Mangaluru: The DK District unit of the BJP protested in front of the DC office on Friday, against the state government’s decision to celebrate Tipu Jayanti, scheduled to be held on November 10. The protest was inaugurated by Brijesh Chowta, general secretary, BJP district committee.

Addressing the protesters Mr Chowta said, “Kumaraswamy government has decided to continue celebrating Tipu Jayanti which was started by Siddaramaiah government to woo a particular community. But that community itself has clarified that Tipu is not a true Muslim and they told government not to give importance to him,”

“By declaring to celebrate Tipu Jayanti, state government is indirectly giving a message that it is with the communal people, murderers and those who divide the society. BJP condemns the government’s move and despite it being a government programme, we are not supporting Tipu Jayanti. Our MLAs have already sent letters to the government. They have stated that they will not be participating in this particular event. We cannot accept Tipu, who is a communal leader, non- believer and autocratic ruler,” said Chowta.

Speaking on the occasion, Robert Rosario, member of Kraistara Rashtriya Okkuta said, “Tipu was a murderer and he never tolerated people from religions like Christians and Hindus. He killed more than sixty thousand Christians and destroyed several churches in South Canara. Hindus saved some churches during his rule. He tried to build his own empire. Forcefully he converted thousands of Christians to Islam. By celebrating his Jayanti, Kumaraswamy government is doing a big mistake. As continuation of this, tomorrow someone will come with a demand of Kasab Jayanthi or Veerappan Jayanthi. Some naxal minded communists will back them. So it is our demand to the government to withdraw Tipu Jayanti immediately.”
