Jnanpith awardee Girish Karnad on Tuesday said 18th century Mysore ruler Tipu Sultan would have enjoyed the same status as of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji, if he was a Hindu and not a Muslim. Earlier, Karnad demanded the State and Central governments to rename Bengaluru airport after Tipu Sultan. He said injustice was done to Tipu Sultan. Furore over his remarks, BJP is planning to stage protest against Karnad.
