Hi ,

Ezhava is a progressive community in Kerala, who organized under spiritual leader Narayana Guru.

Present-day Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan , opposition kpcc president Mullappally Ramachandran and Indian ruling party bjp president K. Surendran and even Indian foreign minister V. Muraleedharan all are from Ezhava community in Kerala. These are just some examples.

The pic ssb added in the Ezhava page is a defaming pic, maybe some IP vandal pushed you to add the pic.

Instead, you can add this Ezhava/Thiyya girl pic : A Pretty Thiyyar Girl ,19th century British Photograph


The other one you added is defaming the whole community. As the position of a woman shows the community progress and history it would be best to add this historical British photograph.


Thank you.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.39.78.249 (talk) 14:36, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

  1. I don't understand how the first two paragrapghs are relevant to the other three.
  2. I don't understand how the image is defaming, please explain this, as I don't see how it's defaming I cannot justify it's removal.
  3. The other picture has been added, so your 4th paragrapgh is null.

you know in kerala, this open breast system are there for both Nair and even to other castes. You can find many pics in Wikimedia commons regarding the open breast pics. But later after the movement of narayana guru and other social reformers people in kerala changed their way of dressing .
A Mappila (Muslims of kerala) pic : https://english.mathrubhumi.com/polopoly_fs/1.640432.1446294616!/image/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_822/image.jpg

Nair ladies open breast pic : https://www.slideshare.net/GodsOwnKerala/ancient-fashion-of-k-erala , slide 29.
These pics are available in Wikimedia commons , but no one is adding those pics, Because these are the evil practices of everyone in kerala which they changed long back, some 150 years back.
Also the pic you added is just an outlier , some random farming class very poor ezhavas of malabar, does not represent the whole community.
That is why i recommended to remove that pic.

You may use this pic too A Thiyyar Moopan Painting by one of the disciples of Raja Ravivarma — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.39.78.249 (talk) 15:20, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
So, it still isn't a defaming pic.
The advantage of that picture is then that it shows how the poorer members of the comunity live, and if there are other images on commons with open breast women then this enforces the idea. I think it might be beneficial for you to look at WP:CENSOR.
I might be misreading your comment but you seem not to want to include images before this social reform. I have 2 questions:
  1. Why does the article not mention this social reform?
  2. Why shouldn't we include a pre-social reform image?
Because I am currently not following your arguement.

Request to remove the picture ,"The group of Thiyyas in 1905"

The picture depicting a group of Thiyyas is very defaming as the chest portion of the women are not covered....It is explicitly defaming the whole community....If the reason for keeping that picture is to state that Ezhava women did not have the privilege to cover their chests, Then why not keep an image of a Nair woman with her chest uncovered....More than defaming the community the picture is so explicte...I am very sorry if I sound rude, but please consider my request...I am here in Wikipedia just for building an encyclopaedia.... Anyone please reply to my post.... Thanks AARYA SAJAYAN (talk) 12:15, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Defame - "To damage the reputation, character, or good name of (someone) by slander or libel." [1] I fail to see how that image fits the definition. You might also want to take a look at WP:CENSOR. I really don't see why this image should be removed.

SSSB, That image is showing explicit nudity...I mean according to moral that image is showing Ezhava women without covering their chests...It is indeed shameful to see a group of women being portrayed without covering their chests...That image surely defames the Ezhava community....I know Wikipedia is uncensored but there must be moral values...A simple definition does not resolve the issue, The photo is publically exposing two Ezhava women... Isn't that shameful for their families... Please reply for my question..I am very sorry if I sound rude....But SSB I'm trying to convey that the it is publically showing nudity of Ezhava women...Thanks... Please reply.. AARYA SAJAYAN (talk) 13:46, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
They are possing for a photograph, the fact that the women have thier breasts showing (so partial, not full nudity) clearly indicates that they live in a cultural where showing breasts is acceptable. I don't see how this is shameful, I see no evidence that the women, or their families feel any shame, and this issue has nothing to do with morality. I shall re-iterate, they are posing for a photograpgh bare-chested, I therefore see no problem with this.
SSSB (talk) 14:17, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
SSB, They are posing with nudity does not mean that they lived in a society where women could go topless, They were literally forced to not wear an upper cloth..They did not take casual photos,It would be taken by surveyors or other Britishers...Mr I'm from Kerala and I know a lot about Ezhavas... They were forcefully discriminated and suppressed...This photo being publically portrayed hurts the sentiments of the Ezhava community, That is why so many requests are being made to remove that image.... Thanks for Replying to my post.... Please reply... AARYA SAJAYAN (talk) 15:43, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
In order for me to remove this image I want a reliable secondry source that a) verfies that photographers made them remove their tops and b) a source that says that Ezhava women were never topless in day to day life at the time of this photo (c.1905). Because from where I am sitting They are posing with [partial] nudity does not mean that they lived in a society where women could go topless sounds contradictary.
SSSB (talk) 16:03, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks SSB for your genuine replies...I just felt sorry for the Ezhava Community as I live around them.... That is why I felt sad for those Ezhava women who were forced to not cover their chests by the Upper castes... Thanks...I would be very happy if you helped me to clarify my doubts about Wikipedia further ahead on...Thanks AARYA SAJAYAN (talk) 16:29, 17 February 2021 (UTC)


