Malabar’s Agony – Mannur Holocaust

published on September 13, 2011

While ‘Secular Kerala’ spits on the face of Hindus by celeberating the anniversary of 1921’s  Hindu Masssacre by Jihadis by glorifying those fanatics as freedom fighters, HK in this series  attempts to publish true facts and incidents which has been almost wiped out from our History books by vested interests.
The hardcore Jihadis who conducted massive killings, torture and conversion of Hindus are projected as freedom fighters by our secular academicians and Marxist historians. Jihadi propaganda machine in the state is in full swing to justify the loot and murder through their publishing houses.

Dedicating this series to the benefit of our current and future generations, so that they will not swallow the state sponsored lies about this Jihad.

Mannur Holocaust ( Nov 8, 1921 )

Kalladithodi and Koormantara are 2 big towns which had arranged watchmen for protection. The attack which usually occured during the night occurred during daytime here. The weapons which were stored at Kalladithodi was seized.  On hearing sounds of gunfire people came out thinking that the army had arrived and were in turn confronted by the rebels. The rebels divided themselves into several groups.  One group went into a killing spree, while the other two groups engaged in  for setting fire to houses and looting. Since the rebels had come in large numbers, the atrocities were also aplenty.

                        The rioters on 8th November 1921 consisted of 500 men and continued their murderous rampage for two whole days.  They went down to the railway at Mannur. Some of them returned by boats. Sixteen boat loaded with men went to Tirurangadi.  Beside men, children and women were also killed in this raid.  After Mannur, the gang set fire to over 100 houses at neighboring Vallikunnu amsam.  The bodies of the slaughtered people were dumped into the river and Kerala Patrika paper reported 40 Hindus killed and a 7 months pregnant lady dead with the dead fetus protruding out of the slit abdomen.

                        The hideous massacre caused exodus of a large number of Hindus from this area.  ‘A’ Company of M.S.P. from Ramanattukara reached on 9th November morning and found houses still burning and saw many horribly mutilated bodies of Hindus. The MSP killed many rebels who had not left with the main party.  Four rebels were arrested by locals while setting fire to a Hindu house, one a Tirurangadi man wearing a Khilafat badge on his fez. This gang had very few guns but all carried war knives and peculiarly shaped clubs.
