The Life Of Tipu Sultan

To many, he is the Tiger of Mysore, the first freedom fighter, and a military genius. To many others, he was a torturous tyrant. He was born 270 years ago today, but still divides Karnataka politics.

    In 2018 on a trip to Mysore which was followed by the visit to Tippu's Summer Palace, traveling with history that I had studied, I was astonished to find some of the developments during his reign. The planning of the city, advanced warfare which is praised by several historians and economic development during his period which are not only milestones but also reminder to political pandits who never mention them in their speech. I find it ridiculous that there is any debate that we must be not taught about the history that is actually important for any country that still needs to work on infrastructure.

    The name tippu sultan is a blot in the name of history of karnataka.No one can deny his atrocities, cruelness,his hatred against non-muslims,his callous nature on local rulers such as palegaras.For people who say tippu as a "freedom fighter" ,"the tiger of Mysore" etc...to be termed as uneducated morons... He is not a military, administrative,expert ...infact his head was filled with hatred agaist non muslims(it can be evident from various sources not only from indian and foreign historians at that time,even from the syed kirmani-his personal assistant)... Even now parts of karnataka like coorg,and Malabar regions suffering from his bloody callous attacks...his name not worth to be remembered...,

    In his own mémoire it's written that he had forcefully converted people and was proud of it. If it's true he is just another glorified criminal.

    He surely is and will remain a hero. The rest is just typical delusional and hate filled hinduvta spree going on in today's india under a false secular title. Period

    I do not know too much about Indian's long and rich history, but as a Brit, this inbred hatred of the British Emire or Raj is mostly unfounded, we only arrived and established trade outposts, that was wholly our objectives, we never wished to colonised the country, but because the whole country was/is divided (warring factions, different kingdoms, and religions) the British outposts needed protection, and your willingness to accept militarily help to defeat your neighbours increased our power, but it certainly wasnt a conquest like many are taught, the proof of India's dividedness shows straight away when we left in 47, India broke apart, and you end up assassinating your greatest leader in Gandi, who, by the way, has a statue outside the Houses of Parliament in London
