Since the British rule through Mughal era till first 68 years of anti-Hindu and pro-islamic congress govt. The Indian history is concocted, malafide with illicit intention to paint barbarian mughal rulers as tolerant lots while the truth was they were terrorists and killers of millions of Hindus. It has been a concerted attempt to distort and falsify recorded Indian history, very often even by hiding dark periods of Indian history as glorious and progressive, to suit the selfish and perverted interests of the ruling clique. One of these attempts relates to the life and deeds of Tipu Sultan of Mysore. Most of his active life as Sultan of Mysore was spent in Kerala, waging wars of territorial annexation and Islamic conversions. Therefore, the true character of Tipu Sultan can be best judged from his activities in Kerala. The following is an earnest attempt to present Tipu Sultan as known from the available records of Kerala history.

Glorification of Mughal Terrorists By Traitor Historians
Indian culture has faced many enemies – both internal and external; but it has always survived. Of the single men who tried their best to destroy it, perhaps none can match the Tipu Sultan. But now, since we have these notions of political correctness and trying to prove “how much these muslim rulers have contrubuted to us”, he has been glorified as a national hero. But in reality, he was only a religious fanatic who believed in converting as many Hindus to Islam, and killing those who didn’t fall in line. Terrorist Tipu Sultan was glorified by leftist historians who were given authority to concoct Indian history by Congress leaders.
Living in Kerala, one does not have to read historical books to know about Tipu’s oppression. It was just a few generations back and Tipu’s cruelty is a part of the folk-lore. Temples relocated, idols (some of them even made of gold) buried (some of them recently recovered) and people resettled, in the wake of Tipu’s military campaign (‘padayottam’ as it is locally known).
Traitor Government Machinery Under Congress Rule Painted Traitor Tipu Sultan as Fighter
In 1989, the national broadcaster, Doordarshan, which was mouthpiece of christain and islamic propaganda under congress rule of 67 years, ran a serial on Tipu Sultan, ruler of Mysore from 1782 to 1799 A.D. Tipu Sultan was wrongly potrayed as a tolerant ruler, which is false and bogus considering the historical truth. In the name of communal harmony a terrorist Tipu Sultan was shown as a staunch freedom fighter against the British, while he fought to establish islamic empire.
In the words of Ravi Varma, one of the contributors to the anthology: “It was Tipu Sultan and his fanatic Muslim army who converted thousands of Hindus to Islam all along the invasion route and occupied areas in North Kerala, Coorg, Mangalore, and other parts of Karnataka. Besides over 8,000 Hindu temples were desecrated and/or destroyed by his Muslim army. Even today, one can see large concentrations of Muslims and ruins of hundreds of destroyed temples in North Kerala as standing evidence of the Islamic brutalities committed by Tipu Sultan … He was, all through, waging a cruel Islamic war against the Hindu population of Kerala, with a large Muslim army and ably assisted by the French with powerful field guns and European troops. In spite of all this, historical documents and records are being suppressed, distorted, and falsified in order to project this fanatic islamic terrorist Tipu Sultan of Mysore as a national hero like Chhatrapati Shivaji, Sambhaji Raje, Hemchandra, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Rana Pratap Singh, and Pazhassi Raja of Kerala. It is an insult to our national pride and also to the Hindus of Kerala by our so called ‘secular’ governments since last 68 years (from 1947) and the motivated Muslim and Marxist historians of Jawaharlal Nehru, Aligarh, and Islamia universities.”
Terrorist Tipu Sultan’s Letters – Proof of Atrocities on Hindus
So what do the original sources tell us about Tipu? Excerpts from Tipu’s letters as researched by the distinguished Kerala historian K. M. Panicker, which he reviewed in the Bhasha Poshini magazine, August 1923:
1. Letter dated March 22, 1788, to Abdul Kadir: “Over 12,000 Hindus were honoured with Islam. There were many Namboodri Brahmins among them. This achievement should be widely publicised among the Hindus. Then the local Hindus should be brought before you and converted to Islam. No Namboodri Brahmin should be spared. ”
2. Letter dated December 14, 1788, to his army chief in Calicut: ” I am sending two of my followers with Mir Hussain Ali. With their assistance, you should capture and kill all Hindus. Those below 20 may be kept in prison and 5000 from the rest should be killed from the tree-tops. These are my orders.”
