'Sultan and the Saffron' by Economic and Political Weekly of December 1990.

Tipu Sultan and the story of 669 acres and 8000 pagodas. (extracted from Charles Stuarts catalog and memoirs of Tipu Sultan)
In 1716, the Dutch plundered and set fire to the Guruvayoor temple. Many Temples & Mosques were attacked. Guruvayoor Temple was rebuilt in 1747 AD.

Tipu Sultan made a huge grant of 669 acres to Guruvayur temple & also made arrangements for disbursing 8000 pagodas annually.
Very few Malayalis know this incredible story.

I have never read anything about Gandhi asking Savarkar to file mercy petitions before the British.

Any primary source or book source (Books written before 2008) about this info?? Or an another attempt to rewrite history?
Mahatma Gandhi lived in South Africa for 21 years, from 1893 to Dec 1914. At age 45, he returned to India, on Jan 1915.

Savarkar was lodged in the Cellular Jail on July 4th 1911. Within 6 months, he submitted a petition for mercy.
There are so many journalists and yet not a single one can 'Fact-Check' this claim.

The Indian Media is a tragedy.

The last moments of Bhagat Singh. #Thread

Bhagat Singh's lawyer, Pran Nath Mehta, managed to meet him two hours before the hanging.

He welcomed Mehta with a broad smile in cell No. 14 and asked him whether he had brought him the book he had asked for: 'Lenin's Biography'.
As soon as he was handed the book, Bhagat Singh began reading it as if he was conscious that he did not have much time left.

Pacing up and down his cell like a caged lion in Lahore Central Jail, Bhagat Singh smiled as he read the opening pages of Lenin's book.
Pran Nath Mehta asked Bhagat Singh if he had any last message for the nation.

Without taking his eyes off the book, Bhagat Singh said, "Just the two messages. Down with Imperialism and Long Live the Revolution!"

Sep 28: The man who shook the British crown was born 114 years ago today.

His slogan 'Inquilab Zindabad' is an anti-national word today. Bhagat Singh once beautifully explained the meaning of Inquilab Zindabad to a journalist.

A #Thread on his quotes about Caste & Religion.
Bhagat Singh explains the meaning he tried to convey by the phrase 'Inquilab Zindabad' to the editor of the Modern Review.

- The Tribune (December 24, 1929)

Below are the quotes from 'Why I am an Atheist'
"You, the Hindus, Let me say it plainly that your ancestors were shrewd people. They were always in search of petty hoaxes to play upon people and snatch from them the power of Reason."

- Bhagat Singh (Why I am an Atheist)

Bhagat Singh was very vocal against Brahmanism.

PLZ NOTE: Legendary Bhagat Singh was born on 28th September, not 27th September.

The Birth anniversary is tomorrow. The date in Wikipedia is wrong and so many news channels today are showing the wrong date.
