Prajna Pravah All India Convenor J Nandakumar has called for a probe into the mysterious death of Malayalam poet Kumaranasan to check whether it was a planned murder for exposing the Malabar Hindu Massacre. Kumaranasan had written a poem titled ‘Durravastha’ in Malayalam that had exposed the cruelty committed by Jihadis during the Anti-Hindu massacre of 1921. J Nandakumar was speaking at a program organised by Janam TV on the topic ‘Malabar Islamic State and Hindu genocide’.
Kumaranasan was sent by Sree Narayana guru to understand the situation in Malabar. Seeing the ruthless atrocities committed on Hindus, Kumaranasan wrote a poem that was opposed by the Islamists. Islamists had asked Kumaranasan to withdraw the poem back then, but the post gave them a befitting reply that he wrote what he saw there in Malabar. J Nandakumar also slammed the tendency to whitewash Malabar Hindu Massacre and called this an anti-national act.
There are multiple questions being raised about the death of Kumaranasan. He died on 1924 January 16, when the boat on which he was travelling sunk in the river. Kumaranasan was a good swimmer, but he couldn’t survive. There is historical evidence to suggest that Kumaranasan had received death threats from Islamists of the Malabar region for exposing their Jihadi agenda through his poem.
