Sword of Tipu Sultan

Secularism, though a noble concept theoretically, has some great pitfalls. Because when implemented in practice, especially in a population that has trained itself for centuries to live and think like a slave, it makes certain ‘mythological’ assumptions. I call it ‘mythological’ because secularism – imposed by the crooks and for the timid – turns history into mythology and mythology into history.

Thus legends like Ram and Krishna who have inspired generations after generations become ‘mythology’. And the entire series of crooks and terrorists – from Muhammad Bin Qasim, Khiljis, Lodhis, Babur, Akbar, Jahangir, Shahjahan, Aurangzeb to Bahadur Shah Zafar – are portrayed as historical ‘heroes’. This happens because when secularism is applied in history as well, to appease minorities in sync with vote-bank politics, it assumes that if certain representatives of a minority community are aggressive, then historically that community should have produced greatest proportion of saintly figures. And if majority community seems to be docile today, then it means that their noble forefathers actually did not exist!

Now the cutting-edge science of ‘alchemy’ is used to turn mud into gold. Because historical records do not support such preposterous theories, the state takes recourse to poetic fantasies, novels, plays, cinema, glamor, fashion, marketing, branding etc etc to hoodwink the masses who are already sleeping! So we see terrorists like Akbar glamorized in fictions like Jodha-Akbar, or another sexual pervert/ criminal/ rapist like Jahangir portrayed as romantic hero in Mughal-e-Azam. Then such hoaxes receive raving critical reviews from all across. And in process, the fiction has been implanted in minds of the inebriated (drunk) population. On top of that, the age-old method of nurturing terrorists is used to nurture impotency in population – of training them from very childhood. Thus from very childhood through education system, history books, story books, creative works, postal stamps etc following ideas are injected to become part of our identity -

that Aryans came from outside India and raped/looted inhabitants in India,

that each butcher Muslim ruler was actually a saint,

that the drunk ‘harem’i terrorist homosexual child-abuser Babur was a pious person,

that Shah Jahan built a Taj Mahal in memory of his 4th wife (out of 7 in total) whom he married after murdering her ex-husband, who died giving birth to 14th tangible outcome of Shahjahan’s perversion and whose sister then found place in Shahjahan’s bed after her death,

and so on…

And when we grow up, bulk of us now take the cudgel to defend this ‘mytho-secularism’ and destroy whatever true history remains. The factory keeps producing one traitor after another, one impotent after another and those among us who still retain their potency despite all the castration attempts live with the pain of seeing our own brothers and sisters becoming enemies of our motherland. This minority has been living with the dream of bringing back truth and justice for ages. They have been fighting against enemies within and outside to come one step closer to the goal and have been sacrificing family, life, everything for this elusive vision. They don’t know clearly which enemy are they fighting and which friend they are defending because both are spread everywhere all around. But they simply know that they have to carry the flag of Dharma high to offer their gratitude to those heroes who carried this flag for them. And thanks to great endeavors of these role models, we are closer to the goal than never before in last 1000 years.

To take a step closer, we present one more hoax of this mytho-secularism – regarding the sword of Tipu Sultan. Thanks to our history text-books and the famous Sanjay Khan’s serial “Sword of Tipu Sultan”, marketing of Mysore Palace as Tipu’s marvel and other gimmicks, one of the most brutal, perverted fanatic terrorist who would put any Osama Bin Laden to shame is portrayed as a hero of Indian history!

Let us explore the real history, however, and discover the true character of this terrorist. This exploration has been provided to us by Alpha - a long time patron of Agniveer. We present both the text and pdf version for free distribution and circulation. We hope this would help both those influenced by false glorification of villains, as well as those being helplessly passive to stand up and work towards building foundation of a truthful just Bharat. And in process, establish true secularism.

Tipu himself left behind personal accounts of his atrocities against the Hindus. These details can be found in two autobiographies: Sultan-ut Tawarikh and Tarikh-i-Khudadadi, housed in the India Office Library, London. Noted historian KM Panicker chanced upon Tipu’s correspondence at the India Office Library. These have since been published. Take a letter (March 22, 1788) written to Abdul Khadar: “Over 12,000 Hindus were honoured with Islam … Local Hindus should be brought before you and then converted to Islam. No Namboodri should be spared.”

In a letter (December 14, 1788), he said to his army commander in Calicut: “You should capture and kill all Hindus. Those below 20 years may be kept in prison and 5,000 from the rest should be killed hanging from treetops”. Writing on January 19, 1790, to Badroos Saman Khan, he said: “I have achieved a great victory recently in Malabar and over four lakh Hindus were converted to Islam. I am now determined to march against the cursed Raman Nair.” Tipu issued orders in different parts of Malabar: “All means, truth or falsehood, fraud or force, should be employed to effect their (Hindu) universal conversion to Islam” (Historical Sketches of the South of India in an attempt to trace the History of Mysore, Mark Wilks Vol II, page 120).

Tipu corresponded with Zaman Shah, grandson Ahmad Shah Abdali and ruler of Afghanistan before the Third Mysore War (1792) and continued to do so till 1798. These letters were translated by Kabir Kausar in The History of Tipu Sultan. In one place, he wrote: “My exalted ambition has for its object a holy war … In the midst of this land the Almighty protects this trace of Muhammadan dominion like the Ark of Noah and cuts short the extended arm of the abandoned infidel”. In a letter dated February 5, 1797: “We should unite in carrying on a holy war against the enemies of our religion…. Thine armies shall … render us victorious.”

What Fra Bartolomaco, a Portuguese traveller and historian, saw in Malabar in 1790, he recorded in Voyage to East Indies: “Most of the men and women were hanged in Calicut … That barbarian Tipu Sultan tied naked Christians and Hindus to the legs of elephants … till the bodies … were torn to prices. Temples and churches were ordered to be burnt down, desecrated and destroyed … I myself helped many victims to cross the Varappuzha river” (pgs 141-142).

The sword of Tipu Sultan carried an inscription in Persian: “My victorious Sabre is lightening for the destruction of the unbelievers. Thou art our Lord, make him victorious who promotes the faith of Muhammad. Confound him, who refuses the faith of Muhammad and withold us from those who are so inclined” (History of Mysore, CH Rao, Vol III, p 1073). The Mysore Gazetteer also provides details about Tipu’s destruction of over 800 temples in South India. Who should we believe – Mr Nadwi or what Tipu Sultan’s own accounts and other contemporary records?

This is the English translation of the Malayalam article by P.C.N. Raja first published in Kesari Annual of 1964. The late Raja was a senior member of the Zamorin Royal Family.)

RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE OF TIPU SULTAN BY LATE P.C.N. RAJA

INTRODUCTION

Tipu Sultan had, ruled his kingdom only for sixteen-and-a-half years, from December 7, 1782 to May 4, 1799. The territory of Malabar was under his effective control only for a short period of eight years. If he had not secured the assistance of the wily Purnaiyya, there would not have been so many Muhammadans in the states of Kerala and Karnataka. Hindus also would not have become less prosperous, and fewer in number.

When that Brahmin Prime Minister, Purnaiyya, presented to Tipu Sultan 90,000 soldiers, three crore rupees, and invaluable ornaments made of precious stones, he was tempted to rule as the Emperor of the South India. Tipu did not consider the Hindu rulers of Maharashtra, Coorg and Travancore or the Muslim ruler Nizam as impediments. He was afraid of only the British. He had convinced himself that he could easily become the Emperor of South India if he could somehow vanquish the British. Because of his intense and-British attitude, the so-called progressive and secular historians have made a vain attempt to paint Tipu Sultan as a great national hero.

