Dividing Kerala? Muslim Youth League seeks formation of Muslim majority state.

published on August 1, 2013
The clamour for bifurcation of states has now begun on native soil, with Muslim Youth League seeking division of Kerala. They have sought the formation of a new state Malabar, with Kozhikode as the capital city. The Malappuram district committee plans to approach the Muslim League with this demand.

According to sources, the Youth League has sought “the formation of a new state which will include 7 districts, right from Thrissur, along with the inclusion of Mahi and the Nilagiri district of Tamil Nadu.”

The reason cited for the demand for a new state is that “it will be the sole solution” that will “help in the progress of the region”. The Youth League had earlier sought the formation of a new district by dividing Malappuram, with its headquarters at Tirur.

The Youth League is now planning to bring this to the notice of the senior leaders of Muslim League.

The Youth League seems to be inspired by the division of Andhra Pradesh, leading to the birth of Telangana.
