Karnataka to remove Tipu lesson from textbooks: CM

Oct 30, 2019 17:37 IST

The BJP government in Karnataka would remove the lesson on the 18th century Mysore ruler Tipu Sultan from school history books as he was a tyrant and prosecuted the Hindus, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa said on Wednesday. The opposition Congress, however, opposed the move to ban Tipu's lesson in school history books and discontinuing Tipu Jayanti celebrations across the state. State Education Minister Suresh Kumar has directed the Karnataka textbook society managing director to study an appeal by BJP's Madikeri legislator Appachu Ranjan for removing the lesson on Tipu from history books in schools.
