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?

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