The Malabar rebellion, also known popularly as the Moplah rebellion, was an armed revolt staged by the Mappila Muslims of Kerala against the British authorities and their Hindu landlords in 1921. The six-month-long rebellion is often perceived to be one of the first cases of nationalist uprisings in Southern India. It occurred within the broader spectrum of the Khilafat/Non-cooperation movement led by Mahatma Gandhi. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Cancel the best answer Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
