Braberic Tipu Sultan - From the diary of Francois Ripaud.
François Fidèle Ripaud de Montaudevert (1755–1814) was a French privateer, notable for bringing a group of French soldiers from Isle de France (Mauritius) to aid Tipu Sultan against the British in South India.
He had heard a lot about Tipu Sultan
but when He came to live in Tipu's state, Ripaud was disgusted when he came to know the real face of Tipu. Ripaud had assumed that Tipu was a noble leader who respected the opinion of his people. But it was not the truth.
It was stated in his dairy in Jan 14, 1799 that Ripaud was disturbed by the view from his fort where Brahmins were chopped daily and their followers were made to see it, which was carried on by the soldiers on the instructions of Tipu.
People were forced to get converted to Islam and were forced to marry men and woman of that religion. Many brave citizens opposed to get converted and marry but were killed brutally.
In Ripaud’s another dairy entry he states that huge number of Hindu men and women were hanged to death. Mothers were hanged along with their kids. In another barbaric act, Christian and Hindus were tied to the legs of elephants and it was made to move until their body was divided
Kozhikode had 7000 Brahmin families but soon 2000 families were perished by brutality of Tipu's army. It once flourished with great cultural practice. But soon it was destroyed. They didn’t even spare women and children.
Ripaud was shocked and devastated by all these practices of Tipu. Ripaud was with him just for the benefit of France for time being.
But he wrote about cruelty of Tipu in his diary notes, Ripaud who was once a great admirer of Tipu Sultan.
