Anger brewing against Muziris project
Left bid to rewrite Kerala history

—SC

MUZIRI Patanam or Muziris also known as ‘Pazhnam’ is an ancient port of Kerala near Kodungallur, in present Kochi-Thrissur districts. It is linked to Thiruvanchikulam, an ancient Shiva Temple, also near Kodungallur. Patanam is closely related with the seat of Chera Kings and finds mention in Manimekalai, Silapadikaram of Sangam Tamil literature.

Excavations, done few years ago at Kodungallur, revealed the rich Hindu culture and traditions of Muziri Patanam and as a capital of Chera Kings.

Informations now emerging, point to a deep-rooted conspiracy hatched by the earlier CPM regime and the left historians of Kerala Council of Historic Research (KCHR) like Dr KN Panicker and Dr Cherian, to rewrite the history of Kerala, denying any role to the Hindus.

The excavations at Kodungallu which clearly showcased the Hindu way of life during Sangam period have been buried and the Muziris port town have been shifted to nearby Paravur.

Crores from Kerala and Rs 60 crores from central government are being planned with Paravur as the focal area. The left game plan is to convert it into a centre of multi culturalism where Romans, Jews, Christians, Muslims and Babylonians settled. There is no role for Hindus. Only Vanvasis have been included.

Angered by these developments, the Hindus have formed a Muziris Heritage Protection Council and have called a meeting at Kochi on August 4, which will discuss the dangerous developments in length.

Shri Nagaswamy (Retd Director-ASI-Kerala), Dr Rajendran (UGC Prof of Archaeology, Kerala University), Shri Sundara Adiga (Renowned Archaeologist of Mysore), Shri Velayudhan Panikasseri (writer on Maritime Trade), Shri MG Sasibhooshan (historian) and Shri Aravindan Neelakandan (historian of Tamil Nadu) will present papers on the issue.

The Protection Council says this is a calculated conspiracy to alter the Hindu history of Kerala. Despite excavations going on in Kodungullur, since 1940, the KN Panicker led KCHR buried the finds. The excavations are now being done in a hush-hush manner by handpicked left fellow-travellers, who are non-profession.
