HC refuses stay on Tipu Jayanti”

The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday refused to grant a stay on the celebration of Tipu Jayanti. The court issued a notice to the government to raise objections in four weeks on the contention that the day must never be celebrated. The BJP planned to organise a meeting at Gandhi maidan in which former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa was to address a gathering on November 8.However, in wake of security arrangements for Tipu Jayanti, police department suggested BJP to organise their rally after November 10.

The government's decision to celebrate the day on November 10 previous year had drawn much criticism from the BJP and the RSS, who termed this act of the Congress as "minority appeasement".

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is the opposition party in the state, and some outfits have expressed their reservations for Tipu Jayanti celebrations, by calling him "religious bigot", "fanatic" and "anti-Kannada".

Amidst all the opposition for the state sponsored Tipu Jayanti, from the BJP and its affiliates the Udupi district administration has chose to impose section 144 across the district from 9.00 am on Nov 8 upto 9.00 am of Nov 11 as a precautionary step to avoid any law and order situation in the district. He made submissions pertaining to historical facts which contended that Tipu Sultan, a ruler of the erstwhile kingdom of Mysore, had killed thousands of Kodavas (in Kodagu district) during his rule.