Opposition to foreign powers need not always be due to love for one’s country. To achieve his selfish goal and to face the British forces, Tipu Sultan sought the assistance of another foreign power, the French, who were manoeuvring to establish their own domination in the country. How is it possible, therefore, for Tipu Sultan to be an enemy of foreign forces when he himself had sought help from Napoleon who was then a prisoner in St. Helena Island and also the French King, Louis XVI?

Besides, he also wanted to establish Islamic rule in the country; to achieve that he had to first defeat the British. For this purpose, Tipu Sultan solicited the assistance of Muslim countries like Persia, Afghanistan and Turkey. It is true that Tipu did not harm the Raja of Cochin or anyone for that matter who surrendered and pledged loyalty to him. But how does that make him a friend of Hindus?

Tipu and the Nizam were the only Muslim rulers in the Deccan at that time and hence he wanted to avoid any dispute with the Nizam. He insisted that the Nizam should agree to give his daughter in marriage to his son. But the Nizam, considering Tipu as an upstart with no aristocratic heredity, refused the offer. (According to Bhagwan Gidwani, Hyder Ali Khan had suggested earlier to the Nizam that he should agree to the marriage of his daughter to the young Tipu, then in his teens.) As if to spite the Nizam, Tipu Sultan got another of his sons married to the daughter of Arackal Bibi of Cannanore mainly to secure the loyalty of Malabar Muslims for subjugating the entire Malabar region. The result was for everybody to see in due course. It may be noted that the family of Arackal Bibi, though converted to Islam, followed the matriarchal system a system which the Muslim fanatic, Tipu, wanted to reform.
HE WANTED TO BE A PADISHAH

Sword-of-Tipu-Sultan

He wanted to become an Emperor after defeating the British. He wanted to achieve his ambition after consulting the astrologers. There were a few Brahmin astrologers in Sree Ranganatha Swami Temple. They predicted that if some of the suggested remedial rituals were performed, Tipu would achieve his cherished ambition. Believing that he could become the undisputed ruler of the whole of South India, after defeating the British, he performed all the suggested rituals in the Sree Ranaganatha Swami Temple, besides giving costly presents to the astrologers. This act is being widely interpreted by secularist historians as love and respect for Hindu religion and traditions! They also doubt if there were any Hindu temples which were desecrated or destroyed by Tipu Sultan and his Islamic army in Malabar.

The reputed historian, Lewis Rice, who wrote the History of Mysore after going through various official records, stated as follows: “In the vast empire of Tipu Sultan on the eve of his death, there were only two Hindu temples having daily pujas within the Sreerangapatanam fortress. It is only for the satisfaction of the Brahmin astrologers who used to study his horoscope that Tipu Sultan had spared those two temples. The entire wealth of every Hindu temple was confiscated before 1790 itself mainly to make up for the revenue loss due to total prohibition in the country.”

There are people who proclaim to the world that Tipu Sultan’s rule was fair and progressive in his own state of Mysore. It would be appropriate to have a look at what a Mysorean, M.A. Gopal Rao, stated a few years ago in one of his articles: ‘In a deliberately designed taxation scheme, the religious prejudice of Tipu Sultan became quite clear. His co-religionists, Muslims, were exempted from house tax, commodity tax and also the levy on other items of household use. Those who were converted to Muhammadanism, were also given similar tax exemptions. He had even made provisions for the education of their children. Tipu Sultan discontinued the practice of appointing Hindus in different administrative and military jobs as practised by his father, Hyder Ali Khan, in the past. He had deep hatred towards all non-Muslims. During the entire period of sixteen years of his regime, Purnaiyya was the only Hindu who had adorned the post of Dewan or minister under Tipu Sultan. In 1797 (two years before his death) among the 65 senior Government posts, not even a single Hindu was retained. All the Mustadirs were also Muslims. Among the 26 civil and military officers captured by the British in 1792 there were only 6 non-Muslims. In 1789, when the Nizam of Hyderabad and other Muslim rulers decided that only Muslims would be appointed henceforth in all Government posts, Tipu Sultan also adopted the same policy in his Mysore State. Just because they were Muslims, even those who were illiterate and inefficient, were also appointed to important Government posts. Even for getting promotions, one still had to be a Muslim under Tipu Sultan’s regime. Considering the interest and convenience of only Muslim officers, all the records relating to tax revenue, were ordered to be written in Persian rather than in Marathi and Kannada as followed earlier. He even tried to make Persian the State language in place of Kannada. In the end all the Government posts were filled by lazy and irresponsible Muslims. As a consequence the people had to suffer a great deal because of those fun-seeking and irresponsible Muslim officers. The Muslim officers, occupying important posts at all levels, were all dishonest and unreliable persons. Even when people complained to him with evidences against those officers, Tipu Sultan did not care to inquire about the complaints lodged.”
EVEN THE PLACE-NAMES WERE CHANGED

Gopal Rao had written all these on the basis of the writings of Tipu’s own son, Ghulam Muhammad, and Muslim historians like Kirmani. Even the Hindu names of places, the Sultan could not tolerate. Therefore, Mangalapuri (Mangalore) was changed to Jalalabad, Cannanore (Kanwapuram) to Kusanabad, Bepur (Vaippura) to Sultanpatanam or Faruqui, Mysore to Nazarabad, Dharwar to Quarshed-Sawad, Gooty to Faiz-Hissar, Ratnagiri to Mustafabad, Dindigul to Khaliqabad, and Calicut (Kozhikode) to Islamabad. It was after the death of Tipu Sultan that the local people reverted to old names.
ISLAMIC ATROCITIES IN COORG, BEDNUR, AND MANGALORE

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. In the period of confusion and anarchy prevailing in Sreerangapatanam during the last war of Tipu Sultan against the British, all the Coorgi prisoners escaped from the prison and became Hindus again after reaching their native kingdom. Against the solemn oath given to the Raja of Coorg, Tipu Sultan forcibly abducted a young princess from the Coorg royal family and made her his wife against her will.

The atrocities committed by Tipu Sultan in Bidnur in North Karnataka during and after its capture by him, were most barbarous and beyond description. Ayaz Khan who was Kammaran Nambiar from Chirackal Kingdom before his forcible conversion to Islam by Hyder Ali Khan, had been appointed as Governor of Bidnur. Tipu Sultan was jealous of and opposed to Ayaz Khan from the very beginning because Hyder Ali Khan had considered the latter more intelligent and smart. When Ayaz Khan learnt that Tipu Sultan was scheming to kill him secretly, he escaped to Bombay with plenty of gold. Tipu Sultan came to Bednur and forcibly converted its entire population to Islam. The people accepted Islam for the sake of their lives.

After the capture of Mangalore, thousands of Christians were also forcibly sent to Sreerangapatanam where all of them were circumcised and converted to Islam. Tipu Sultan’s justification was that during the Portuguese domination, prior to the arrival of the British, many Muslims had been converted to Christianity by their Missionaries. He proudly proclaimed his action as a sort of punishment for the conversion of many Muslims by the Portuguese.

