Remembering the sacrifices of Ramasimhan and family

via HK Correspondent published on August 1, 2007

Today (02-08-2007 ) is  the 60th death anniversary of Shri Ramasimhan and his family who gave up their lives for Kerala’s Hindu society


HINDUS of the old generation in Malabar still remember the day when Ramasimhan along with his brother Dayasimhan, his wife Kamala Antharjanam (who was pregnant) and servant Raju Ayyer were brutally murdered by the forefathers of present Islamic terrorists of Kerala.


 


Hindus of Velluvanad and Eranad (today’s Malappuram and Palakkad districts) did not dare to open their house doors and shops for the next three days. Only a few RSS swayamsevaks of Palakkad district were bold enough to conduct a protest march.   


 


Ramasimhan and his family were brutally murdered at 2am on 2nd August 1947. No one came forward to take over their dead bodies and conduct the last rituals. The bodies were loaded on to a handcart used for transporting goods and brought to Kulirmala near Perinthalmanna where they were buried like dogs and cats by some unknown people. 


 


Who was Ramasimhan?


 


Ramasimhan was a Muslim who converted to Hinduism. He was attracted towards Hinduism and changed his name from Unnian Sahib to Ramasimhan. He sent his both children to Arya Samaj School in Delhi. He tried to organize Hindus of the area and took the initiative to revive the Maalaparambu temple whose presiding deity was Narasimha Moorthy. But Islamic terrorists destroyed the temple two weeks after murdering Ramasimhan and his family.

The Hindus could not protect the Narasimha Moorthy temple at that time. But after a long legal battle, the destroyed temple was handed over to Hindus in 1999. A temple charitable trust formed by P.Kuttikrishnan Nair and C.P.Janardhanan led the legal fight. All efforts are underway to construct a temple on the same site in remembrance of Ramasimhan.



Ramasimhan sacrificed his life for the Kerala’s Hindu society but unfortunately most Hindus of Kerala have not learnt any lesson from Islam’s brutal history. Even today, ‘secular’ historians are portraying the mass massacre of Hindus by fanatic Muslims during the Khilafat Movement (launched by none other than the so-called father of the nation) as Independence struggle and Islamic invaders as our saviours!


 


We appeal to all Hindu brothers and sister to pray silently for one minute today for the peace of the souls of Ramasimhan and his family who sacrificed their lives for our Dharma.
