Udupi, Nov 6: Sri Rajashekarananda Swamiji of Gurpur Vajradehi Math on Friday November 6 warned the Congress-led state government that if it goes ahead with the celebration of Tipu Jayanti on November 10 as planned, a protest would be held and the same day would instead be observed as 'government suicide day'.

He was addressing a protest organized by Karnataka Gaurava Samrakshana Samiti against the state government's plan to celebrate Tipu Sultan's birth anniversary on November 10. The protest near clock tower here.

"If the state government goes ahead with its plan, we will observe the same day as 'government suicide day', and if ministers participate in the Tipu Jayanti programme, we will boycott all their other programmes," the Swamiji said.

"Tipu Sultan was against other religious and against humanity. He converted one lac Christians and tried to turn Mysuru into an Islamic state. Celebrating his birthday is not correct, it will send out the wrong message.

"Usually birth anniversaries of great people are celebrated to create awareness about their achievements but celebrating Tipu Jayanti will send out the wrong signal. Former union minister Rahman towards the end of the UPA government's term had proposed to establish Tipu university which would have influenced students in the wrong way. Where is Rahman Khan now?" he said.

Addressing the protest, Robert Rosario from Mangaluru said, "Nearly 80,000 Christians were captured during Tipu Sultan's reign between 1784 and 1799, and among them, only 20,000 got out alive and rest 60,000 were either butchered or converted. If he ruled for another five years, the entire Christian community in the region would have vanished.

"Birth anniversary of any important personality is celebrated to send across a good message but now this government is celebrating the birthday of a person who left a history of bloodshed. The money of six crore tax payers should not be used for this reason. Tipu Jayanti is being celebrated for nothing but political gain," he said.

"The church attack in Mangaluru in 2008 was hyped by the English media. The real attack on churches was when Tipu Sultan plundered them. In 2008, only some stones were thrown at a church but it was blown out of proportion by the media," he claimed.

"In the coming days, the government may celebrate even the birthdays of Osama Bin Laden and Ajmal Kasab. Tipu was against Kannada. Thousands of people died during his reign, but now just for vote bank the government is celebrating his birth anniversary. He converted one lac Christians. we will not allow the government to celebrate the birthday of such a communal man," he asserted.

Dinesh Ganiga, presidnet of Gaurava Samrakshana Samiti, various Christian leaders, members of Bhajan Mandira, Yuvaka Mandala, Yuvati Mandala, and others were present. A memorandum is expected to be submitted to the governor urging ban on the celebration of Tipu Jayanti.

    Stop birthdays all so called great people. In the eyes of good one person as good as the other. Do not try to hero worship any one.If you keep on celebration birthdays even 365 days of year is not sufficient. Therefore stop doing such celebrations at the expenses tax payers hard earned money. At the same time vilifying and demeaning great personality like Tippu sulthan is not acceptable. Regarding alleged atrocities committed by him against Christians and conversion of Hindu it is difficult ascribe to this theory that he is communal . Pls not that his chief advisor was a Brahmin, Temple Srirangapatnam is near his capital he he given lots of grants to it, He has protected and donated shriringeri sharadha PEETA when it is attacked by Hindu King Marathas. Prosecuting Christians could have been an administrative decision at that time though if happened is condemnable. Please note that all other so called kings before independence inherited their properties to their kiths and kins like scindias of Gwalior Mahrajas of Mysore and so on. Where is the property of tippu sulthan where are his progeny ? In that count he is a great freedom fighter never amassed wealth for himself but for his subjects. Even the great President APJ who has been accepted by everyone in this country considers Tippu sultahan as freedom fighter and he had scientific temper reasonableness in administration. At the same time I respect my Christian brothers especially various missionaries in uplifting education level of masses in Dakshina Kannada. This difference opinion between Christians and Hindus and Muslims Should be sorted out and proper debate should take place to live peacefully in coastal district

    Now, govt. is celebrating birthdays on communal basis. Holidays for Kanaka and Valmiki, but no holidays for Krishna and Rama.

    No more birthday celebrations please. Even the existing birthdays should be scrapped.

    Godse never wanted his birthday to be celebrated. In fact he took the decision knowing fully well that he would be condemned by both the govt. and the people.

    Gandhi forced the govt. to pay Rs.75 crore to enemy country Pakistan by resorting to fasting. Fasting was Gandhi's weapon.

    Godse was against forcing the govt. by single person to favour the enemy country.

    Later India could fight the enemy countries as there was no one to put pressure on the govt.

    if you see the history Tippu is portrayed more as a communal leader.. his only achievement for the country was he fought against the Britishers.. But rest he carried out bloodshed every where.. he forcefully converted Christians in Canara region or else oif they refused then killed them during their captivity to Shrirangapatna...
    Same things he did with the hindus of Coorg or in Kerala too...
    So it is better not to celebrate this Tippu Jayanti with so much hype Instead celebrate Akbars birthday even he too was muslim but a very good ruler he respected everyone equally..
