1. The Mappilas were the Muslim tenants inhabiting the Malabar region, where most of the landlords were Hindus. The Mappilas had expressed their resentment against the oppression by the landlords during the nineteenth century also. Thus, it was a class struggle. However, what began as an anti-government and anti-landlord affair acquired communal overtones. The communalisation of the rebellion completed the isolation of the Mappilas from the Khilafat-Non-Cooperation Movement. By December 1921, all resistance had come to a stop. 2.