Then he marched upto Kumbla on the northern borders of Kerala, forcibly converting to Islam every Hindu on the way. This time, his argument (repeated by the Muslim and secularist historians of today) was that if all belonged to one religion – Muhammadanism – there would be unity and consequently it would be easy to defeat the British!!!
INSIDE MALABAR

In Malabar, the main target 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. He disputes in his book Mukherjee’s version that Tipu Sultan had converted only his opponents. Normally even a cruel person kills or tortures only his enemies. But that argument does not justify the cruelties committed by him against innocent women and children.
DANCE OF THE ISLAMIC SATAN

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 mention that the Maniyoor mosque was once a Hindu temple. The local belief is that it was converted to a mosque during the days of Tipu Sultan.

Vatakkankoor Raja Raja Varma in his famous literary work, History of Sanskrit Literature in Kerala, has written the following about the loss and destruction faced by the Hindu temples in Kerala during the military regime (Padayottam) of Tipu Sultan: “There was no limit as to the loss the Hindu temples suffered due to the military operations of Tipu Sultan. 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 have not yet been fully rectified.”
KOZHIKODE MADE A GRAVEYARD

As per the provisions of the Treaty of Mangalore of 1784, the British had allowed Tipu Sultan to have his suzerainty over Malabar. ‘In consequence, the Hindus of Malabar had to suffer the most severe enormities the world had ever known in history,’ observes K.V. Krishna Iyer, in his famous book, Zamorins of Calicut, based on historical records available from the royal house of Zamorins in Calicut. “When the second-in-line of Zamorins, Eralppad, refused to cooperate with Tipu Sultan in his military operations against Travancore because of Tipu’s crude methods of forcible circumcision and conversion of Hindus to Islam, the enraged Tipu Sultan took a solemn oath to circumcise and convert the Zamorin and his chieftains and Hindu soldiers to Islamic faith,” he adds.

L.B. Boury writes: “To show his ardent devotion and steadfast faith in Muhammaddan religion, Tipu Sultan found Kozhikode to be the most suitable place. It was because the Hindus of Malabar refused to reject the matriarchal system, polyandry and half-nakedness of women that the ‘great reformer’ Tipu Sultan tried to honour the entire population with Islam.” To the Malabar people, the Muslim harem, Muslim polygamy and the Islamic ritual of circumcision were equally repulsive and opposed to the ancient culture and tradition in Kerala. Tipu Sultan sought a marriage alliance with the matriarchal Muslim family of Arackal Bibi in Cannanore. 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 Sultan’s Islamic cruelties. He did not spare even women and children. Most of the men escaped to forests and foreign lands.

Elamkulam Kunjan Pillai wrote in the Mathrubhoomi Weekly of December 25, 1955: “Muhammadans greatly increased in number. Hindus were forcibly circumcised in thousands. As a result of Tipu’s atrocities, strength of Nairs and Chamars (Scheduled Castes) significantly diminished in number. Namboodiris also substantially decreased in number.”

The German missionary Guntest has recorded: ‘Accompanied by an army of 60,000, Tipu Sultan came to Kozhikode in 1788 and razed it to the ground. It is not possible even to describe the brutalities committed by that Islamic barbarian from Mysore.” C.A. Parkhurst also noted that ‘Almost the entire Kozhikode was razed to the ground.”
TEMPLES DESTROYED

Thali, Thiruvannur, Varackal, Puthur, Govindapuram, Thalikkunnu and other important temples in the town of Kozhikode as well as those nearby were completely destroyed as a result of Tipu’s military operations. Some of them were reconstructed by the Zamorin after he returned following the defeat of Tipu Sultan in Sreerangapatanam and the Treaty of 1792.

The devastation caused by Tipu Sultan to the ancient and holy temples of Keraladheeswaram, Thrikkandiyoor and Thriprangatu in Vettum region was terrible. The Zamorin renovated these temples to some extent. The famous and ancient Thirunavaya Temple, known throughout the country as an ancient teaching-centre of the Vedas, revered by the devotees of Vishnu from Tamil Nadu, and existing before the advent of Christ, was also plundered and destroyed by Tipu’s army (Malabar Gazetteer). After dismantling and destroying the idol, Tipu converted the Thrikkavu Temple into an ammunition depot in Ponnani (Malabar Manual). It was the Zamorin who repaired the temple later. Kotikkunnu, Thrithala, Panniyoor and other family temples of the Zamorin were plundered and destroyed. The famous Sukapuram Temple was also desecrated. Damage done to the Perumparampu Temple and Maranelira Temple of Azhvancherry Thamprakkal (titular head of all Namboodiri Brahmins) in Edappadu, can be seen even today. Vengari Temple and Thrikkulam Temple in Eranadu, Azhinjillam Temple in Ramanattukara, Indyannur Temple, Mannur Temple and many other temples were defiled and damaged extensively during the military regime.

Tipu Sultan reached Guruvayoor Temple only after destroying Mammiyoor Temple and Palayur Christian Church. If the destruction caused by Tipu’s army is not visible today in the Guruvayoor Temple, it is mainly because of the intervention of Hydrose Kutty who had been converted to Islam by Hyder Ali Khan. He secured the safety of the temple and the continuation of land-tax exemption allowed by Hyder Ali earlier, besides the renovation and repairs done by the devotees later. According to available evidences, fearing the wrath of Tipu Sultan, the sacred idol of the Guruvayoor Temple was removed to the Ambalapuzha Sri Krishna Temple in Travancore State. It was only after the end of Tipu’s military regime, that the idol was ceremoniously reinstated in the Guruvayoor Temple itself. Even today, daily pujas are conducted in Ambalapuzha Sri Krishna Temple where the idol of Guruvayoor Temple was temporarily installed and worshipped.

Damages caused to the nearby temples at Parampathali, Panmayanadu and Vengidangu are visible even today. The deplorable state of the architecture of the sanctum sanctorum of Parampathali Temple destroyed during the military operations of Tipu Sultan is really heart-rending. The atrocities committed in Kozhikode during the nightmarish days of the military occupation are vividly described in the works of Fra Bartolomaeo who had travelled through Kerala at that time. How cruelly Tipu Sultan, ably assisted by the French Commander M. Lally, had treated the Hindu and Christian population can be clearly understood from his writings.
TALKING RECORDS OF KERALA HISTORY

Govinda Pillai says in his famous book, History of Literature; “During Malayalam Era 965 corresponding to 1789-90, Tipu Sultan crossed over to Malabar with an army of uncivilised barbarians. With a sort of fanatical love for Islamic faith, he destroyed many Hindu temples and Christian churches which were the custodians of precious wealth and religious traditions. Besides, Tipu Sultan abducted hundreds of people and forcibly circumcised and converted them to Islam – an act which was considered by them as more than death.”

A small army of 2000 Nairs of Kadathanadu resisted the invasion of the huge army of Tipu Sultan from a fortress in Kuttipuram for a few weeks. They were reduced to starvation and death. Tipu Sultan entered the fort and offered to spare their lives, provided they accepted conversion to Islam. The unfortunate lot of 2000 Nairs were then forced to eat beef after being converted to Islamic faith, at the end of usual religious ritual of mass circumcision. All the members of one branch of Parappanad Royal Family were forcibly converted to Muhammadan faith except for one or two who escaped from the clutches of Tipu Sultan’s army. Similarly, one Thiruppad belonging to Nilamboor Royal Family was also forcibly abducted and converted to Islam. Thereafter, it was reported that further conversions of Hindus were attempted through those converts. In the end, when the Kolathiri Raja surrendered and paid tribute, Tipu Sultan got him treacherously killed without any specific reason, dragged his dead body tied to the feet of an elephant through the streets, and finally hanged him from a tree-top to show his Islamic contempt for Hindu Rajas.

