Tipu Jayanti: Prohibitory orders imposed in Karnataka's Kodagu

Tipu Jayanti: Prohibitory orders imposed in Karnataka's Kodagu

To avoid the similar situation, the police has imposed a banning order under section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) at Madikeri town in Kodagu district and in about 270km from here.

Though many historians see Tipu Sultan, also known as the "Tiger of Mysore", as the first freedom fighter to take on the British, he is not widely admired in the Kodagu district of Karnataka. "Besides the regular police, we will deploy Home Guard personnel", Suneel Kumar said.

Bengaluru has come under a thick security blanket ahead of the "Tipu Jayanti" celebrations organised across the state by the government on Friday to mark the birth anniversary of the 18th century ruler of the Mysore Kingdom.

However, any procession "for or against" Tipu Jayanti has been disallowed, Kumar added. All security arrangements will be made to maintain law and order in the city.

#The police commissioner said 30 Karnataka State Reserved Police (KSRP) platoons and 25 armed platoons, besides policemen and officers of city police will be deployed.

I couldn't even tie up my shoes. "I have only positive things to say about Robert Whittaker". "I don't know. Pierre explained. "It's not my job to think about that, it's (for) the UFC and my agent".

Union Minister of State for Skill Development, Anantkumar Hegde has earlier opened about his displeasure towards the celebration by writing a letter to Karnataka Chief Minister's Secretariat and Uttara Kannada DC. In contrary, the BJP and the RSS views are completely different from those of the state government, who regard Tipu Sultan as a tyrant monarch for being biased against Hindus.

Since 2015, the Congress government in Karnataka has held public celebrations on the birth anniversary of Tipu Sultan right-wing wing groups, led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have opposed the move.

The opposition BJP and some outfits are opposed to Tipu Jayanti celebrations.

With Tipu Jayanti Virodhi Samiti declaring a district bandh on Friday, more than 1,500 police personnel, 16 sector magistrates have been deployed to prevent outbreak of violence.
