The Munnokka Samudaya Aikya Munnani (Forward Community United Front) will not accept the attempt to whitewash Wariamkunnath Kunhahammed Haji, known as the most brutal of the Mappila rebels, as a freedom fighter. The inclusion of Wariamkunnan in the list of freedom fighters sent by the Director of Public Instruction to senior officials in the Department of Education can be seen as a challenge to history. The Indian Council of Historical Research has made it clear that the Mappila rebels cannot be recognized as freedom fighters.
The front leaders Aravindaksha Kurup, Suresh Babu, Dr Dinesh Kartha, Narayanan Unni and Satish Kumar demanded that the education department immediately remove Wariamkunnan from the list of freedom fighters.