It may be mentioned here that the entire Wodayar Royal Family of Mysore had been humiliated and kept in prison by Hyder Ali Khan and Tipu Sultan in their capital city, Sreerangapatanam. Even the Palghat Raja, Ettipangi Achan who had surrendered, was imprisoned on suspicion and later taken to Sreerangapatanam. Nothing was heard of him subsequently. Christians in Palghat fled out of fear. Tipu Sultan terrified the entire Hindu population in Malabar, stationing his army contingents in different regions for the purpose. The tax initially imposed by Hyder Ali Khan was forcibly collected by Tipu Sultan. Standing crops were confiscated. This act provoked even some influential Mappila landlords to revolt against Tipu Sultan.

Hyder Ali Khan had exempted temples from the payment of land tax. But Tipu Sultan forced the temples to pay heavy taxes. The famous Hemambika Temple at Kalpathi of the Palghat Raja who had surrendered to Hyder Ali Khan, the Kachamkurissi Temple of the Kollamkottu Raja who had deserted the Zamorin and sided with Hyder Ali Khan, and also the Jain Temple at Palghat suffered serious damages due to the cruel policies of Tipu Sultan.

Many Nair and Brahmin landlords fled the country leaving their vast wealth behind. The Mappilas forcibly took possession of their lands and wealth. Tipu Sultan did not object to their actions. Most of the Mappila landlords of today claim that they purchased the ownership of the landed properties from Nairs and Brahmins after paying heavy compensation. These blatant lies are being repeated by them in spite of the fact that practically nothing was paid to the Hindu landlords then or later. (The same Islamic treachery was repeated during the Mappila riots of 1921.)

In any case, Tipu Sultan succeeded in mass killing, converting lakhs of Hindus to Islamic faith, driving thousands out of their traditional homes, and finally making the rest extremely poor. Many Hindus belonging to lower castes accepted conversion to Islam under duress. However, many others, especially the Thiyyas, fled to Tellicherry and Mahe for safety.

When the British established their rule in Malabar and the Hindu landlords made efforts to recover their landed properties, illegally occupied by the local Mappilas, Mullahs started preaching to their fanatic followers that “killing of Hindu landlords was a sacred Islamic act,” leading to frequent Mappila outrages in Malabar.

In Cherunad, Vettathunad, Eranad, Valluvanad, Thamarassery and other interior areas, local Mappilas unleashed a reign of terror on the Hindu population, mainly to retain the illegally occupied land and to establish their domination over Hindus as during Tipu’s regime. Fearing the organised robberies and violence, people could not even travel freely in the Malabar hinterland of predominantly Mappila population.

Lt. Col. E. Phitiyan, Andriansi, Mayan, K.P. Padmanabha Menon Sadasyathilakan T.K. Velu Pillai, Ullur Parameshwara Iyer, and other prominent people have described vividly the various types of atrocities committed by Tipu Sultan during the days of his Islamic rule in Malabar. There is no count of the wealth looted from Hindu temples and taken away by him to Sreerangapatanam. It is, therefore, very pitiable that a few shameless Hindus of today have come forward to orchestrate the nefarious propaganda of the fanatic Muslims, namely, that it was the imperialist divide-and-rule policy of the British that was responsible for blaming the Muslims for various atrocities committed against Hindus. This Big Lie was surreptitiously entered subsequently in history books and related records. It is obvious that these “Hindus” are speaking on the theme of Hindu-Muslim unity and praising the ‘secular’ credentials of the Muslim League, Tipu Sultan and Aurangzeb to the sky, not sincerely for the sake of Hindu-Muslim amity but only because of their inherent cowardice. They even proclaim that the notorious Mappila outrage of 1921 was part of the freedom struggle!
CONCLUSION

A few observations about the attack of Tipu Sultan on the Travancore State would be appropriate in this context. If the Nedunkotta had not been constructed earlier mainly to stop the danger from the powerful Zamorin, the same fate would have befallen the helpless Travancore State as well. Because of the above fortification, Tipu Sultan could wreak vengeance only in Angamally, Alwaye, Varapuzha, Alangod and other towns on the northern borders of Travancore State. That is what the Dewan of Travancore, Madhava Rao, had written in the history of Travancore. It may be emphasized here that he had relied on the original local records, not the ones published by the European historians. He wrote: “Whatever cruelties, the local Mappilas were desirous of indulging in the land, Tipu Sultan and his army of Muslim converts did. The ancient and holy temples were heartlessly defiled or burnt down. The ruins of those temples destroyed by Tipu’s fanatic army are the existing evidences of the atrocities committed by Muslims in the country. Christian churches also had to suffer widespread destructions. However, Tipu Sultan spared only the territories of Cochin Raja who had surrendered to Hyder Ali Khan in the beginning itself. Still, when Tipu Sultan and his army entered Parur and started firing at Kodungallur, the Cochin Raja sent a letter to the Travancore Raja requesting him ‘to protect me and my family’.” (A copy of the original letter was also published in the book.)

These are the recorded facts about the atrocities unleashed by Tipu Sultan during his military regime notoriously known as Padayottakalam. Poets have written a number of poems about the sufferings of the people and the land during those nightmarish days. The following was written by a member of the Katathanad Royal Family about the consequences of Padayottakalam:

“Oh Shiva! Shiva Lingam (idol) has gone (destroyed) from the temple, and also the Lingam (manliness) from the land:”

    what else can be expected when ncert books even are being supervised by non-hindus and anti rationalists ….

    i request Agniveer to keep showing us the true path …

  2. Vajra says

    To all Muslim and non Muslim friends
    Such eye opening articles need to be spread far and wide. However we must make sure that we dont start hating our Muslim Brothers and Sisters of today for the brutality of Ghazis shown in past. They (all Muslims of Indian subcontinent) are in fact victims of the Jehadi sword of terrorists like Tipu and others, whose ancestors were forcefully converted to Islam through sword and rape.

    So its time for our Muslim friends to reject the symbol of slavery, rape and force i.e. their false Islamic identity, which is a shame for them and their ancestors. My heartiest request to all our Muslim Brothers and sisters is to come back to Vedas, the Dharm of your beloved ancestors.

    It was Hyderali, the father of Tipusultan who usurped the Hindu Kingdom led by Wodeyars by deceit and conceit. Later when Tipu sultan became the ruler he abolished Kannada as the administrative language and imposed Persian as the court language and also as the language of administration. He was thus a traitor to the cause of Kannada language. When this was pointed out by Sri Shankara Murthy the present chairman to the Karnataka Legislative council there was furore from pseudo secular elements.However Sri Murthy stood firm.
    Dr S.L Bairappa is a well known Kannada writer. He has number of highly successful works to his credit. Two years ago he brought out a book ” Avarana” meaning enclosure where he has detailed the atrocities committed by Tipu sultan. Expectedly there were strong protests to this work from so called secular writers as well as politicians but Dr Bairappa replied with the history records. They were silenced and much to their chagrin the book became a stupendous success. It saw many reprints even before its formal release.
    The wodeyar dynasty which ruled the Mysore principality after the disintegration of Vijayanagar empire is held in high esteem and all the rulers that followed after the death of Tipu sultan has held the latter in contemptuous terms. Some years ago, When the congress was in power there was a proposal to put up the photo of Tipu sultan in all Govt offices, but the proposal had to be dropped when the present incumbent Chief Minister Yadiyurappa threatened that he would pull out and destroy these photos.

