Mysuru: Udupi Pejawar Mutt Seer Sri Vishwesha Theerta Swamiji has welcomed the decision of the State Government to cancel Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebration. It was a state sponsored event since the year 2016.
Swamiji told media persons on Wednesday ‘However, it is better for the government to celebrate jayanti of non- controversial persons from the minority community’.
Tipu was a controversial ruler who had massacred Hindus during his regime. It is also documented in the history.
The Iyengar community was shaken during his tyrannical rule and still do not celebrate Deepavali festival.
Though there was a ban on cow slaughter, the previous government had revoked the order. Both the central and State Government should take uniform decision to save the cattle.
