In September 1990, Petition for special leave to appeal (Civil) was filed against the judgement dated August 30, 1990, passed by Bombay High Court.
(1/n) @TOIIndiaNews #TipuSultan #TipuSultanJayanti Image
The Petitioners had produced the relevant Gazetteers of #Mysore and #Kerala and the letters of #TipuSultan at the time of hearing at the #BombayHighCourt. They had proved that:
1. He claimed to be a #Paigambar.

2. He adopted the title of #Baadshah.

3. He sometimes designated his own State as "Sircar-e-Khodadad -e- usud-ilhye -e- Ahmady" - in plain language, an #IslamicState.
4. He introduced a new calendar beginning with the birth of #Mohammed the #Prophet, and the names of the months and years were in Arabic language and Hijra calendar.

5. He changed the Hindu names of cities, towns, villages, and fords to Muslim names in the State of Mysore.
6. Inscriptions on #Tipu's sword, on stones, on coins, and on gold mohurs were in the name of #Allah, or in the name of prophet Mohammed, or in praise of #Islam, or for the destruction of unbelievers and #infidels #Kafirs (#Hindus).
7. He invented new names for his coins. His gold and silver coins were named after the saints of #Islam. His copper coins bore the #Arabic and #Persian names of stars.
The first double paisa of #Tipu was named #Afzal Khalifa. Some pagoda pieces were called #Ahmadi, one of the names of the Prophet.

8. He introduced new weights and measures.

9. The list of chiefs of every province and district showed only #Muslim names.
All the strategic positions were held by #Muslims, and not a single #Hindu name is found.

10. He created two types of troops or corps - Ahmadis and Usud Illeye. The #Hindu captives were #converted as Usud Illye and the rest were said to be Ahmadis.
11. His commands were promulgated in the #language of the #Koran, particularly in keeping with passages from Chapter II, IX, and LXI.

The #Quran says:"Fight with those who do riot believe in #God and in the last day, and who do not consider those things as unlawful........
.....which #God and his #Prophet have prohibited and profess not the true religion, and fight with those unto whom the scriptures have been given until they pay tribute by right of subjugation and be rendered low."
#Tipu proclaimed: "It is our constant object and sincere intention that those worthless and stiffnecked infidels (#Hindus) who have turned aside from their heads from obedience to the true #believers, and openly raised the standard of infidelity should be chastised.....
(11/n) the hands of the faithful and made either to acknowledge the true religion or to pay #tribute."
12. He regarded the #war in #Kerala as #holy: "Having come to the #resolution of prosecuting a #HolyWar against them, deem it expedient."
13. He proclaimed that his commanders should serve #Islam: "Promoting the prosperity and advantage of the people of Islam and the overthrowing of unrighteous #infideles, you will do whatever may be in your power to increase the lustre of the firm #religion of #Mohammed.
14. He was out to humiliate the #Hindus and glorify #Islam: "By the blessings of #Allah and the aid of the #Prophet, the forces of the accursed, having experienced a signal defeat and chastisement, have turned their faces to flight, and the troops of.......
.....#Islam are victorious over the enemies of the #faith. Thus the army of the accursed infidels has been trodden underfoot by the hoofs of the horses of #Islam and rendered vile and miserable, while the religion of Mohammed has been thereby made to flourish....
.....You, Sir, will, therefore, apply with all your heart the best means of advancing the #religion of #Mohammed and of administering to the support of #Islam."
15. He appealed to the #Muslims abroad, especially the #Asian Sultans, to help him in his mission. He wrote to Zaman Shah, ruler of #Afghanistan & to the #Persian and #Turkish rulers.
He pleaded them to invade #NorthIndia and depose the infirm (Moghul) king who had reduced the faith to this state of weakness.
16. He wrote to #ZamanShah, the king of #Afghanistan, that "we should come together in carrying on a #holy #war against the #Kafir #Hindus, and for freeing the region of Hindustan from the contamination of the enemies of our religion".
17. He sent delegations to #Kabul, #Basra, #Istanbul, #Mauritius, and #Paris, and embassies to #Persia, #Turkey, and #Constantinople, that is, to the Caliph of #Islam.
18. He invited the #French for help against the #British in #India for his own purpose. He planned to divide #SouthIndia between himself and the French. There were written agreements between the two parties in this respect.
He requested the #French to supply ten thousand trained #Europeans and thirty thousand #negros.

19. He demolished eight thousand #Hindu #temples and forcefully converted thousands of #Hindus and #Christians.

A sheer exhibition of Hindu scriptures moulded in life-like sculptures.

For artists, it is an art gallery left behind by the great creators for the reference of the generations to come... For a layman, it is a school to learn history through easy pictorial representation.
(1/5) Image
But....#The temple so excellent, the architecture so brilliant and the art so perfect meant nothing to the barbaric invaders.
The chopped off noses, hands and destroyed exterior tells us how thi#s beauty and devotion of hundreds of artists was #mercilessly blown off by those who came to loot and destroy a #culture, a #religion...

Once called ‘Dwarasamudra’ the Hoysala capital was sacked twice, by the marauding army of the Delhi Sultan, Ala-ud-din Khilji under the command of his famed General, Malik Kafur in the 14th century CE. Image
After this the Hoysalas deserted the capital which came to be known as Halebidu, meaning ‘Old Town’. All that survives of the glorious past are a few exquisitely carved temples.
This six feet high dvarapalas wearing jewelry on both sides of the doorways is sheer excellence of Hoysala architecture. Each has four hands (two broken, others damaged), wear jatamakuta, have third eye and fangs, and stand in S-shaped tribhanga pose.

Story of #Indonesia that #Twitter does not want you to know:

Until the 16th century, Indonesia was 100% #Hindu-#Buddhist(except the negligible elite of Kedah sultanate).

Today, Hindus and Buddhists are not even 1% and #Muslims are 88%. What led to such a drastic change?
(1/7) Image
Expect for a handful of people on #Bali Island, #Hinduism in Indonesia is extinct.

The #Mosque shown in (1/7) is known as Meenara Kudus mosque. Built-in 1549, it is the oldest lasting mosque of #Indonesia. It is a Dargah of a Sufi wali-Sanga (saint) known as Sunan kudus.
The Dargah tells us a lot about how Sufi #Islam spread in #Indonesia. It is built by demolishing a #HinduTemple. The temple ruins can still be seen.

There is an interesting story. When #temples were destroyed to make way for mosques, #Hindus did not enter the mosques.

Holiest number 108🚩

In the Sanskrit language, there are 54 alphabets as opposed to the 26 in English. Each has masculine ( Shiva) and feminine (Shakti). 54 times 2 is 108.
The distance between the sun and the earth is 108 times the sun's diameter. Also, the distance between the moon and the earth is 108 times the moon's diameter. And hence the moon appears the same size as the sun during eclipse
In China, the taoists and the Buddhists use a 108 Bead mala known as Su-chu. This mala or sacred string has three dividing beads so that the string is divided into three parts, containing 36 beads each.

Tricks, words and tactics. Nowadays jihadists are writing #Vedas, #Upanishads and #Gita, their purpose is to misinterpret and defile the traditional #religion ... This is also an example of tactical #jihad.
(1/6) ImageImageImageImage
The book of #HarafPrakashani, these books are being published from #Kolkata. Aggression has not stopped even today!

To insult #Hinduism, the mullahs would misinterpret the Hindus with reference to the #Vedas.
It will be said that the Vedas speak of Hindus eating cows. In this way, they will contaminate the traditional religion with wrong information. Various groups, IDs, pages have been created on social media Facebook with the names of Hindu girls and boys.