      @Abdul,

      I can understand you are outraged by pointing out atrocities caused by the people who happens to be following your faith.

      India has the third largest muslim population in the world, which was predominantly Hindu before muslim rulers began. Where does these many number of muslims came from. Who knows, your ancestral families may be once hindu and converted to Islam during muslim rule of 800 years over India).

      It is hard to accept truth, but one who accepts truth and lets past their hatred, then only you can go ahead.

      I dont completely agree with the article as there are some sentences which stirs up troubles and also told purely with hatred. May be Tipu Sultan is good for Muslims, but it seems like he acted everybody should follow Islam as their faith and has “jihadi” views.

      By the way, I hate people who become kings as a ancestral property, rather than by their own merit. Even though they might learn, they seem to be most notorious during their learning period to rule the kingdom (e.g. even a hindu king, Asoka).

      Christian conversions atleast in India seems to be done by cajoling more than bloodshed. That is not the case with Muslim rule that days in history to this day.

        • Naresh says

          Vajra,

          I dont know I didnt see the phrase or I read with a cool head this time for second time, i couldnt find the sentences i alluded to in my previous comment.

          Also, I cross checked with different sources, to know more about Tippu sultan and every where it echoes he is a steadfast doctrinaire. It happened to one of my historically less knowledgeable (he says himself) keralite friend, keralites despise Tippu’u rule in Kerala.

          Also I assume (but no supporting evidence for my claim), he might have got some sense of tolerance over time to hindu and christian cultures, as there are hindu and christian religions continue to stand after his reign.

      • Babu says

        rightly said my friend… today if I fight to save my home from a thief, I can’t be called a freedom fighter, its just that I am trying to protect my wealth…
        that is what tipu did.
        Unlike other freedom fighters as Gandhi, Subas chandra bose, Bhagat singh, chandrashekar azad, etc…they are the real freedom fighters…its better we teach our children and the future generations a proper history than that is doctrined and changed…
        good article…
        I would also like to bring to the notice of readers that there are quite a lot of books written in Kannada, even with a lot of actual letters printed to show them as proof…

        Great article, keep up the great cause…

        @Dev, you can’t use these words I am a muslim by birth and a true Indian. what’s problem with you guys why you want to still follow divide and rule policies. I don’t know about malabar and coorg but visit Srirangapatnam capital city of Hazrat Tipu, you can see a temple very next to his recedence. You know in Hazrat Tipu’s army majority were hindus if he was non secular then why the hell they supported him and fought with him. If he had demolished temples then why he gave precious gifts to temples which are still present as a proof of his secularism.

        For your kind info once Maratha army invaded mysore state attacked Sringeri Matt looted all its valuables, upon knowing this Tipu sultan dispatched an army for its rescue with valuables and still there are letters written by Tipu sultan to Acharya.

        Its a history which we read and we have not witnessed anything so I request to all my hindu brothers to be together and prove the world that indians are secular and united

      MR. Abdul tipu sultan was barbaric, heinous, coward, impotent person, which show their strength only convert innocence, ordinary hindus into islam, but in front of British army TIPU SULTAN KA PESSAB NIKAL GAYA, and british army demolished tipu’s empire. tipu fought with british only existence of his empire for conversion of hindus, to do cruelities on hindus not for country.

      • prashant says

        Mr.Vikas it is because of people like you that we indians got ruled by the british raj for so loang.. if we had more men like tippu and jhansi rani we would have kicked them out lonng back

    pseudo heroes like Tipu have been lapped up by TV serial producers and the young minds are being fed a very distorted history through thier idiot boxes.

    congrats!

  6. Satyen says

    I feel compassion for our brothers who have been alienated from us by the faithfuls. Ironically, our Muslim brothers whose ancestors were tortured, moaning and tearful womenfolks were kidnapped and youngsters converted to the religion of peace, are siding with the perpetrator ideology. They need to understand this. It’s not the misconstrued story but the facts as can be searched by anybody by simply reading the accounts of the 600 years from 1200 AD to 1800 AD. Now, not only the so called intellectuals but also and more importantly, the common masses belonging to both the Hindu and the Muslim communities, act on it. I mean they correct the mistakes. The Hindus should with folded hands accept their Muslim cousins in their fold and the Muslims by forgiving us not accepting them hitherto, come back to the home. Now, it’s the greatest noble unfulfilled task is yet to be completed. I think, it’s the panacea in this era apart from enlightening the world with the Vedas.

      • Satyen says

        It’s touching . Let’s act on it. Let’s raise the greatest army of heart healers and wisdom openers the mankind has ever seen. However this army won’t be for any material gains but for bringing the believers to the truth seekers’ fold where people won’t believe but will act to find the truth and live with it. This faith system is the cause of the anarchy of the mankind today as people are not required to find the truth but just stick a faith and fight for it without knowing whether it’s good for them. More importantly, the intellectuals belonging to the faith systems are putting all their energies to find the ways to defend the faith instead to search for the truth. We will have to develop a mechanism to change it.

    We had true Muslim heroes like Arya Ashfaqulla Khan, and then we had barbarians like Babur, Aurangzeb, and Tipu Sultan.

    People may commend Tipu Sultan for fighting against the British “outsiders”, but as this article clearly proves, Tipu did all that he could to destroy all that made the Land of Arya’s so great in the first place.

    By the loving grace of the Omnipresent and Omnipotent Ishwar, Tipu and his fellow terrorists and barbarians could not destroy the knowledge of the Vedas. Seeing as we have (and always will have) the Vedas, we will always have hope, humanity, and all the necessary tools to practice and restore true Dharma.

Take care and keep away from these corrupted people, they have lost their path and they are wandering now like blind people, Read Qur’an it has every answer to all questions posted on this site.

    Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world. But proclaim (to them) this (truth): that every soul delivers itself to ruin by its own acts: it will find for itself no protector or intercessor except Allah. if it offered every ransom, (or reparation), none will be accepted: such is (the end of) those who deliver themselves to ruin by their own acts: they will have for drink (only) boiling water, and for punishment, one most grievous: for they persisted in rejecting Allah.

    why you’re so unsecure.. n why you think everybody is trying to blame islam or defame it??

    you find each n every article of agniveer negative..then why you read them??

    why you always abuse agniveer team ???

    a logical person try to findout some facts… few right n few wrong along with some myth then write his/her own opinion according to his/her education n sources…

    gotta feeling that you hate so much to hinduism or against everybody who is not muslim that
    without proprly reading the articls yu start abusing & defending the islam..

    in tipu sultan’s article is nothing against islam wrttn only his wrong doings….

    to defend him yu should hv findout some of his good doing…

      That’s because, despite knowing the facts very well, they distort it & try to foster hatred amongst peace lovers

