Malappuram is one of the northern districts of Kerala state in India. It was formed on June 16, 1969. Malappuram was part of old British Malabar before India gaining independence. This district can boast of rich cultural and political heritage. Malappuram is known for national movements such as Khilaphat movement and Malabar Rebellion, in which the common man struggled against feudalism and colonialism alike. Though there were occasional religious overtones associated with such movements, many historians acknowledge them as part of Indian Independence Struggle
