Bengaluru: 11000 police personnel to be deployed on Tipu Jayanti

The High Court on Tuesday refused to interfere in the Tipu Jayanti celebrations by the state government.While rejecting the interim prayer for a stay, a division bench of Acting Chief Justice H G Ramesh and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar refused to stay the celebrations in the state, especially in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Kodagu districts.

Recently, Union minister Anantkumar Hegde had stirred a hornet's nest after he requested the Karnataka government not to include his name in programme invitations for Tipu Jayanti celebrations.

Though many historians see Tipu Sultan, also known as the "Tiger of Mysore", as the first freedom fighter to take on the British, he is not widely admired in the Kodagu district of Karnataka.

Tipu Sultan is also viewed in a negative light in Kodagu district of the state where he is alleged to have persecuted the local Kodava population, as also the Roman Catholics of Mangaluru, on religious grounds and forced conversion to Islam. The government is converting Karnataka into a jail through this practice. The President was speaking at an event to mark the 60th anniversary of the state legislature building, the Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru.