3. Letter dated January 18, 1790, to Syed Abdul Dulai: ” …almost all Hindus (men and women) in Calicut are converted to Islam. I consider this as Jihad (terrorism).” [HB: During his life-span, which was curse to Kerala and her people, Terrorist Tipu Sultan was proud that he killed lakhs of harmless common Hindu citizens – which include mothers, children of farmers, workers and peasants of Kerala. He was pleased that he followed evil teachings of koran as he murdered for Jihad (terrorism) ordered by mohammed and allah. ]
[Also Read Love Jihadi Tipu Sultan and His Women ]
Tipu Sultan and his ancestors followed koranic teachings to kill innocent Hindus and spread islam.
Sura 9, Aayat 23: “हे इमां वालो अपने पिता व भाइयों को अपना मित्र न बनाओ ,यदि वे इमां कि अपेक्षा कुफ्र को पसंद करें ,और तुमसे जो मित्रता का नाता जोडेगा तो ऐसे ही लोग जालिम होंगे। ”
इस आयत में नव प्रवेशी मुसलमानों को साफ आदेश है कि,जब कोई व्यक्ति मुस्लमान बने तो वह अपने माता , पिता, भाई सभी से सम्बन्ध समाप्त कर ले। यही कारण है कि जो एक बार मुस्लमान बन जाता है, तब वह अपने परिवार के साथ साथ राष्ट्र से भी कट जाता है।
Sura 9, Aayat 23: “Hey faithful to allah, do not consider your father, brothers as your friends, if they are disbelievers and not faithful (to allah); they will keep friendship with you but they will be cruel and tyrant.
Here Koran teaches that whoever do not believe in allah or koran (fiction conceptualized by mohammed and his stooges), he will be cruel and tyrant; the prejudice and barbarian belief of hating non-believers of islam (non-muslims) shows how much hatred is taught to muslims since childhood by koran; such teachings get internalized in them making them terrorists of the future. This is just one verse, there are more than 164 verses of koran which provoke them to be Jihadi (terrorist).
In this Sura, the converted muslims are ordered a devout muslim should not trust or believe anyone not even his own father, brothers, he should ruin his relationships with them. This is the main reason that once a person becomes muslim he does not believe in his own family or nationality, never trusts non-muslims. It also highlights the fact that the converted muslims are more dangerous than actual muslims. Concept of Terrorism (Jihad) explored such views more, expanding it to materialize killings of innocent people by mughal invaders – Akbar the Barbarian, Aurangzeb the Tyrant and many such islamic terrorist rulers of India.
Tipu Sultan Became Terrorist, Barbarian and Tyrant following Evil Teachings
Some of the evil teachings of koran are shocking and very disturbing. Such verses made terrorist out of common invaders.
सुरा ९ ,आयत १२३ में लिखा है की,” हे इमां वालों ,उन काफिरों से लड़ो जो तुम्हारे आस पास है,और चाहिए कि वो तुममे शक्ति पायें।”
सुरा २ कि आयत १९३ …..”उनके विरूद्ध जब तक लड़ते रहो, जब तक मूर्ती पूजा समाप्त न हो जाए और अल्लाह का मजहब(इस्लाम) सब पर हावी न हो जाए. “
सूरा २६ आयत ९४ ……”तो वे गुमराह (बुत व बुतपरस्त) औन्धे मुँह दोजख (नरक) की आग में डाल दिए जायंगे.”
