Comment posted on Margam Kali – History, Theme, Early References and Modern Developments by Admin
Whoever has written the third theory in Wikipedia doesn’t know the Tekkumbhagar (Knayana) history especially after 16th century. These are not dark periods. In almost all the history books which I have read (written by Tekkumbhagar), I could see that they conveniently ignore this period. Most of the recent books I have read so far concentrate on re constructing past by including what ever they can find (Jewishness) in early centuries in Mesopotamia and in Malabar before 16th century.
I don’t think there is any truth in this theory. I have never read about any evangelization activities by Tekkumbhagar anytime. Almost everyone knows what Tekkumbhagar priests do even today. I have already mentioned about the initiatives of 21st century regarding Margam Kali and please take the 3rd theory in Wikipedia as part of another creative writing till somebody can give prove otherwise.
