Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Tehelka.com I September 2, 2013

In 1770 the Turkish naval establishment was wiped out at the Battle of Çeşme (on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea) by a Russian fleet. (EB, 13/784). In 1799 the Fourth Mysore War took place between Tipu Sultan and the British East India Company at Seringapatam. In this war, Tipu Sultan was killed. When the Governor General, George Harris, heard of the death of Tipu Sultan, he is said to have exclaimed: “Today, India is ours!”

Religion of Peace

The big question on everyone's mind is how to solve the problem of terrorism. On the one hand, the authorities are trying to crush the terror menace through legal action; and on the other hand, reformers are trying to curb it by engaging in condemnation.

Babri Masjid Revisited

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan |  The Speaking Tree | TOI | October 12, 2010