सूरा ९ ,आयत २८ …..”हे इमां वालों (मुसलमानों) मुशरिक (मूर्ती पूजक) नापाक है। “
गैर मुसलमानों को समाप्त करने के बाद उनकी संपत्ति ,उनकी औरतों ,उनके बच्चों का क्या किया जाए ? उसके बारे में कुरान ,मुसलमानों को उसे अल्लाह का उपहार समझ कर उसका भोग करना चाहिए।
सूरा ४८ ,आयत २० में कहा गया है ,…..”यह लूट अल्लाह ने दी है। “
सूरा ८, आयत ६९…..”उन अच्छी चीजो का जिन्हें तुमने युद्ध करके प्राप्त किया है,पूरा भोग करो। “
सूरा १४ ,आयत १३ …..”हम मूर्ती पूजकों को नष्ट कर देंगे और तुम्हे उनके मकानों और जमीनों पर रहने देंगे।”
From ‘A Voyage to the East Indies’ by Fra Barthoelomeo, a renowned Portuguese traveller and historian, who was present in Tipu’s war zone in early 1790:
“First a corps of 30,000 barbarians who butchered everybody on the way … followed by the field gun unit under the French commander, M. Lally. Tipu was riding on an elephant behind which another army of 30 000 soldiers followed. Most of the men and women were hanged in Calicut, first mothers were hanged with their children tied to necks of mothers. That barbarian Tipu Sultan tied the naked Christian and Hindus to the legs of elephants and made the elephants to move around till the bodies of the helpless victims were torn to pieces. Temples and churches were ordered to be burned down, desecrated, and destroyed. … Those Christians who refused to be honoured with Islam were ordered to be killed by hanging immediately. These atrocities were told to me by the victims of Tipu Sultan who escaped from the clutches of his army and reached Varapphuza, which is the centre of Carmichael Christian Mission. I myself helped many victims to cross the Varapphuza river by boats.”
The letter of January 19, 1790, sent to Budruz Zuman Khan by Tipu himself says: “Don”t you know I have achieved a great victory recently in Malabar and over four lakh Hindus were converted to Islam? I am determined to march against that cursed “Raman Nair” very soon (reference is to Rama Varma Raja of Travancore). Since I am overjoyed at the prospect of converting him and his subjects to Islam, I have happily abandoned the idea of going back to Srirangapatanam now”.
In the letter dated January 18, 1790, to Syed Abdul Dulai: “With the grace of muhammed and allah, almost all Hindus in Calicut are converted to Islam. Only a few are still not converted on the borders of Cochin State. I am determined to convert them also very soon. I consider this as Jehad to achieve that object.”
The above proofs clearly show the shallow and fake “secularism” of Tipu Sultan hidden by anti-India historians. Further, these historians tried to portray Tipu as a nationalist as he fought against British. But the renowned historian, Dr. I.M. Muthanna, says in his Tipu Sultan X-Rayed that Tipu was a traitor as he invited the French to invade India.
Eunuch Tipu Sultan Being True Muslim was Traitor and Invited French to Invade India
The letter, dated April 21, 1797, written by Tipu and classified in the Persian File of Records, reads: “”Since I manifested my friendship in writing to you, my messengers have arrived with the following intelligence which will not be displeasing to you….I inform these events in order to prove to you that it is now the moment for you to invade India. With little trouble we shall drive the British out of India. Rely on my friendship.” This shows the expansionist agenda of Tipu Sultan at the cost of decimating India into several states.
According to the official report of Col. Fullarton of the British forces stationed in Mangalore, “(During the siege 1783) Tipu’s soldiers daily exposed the heads of many innocent Brahmins within sight from the fort for Zamorin and his Hindu followers to see. It is asserted that the Zamorin rather than witness such enormities and to avoid further killing of innocent Brahmins, chose to abandon the Palghat Fort” Further he states- “It was not only against the Brahmins who were thus put in a state of terror of forcible circumcision and conversion; but against all sections of Hindus. In August, 1788, a Raja of the Kshatriya family of Parappanad and also Trichera Thiruppad, a chieftain of Nilamboor, and many other Hindu nobles who had been carried away earlier to Coimbatore by Tipu Sultan, were forcibly circumcised and forced to eat beef.” an anti-Vedic practice as Hindus consider Cow as Holy Mother for her selfless contribution to the world and humans.
