Congress MLA Zameer Khan and others brandish swords during Tipu Jayanti celebrations

On Thursday, several Congress leaders were seen brandishing swords during the so-called celebration of Islamic tyrant Tipu Sultan at Bengaluru. The local Congress leaders carried swords in the celebration processions despite the fact that the use of any sort of weapons during religious functions is banned in Karnataka.

According to local media reports, local Congress leaders wielded swords during Tipu Jayanti celebrations on Thursday in Guddadhalli, Kantaka’s capital.

BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan, a Congress MLA from Chamarajpet, addressed the media while holding a sword.

The Congress MLA tweeted pictures from the reported celebration and wrote, “The Mysore Tiger Hazrat Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebrations organized by leaders Nawaz Pasha and others at Guddahalli Auto Station under JJR Nagar Ward of Chamarajpet Assembly Constituency and wished him well. Local Congress leaders were present on this occasion.”

In one of the pictures tweeted by MLA Khan, he can be seen holding a sword.

Notably, Tipu Sultan, the Islamic tyrant has been a subject of contention in the state, particularly since 2015, when the BJP and the Congress fought over the need to commemorate the 18th-century ruler’s birth anniversary.

During the Congress’s rule in 2017, former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah announced the Tipu Jayanti celebration on November 10th.

Ananthkumar Hegde, a former Union minister from Uttara Kannada, condemned the state government’s decision to commemorate Tipu Sultan’s birth anniversary in 2018.

Notably, on July 5, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) raided the Bengaluru office and residence of Congress MLA BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan in Karnataka. Based on the Enforcement Directorate’s report, ACB officials also registered a case against Khan in the disproportionate assets case.
