The Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram brings out two works exposing the Left-Islamist narrative
In the 100th anniversary of Malabar rebellion, the Bharatiya Vichara Kendram, Thiruvananthapuram, on July 26, brought out two books — Beyond Rampage: West Asian Contacts of Malabar and the Khilafat authored by eminent historian BS Harishankar and Mappila Kalapam Ambedkar Adayalapeduthumbol (Mappila rebellion as perceived by Ambedkar) by KC Sudheer Babu – to bust the lies promoted by Left historians and Islamists and put out facts hitherto untold before the public. The Left appropriated the Hindu genocide driven by the economic interests of wealthy Mappilas for ideological and political purposes.
The scholarly work, Beyond Rampage: West Asian Contacts of Malabar and the Khilafat, covers multiple issues such as the advent of colonialism in India with Portuguese, conflicts with Mappila Muslims in West Coast, issue of anti-Christian Fatwas by Muslim priests, Tipu’s invasion of Malabar, alliance with French colonialism , exodus of Hindus from Malabar, advent of British colonial power, Khilafat and Hagia Sophia Cathedral issue in 1920, and Sunni Mappilla uprising in 1921 and Hindu massacre.
According to Harishankar, it was not the landless peasant and tenant Sunni Mappilas who caused the 1921 riots, but a wealthy and powerful timber lobby of Mappilas who organized the violence. The work discusses the West Asian connections of Khilafat and the Sunni Mappilas as a powerful economic community in south India. The book was released by Professor Abdul Salaam, the former Vice-Chancellor of Calicut University, Kerala.
R Sanjayan, Director, Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram, and others spoke at the function.