SSB , See the history of Channar_revolt or Maru Marakkal Samaram, and also see the proclamation of 1859 . evident reason for a source that says that Ezhava women were never topless in day to day life at the time of this photo (c.1905). Maybe the British officers or Indian feudal lords that time forced to remove these lower castes' upper body when they posing for a photograph.

Also the photo added in the beginning A Pretty Thiiyar Girl ,19th century British Photograph is not naked it took at 1898.

Do we need to harass the sentiments of ezhava/ thiyyar with such a photograph made on the above-mentioned forced circumstances?

Can you use this pic for showing the ancestral thiyya house architecture in the beginning? It has been used in Malayalam Wikipedia taking it's social and historical significance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.95.173.252 (talk) 09:58, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

  Not done the building is mostly hidden by a tree, it therefore doesn't really show architecture at all. Additionally it doesn't really have a place in an article that doesn't discuss architecture.
SSSB (talk) 10:28, 9 March 2021 (UTC)


Architecture is not described but you can add it in history section . also the building and the ancient tree is important and I it the style of photograph which capture the surrounding ambiance as well. Tharavadu is unique to kerala and each castes has their own like for nair there is 4 kettu , 8 kettu for namboothiris there are manas and for thiyyar there are malikaveed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.95.175.182 (talkcontribs) 08:42, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

you can use this image for thiyya as this is historically important how thiyyar were in ancient British India.Used in Malayalam Wikipedia (https://ml.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%B4%A4%E0%B5%80%E0%B4%AF%E0%B5%BC). you can use this in past occupation or in history


Also the only certain castes in kerala follow Tharavadu system. A Tharavadu is an ancestral home. For Nair castes tharavad will be of Nālukettu and for Nambudiri it is of mana or illam . same way for thiyyar it is of malikaveed architecture type tharavad, which is unique. You can add this image for in culture section side bar showing how a thiyyar tharawad (a thiyyar house) looks.

With regards to the image of the house I will re-iterate what I said before: the building is mostly hidden by a tree, it therefore doesn't really show architecture at all. Additionally it doesn't really have a place in an article that doesn't discuss architecture. You can't see what a thiyyar house looks like because it is almost completely obscured.
As for the first image. Firstly, it's not in the Malayalan wikipedia page linked to this article through wikidata, but I don't speak Malayalan so perhaps they have duplicate articles. If this is the case this is something that you might want to set about resolving. Secondly, for future reference, that is irrelevant. Finally, I will add it, but as the article makes no mention of this relationship it really ought to be added.

Request to Remove the image "Group of Thiyyas 1905"

I am raising this issue once more to convey the following things,

Ezhava women were not covering their chests not due to their wish, they were forced to remove their upper clothing by the Nambudiri Brahmins and other upper castes of Kerala. They were suppressed to the Avarna caste and had to live like slaves.

And if the women wished to cover their chests they had to pay a special tax known as Breast tax (Mulakkaram), Not only the Ezhava women were forced to remove their upper clothing but all castes below the (Nambudiri Brahmins, other Brahmins, Syrian Christians and Mappila Muslims) were forced to remove their upper clothing or had to pay heavy taxes.

Please see following Wikipedia articles, Channar revolt, Nangeli, Breast tax etc for further details, there it is clearly cited by reliable sources.

If Wikipedia is not censored and an image of nude Ezhava women can be added to a Wikipedia article then why is this image, A Nair lady : https://english.mathrubhumi.com/polopoly_fs/1.640431.1446294640!/image/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_822/image.jpg is not included in the article about the Nair's, there in that Article showcases all women with their breasts covered when in reality most Nair women dressed like the one in the above.... Please reply about the topic after going through all the given sources.— Preceding unsigned comment added by AARYA SAJAYAN (talkcontribs) 12:08, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

My initial thought is: if they were legally not allowed to cover thier breasts, the better approach would be to specify that in the caption. To remove the image on those grounds would be WP:CENSORship of history.
SSSB (talk) 12:12, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
AARYA SAJAYAN, you can add the picture of Nair women with bare breasts if there is no copyright issue with the picture. There js nothing wrong with that. Regards Kichu🐘 Discuss 12:30, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
SSSB , See the history of Channar_revolt or Maru Marakkal Samaram, and also see the proclamation of 1859 .
evident reason for a source that says that Ezhava women were never topless in day to day life at the time of this photo (c.1905).

