Islamic organisation wants to carve Muslim-majority ‘Malabar’ out of Kerala, threatens to start Telangana-like agitation

Taking to Facebook, Anwar Sadiq Faisi said calling for the creation of a new 'Malabar state' out of Kerala. According to Faisi, Kozhikode should be the state capital of the newly carved Malabar state.

The Samasta Kerala Sunni Students’ Federation (SKSSF), a students’ organisation affiliated to radical Islamist organisation Samastha in Kerala, has demanded a new Muslim majority ‘Malabar state’ be carved out from Kerala.

As per reports, a massive controversy has now erupted after SKSSF’s mouthpiece – Satyadhara’s editor Anwar Sadiq Faisi demanded the creation of a new state, ‘Malabar’, by carving Muslim dominated areas of the Malabar region out of Kerala. He also warned of starting a ‘Telangana-style’ agitation if their demands are not met.

Taking to Facebook, Anwar Sadiq Faisi called for the creation of a new ‘Malabar state’ out of Kerala. According to Faisi, Kozhikode should be the state capital of the newly carved Malabar state. This demand is due to the Muslim majority in the Malabar region.

The SKSSF was formed in 1989 and is known for its fundamental views on Islam’s religious aspects. It is well known for always politically backing the Muslim League.

Citing a newspaper advertisement of the Kerala government that showed Pinarayi Vijayan’s government’s alleged excellence in handling the health crisis, Anwar Faisi said that the Kerala government had shown its disregard towards Malabar. He claimed that the Kerala government’s advertisement is the latest example of the discrimination shown towards the Muslim majority region.

“While ten thousand are wandering in Malabar without getting seats for plus two, thousands of seats are left without any students in Thiruvanathapuram and Kochi. Private buses in Malabar and KSRTC buses in the south are being monopolized. This discrimination can be seen in many such things,” Faisi said in his post.

Kerala govt neglecting Muslim-majority northern regions, says Faisi

He also claimed that the Kerala government gives importance to Southern-region of the state despite the northern Malabar region having the most assembly seats. The people in Malabar should take to the streets like Telangana to demand ‘Malabar State’ and Kozhikode as its capital, said Anwar Faisi in his post.

“In the south, too, this discrimination has been going on since the formation of the capital and the secretariat in a very remote part of the state, where even the Malayalam language was taken to a border that gave way to Tamil,” the Islamist said.

He also demanded the Kerala government to implement a special package for Malabar and asked Kerala Chief Minister to stay in the region for 3 days a week. In his Facebook post, Faisi appealed to all religious-political-cultural associations to stand united for the demand to create a new Malabar state.

Faisi is not the only one who wants a new Malabar state to be carved out of Kerala. It is not just the first time that Muslim organisations in the state are demanding the bifurcation of the Muslim-dominated Malabar region from Kerala. Faisi is the latest entrant to the separatist agenda of Islamists in Kerala. The key demand of the Islamists in Kerala is to seek a separate state of Malabar by carving out areas from districts in North Kerala – Kasaragod, Kannur, Wayanad, Kozhikode, and Malappuram where Muslims are present in substantial numbers.
