Pumpwell termed Tipu Sultan a tyrant of a leader, who has massacred thousands of Hindus, and thus felt it is a shame to practice ‘mangalarati’ ritual in his name. He also urged the Endowment Department to replace the word salam which projects a feeling of slavery.
The ritual has been performed at the temple at 8.00pm everyday to mark Tipu Sultan’s visit to the temple.
