History change makes Karnataka people protest as Tipu Sultan targeted by BJP
India is always the country to play with history and they want to change the history time and again they did so. At present for yet another change in history books of schools the govt eliminated Tipu Sultan’s fight against British.
Tipu Sultan also known as Tipu Sahab or the Tiger of Mysore. The Tiger Tipu Sultan is in history books of India to make children get inspired of his achievements but BJP wants to erase that. However, he will be remembered as the ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore and a pioneer of rocket artillery via Internet. Tipu Sultan had introduced a number of administrative innovations during his rule, which’s already there in Wikipedia. It will not be denied. He did wonders as he also developed a new coinage system and calendar, and a new land revenue system. This was to initiate the growth of the Mysore silk industry.
He expanded the iron-cased Mysore rockets and commissioned the military manual Fathul Mujahiddin. He deployed the rockets against advances of British forces and fought against the British.
Then the British offered him to have a 50-50 share of power and appealed him to surrender. But, he rejected the lucrative offer from the British. He had said to the British that “One day’s life of a tiger is better than 100 years of life a fox can live”. Now BJP is thinking negatively and doing whatever they like. The BJP also changed the name of Tipu Sultan road in Delhi to Abul Kalam road. Thus, these are the matters of jealousy that BJP implies on changing even the history of India.
Finally, it’s good to know that people in Karnataka are protesting currently against the change BJP applied.
