The Mappila or Malabar Uprising of 1921 marks a watershed in 20th Century Indian history.
Rather than being viewed as a saga of great sacrifice and an unparalleled feat in India’s freedom struggle, elements within the majority community have, over the last hundred years, tried to demonize the event as being anti-Hindu.
This episode attempts to portray the struggle of the Mappilas in its correct perspective. Empirical evidence from primary sources is relied upon to clear the calumny levelled against the courageous sons of India.
Episode 2 will go into more details.
