Tipu Sultan Jayanti: Protesters hurl stones at bus, as court refuse to stay on celebration

Miscreants hurled stones at a Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation bus during a protest against Tipu Jayanti celebrations in Madikeri on Friday. Ahead of Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebrations, the district administration has imposed Section 144 and security has been heightened to maintain law and order in the district. On Tuesday, the Karnataka High Court refused to stay the Tipu Sultan birth anniversary celebrations on November 10. Also, the court issued a notice to the government to raise objections in four weeks on the contention that the day must never be celebrated. This year also, the Siddaramaiah-led government is all set to celebrate Tipu Jayanti despite widespread protests and violence that had marred celebrations in the last two years.
