Sanghi : I hate Tipu Sultan.

Me : Do you love Netaji Bose??

Sanghi : He is my Hero.

Even the flag of All India Forward Bloc (AIFB) has the Leaping Tiger of Tipu Sultan

Netaji called his government in exile "Arzi Hukumat-e-Azad Hind", with a cabinet consisting of a woman, and 30% Muslims.
"The insignia of Charkha at the centre of the tricolour flag of the Congress was replaced by the 'Leaping Tiger' of the standard of Tipu Sultan by the Azad Hind Government."
