Moplah massacre tells of forceful conversion, atrocities against Hindus and fanaticism that was aided by the Congress !
The Moplah Muslim community of Malabar had, for 100 years, indulged in bouts of murderous rage against Kafirs. The genocide of Hindus in August-September 1921 was different because the Muslims thought they would oust the British and establish an Islamic State. The Hindus had to be massacred for it because Kafirs have no place in the ‘land of the pure’.
In the book ‘The Moplah Rebellion, 1921’ written by Diwan Bahadur C Gopalan, who was the Deputy Collector of Calicut, Malabar, there is a detailed account of what transpired that fateful day of 25th September. On Page 56 of the book, Gopalan writes :
There is a well situated about midway between Tuvur and Karuvarakundu on the slope of a bare hillock. Here the Chembrasseri Tangal’s followers about 4,000 in number from the neighbouring amsoms held a great meeting. The Tangal sat in the shadow of a small tree. More than 40 Hindus were caught by the rebels and taken to the Tangal with their hands tied behind their back.
They were charged with the crime of helping the military against the rebels. Thirty-eight were condemned to death. Three are said to have been shot and the rest taken one by one to the well. Just at the brink, there is a small tree. The executioner stood here and after cutting the neck with his sword pushed the body into the well.
Many of the people who were thus thrown in were not dead. But escape was impossible. The sides of the well are cut in hard laterite rock and there are no steps. It is said that some people were crying out from the well even on the third day of the massacre. They must have died a peculiarly horrible death.
At the time when this massacre was perpetrated, it was the rainy season and there was some water in the well, but now it is dry. And any visitor can have a look at the gruesome sight. The bottom is entirely filled with human bones. Pundit Rishi Ram, the Arya Samaj Missionary, who was standing by my side counted 30 skulls. One skull deserves particular mention.
‘It is still seen divided neatly into two halves. This is said to be the skull of an old man named Kumara Panikkar, whose head was slowly cut into two halves by means of a saw.’
In this book, Gopalan has chronicled the paltry information available. There is still hardly an official, true account of what transpired during the Moplah genocide of Hindus. Most accounts are watered down by Left historians.
However, the authentic accounts of the Moplah massacre that exist tell an incredibly different tale. Of forceful conversion, atrocities against Hindu men, women and even children and fanaticism that was aided by the support of Congress leaders, most prominently, MK Gandhi.