I have included in the caption that they were not allowed to cover thier breasts. I still do not see a reason to remove the image, that would surely be WP:CENSORship.

This is what you said in the above talk section.
I have provided the exact proofs for this.In 1905 thiyyars and ezhavar attained right to wear upper cloths.They attained this from Channar revolt or marumarakkal samaram of 1813 and with the proclamation of 1859.
This pic is of 1905 , 50 years after the proclamation itself. So its clear that these poor family were forced to remove cloths while posing for a new and awsome thing of that time , even the rich of that time could not afford - A photograph .
please see it once again.
Wikipedia Image use policy states :
Moral issues
Not all legally obtained photographs of individuals are acceptable. The following types of image are normally considered unacceptable:
Those that unfairly demean or ridicule the subject
Those that are unfairly obtained
Those that unreasonably intrude into the subject's private or family life



So this photograph is the violation of rules 1 and obviously 2 mentioned above.
Today ISIS have taken many photographs of US Citizens who are forced to pose in naked.
Will that appear in Wikipedia a 100 years later ?
Sameway British officers forced these poor people to remove the cloths while forcing for a photograph (A very expensive luxury of that time) , because in 1905 and from 1859 onwards these people attained rights to wear upper cloths , which is also evident from This pic of 1898 59.89.240.203 (talk)
— Preceding unsigned comment added by Noncreativephotographer (talkcontribs) 12:03, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
I agree that this image violates Those that unfairly demean or ridicule the subject (something which I was not aware of) and I have removed the image.
SSSB (talk) 12:22, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks SSB for removing that image, I am living in Kerala now and I'm coming from a Nambudiri Brahmin family, I'm very aware of the cruelties done by the uppercastes in Kerala, especially in Kerala where the caste scenario was quite disastrous. I felt very sad and sorry for all things those people beared....That is why I wanted that image to be cleared.... Anyways I'm very Thankful. AARYA SAJAYAN (talk) 14:32, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 21 April 2021

Can you use this ancient traditional wedding photo in section History-Legende where they have mentioned the martial origin of the community as Another version of the story says that the king sent eight martial families at the request of a Chera king to quell a civil war that had erupted against him . The traditional wedding attire of thiyyar bridegroom and companions with raised swords in hand shows their martial lineage.

The traditional attire of Thiyyar (Tiyya) Bridegroom and companions who dressed as warriors and holding raised sword in their right hand,in 1912,showing the martial tradition of the community.Thiyyar marriages are called as Mangalam,the corrupt word for Mangalyam.

In the first paragraph "In the present day, the Ezhavas are classified as an Other Backward Class by the Government of India under its system of positive discrimination."

This is already added in apt place in right section under Position in society already.

Request to remove that redundant sentence from the beginning of the article in first para.

  Not done for now: I don't understand your argument. The lead is supposed to summarise the articles content, so this seems perfectly fine to me.
SSSB (talk) 08:41, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

See it is not important which reservation category in government list they belong. The thing is already added in Position in society . If you look other caste pages in India, it is not a convention to add that in the very beginning ...for eg look Yadav,Iyer,Pulayar , Mudaliar or look for any caste pages. It is not a import thing which category in reservation this caste belongs, may be you can add down,here it as been already added.

Also, it is not sourced also.

Request to remove that sentence , as the same sentence is already added down- in which governent reservation category they belong.

Thank you for your input! As mentioned before, the lead summarizes the rest of the article's content, so the OBC description has been included in the lead as a summary of the content in the "Position in society" section. Also, the OBC description is sourced in the "Position in society" section, so it does not have to be sourced in the lead section. Thanks again! P.I. Ellsworth  ed. put'r there 12:52, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

The page is spreading misinformation and is very misleading since it is not talking about ,impotant personalities of ezhavas ,instead is talking about some.imaginary figures from some other community without showing full facts . the page is purposefully trying to spread one sided contents ,and is defaming a community.we would have to move legally ,if it remains uncorrected . so i request the administrators to make suitable changes ,because the details of alumootil family ,etc was removed recently by some fake news pedrators and about some misleading people and instead misinformation is spreading . also this page dont talk about panickers a prominent community inside ezhavas . so in all cases this page is completely spreading one sided misinformations. I hope admins would make proper changes before faving further actions. Worldofknowledge121 (talk) 07:14, 2 July 2021 (UTC)