Genocide of Hindus by Brutal Tipu Sultan
The world-famous Protuguese traveller, Fr. Barthoelomeo, writes in his book Voyage to East Indies : “Tipu was riding on an elephant behind which another army of 30,000 soldiers followed. Most of the men and women were hanged in Calicut, first mothers were hanged with their children tied to necks of mothers. That barbarian Tipu Sultan tied the naked Christians and Hindus to the legs of elephants and made the elephants to move around till the bodies of the helpless victims were torn to pieces. Temples and churches were ordered to be burned down, desecrated and destroyed. Christian and Hindu women were forced to marry (mlecchas) mohammadans and similarly their men (after converting Hindu men into Islam) were forced to marry mohammadan women. Those Hindus, Christians who refused to be honoured with Islam, were ordered to be killed by hanging immediately.”
The neutral point of views show that majorly Hindus were killed because more than 95% of the common citizens were Hindu population.
The cruelties which Tipu Sultan committed in Coorg, has no parallel in history. On one occasion, he forcibly converted over ten thousand Hindus to Muhammadanism. On another occasion, he captured and converted to Islam more than one thousand Hindu Coorgis before imprisoning them in the Sreerangapatanam fortress. The atrocities committed by Tipu Sultan in Bidnur in North Karnataka during and after its capture by him, were most barbarous and beyond description. After the capture of Mangalore, along with Hindus, thousands of Christians were also forcibly sent to Sreerangapatanam where all of them were circumcised and converted to Islam. Then he marched upto Kumbla on the northern borders of Kerala, forcibly converting to Islam every Hindu on the way.
Thousands of Hindu Temples Destroyed and Converted into Anti-Vedic Mosques by Cruel Tipu Sultan
Taliban destroyed one Bamiyan but Terrorist Tipu Sultan was more barbarous who demolished several Bamiyans and Hindu Temples
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 against Hindus in Malabar were worse and more barbarous than those committed against the Hindus in Hindustan by the notorious Mahmud of Ghazni, Alauddin Khalji, and Nadir Shah. According to the Malabar Manual of William Logan who was the District Collector for some time, Thrichambaram and Thalipparampu temples in Chirackal Taluqa, Thiruvangatu Temple (Brass Pagoda) in Tellicherry, and Ponmeri Temple near Badakara were all destroyed by Tipu Sultan. The Malabar Manual mentions that the Maniyoor mosque was once a Hindu temple. Vatakkankoor Raja Raja Varma writes- “There was no limit as to the loss the Hindu temples suffered due to the military operations of Tipu Sultan(in Kerala). Burning down the temples, destruction of the idols installed therein and also cutting the heads of cattle over the temple deities were the cruel entertainments of Tipu Sultan and his equally cruel army. It was heartrending even to imagine the destruction caused by Tipu Sultan in the famous ancient temples of Thalipparampu and Thrichambaram. The devastation caused by this new Ravana”s barbarous activities has not yet been fully rectified.”
Terrorist Tipu Captured Mysore Killing Thousands of Unarmed Hindus
About the atrocities in Kozhikode, L.B. Boury writes: “To show his ardent devotion and steadfast faith in muhammaddan religion (death cult, islam), Tipu Sultan found Kozhikode to be the most suitable place. Kozhikode was then a centre of Brahmins and had over 7000 Brahmin families living there. Over 2000 Brahmin families perished as a result of Tipu Sultans Islamic cruelties. He did not spare even women and children. Most of the men escaped to forests and foreign lands.” The propaganda that Tipu Sultan was tolerant and fair-minded towards the Hindus in Mysore is also without any foundation, as explained in “History of Mysore” written by Lewis Rice as well as M.M. Gopal Rao. According to Lewis Rice, during the rule of Tipu Sultan, only two Hindu temples inside the Sreerangapatanam Fort were having daily pujas while the assets of all other temples were confiscated. Gopal Rao says- “Muslims were exempted from all taxes. Even those who were converted to Islamic faith were also allowed the same concessions,”
The Mysore Gazetteer says that the ravaging army of Tipu Sultan had destroyed more than 8000 temples in South India. The temples of Malabar and Cochin principalities had to bear the brunt of plunder and destruction. According to the Malabar Gazetteer, the important temples in the towns of Tali, Srivaliyanatukavu, Tiruvannur, Varakkal, Puthur, Govindapuram, and Talikunnu were destroyed by Tipu”s ravaging armies.
