I am starting a thread on Mappila Riots which resulted in massacre of Hindu men, mass rape of women and destruction of Hindu temples in North #Kerala
These events have been erased from History by the Left.
MKGandhi :“My heart bleeds to think that Moplah brethren have gone mad, That they have looted Hindu homes leaving hundreds of men and women homeless. That they have forcibly converted Hindus to Islam and by all these acts they have done an injury.“-Sep 19, 1921 at Trichanapoly
MK Gandhi : “Hindus, instead of running away would have been truly non violent and added luster to their faith and won the friendship of their Mussalman assailants if they had stood bare breast with smiles on their lips and died at their post.”
-‘Young India’ May 29 , 1924
Dr.BRAmbedkar :"Hindus were visited by dire fate at the hands of Moplas. Massacres, forcible conversions, desecration of temples, foul outrages upon women, such as ripping open pregnant women-all the accompaniments of brutal unrestrained barbarism,"-Pakistan or Partition of India
Start of the 'Direct action'
July 24, 1921 : A pro khilafat Ulama was announced at Ponnani. Nrth #Kerala. One Ali Musaliar with 50 – 100 armed volunteers with big khilafat knifes marched under a red flag through the streets of the town shouting slogans.
29th July 1921 : Ali Musaliar conducted special prayers for a Kabul man who had died recently and the proceedings of the Karachi meeting were read in the Mosque.
An (Ezhava)toddy shop keeper’s coolie and a woman were assaulted by Mappilas at Palathingal and toddy pots broken
The attack at Pukkottur.
On August 1, 1921 a large crowd tried to barge into the Pukkottur Kovilagam. They were armed with swords, knifes, spears and several had khilafat badges on their caps. They shouted slogans that they would convert the Kovilagam into a mosque.
The Tanalur attack.
On 3rd August 1921 at Tanalur near Tirur, Ezhava toddy tappers were assaulted by Mappilas. The assault was part of the anti liquor campaign in the name of Khilafat. The Police inspector Rao Bahadur K Neelakantan Nair failed to apprehend the Mopplas.
August 21. 1921, Manjeri : Arukizhayi is a place in Manjeri with a large number of school masters and Lawyers. Hindus predominate. Here every single house was looted. Even known Mappilas changed their attitude and joined the looters.
Sep 20, 1921 : A lady makes a heroic stand
On the night of Sep 20, Eranhikal Veluthedath Kani of Ugrapuram desam, Arikkod Amsom, seeing a gang of Mappilas armed with war knives and sticks advancing to her house, sent away her sister and children to the jungle and stayed home
Sep 20. 1921 : She shut the door of her home on the Mappilas, and when they broke it open she attacked them with a chopper, cutting 4 of them before they overpowered her. She was brutally assaulted and had her jaw broken in two places in addition to other injuries.
Seo 20. 1921 : Though she was left for dead she managed to reach the special party at Chikkod and on 25th September. She was sent to Calicut where she eventually recovered. One Palliyil Krishnan Nair who came to the rescue of the lady was also severely beaten and left for dead.
The well of death at Thuvur ( Sep 25, 1921 )
On 25th Morning nearly 100 houses with the sleeping inhabitants of Tuvvur were surrounded by Mappilla rebels. Residents were ordered out and some escaped. The men had their legs and hands tied.
All the houses were burnt Prisoners were taken to Cherikamalkunnu, then to Pangodu. On the eastern side of the land called Palurkuzhi parambu there is a rock which stands below a small hillock. Some versions attribute the atrocities to V.K. Haji, some to Chembrasseri Thangal.
The well which attained, notoriety is situated midway between Tuvvur and Karuvarakundu on the slope of the bare hillock. The meeting of about 4,000 followers of Chembrasseri Thangal from the neighboring amsoms was presided by the Tangal sitting in the shadow of the small tree
3 people were shot dead; 34 Hindus and 2 Mappilas (who were living with the Hindus) were taken one by one to the well 15 feet away. Just at the brink there is a small tree. The executioner stood here and after slashing the neck with his sword pushed each body into the well
Sep 25
Many of the people thrown in were not dead, but escape was impossible. The sides of the well are hard laterite rock and there were no steps. It is said that cries could be heard from the well even on the 2nd day of the massacre. They must have died a slow horrible death.
