice arrives at the figure of 85,000, while Mir Kirmani's score for the Coorg campaign is 80,000 men, women and child prisoners.[42] In a letter to Runmust Khan, Tipu himself stated:[44][full citation needed]

    We proceeded with the utmost speed, and, at once, made prisoners of 40,000 occasion-seeking and sedition-exciting Coorgis, who alarmed at the approach of our victorious army, had slunk into woods, and concealed themselves in lofty mountains, inaccessible even to birds. Then carrying them away from their native country (the native place of sedition) we raised them to the honour of Islam, and incorporated them into our Ahmedy corps.

    In 1788, Tipu ordered his governor in Calicut Sher Khan to begin the process of converting Hindus to Islam, and in July of that year, 200 Brahmins were forcibly converted and made to eat beef.[45] Mohibbul Hasan, Prof. Sheikh Ali, and other historians cast great doubt on the scale of the deportations and forced conversions in Coorg in particular, and Hasan says that the British versions of what happened were intended to malign Tipu Sultan, and to be used as propaganda against him.[citation needed] He argues that little reliance can be placed in Muslim accounts such as Kirmani's Nishan-e Haidari; in their anxiety to represent the Sultan as a champion of Islam, they had a tendency to exaggerate and distort the facts: Kirmani claims that 70,000 Coorgis were converted, when forty years later the entire population of Coorg was still less than that number. According to Ramchandra Rao Punganuri the true number of converts was about 500.[46]

    Tipu sent a letter on 19 January 1790 to the Governor of Bekal, Budruz Zuman Khan. It says:

    Don't you know I have achieved a great victory recently in Malabar and over four lakh Hindus were converted to Islam? I am determined to march against that cursed Raman Nair (Rajah of Travancore) very soon. Since I am overjoyed at the prospect of converting him and his subjects to Islam, I have happily abandoned the idea of going back to Srirangapatanam now.[47]

    The following is a translation of an inscription on the stone found at Seringapatam, which was situated in a conspicuous place in the fort:[48]

    Oh Almighty God! dispose the whole body of infidels! Scatter their tribe, cause their feet to stagger! Overthrow their councils, change their state, destroy their very root! Cause death to be near them, cut off from them the means of sustenance! Shorten their days! Be their bodies the constant object of their cares (i.e., infest them with diseases), deprive their eyes of sight, make black their faces (i.e., bring shame).

    He also corresponded with the Sringeri Shankaracharya – expressing grief and indignation at a raid by Maratha bandit horsemen (called Pindari), which killed many and plundered the monastery of its valuable possessions,[49] patronised the Melkote temple (which has gold and silver vessels with inscriptions indicating that they were presented under the Sultan), for which a Kannada decree was issued that the Shrivaishnava (Hindu sectary) invocatory verses there should be recited in the traditional form. Tipu Sultan also presented four silver cups to the Lakshmikanta Temple at Kalale[50] and probably presented the Ranganatha temple at Srirangapatana with seven silver cups and a silver camphor burner.[51] Some historians have argued that these acts happened after the Third Mysore war, where he had to negotiate on the terms of surrender. They claim that these acts were motivated by a political desire to get the support of his Hindu subjects.

    Historian Hayavadana C. Rao wrote about Tippu in his encyclopaedic work on the History of Mysore. He asserted that Tippu's "religious fanaticism and the excesses committed in the name of religion, both in Mysore and in the provinces, stand condemned for all time. His bigotry, indeed, was so great that it precluded all ideas of toleration". He further asserts that the acts of Tippu that were constructive towards Hindus were largely political and ostentatious rather than an indication of genuine tolerance.[52]

    Today Muslims celebrated Tipu Jayanti by stoning to death Madikeri District, VHP Secretary Sri Kuttappad. Sources tell that VHP Secretary was stoned to death by Popular Front of India who came from Kerala.

    Tipu Jayanthi on Diwali is a beautiful tribute to India's secularism. Good going Congress!!

    The popular image of Tipu sultan looks something like this:

    My point is that, is there is a chance that popular images of Tipu sultan have been "Rajputised" to give a favourable tone among the masses? To me the guy looks like a afghan/turk warlord.

    We Hindus deserve this treatment.
    After Bihar elections I am convinced we care more about caste than religion and as such we deserve the treatment we are getting from everyone in the world..

