"A tribute to the first freedom fighter of India on his birth anniversary", the grandson of Dr BR Ambedkar wrote.

Another Twitter user wrote: "Tipu Sultan was the only Indian ruler who understood the dangers the British posed to India, and fought four wars to oust them from India - in that sense he could be called the first freedom fighter in the subcontinent".

One user posted a quote attributed to Tipu Sultan: "One day's life of a lion is preferable to hundred years of a jackal".

Many Twitter users also hailed his liking for advanced technology.

"Tipu Sultan was fascinated by science & technology, got gun-makers, engineers, clockmakers & other experts from France to Mysore, then set up a manufacturing of bronze cannons, ammunition & muskets to 'Make in Mysore'. Basically the first who worked for MakeinIndia", (sic) wrote one user.

Make in India is a type of Swadeshi movement covering 25 sectors of the Indian economy. It was launched by the Government of India on 25 September 2014 to encourage companies to manufacture their products in India and enthuse with dedicated investments into manufacturing.