      Very well said, but misdirected (addressed to the wrong person). You should be asking this to team agniveer because they are the ones who repeatedly present distorted facts, quote out of context & abuse Islam.
      “in tipu sultan’s article is nothing against islam wrttn only his wrong doings….
      to defend him yu should hv findout some of his good doing…”
      Well, I guess I have provided sufficient evidence that Tipu Sultan was not the man as portrayed by agniveer team. Instead he was a secular ruler who cared for all his subjects irrespective of caste or creed. Please go through the URLs I’ve provided.
      Now, what say? :-)

        Also brother c.maan,
        Please understand that most of us here are born & brought up in India, amongst Hindu neighbours. We have very good friends amongst them & extend love & courtsey mutually.Infact I studied in a hindu institution & my parents encouraged me to learn Sanskrit so much so that I got commendations for my proficiency in that language (at that level).
        So please don’t think we hate Hindus or Hinduism. (And if at all anyone is hating Hindus or hinduism here, I’m sure it wouldn’t be as much as Team Agniveer hates Islam or muslims. :) Just in lighter vein)
        I request all the participants here (from both spectrums) to shun hatred for one another & instead resort to meaningful discussions in earnest search of The Truth.
        May God Almighty bestow His mercy upon all of us & guide us onto the right path.

    V. Jalaja Sakthidasan, Tippu Sultan, a fanatic?, Nithyananda Jothi Nilayam, Chennai 1990.

    This work touches upon the relationship that Tipu Sultan of Mysore maintained with the Sringeri Matha and Swami Sacchidananda Bharati (III), the then Sankaracharya of Sringeri. Contrary to some modern characterizations of Tipu Sultan as a fanatic Muslim ruler who persecuted his Hindu subjects, the records show that both Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan held the Sringeri Matha and other Hindu religious institutions in high reverence. During the Carnatic wars between Tipu and the British, some temples were damaged. Tipu Sultan wrote personally to the Sringeri Acharya, asking him to supervise the reconstruction and reconsecration of the temples in Kanchipuram and other places.

    Tipu’s power rested not only on his large, excellent army but on the great prosperity of the state he developed through humane and systematic agrarian and mercantilistic policies. Fearing God, exerting himself for his subjects, and indulgently forgiving transgressions, he firmly wiped out all stubborn disloyalty to the state without partiality to caste or creed.

    Like his father, Hyder Ali, who ruled the Mysore kingdom between 1761 and 1782, Tippu Sultan was also secular minded. Both of them, though they were considered as Muslims, never made any discrimination along the lines of religion. (In fact, Hyder Ali was the follower of no religion and Tippu followed the Sufi sect of Islam.)
    Many historical evidences unfold the fact that Tippu Sultan used to financially support many Hindu temples. He not only protected the big Ranganath Temple, which is situated vary close to his palace but also developed it. If he were to be a Muslim fanatic, he would have destroyed it. Many significant letters written by Tippu to Sringeri Matt were discovered in 1916 and these further justified the fact that he used to help Hindu temples. When Sringeri Matt, a Hindu religious place, was attacked and looted by the very Hindu Marathas, Tippu, considered being a Muslim king came forward to help financially and tried his best to make good the losses inflicted by the Marathas. But in the eyes of the Sangh Parivar Tippu is still a Muslim fanatic and Marathas who looted Hindu Matts and never fought against the Britishers but against their own countrymen for their selfish ends, are patriots!

      True Indian,

      I am also searching for a rare letter which Tippu wrote to Ahmed Shah Abdali to subjugate the kafir filth from the north & he would cleanse the south of kafirs. This letter has been stored in the archives probably in London & the govt/leftist historians will leave no stone unturned to prove this false! The article that I have written is taken from the Zamorin royal family descendant whose ancestors were at the revcieving end of Tippu’s intolerance. He never gave charities & the like, if you indeed made an attempt to read the article, it very clearly says why he spared the Ranganatha temple in Srirangapatna. I stay close to Mysore & am a frequent visitor to Mysore (visit at least once a month) & I can very well make out Tippu’s level of ‘tolerance’ ! Its not that we have cooked up something, we have presented what the historians of that time recorded truely (not the present day hypocrites like leftist historians aka Romila Thapar, Irfan Habib etc etc who would do anything to prove that all Islamic rulers were saints!)

      What answers do you have for his brutal killings and conversions of Hindus as given in article? We Kafirs are better than those whose ancestors converted to Islam due to fear of sword of Tipus. How will you judge whether your own ancestors were not raped and converted by these bastard Ghazis, who unfortunately are your role models? Are you from Arab? If not, accept the reality that you are praising rapists of your own mothers.

      Whole world knows that Muslim League, the first political representative of Muslims in India were the puppets of Britishers, it is a historical fact. They differed Congress on the issue of getting independence. Not only that, the so called brave Muslims could only produce a SINGLE MAN in its total history of Indian independence movement, who was executed because of his love for motherland, and it was Ashfaqulla Khan. He was also opposed by the “brave and patriot” Mullahs for his friendship with Ram Prasad Bismil, the famous revolutionary.

      So you see, you dare to bark only and when time comes for sacrifice, you wet your pants.

      True Muslims who are equal to 10 kafirs in bravery have been bashed 4 times by ten times weak Kafirs in last 60 years! I am talking about Indo Pak wars. Ten times more brave Akbar with all his might could not conquer ten times weak Kafir Rana Pratap, who was alone! Above all, Ten times weak Kafir Maharana Ranjit Singh conquered and ruled over today’s Pakistan and much of Afganistan, which was filled with ten times brave Muslims! Ten times weak Sushil Kumar, a Kafir from Delhi defeated many times, ten times stronger Muslims in wrestling! Ten times weak Hindus of India have always defeated ten times more stronger Pakistani Muslims in major wrestling and Kabaddi championships!

      Well you could not catch my point. I meant that if Muslims are ten times superior, they should have been on the top everywhere for all times. Is this the case? No. So your claim goes in vain. You were kicked from everywhere and now you live at the mercy of Christians, Jews and Hindus in a way that they invent everything and you use it. No Muslim country is known for its scientists but for coward acts like suicide bombings and beheading etc.

      By the way, do you know who you are? Your ancestors were Hindus! And what you are doing? Praising the invaders, rapists and killers of your ancestors. Shame on you! You are the one who shamelessly says that his mother was meant for getting raped by Arab invaders. Now you would have known what damage does Islam do on one’s mind that he starts praising the rapists of his own mother and sisters. Realize the truth Brother, dont live in fool’s paradise.

    If ur talking abt rajit singh

    After Maharaja Ranjit Singh died in 1839, after a reign of nearly forty years, leaving seven sons by different queens. He was cremated. His ceremony was performed by both Sikh and Hindu priests, his wife Maharani Mahtab Devi Sahiba, the Princess of Kangra, daughter of Maharaja Sansar Chand, the Empress of Punjab, committed Sati with Ranjit’s body as Ranjit’s head lay in her lap, some of the other wives also joined her and committed Sati.[52] The throne went to his eldest son Kharak Singh, who was not entirely fit and prepared to rule such a vast empire. Some historians believe that the other heirs would have forged an even more durable, independent and powerful empire, had they come to the throne before Kharak Singh. However, the empire began to crumble due to poor governance and political infighting among his heirs. The princes died through internal plots and assassinations, while the nobility struggled to maintain power [53].
    In 1845 after the First Anglo-Sikh War, Ranjit Singh’s Empire was defeated and all major decisions were managed by the British East India Company and there after they fought against india this elder don Dalip Singh was converted to Christianity in his youth due to east indai company fear———

      Again copied from Wikipedia! I strongly believe that Madarsas curriculum should be revised and instead of teaching false stories of Heroism of Baburs and Akbars, children should be fed with some reality and analytical abilities. But Alas! Logic, reasoning and skill of analysis are totally alien to Maulvis teaching there themselves then how come their students get these?

