“Tipu should not be referred to as a “hero” because he converted thousands of Hindus to Islam by force, demolished temples and made Persian the official language of the state of Mysore, replacing Kannada, during his rule in the 18th century. Tipu minted coins in Persian. A Persian inscription on one of Tipu’s swords spoke of his intentions to “kill those who did not respect his religion”