Inspite of enormous evidences present as mentioned above which clearly show that, Tipu Sultan was no “secular” and “tolerant”, still this myth is being portrayed in academic circles. It is high time that, truth be laid down in public. It is high time to voice objection against whitewashing of history by vested interests. We, people of India should gather courage to call a spade a spade.
An opinion shared by Sanjith Menon, a renowned officer, who did hear about Tippu’s harassment from his ancestors. And mind it, you will find thousands of Hindus in Kerala who will tell you similar incidents told to them by their great grandfathers.
“My grandfather was born in Ottappalam, Kerala, in 1899. In those days it was called Valluvanad. I remember him telling me as a small child ie, in 1981, about the way Tippu had attacked, Valluvanad, a story told to him by his father. Men were caught and asked whether they need to shave their head, or let the sword cut off their necks. Upon shaving their heads they used to be sent to Ponnani, to don the cap and be a Muslim. My grandfather had no reason, to lie to me. This oral history can be checked with a lot of old people in that Area. I’m not saying that we need to hate Muslims for what Tippu did, of course not. But lets also not forget, that this land mother India, gave space and living to a large number of refugees from central Asia, Persia, Turkey and Arabia…But some of them forgot her benevolence and started talking about the Two nation theory. This should not happen again.”
Sri D. S. Kuttappa, Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s organising secretary for Kodagu district, who was protesting against #TippuJayanti celebrations was brutally attacked and hacked to death by a group of muslim miscreants on Tuesday morning (10-11-2015). But Karanataka police under orders of corrupt and anti-Hindu congress govt instead lathi charged and brutually thrashed protesting Hindus of VHP and RSS…. Is this karanataka or an islamist state where a terrorist mughal tyrant tippu is given importance more than native Indians, Hindus.
If you are devout Hindu then spread this post to millions of Hindus and create awareness about truth of terrorist Tippu Sultan. #TerroristTipuSultan should be trending in twitter and facebook. The sacrifice of devout Hindu D S Kuttapa should not go in vain… Hindus Get United. Become a force, next year either we shall not see congress govt at Karnataka or no #TerroristTipuSultan’s celebration.
References & Notes:
There is ample evidence, available in many authentic records of his military operations in Kerala, to show that Tipu Sultan of Mysore was a fanatic Muslim tyrant who was responsible for the destruction of hundreds of Hindu temples, large-scale forcible conversion of the Hindus, and perpetration of unimaginable brutalities on the Hindu population in Kerala. All the available records such as Malabar Manual of William Logan, Historical Sketches of Col. Wilks, Voyage to East Indies of Fra Bartolomaeo, histories of Kerala written by K.P. Padmanabha Menon and Sardar K.M. Panicker, historical research papers of Elamkulam Kunjan Pillai, official reports of the English Company, and the records of Chirackal, Zamorin and Palghat royal families besides those from Trichur, Guruvayoor, Thirunavaya and Perumanam temples, clearly and conclusively depict Tipu Sultan as the most intolerant cruel, and fanatic Muslim ruler in the South. His main object, like his father Hyder Ali Khan’s, was to subjugate the whole of Kerala and convert its Hindu population to Islamic faith by force. Tipu Sultan’s notorious jihâd – Islamic war-slogan – was SWORD (death) or CAP (Islamic honour, i.e. forcible conversion), a cruel option for a hapless Hindu population. For this, his most dependable and obedient accomplices were his equally cruel and treacherous co-religionists – the Mappilas (local Muslim converts) of North Malabar.
