The falsification of history by the Marxists begins with altering the name of the event itself to suit their narrative of the event and from there starts whitewashing of ‘crimes’ which in any civilized world would be condemned and not condoned like the Marxists do. They then twist history to portray the events in agreement with that fabricated name thereby history itself. A very good example of this is the so called ‘Moplah Rebellion’.
What’s commonly termed as ‘Moplah Rebellion’ in the popular history books and mainstream narrative is in reality polar opposite of the definition of ‘rebellion’. It is an all out massacre of Hindus in Malabar region by the same Moplah Muslims during the time of Khilafat Movement in Pre-Independence India. Here we would like to bring to your notice that the Khilafat Movement was supported dearly by Mahatma Gandhi and the Congress.
The Ali brothers—Shaukat Ali, Mohammad Ali Jauhar and Abul Kalam Azad had let Gandhi know that if the Afghans succeeded in their invasion of India to wage “holy war” or Jihad, they would fight not just the British, but the Hindus as well. Gandhi agreed to this, and asked Hindus to support the Khilafat Movement, and to submit to the dictates of the Mohammedans in matters of controversy.
Quoting Bhim Rao Ambedkar from his book Pakistan or the Partition of India, “The blood-curdling atrocities committed by the Moplahs in Malabar against the Hindus were indescribable. All over Southern India, a wave of horrified feeling had spread among the Hindus of every shade of opinion, which was intensified when certain Khilafat leaders were so misguided as to pass resolutions of congratulations to the Moplahs on the brave fight they were conducting for the sake of religion. Any person could have said that this was too heavy a price for Hindu-Muslim unity. But Mr. Gandhi was so much obsessed by the necessity of establishing Hindu-Muslim unity that he was prepared to make light of the doings of the Moplahs and the Khilafats who were congratulating them. He spoke of the Moplahs as the ‘brave God-fearing Moplahs’ who were fighting for what they consider as religion and in a manner which they consider as religious”.
The Moplah Muslims of the Malabar region waged Jihad against the helpless and hapless Hindus which was as bloody a war against ‘kafirs’ as could be. It was devoid of any regret, guilt or pity, waged with the sole intention of making the ‘kafirs’ submit to the might and authority of allah. It was, in essence, ethnic cleansing, similar to the one that displaced Hindus from Kashmir in the 90s.
The advocates of dialectical materialism, who explain everything from the lens of materialism, concocted a cock-and-bull story to pin-point the causes in material factors. The remorseless Jihad against Hindus was portrayed as the struggle of landless Muslims against the Hindu landlords who had been oppressing Muslim peasants for centuries. According to Marxists the reason of all conflicts is the oppression of the proletariat by the bourgeoisie. For the Marxists, It was the classical case of class struggle in which the proletariat was rising against the bourgeois forces.
During the period 1821-1921, there were 51 militant outbreaks of the Mappilas. These were not due to class conflict or feudal reasons, but were waged as a part of Jihad against both–British Christians and Hindu landlords (jenmis).
Quoting hindugenocide.com, “The total figure of at least 2,500 Hindus brutally slaughtered, and another 2500 forcibly converted, is quoted in several accounts. Other brutalities include violating the modesty of women, butchering children, and forcing Hindus into submission and death. These atrocities were reported in international news dailies and accounts of the district magistrates and other police officials.”
Rebellion is defined as ‘a fight against the authority’ but in this case, who was the authority? British were ruling Bharat and the attack against the British troops were carried out by Muslims when they intervened to stop the massacre of Hindus, and the rumor broke out that a mosque has been destroyed by the British troops. In Marxist historiography though, bourgeois is always in power and the killing of bourgeois is moral duty of proletariat in class struggle. The wave of violence, murder, rape and forcible conversion of Hindus continued unabated despite efforts of the British government. Ali Musliyar who was one of the chief architects of this massacre of Hindus is regarded as a freedom fighter and rebel leader, which is a classic case of whitewashing the crimes of a Jihadi who also happened to be a Sufi of Qadiriyya order.
In one of our previous articles we pointed out a post from the Facebook wall of one of the ‘highlighted’ protestors from Jamia Millia Islamia — Ladeeda Sakhaloon where she was idolising the likes of Ali Musliyar, the man directly responsible for the 1921-22 Moplah Riots, for which he was sentenced to death.
A rebellion and massacre are poles apart and we need to be conscious of this difference. Therefore, whenever we are describing the violence against Hindus in Malabar, which took place in 1921, we must call it ‘Moplah Massacre of Hindus’ and not term it Moplah Rebellion which is legitimizing and whitewashing the crime of Jihad. The quest for correct history begins with correct terminology of events.
