The sad and chequered history of an ancient Hindu Temple in Malaparamba and how Tipu Sultan and his jihadi Muslim army destroyed it in 1794.
127 years later the shattered remnants of this Temple were again savagely attacked in the Moplah Rebellion of 1921. The author describes the heroic role played by Ramasimhan (a rich Moplah Muslim Uneen Sahib who returned from Islam into the fold of Hinduism) in the reconstruction of Mattummal Sri Narasimha Moorthy Temple. The saga of Ramasimhan and his martyrdom for the deathless cause of Hinduism will continue to shine across centuries on the pages of Hindu cultural history, serving as a beacon light of hope, faith and inspiration to the bruised and battered Hindus of India.
Tipu Sultan (Ruler of Mysore from 1786 - 1799) invaded Malabar and Coorg in 1792 and his Islamic depredations continued till 1798. The atrocities let loose by him and his jihadi army against the Hindus of Malabar — the author calls it HINDU HOLOCAUST — have become an inseparable and deathless part of the abiding cultural consciousness and collective memory of the race among the Hindus of Kerala today. These thoughts and memories about the brutal persecution of the Hindus of Malabar and the organized jihadi destruction of innumerable Hindu Temples in Malabar by Tipu and his army in the 18th century can never be erased on confiscated by any government today, either by the Islamic Marxist Government of Kerala or the Islamic / Christian UPA Government of India.
In this four-part article Sri V. Sundaram describes in graphic detail the destruction of Mattummal Sri Narasimhamoorthy Temple at Malaparamba, near Angadipuram, in Malappuram District during TIPU SULTAN’S JIHAD AGAINST THE HINDUS OF MALABAR; the heroic role played by Sri Ramasimhan and his family in rebuilding the Temple; the dastardly mass murder at midnight of Ramasimhan along with his family and retainers in their sleep by a pack of blood-thirsty Muslim Moplah marauders and the repeat destruction of that temple at the hands of those frenzied savages on 17 August, 1947. Tipu Sultan and his Muslim army had destroyed the major portions of this Temple in 1794. What ever remains/ruins that remained unmolested at the site were totally destroyed by the Moplah Muslim marauders during the Moplah Rebellion in 1921. Sri Sundarma also narrates the treacherous efforts of the Communist-Congress combine to aid and assist the Moplah Muslim murderers of unarmed Hindus in a cold, calculated, cynical and inhuman pursuit of oppressive, manipulative minority vote-bank politics after 15 August, 1947 till date.
To help the Sri Narasimhamoorthy Trust in its reconstruction efforts, a galaxy of Hindu spiritual luminaries and leaders formed a large Reconstruction Assistance Committee on 30 November, 2007. On 16 January, 2008, Kanipayyur Krishnan Namboothiri, a renowned expert on tachchu-shastra and the art of temple building, in the presence of a large gathering of devout Hindus laid the foundation of the main temple for Malaparamba Matummal Sri Narasimhamoorthy. The Temple Trust has recently created a website http://www.malaparamba-narasimhamoorthy.org/. This site is worth a visit. The reconstruction of Mattummal Sri Narasimha Moorthy Temple should not be viewed has a mere temple building activity. This humungous sacred effort has brought together not only the people of Malappuram, but also the concerned Hindus in all other parts of Kerala and the rest of India. There is no doubt that with this reconstruction, Mattumal Sri Narasimhamoorthy Temple would become a formidable Hindu religious and social organisation that can help to organise and invigorate the Hindus and revitalize Sanatana Dharma. The clarion call of the Temple Trust to all the Hindus of Malappuram, Kerala and the rest of India is this: ‘Hindus of Malappuram, Kerala and India unite! You have nothing to lose bur your pseudo-secular – Congress, Communist, Islamic, Christian – chains!!’