      Anyway my point still remains that 10 times “weaker” Maharaja Ranjit Singh conquered and ruled 10 times more brave Muslims of today’s Pakistan and much of Afganistan! Stories after his death have no relevance with this fact because I never claimed foolishly like you that any Hindu is superior to Muslim just because he is Hindu. But since you claimed so about Muslims, you need to tell us the reason of bashing of today’s and of past Muslims everywhere!

      Do you realize what you have done? Anyway, thanks for using “cruel Mughals” and accepting that Ghazis you are defending here were bastards of all time! But you pasted half material from Wikipedia, let me give few lines given in the same article from where you have copied

      “Maharana Pratap never accepted Akbar as ruler of India, and fought Akbar all his life. Akbar first tried diplomacy to win over Maharana Pratap but nothing worked. Pratap maintained that he had no intention to fight with Akbar but he could not bow down to Akbar and accept him as the ruler. Some scholars argue that there was some possibility that Maharana could have become friends with Akbar, but in the siege of Chittor Akbar had killed 27,000 civilians. This left a lasting impression on Maharana’s mind and he decided he could not bow to such an injustice and cruelty.”

      So accept now that Akbar was a mass murderer bastard who slaughtered 27000 innocents- These were the traditions and rapists of your ancestors, not so great to know that

      Hi @Proud to be Indian

      Please note that I am being religion neutral and trying to learn what each religion says and have doubts about existence of god itself. Majority of people are born into religion and brought up in it, and rarely gets an opportunity to evaluate the religion each follows and never compare with other religions. This creates intolerance towards others religions.

      I have to disagree with you using words like “fool” or any other foul language by others (http://agniveer.com/1143/sita-sings-the-blues/#comment-12760) are not praise worthy. Debate should be healthy and being gracious to agree if there is a valid point from others.

      My opinion about this article:

      1) During muslim rule in India, there is religious intolerance and atrocities took place. (Do you deny it?)
      2) Some of the practices either in Hinduism or Islam are questionable, but still people follow it blindly without thinking
      3) Tipu Sultan fought British, but it is the same case with every other small kingdom who do not want to loose their suzerainty of the land they are ruling. I commend his bravery of fighting, but do not support his way of running his kingdom.

      You are free to disagree as it is your right to have your own opinion. Although I will say I thought judiciously before arriving at my opinion.

      In Brief:

      1. We never claimed that Muslims are not patriots. We have a complete article on our role model Arya Ashfaqullah Khan on this site.

      2. We do not blame Muslims. On contrary we believe that Muslims have been greatest victims of the conspiracy going against them.

      3. All so-called Muslim rulers and invaders from Qasim to Bahadur Shah Zafar only used Islam for their political gains and were in fact a mockery in name of Islam. So there is nothing Hindu or Muslim about them. They were simply butchers and it is a shame that they are being glorified by our pseudo-intellectuals. And thus real role models like Arya Ashfaq and Hakim Khan Sur Pathan (who fought against Akbar in Haldighati) are forgotten

      4. Please provide us names of Muslim martyrs in freedom movement who were fighting for nation, and we would love to explore and write about them.

      5. This is also true that Hindus have produced a large number of traitors and we condemn that openly. Or else, how could butchers like Babur, Akbar, Jahangir, Shahjahan, Aurangzeb, Khilji, Ghori conquer this great nation. But our focus in this series is to expose those role models who were in reality criminals.

      6. Whatever we are doing is to integrate our Muslim brothers and sisters into mainstream and help them fight against their victimization in name of Islam by fraud Mullahs, Zakir Naiks, Imams etc. The Muslim population has been first created and then kept ‘Jaahil’ by design by rulers of so-called Islam as per views of Hassan Nisar. He rightly concludes that when today these rulers of Islam are such criminals, what would have been the situation then? Hassan Nisar is among the greatest intellectuals of Pakistan. We are in sync with him and his views explain mission of Agniveer:

        Islam is the Koran, Sira and Hadith. Without Mohammed there is no Islam. It does not matter what Naik or even this Nisar says. Forget them. The Trilogy – Koran, Sira and Hadith which revolve around Mohammed is what is important to understand Islam. Islam has not been hijacked. As PM of Turkey said there is no moderate Islam. Individual Muslims who identify with the nation (be it India or any non-Muslim nation) and are patriotic to the nation are the ones who are different from what Islam teaches. Islam apologists do no one a service – not non-Muslims who have been killed in the hundreds of millions for 1400 years of Islamic jihad, and to Muslims (who are often the descendants of non-Muslims who were brutalized) who are not confronted with the harsh truth of Middle Eastern Arabized Abrahamic faith of Islam. The dynamics you see in India all these centuries and today have nothing specifically to do with the religion of Hinduism. It has everything to do with Islam and how Islam treats the non-Muslim of any faith from any country and any continent. It is not about being Hindu but about being a non-Muslim. The only distinction in Islam among non-Muslims is whether they get to be dhimmis or not. Jews and Christians as older Middle Eastern Abrahamic faiths that Islam is supposed to replace, they get to be discriminated against dhimmis. Their choice was be a dhimmi convert or die. Traditionally all other non-Muslims did not automatically get to be dhimmis, so their choice was conversion or death (which can be commuted to enslavement). This is the fate may Persian Zoroastrians, Afghan/Indian Buddhists and Hindus faced. Only later were Zoroastrians, Hindus and Buddhists allowed to also be second class dhimmis. This is Islam. This is not Naik’s version or Nasir’s version of Islam. This is plain old Islam repeated in Moorish Spain to India.

        Political Islam Analyzed: http://www.politicalislam.com/principles/pages/five-principles/
        The Five Principles
        Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

        All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—Koran, Sira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).
        Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

        Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

        Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be abused in the worst ways or they can be treated like a good neighbor.

        Kafirs must submit to Islam in all politics and public life. Every aspect of kafir civilization must submit to political Islam.

        These Five Principles can be put in five words—Trilogy, politics, kafirs, dualism and submission. These five words bring clarity and ease of learning about political Islam.

        Up until now Islam has been hard to understand because it seemed complex and contradictory and did not make sense. But, once you see how the Five Principles work, everything falls into place. Complexity becomes simplicity. Chaos becomes order.

        All CSPI books are based on these Five Principles.
        1. trilogy
        The Trilogy contains three books—

        The Koran is what Mohammed said that the angel Gabriel said that Allah said. But the Koran does not contain enough guidance for one to be a Muslim. The Koran repeatedly says that all of the world should imitate Mohammed in every way. Mohammed’s words and deeds are called the Sunna. The Sunna is found in two different texts—the Sira and Hadith.

        The first source of the Sunna is the Sira which is Mohammed’s biography. The most authoritative version is by Ibn Ishaq.

        The other source of the Sunna is the Hadith, the Traditions of Mohammed. There are several versions of Hadith, but the most commonly used is by Bukhari.
        So the Trilogy is the Koran, Sira and Hadith.

