Mangalore catholic history ..

In fact, the Mangalore catholics have been the christians in India who have been persecuted more than any other christian denominations in India. Tippu Sultan and his expeditions to Srirengapattanam will for ever remain some of the most blotted in Indian Christian history. Having escaped the Portuguese from Goa, after conversion into Catholic faith, they were treated badly by Tippu Sultan with so much of contempt and disdain, as they had helped The British to defeat his father Hyder and Portuguese in the Great Anglo Mysore wars. Finally in the fourth Anglo Mysore war, Tippu was killed and thus ended the cruel reign of Tippu against Christians.

Since i have Catholic friends from Mangalore, I can actually feel for them more than any one else.
