Calling it a "shameful event" which supposedly glorifies a "brutal killer" and "mass rapist", Hedge clearly conveyed to the state government that his name should be not be included on the list of invitees for Tipu Jayanti celebrations.

BJP workers who took part in anti-Tipu Jayanti protests in Karnataka's Hubli and Kodagu today were detained by police in both places, reported news agency ANI.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said that the Congress-led government is anxious about Tipu Sultan instead of the state's public. Stating that Tipu can be an ideal ruler to only inhuman and cruel rulers and administrators, the MP maintained that Tipu can never be a model to a civilian society.

#The development comes after the Karnataka High Court struck down a petition to restrict Tipu Jayanti celebrations this year.

BJP and other outfits, which are opposing the celebrations, will observe it as a Black Day. "Those who try to violate the orders would be dealt with strictly".

Meanwhile, thousands of police personnel will be deployed across the state, especially in 10 districts where trouble was expected. Senior IPS officers will man these districts. Previous year celebrations were rather peaceful, although protests continued with a lot of security in place. They will ask residents not to pay heed to rumours and circulate any sensitive message without verifying its authenticity. CCTV cameras have been also installed at violence-prone areas, he added. Prohibitory orders to be in place until Saturday 6 am.
