The Genocide of Hindus in Malabar,1921.

The story goes back to 1921, there were agitations all over Bharat due to Khilafat Movement, the Muslims of Bharat were protesting against the British to restore the Caliph of Ottoman caliphate after the world war 1.
But, when the British started to take action against these protestors, the course of the Khilafat movement changed from pressurizing the British to killing thousands of Hindus in a gruesome manner. The worst of this was seen in the Malabar district of Kerala.
The Moplah Muslims of Malabars who were a part of the Khilafat moment killed 100s of Hindus in August 1921. But what was the reason? But before getting to this let us see the history of these Moplah Muslims.
Right from the time of 1836 to 1920, the Moplahs had terrorized the Hindus of the Malabar region, they had abducted women, kidnapped children, beheaded men and also had forcibly converted them to Islam.
It was their will to establish an Islamic state in the Malabar region, these Moplahs were even praised by the Maulavi for their acts against Hindus.
Examples of these acts were told to many people and were instructed to follow the same things to establish an Islamic state in various parts of Bharat.
In 1921,100s of huts where Hindus resided were set ablaze by these religious fanatics, women, children, and men were torched to death.
This incident created terror in the minds of Hindus and thousands of them fled from this region.
On the fateful morning of 24th august 1921, a mob of 4000 Moplahs gathered on a hill near Tuvur village in Kerala, their leader was chembrasseri thangal, an Islamic leader leading these Moplahs against the Hindus.
Under a tree, 40 men forcibly kneeled on their knees, hands, and legs tied who were to be punished for their crimes. But what was their crime? Their crime was, they were Hindus and they were the ones who protested against these barbaric acts of Moplahs.
In front of this mob, their crimes were read out loud and one by one they were killed, the first three were shot to death, but the death of the remaining 37 people was extremely horrific. They were beheaded and thrown inside a well.
The men who were mortally wounded survived for three days inside the well, the well had rocks at its bottom and there were no means to climb up whatsoever.
Their cry for help was audible to people passing the well but they did not dare to help them as they would suffer the same fate.
This incident terrorized the entire Malabar region. At this time a Moplah Islamic leader named Variyan Kunnathu Kunjahammed Haji took into his hands to spread the reign of terror.
His men killed thousands of Hindus, raped women, killed children, and forcibly converted Hindus. These demons didn't even spare pregnant women, they were stabbed in the stomach and their bodies were left on the roads to rot.
Thousands of Hindus fled after these incidents taking refuge in the neighboring regions. Nearly 2600 Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam.
Although these incidents were horrific, more horrific was the politics that followed. Gandhiji didn't even condemn this act and gave a very simple statement saying 'MY MUSLIM BROTHERS HAVE GONE MAD'.
The champion of non-violence didn't utter a single word against these atrocities.
Dr. B.R.Ambedkar in his book 'Pakistan or Partition of India' has condemned these atrocities as "INHUMAN UNCONTROLLED SAVAGERY".
Later on Annie Besant condemning these acts said,"Malabar has taught us what Islamic rule means and we donot want to see another specimen of Khilafat Raj in India."
Later in 1957, when the Communist Government came into power in Kerala,the then chief minister E. M. S. Namboodiripad started pension to those who took part in these Moplah riots,classifying this act as freedom movement.
later on Arya Samajis took a bold step and converted nearly 2000 Hindus had been forcibly converted to Islam by these moplahs.

The sad part being the historians and scholars termed these riots as rebellion and said that these incidents had nothing to do with religion.
The people who demonize Hindus by stating 2002 Godhra riots now and then for their political benifits,forget these genocides by religious fanatics. We Hindus have suffered a lot and we must not forget what we and our ancestors have been through.
There are number of incidents like these were Hindus were killed for just being Hindus. Forgive but never Forget! Be an unapologetic Hindu! for we have done nothing wrong ! Hold the saffron with Pride and make sure these incidents do not take place again.
