Mangaluru, (DHNS): The Kanara Christians, a city-based group opposing Tipu Jayanti, has planned a movie to highlight the alleged tyranny of Tipu Sultan to those in coastal areas.

Talking to reporters here on Thursday, Robert Rosario, a representative of Kanara Chistians, said the group has been opposing Tipu Jayanti for the last two years as there were historical facts showing the tyranny by Tipu Sultan on Christians.

As the State government was going ahead with the programme, it has been decided to come out with a film. Mr. Rosario said that the group has collected matters on Tipu Sultan’s alleged atrocities on Christians. “We can come out with two or three films,” he said and added that the group would go for crowdfunding for the project. “We want the younger generation to know of what our forefathers have suffered during Tipu’s rule,” he said.

Asked about the silence of Christian religious heads on Tipu Jayanti, Mr. Rosario said he too was surprised. “Our religious heads seem to be under the influence of Congress,” he said.
