Mysuru ruler Tipu Sultan is again trending on Twitter. However, this time around it has nothing to do with the birth anniversary celebrations or scrapping of history lessons on the erstwhile ruler albeit a ring that he supposedly wore at the time of his death.

It all started when a Twitter user questioned who is communal among Modi and Tipu while stating that the Muslim king wore a ring with the word ‘Ram’ inscribed on it but Modi refuses to wear a skull cap.
