What is this obsession of the leftists, secular, and liberals to term #TipuSultan as some kind of benevolent king? eh? He was nothing less than a fanatic Muslim whose main purpose was the convert the masses into Islam and his own biographer has mentioned it in his biography. In the book, History of Tipu Sultan, by Mohibbul Hasan he writes, “Tipu was bent on converting the entire population of Kerala, and specifically the Raja of Travancore, to Islam” Link to the pages :
He was a Hindophobic but he also wished to convert Christians into Islam and this is the proof of it. The screenshot below is from the ‘Select Letters of Tipu Sultan by William Kirkpatrick Link to this book: HistoryOfTipuSultanByMohibbulHasan_201512
After the battle of Kodagu(Coorg) in 1773, Haidar defeated the royal family of Coorg and this was it was mentioned in Nishane Haidari “Haidar seized many of the women of Kodagu and gave them to his own soldiers. (Tr. The History of the Reign of Tipu Sultan, page 75.) Archive.org.link
Link to this book! Read it for yourself! in 1784, When TIpu son of Haider attacker Coorg again he mentioned this: Where he clearly mentions, those who will resist him, will be converted! Following are the stats which show the number of people Tipu converted into Islam and these are mentioned in the books written by Islamic Writers themselves! I hope, liberals don’t term them as Sanghis now. Archive.org.link
Letters written by himself to various functionaries are the greatest proof that he was a fanatic! Here are a few letters he wrote to his military officials guiding them to convert the masses into Islam.
There is ‘n’ number of proofs which prove that he converted, looted many Hindus and Christians throughout his reign, and Tipu himself took pride in admitting that he is doing a great service of spreading ‘ISLAM’ in his memories, and letters.
But it is of great surprise to me that people who always talk about religious tolerance and these things never utter a single word against his fanaticism! Tipu wanted to make the southern part of this nation ‘Darul-Islam’ and that is the reason he was fighting against the British as well as Hindus ! he had no love for this nation but for his religion only! He never wished to accept this land as his motherland! So, he was not a freedom fighter as people suggest but was just another jihadi with a clear agenda of spreading Jihad and usual by the means of Violence! Thanks to Gajanan Bhaskar Mehendale for writing the book ‘Tipu as he really was’ and has made it available for free! here is the link: page link
