Short Notes on the features of Pazhassi Revolt of Malabar

ADVERTISEMENTS:

The establishment of British supremacy in Malabar, after the Treaty of Seringapattam (1792) did not go unchanged by feudal chieftains and patriotic elements of the population. The treaty brought the kingdoms of the Zamorin katallix, Kottayam and Palghat into the hands of the British authorities, but not Wynad. But a considerable portion of the population resented Company rule. The earliest of the resistance movements was by some members of the family of the Zamorin of Calicut.

After the defeat of Tipu Sultan in 1792, the Patinjare Kovilagom Rajas of the Zamorin’s family insisted on the restoration of all their territories. But this demand was rejected by the English East India Company. Consequently the members of this family asserted their independence and mobilised the people in rebellion against the British. The supravisor (Supervisor) of Malabar announced a reward of Rs. 5000 for the capture of the rebel princes. But they escaped to Travancore. However the revolt did not let out here.
