Mangaluru: Those Opposing Tipu Jayanti Are Not Patriots – Indian Union Muslim League

Mangaluru: The Indian Union Muslim League staged a protest against those objecting the celebration of Tipu Jayanti, in front of the DC’s Office here, on November 9.

Addressing the protesters, president of the DK District Muslim League Ahmed Jamal said that Tipu Sultan was a patriot and he was a freedom fighter. “The state government has decided to celebrate the birth anniversary of Tipu Sultan but many people are highlighting him in bad light. We accept that some of the Christians in Canara were tortured by Tipu because of their involvement in supporting the British. Tipu was not against the Christians or the Hindus. When Sringeri Math, which was established by Shankaracharya, was invaded by the Maratha army, Tipu provided financial support for the re-installation of the holy idol. We welcome the decision of the state government in celebrating Tipu Jayanti.” He demanded the government to take action against those who obstruct the celebration of Tipu Jayanti.

Addressing the protesters, vice president of the DK District Muslim League Ismail said that those who are against celebrating Tipu Jayanti are not patriots. “They do not have respect towards patriots who sacrificed their lives for the country. The government should take measures to build a university in Tipu’s name since it had assured to build a university in Tipu’s name before the elections. The government should fulfill the assurances. U B Mallya, who brought Tipu’s sword back from a foreign country, should also be felicitated.”

He further said that Tipu was not against Hindus. Infact, he supported the temples in various places. He has given land to Christians. He did not discriminate between anyone. Tipu had doubts that weapons were hidden in the churches so he had taken Christian missionaries as prisoners.” He also said that the history on Tipu’s patriotism should be included in school history books. “Family members of Tipu are living in poverty in Kolkata. They should be given all the state respect and all facilities should be provided to them,” he added.

Prof Khalid addressing the protesters said, “We, the Indian Muslims, are regarded as the topmost Muslims in the world because we have given Tipu Sultan and APJ Abdul Kalam to the country. Our religion is a great religion, and we respect Hinduism and Christianity too. Tipu Sultan was known for his self-respect and patriotism. The decision of the state government to celebrate Tipu Jayanti is a right decision, welcomed by the Muslim league. We celebrate Valmiki Jayanti, Bhagat Singh Jayanti, Gandhi Jayanti, etc. Tipu was a great leader, so we need to celebrate Tipu’s birth anniversary.”

Later, a memorandum was submitted to the DC. Basheer Ullal, Hassan, Sherif Jokatte, M K Ashraf, Mohammed and others were also present.

  1. “We accept that some of the Christians in Canara were tortured by Tipu because of their involvement in supporting the British” – Report quoting some unknown political entity addressing a group of 10 people.

    “Some” of the christians? As per historical accounts, it runs into thousands and thousands!! Read James Scurry’s memoir. He was held captive by these wonderful appa-maga (hyder aali – tipu) regime for almost 10 years before he managed to escape. He does talk about what Hindus and Christians suffered under Sultan who desperately wanted to be seen as a powerful ‘muslim’ king in the eyes of other Islamic rulers. In fact, all of his court dealings were done in elite Persian language even though people (including appa-maga) could speak and understand only Hindustani!!! He recruited only Muslim folks to all the top, powerful positions. You can see plenty of proof for this in all the communications seized by British and later translated by researchers to English.

    As I wrote yesterday, communal Congress always takes advantage of one group to worship another group!!! What does Roy, Manga, joker Praveena Pinto and AS Beef Mathew have to say about Tipu Jayanti? I’m sure they fully support this idea!! smiles…

      Btw, your q should have read -“what DO Roy, Manga…..”. However, let us brush that aside – your Dhogla RSS chaddi – as usual, as I’m aware that you are STILL struggling with elementary English! As far as I can recall, your GREAT Yumreeki Bush had

      What ‘Jayanti’? Don’t we have more than enough ‘Jayanthi’s’ in India? Just ask that Rampi (Srooge Irani) NOT to declare Xmas day as some XXX…YYY jayanthi day this year. That will do for a start. 🙂

      And Poor Podi’ji…. from Tussnami to Tusssssss Pataki….right in time for Diwali.

      Happy Deepawali ya Rampu’ji. 🙂

    • RSS Pai, original duplicate, says, “As I wrote yesterday, communal Congress always takes advantage of one group to worship another group!!!”

      RSS did it not only between groups, but also individuals, gods and religions. Examples:

      Hindus vs Non-Hindus.
      Gandhi vs Subhaschandra Bose.
      Nehru vs Sardar Patel.
      Indira vs Lal Bahadur Shastri. ETC.

      THEY ALWAYS CREATE “ANTI GOD AGAINST EVERY GOD”, SO TO SAY.

      LATEST IN KARNATAKA: THE RSS MADE GOD OUT OF A PERSON, WHO WAS CLAIMED TO BE ELIMINATED BY THE CONGRESS GOVERNMENT OF SIDDARAMAYYAA, WHO IS FOUND TO BE A PERSON WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE FOR HIS LOVE TO A MARRIED WOMAN AND HAD INDULGED IN ILLEGALLY SETTING UP A COMPANY OWNING HUGE AGRICULTURAL LAND.

      THIS IS THE FINDING OF THE CBI OF MODI AND NOT OF SIDDARAMAYYA’S POLICE!

      PEOPLE WHO CLAMBERED FOR CBI INVESTIGATIONS LOOK THE OTHER WAY NOW, AS IF NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.

  2. Dear readers,

    This is the reason BJP wanted ‘Saffronisation of education system’. The Karnataka outgoing BJP State government initiate this project “indoctrinating young minds by “Hinduising” textbooks along the lines of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideology.

    K’taka saffronising school texts: Panel
    http://archive.indianexpress.com/news/k-taka-saffronising-school-texts-panel/1060307/

    Pointing out specific instances from the class V social science textbook, the committee has said that there is a clear anti-minority bias in content depicting Muslim kings as persecuting Hindu subjects and Hindu kings only fighting Muslim kings. An instance from the class VIII Hindi textbook refers to a lesson on ‘Punyakoti’ where a tiger takes an oath saying that “consumption of cow’s meat is a bad thought; henceforth, I will not eat cow’s meat”, whereas the original Kannada version mentions no such oath.

    Now the HRD ministry is governed by fake certificate holder in Modi’s ‘Good governance’ even this year shows Dec 25 as both “Christmas Day” and “Good Governance Day”.

    CBSE again lists December 25 as ‘Good Governance Day’
    http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/cbse-again-lists-december-25-as-good-governance-day/#sthash.IhBPLW8y.dpuf

    Now we should ask former RSS leaned Karnataka Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri lesson on ‘Punyakoti’ where a tiger takes an oath saying that “consumption of cow’s meat is a bad thought; henceforth, I will not eat cow’s meat”;the why in Modi’s India ‘Go matta’ is still sacrificed for exports when tiger is ready to go hunger?

    Jai HInd
