GOVERNMENT OF INDIA SHOULD BUY THIS HISTORIC RING
AND TAKE PRIDE IN INDIAN RULER’S SECULAR CREDENTIALS
This is indeed one of the best news I have read about Tippu Sultan, reaffirming his credentials as a secular ruler.
Range Gowda has done through research and has unearthed the documents
found in the Sringeri Mutt in Mangalore – where the Jagadguru of the
Mutt has praised Tippu Sultan for saving the temple from the Maratha
onslaught and restoring the temple. Tippu also rebuilt the Ranganatha
Swamy temple in Sri Rangapatna.
When I was around 8-10 years
old, my Dad corrected the tour guide at the temple for his divisive
language when we went on a tour of Mysore. It’s amazing, it’s almost
like hereditary, I do the same, and I have corrected the tour guides in
Israel, India, Australia and elsewhere.
He is one of the first
three rulers in the world who had recognized American independence and
had sent his greetings; the letter is in a French Library per Dr.
He is falsely accused of forcing conversions of
Christians and Hindus, he was not aware of it, his overzealous fanatic
generals did that, just as Amit Shah could muddle things with his thoughtless idiotic words do in the name of Modi and
Modi will get the bad rap for it.
This is one of the few brass
busts made on biennial century of Tippu’s death in 1999; one of them was
given to me as a gift, which I cherish. More at http://nabsites.net/demo/tippu-sultan-indias-brave-king-agains/
sincerely hope the Government of India buys it and displays it in its
Museum and take pride in our heritage of secular pluralistic leaders.
