The Moplah Rebellion (also known as the "Moplah Riots", "Maappila Lahala" in Malayalam) was a British-Muslim and Hindu-Muslim conflict or Janmi - Kudian conflict in Kerala that occurred in 1921.This is now considered as a part of Indian Independence Movement. During the early months of 1921, multiple events including the Khilafat movement and the Karachi resolution fueled the fires of rebellion amongst the MoplahMuslim community along with their fellow low caste Hindus. This was considered as a rebellion against rich landlords . A rumour spread amongst the Moplahs that the British rule had ended and the Islamic Caliphate had been re-established at Delhi.