        2. political islam
        Political Islam is the doctrine that relates to the unbeliever, the kafir. Islam’s relationship to the kafir cannot be religious since a Muslim is strictly forbidden to have any religious interaction with them The religion of Islam is what is required for a Muslim to avoid Hell and enter Paradise.

        The Trilogy not only advocates a religious superiority over the kafir—the kafirs go to Hell whereas Muslims go to Paradise—but also its doctrine demands that Muslims dominate the kafir in all politics and culture. This domination is political, not religious.

        As mentioned earlier, the Koran has 61% of its text devoted to the kafir. The Sira (Mohammed’s biography) has about 75% of its text devoted to the kafir and jihad.

        Islam’s success comes primarily from its politics. In thirteen years as a spiritual leader, Mohammed converted 150 people to his religion. When he became a political leader and warrior, Islam exploded in growth, and Mohammed became king of Arabia in ten years.

        Islam has a complete doctrine of how to treat the kafir that is found in the Trilogy.

        3. kafirs
        Non-believers are so important that they have several names. Christians and Jews are called People of the Book or infidels. Other religious names for non-Muslims are atheist, polytheist, and pagan. But the Koran uses one word that includes all of the religious names. That name is kafir, an Arabic word.

        Kafir is usually translated as unbeliever, but that translation is wrong. Unbeliever is a neutral word. The Koran is very clear about the kafir. Indeed, the Koran defines the kafir by how it speaks of them. Kafirs are the lowest and worst form of life. Kafirs can be robbed, murdered, tortured, enslaved, crucified and more. Later in this chapter, more of the Koran’s doctrine of the kafir is given in some detail. But the key point is that a kafir is not only a non-Muslim, but also a person who falls under a different moral code from the Muslim.

        The Koran is devoted to the division between those who believe Mohammed, Muslims, and those who do not, kafirs. This grand division of the Koran means that there are two points of view of the Koran—the view of the Muslim and the view of the kafir.

        4. dualism
        The third principle is duality, and is unique to Islam. As an example, here is a verse from the Koran:

        109:2 I do not worship what you worship, and you do not worship what I worship. I will never worship what you worship, and you will never worship what I worship. You to your religion, me to my religion.

        This sounds very tolerant, but this verse was written later:

        9:5 When the sacred months are passed, kill the kafirs wherever you find them. Take them as captives, besiege them, and lie in wait for them with every kind of ambush. If they submit to Islam, observe prayer, and pay the poor tax, then let them go their way. Allah is gracious and merciful.

        Now we have absolute intolerance. This contradiction is normal for the Koran and is even addressed in the Koran. The solution to contradiction is called abrogation where the later verse is better than the earlier verse.

        The logic here is very important. Since Allah is perfect and the Koran is the exact words of Allah, then both contradictory verses are true, but the later verse is better or stronger. This leads to dualistic logic where two contradictory facts can both be true.

        5. submission
        Islam means submission and Muslim means one who has submitted. It is clearly stated in the Trilogy that all kafirs and their civilizations must be annihilated. Mohammed’s success depended on violence to persuade kafirs that he was the prophet of Allah.

        Submission is political, as well as religious. Islam demands that kafirs submit in every aspect of public life. Every part of kafir culture is an offense to Allah.

    Before reading this article I really was a true fan of Tipu Sulatan because he fought with british and was thinking bad about Marathas because they did not help him in that war but now I explored the things and understood how far I was from the facts. You know how difficult it is to go against the long time beliefs and I had to read so many books and articles to believe this thing and really I regret liking Tipu. On the other hand I truly by heart appreciate Ashafq, Abdul gaffar khan, maulana abul kalam azad and love getting birth in their India. I also wish to mention that I am a Software Professional and you have made my mind to be willing to read and understand Satyarth Prakash and true manusmriti. You are indeed a true brainstormer by presenting the facts in such a great way and you got a new fan….

    हैदर अली की म्रत्यु के बाद उसका पुत्र टीपू सुल्तान मैसूर की गद्दी पर बैठा। गद्दी पर बैठते ही टीपू ने मैसूर को मुस्लिम राज्य घोषित कर दिया। मुस्लिम सुल्तानों की परम्परा के अनुसार टीपू ने एक आम दरबार में घोषणा की — “मै सभी काफिरों को मुस्लमान बनाकर रहूंगा।”तुंरत ही उसने सभी हिन्दुओं को फरमान भी जारी कर दिया.उसने मैसूर के गाव- गाँव के मुस्लिम अधिकारियों के पास लिखित सूचना भिजवादी कि, “सभी हिन्दुओं को इस्लाम में दीक्षा दो।

    जो स्वेच्छा से मुसलमान न बने उसे बलपूर्वक मुसलमान बनाओ और जो पुरूष विरोध करे, उनका कत्ल करवा दो. उनकी स्त्रिओं को पकडकर उन्हें दासी बनाकर मुसलमानों में बाँट दो।” इस्लामीकरण का यह तांडव टीपू ने इतनी तेजी से चलाया कि, पूरे हिंदू समाज में त्राहि त्राहि मच गई. इस्लामिक दानवों से बचने का कोई उपाय न देखकर धर्म रक्षा के विचार से हजारों हिंदू स्त्री पुरुषों ने अपने बच्चों सहित तुंगभद्रा आदि नदिओं में कूद कर जान दे दी। हजारों ने अग्नि में प्रवेश कर अपनी जान दे दी, किंतु धर्म त्यागना स्वीकार न…ही किया।

    A bold and eye opening article by Agniveer.

    It is a pity Indian history has been totally distorted under the influence of pseudo seculars. This is the gravest sin to Indian people. Truth must be brought to the public othervise the sinful will continue getting support. Recently I visited Chittor Garh fort and saw hundreds of beautiful temples destroyed by Akbar who also massacred 20000 helpless fort inmates on his victory. However, in history Akbar is proclaimed greatest Indian kings!
    Tipu is glorified as a freedom fighter while his true story is portrayed here, however, these facts have been totally hidden from the history books.
    One UK leader says “Islam is always on the offensive because it can not defend against scruitny”, result is terrorism that the humanity is facing for the last 1400 years.
    Websites like http://www.faithfredom.org have critically dissected islam and its true colours. A must visit site.

      It is not only Indian history that was distorted. See the video I posted above. European and Mediterranean history has been white washed of Muslim atrocities and Muslims shown only positively. You must have heard how Moorish Spain was a great period of religious tolerance. Not so. It was far from a liberal secular utopia. http://www.newenglishreview.org/Norman_Berdichevsky/The_Myth_of_the_Golden_Age_of_Tolerance_in_Medieval_Muslim_Spain/

      “…Apologists for Islam never tire of referring to the “Golden Age” of tolerance that supposedly characterized seven centuries of Muslim dominated Spain. This fundamentally flawed assessment draws the wrong conclusion based on fragmentary evidence and distorts the larger picture. It ignores the reality of enormous destruction wrought by the three Arab-Berber Muslim invasions that repeatedly sought to hold on to control and rule over the indigenous peoples of Spain who had been reduced to second class citizens in their own homeland. …”

      You can see a pattern of historical distortion from Europe to India.

    Your statement is absolutely true.

    However, this is the time of information technology. The thousand year old propaganda is getting exposed at a fast pace.
