Case against historian for 'promoting enmity'

Bangalore, Nov 29, 2012, DHNS:

The Bangalore City police have registered a case against noted historian M Chidananda Murthy on the charges of promoting enmity between different groups, through his remarks on Tipu Sultan recently.

He has been charged under IPC Section 153 (A) for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc.

Addressing a press conference on November 21, he had opposed the naming of the minority university coming up at Srirangapatna after Tipu Sultan.

At the meeting, he had called Tipu a communal king who oppressed the Hindus.
Chidananda Murthy also reiterated his comments in his interview to a Kannada daily on November 25.

Angered by his comments, Tipu Sultan Samyukta Ranga Convenor Sardar Ahmed Quereshi had filed a complaint at the Cubbon Park police station.
