The atrocities on Hindus in Malabar which started with the invasions of the region by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan, reached their climax in August, 1921. Under the guise of the anti-British Khilafat agitation, Maplahs of Malabar unleashed a reign of terror on the minority Hindus of the region. Loot, arson, rape, murder and force conversions went on for months before the British army suppressed the riots with an iron fist.
However, the persecution of the Hindus of Malabar did not end with that. The way Malabar Hindu genocide has been documented by the leftist historians of Independent India is a tragedy in itself. It is no less than a continuation of the atrocities unleashed by the Maplah. The leftist establishment expended every resource at its disposal to turn the victims into aggressors and aggressors into freedom fighters.
The story of the Malabar Hindu genocide and the perversion of that chapter of Indian history by the leftist establishment is relevant to the current times when the same gang of Hinduphobes is once again manipulate the narrative surrounding the 2020 riots in Delhi unleashed by trying to portray the Hindu victims as aggressors.
