Fact 1 : Pazhayangadi Mosque was built in the 15th century. (Over 500 years ago).

Fact 2 : Zamorin of Calicut (hereditary title of the Hindu monarch) ruled over Malabar for over 800 years till the arrival of Hyder Ali from Mysore in 1760's.

Another Fake News.
Though predominantly a Hindu culture, the Zamorin’s kingdom was very much accessible to the influence of western/Eastern culture, for its mould was multi-cultural. From the historical times it had accepted the foreign elements of the Jews, Arabs, Chinese & other western cultures.
In the Kingdom of Zamorin, a historian could find the synthesis of indigenous and foreign elements.

New Synagogues, Mosques and Syro –Malabar Churches were built. It was a multicultural society.
The biggest enemy of Zamorin were not the Jews or Arab Muslims, it was the Portuguese.

Zamorin said that the Portuguese could trade like anyone else, but they would have no special treatment. The Portuguese were humiliated.
Things got ugly when 2nd Portuguese Armada under Pedro Alvares Cabral was attacked by Hindus and Muslims and over 50 Portuguese were killed.

The Portuguese took to the safety of the sea & bombarded Calicut from afar for an entire day, killing over 600 people.
The Portuguese then became allies with Unni Goda Varma against Zamorin.(Hindu King of Cochin).

The Portuguese then began to carry out reprisals against the Jews in Cochin. They burned the Paradesi Synagogue in Mattancherry in 1662.
Then came the Dutch. In 1716, the Dutch, battling the Zamorin, plundered and set fire to the Guruvayoor temple. Many more Temples and Mosques were attacked. Guruvayoor Temple was rebuilt in 1747 AD.

How many Sanghis call the Dutch as Temple destroyers?
I could go on telling more stories but some things never change.

The story of Pazhayangadi Masjid built over Ancient Subrahmanya temple in Kondotty, Malappuram district of Kerala is just a hoax. Anyone who knows a bit of Kerala history will understand it.