    Mysore Kodagu BJP MP Pratap Simha receives death threat from Popular front of India( on FB). But i see only Girish Karnad death threat in all front pages of leading news paper, Pratap is mentioned in some corner of the paper.

    Hate to say it but it seems the like entire Hindutva brigade only wants us entangled in smaller issues like Beef, Tipu Sultan etc when there is much bigger fish to fry that will help the Hindu cause in the long term. Actually, many "Hindu" issues aren't really that, they are just issues of delivering on good governance - e.g. removing Art 370, UCC (although i know it won't achieve much, its still needed), destroying Cong. eco system (open and shut case of Rahul Gandhi's UK citizenship, NDTV fraud, NH), Temple free of Govt control, repealing RTE. These are all secular issues and government could have delivered on it without looking "communal".

    I am upset because the massive mandate in 2014 has gone down the drain without accomplishing anything. Only FDI is apparently coming and inflation is sky high.

    All political parties in India just play this game of majoritarianism vs minorityism, caste politics without delivering on anything. Congress pioneered it, BJP is no better and AAP is just full of anti-nationals. Hopeless.

    Political parties adapt to voters' mood. Blame the voters, not the politicians. In Democracy we get a government we deserve.

    That's like saying, a toddler should starve because he can't feed himself yet.

    Part of raaj dharam is protecting prajya.
    Why does bahubali become king in movie? Exactly.

    End of day, you can influence mood through masculine, feminine or neutral forms of persuasion.

    Congress uses feminine mixed with the masculine of Islam. Bjp trying to neutral its way out, when it should be using Sardars at what they do best..

    Otherwise, Sardars will do what they do best...

    Karnataka BJP to Protest Against Killings of Party Workers, Tipu Jayanti
    New Delhi: Demanding a NIA probe into the killing of 17 of its party workers and several activists of different Hindu organisations in Karnataka, the state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday threatened to stage a massive protest against government apathy to nab the culprits and celebration of Tipu Sultan Jayanti in the state.

    BJP urged the state government to keep a tab on the activities of jihadi elements during celebration of Tipu Sultan Jayanti scheduled on Thursday as it believes some of anti-nationals allegedly killed its party workers.

    On the other hand, the state government deployed heavy police force to avoid any untoward incident. Meanwhile, leaves of all Karnataka State Reserve Police personnel have been cancelled for the week and the government has decided to deploy seven companies of central forces in sensitive areas across the state.

    Accusing the Congress-led Karnataka government of playing 'vote bank' politics, the party said its workers will stage a protest wearing black band at the event.

    This was conveyed to Home Minister Rajnath Singh by a delegation of Karnataka BJP leaders led by State President B S Yeddurappa and Union Minister Ananth Kumar.

    "Over 17 party workers and activists from various Hindu organisations have been killed in the last one year. Some were killed during the Tipu Sultan Jayanti held at Madikeri last year. It is repeating this year as well. We have requested the Home Minister to initiate NIA probe into the killings," Yeddurappa told reporters after the meeting.

    BJP worker Sunil Dongre from Bidar district is the 17th and latest murderous attack been perpetrated by jihadi forces in Karnataka. Besides, there have been six attempts to murder BJP and RSS activists, he said.

    The party is the of firm view that all these murders were perpetrated by workers belonging to Popular Front of India (PFI), Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD) and Socialist Democratic Party of India (SDPI), he alleged.

    In a representation made to the Home Minister, Yeddurappa claimed that the state government's move to organise Tipu Sultan Jayanti is "beginning of communalisation" in the state.

    Stating that violence had erupted during the same event held at Madikeri last year, he said: "But a year elapsed, no probe has come out with the truth, either about the presence of large number of Muslim at Madikeri having come from Kerala or about the motive behind all 17 murders and six attempts to murder."

    Seeking the central government's help to check activities of jihadi forces this time at the event, Yeddurappa said, "I have learnt from reliable sources that a very large number of Muslim youths in their mid-20s have entered Karnataka a few days back from Kerala and are stationed in different parts of the state ... Their conduct and behavior evokes suspicion."

    "These dubious elements need to be apprehended immediately before they carry out their sinister design and nefarious activities on November 10," he said.

    He also alleged that the Congress government has made all preparations to "engineer riots" during Tipu Jayanti and blame BJP and Sangh Pariwar.
