Is Kejriwal unaware about the truth of Tipu Sultan?

Why has Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal chosen to put portrait of Tipu Sultan (The controversial figure- The Tyrant of Mysore) among 70 Indian heroes as freedom fighter at the Portrait Gallery in Delhi Assembly? Is he unaware of the black deeds of Tipu Sultan or does he wish to gain something like please a particular community by doing so?

Let me tell you how history describes Tipu Sultan as – A tyrannical king who was neither patriot nor secular. During his rule, he persecuted minorities (especially Hindu & Christians) particularly in Coorg, Calicut, Cochin, Malabar, Bednur and Mangalore.

Isn’t Kejriwal aware that Tipu Sultan himself had written to Burduz Zamaun Khan on 19 January 1790, “Don’t you know I have achieved a great victory recently in Malabar and over four lakh Hindus were converted to Islam“? Is Kejriwal so ignorant that he forgot history narration how during the siege of Mangalore, Tipu’s soldiers daily exposed the heads of many innocent Brahmins within sight from the fort for the Zamorin and his Hindu followers to see.

Let me also tell Kejriwal that famous Hindu Temples -Thalipparampu and Thrichambaram of Chirackal Taluqa, Ponmeri Temple of Badakara, and Thiruvangatu of Tellicherry were smashed by Tipu Sultan. Tipu Sultan declared his kingdom as Islamic State and implemented Sharia rule & calendar.

In Malabar, the main targets of Tipu Sultan’s atrocities were Hindus and Hindu temples. According to Lewis B. Boury, the atrocities committed by Tipu Sultan in Malabar were far more barbarous than those committed by the notorious Mahmud of Ghazni, Alauddin Khalji, and Nadir Shah. In fact, Tipu Sultan has been called “Aurangzeb of the South” but cunning politicians like Arvind Kejriwal continue painting him as a hero, patriot, and freedom fighter. All for a few votes, Kejriwal Ji?

He changed the names of historical cities & villages and gave them Islamic colours like Mangalore or Mangalapuri was changed to Jalalabad, Mysore to Nazarabad, Bepur to Sultanpatanam, Cannanore to Kusanabad, Gooty to Faiz-Hissar, Dharwar to Quarshed-Sawad, Dindigul to Khaliqabad, Ratnagiri to Mustafabad, Kozhikode to Islamabad, and Dindigul to Khaliqabad.

Putting his portrait as a freedom fighter in Delhi Vidhan Sabha gallery has badly hurt the sentiments of Indians. Kejriwal Ji, it is time to rectify history and pay tribute to real heroes like Baba Baghel Singh, Sardar Jassa Singh Ahluwalia and Sardar Jassa Singh Ramgarhia, Prithviraj Chauhan, Porus who fought against foreign invaders- Muhammad Gauri, Mughals, Nadir Shah, Ahmed Shah Abdali etc. Name of Bhai Randhir Singh should also be included as he was one of the leading freedom fighters against British.

Why I am demanding separate religious identity for Sikhs

Even when we all are one; for all legal purposes and to do away with confusion as well as discrimination; there is a need to amend Article 25 to give Sikhs a separate religious identity.

I have urged members  in Delhi Assembly to pass a resolution  to support demand of separate Sikh identity in the nation for which a minor constitutional amendment is required.
During my address in Vidhan Sabha, I reiterated that it needs to be recommended to Govt. of India to amend the article 25 clause (2) sub clause (b) read with explanation II of the Constitution of India in order to equate the Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs with Hindus as these are separate religions. The obvious object of Article 25 is to remove a patent cause of inequality. Article 25 is an article of faith in constitution, incorporated in recognition of the principle that the real test of true democracy is the ability of even an insignificant minority to find its identity under the country’s constitution. Under Article 25 clause 2 sub clause (b) read with explanation II, “the reference to HINDUS shall be construed as including a reference to persons professing the Sikh, Jains or Buddhist religion, and the reference to HINDU RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS shall be construed accordingly.

I feel that the inclusionary definition relating to Sikh, Jains and Buddhist religions as included in the Hindu religion, though recognizing the distinctiveness of these religions on the face of it, has led to unavoidable confusion about the independent identity of these religions, thus defeating the object of Article 25.

I have appealed to  all the Members of the House that it is must to pass this resolution  so that the discrimination done to Buddhist, Jain and Sikhs should be removed and the Parliament of India should duly amend the Article 25 of the constitution of India because welfare of the people is the ultimate goal of all laws and state action and above all the constitution.

This discrimination is on since decades and Sikhs and other minority communities were struggling to get justice on this issue. It is an appropriate time that when Delhi Assembly and other state assemblies pass such resolution to support the demand of these minorities.
I have appealed to the Speaker to adopt his resolution for passing in the assembly and gave notice for the same.