As pointed out above, this article is about Ezhavas in general (culture, history etc.) Important indivduals are (generally) not within this article's scope, but within the scope of List of Ezhavas instead. If you feel that there is an Ezhava who warrants a mention on this page, please bring up that specific example, as it is not clear which important personalities you wish to add. Likewise, could you specify which specific imaginary figures you are talking about. If you think that this page is missing facts, then please list (with wp:reliable sources) facts you would like to be added to the article.
I completely reject the notion that this page is being deliberately biased or is defaming to the community. You ask Wikipedians to make suitable changes, but I cannot do this unless you tell us specificly and explictly what you would like to see added/removed. Please phrase requests in the form of "change x to y" or "add x to y".
Finally, threating legal action will not get you anywhere.

Ok, I will explain , also I can see many requests to add ezhavar's old Kalari traditions below such as aloomootil etc. Let me explain this firstly , as you are all foreigners, you might not be knowing the Hindu god Ayyappan in Sabarimala. He is a warrior hindu god born in kerala and Sabarimala is one of the top pilgrimage site in India.

This great Hindu god Ayyappa trained and studied warfare from a Thiyya Kalari called Cheerappanchira. Since this great hindu god learned warfare and fighting from this thiyya kalari . it is notable to add in the page , which would be symbolising the Thiyya's kalari traiditon. Already a section is there called Chekavar in the page you can add this pic to it somewhere as an example, since we could not add all historical kalaris in this Wikipedia article but can add this one as an example.


Cheerappan Chira Kalari,Room used by Lord Swamy Ayyappa when he was staying and training in this ancient Thiyyar Chekavar kalari,which trace their origin to Kadathanadu.Malikapurathamma worshipped at Shabarimala is from cheerappanchira

Also please don't change the description of the image.

So all together, under chekavar section or somewhere near History (which says ,There are myths of origin for the Ezhava. According to some Malayalam folk songs like Vadakkan Pattukal[13][which?] and legend, the Ezhavas were the progeny of four bachelors that the king of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) sent to what is now Kerala at the request of the Chera king Bhaskara Ravi Varma, in the 1st century CE) you can add this pic to give a proof of thiyya kalaris

The image caption it is said Cheerappan Chira Kalari, Room used by Lord Swamy Ayyappa when he was staying and training in this ancient Thiyyar Chekavar Kalari, which trace their origin to Kadathanadu. Here the article says Thiyyas were from North Malabar and is sourced, then how it would be a Thiyyar Kalari even the Cheerappanchira article itself says as an Ezhava Tharavad located in Travancore?

From the stream 3:23, it is heard they taught the Kadathanadan Poozhi style to Lord Ayyappa and no mention was made of their origin.

Irrelavant and outdated infirmation

I would like to remove the sentence "Thiyyar dynasties such as the Mannanar existed in Kerala.[1] " from the article since it is very much irrelevant in a page called "ezhava" . Also there is clearly no need of mentioning it in a page called "ezhava" when the page itself mentions that the claim is in dispute also recent govt order have granted separate identity to both communities . So in such a sensitive situation it is extremely unacceptable such writing in a page called "ezhavas". Also i humbly request to unbiased administrators to allow only images and information related to ezhava in an ezhava page, as otherwise it is potraying the community negatively in its own page , which might be rare among wikipedia pages . I hope administrators wouod have understood the sensitivity of such an issue in community ridden indian society and i request administrators to make sure that the content of the page is relatable to the hading "Ezhava " provided . Otherwise it would come under defaming the name of a community . I hope unbiased administrators would take necessary steps by understanding the sensitivity of the issue .

File:A Thiyyar Moopan Painting.jpg
Painting of Thiya Moopan, a village headman from Thiyya caste.

From the section since it is irrelevant in a page called "ezhavas " and i belive that a platform like wikipedia shouldnt be used for political disputes or to defame a community under some fake names . The page mentions about "ezhavas" while the information is about some others . Some people are trying to create unenecesaary controversy or publicity using some other name . The page is about ezhavas and the administrator should make sure that the information given in this page is about ezhavas rather than some others who want to create controversy. I can say this because i am a part of this community and i feel

1. The wikipedia page called " ezhavas " lacks most of the information about ezhavas . And is filled with the content of other community who is trying to defame or create a negative information . 2. In The wikipedia page called "ezhavas" , except one , all of the the images and other contents are created by some other community to gain publicity or to create controversy through the name or description of a community. Also i request the admin to take this into further consideration and only allow pictures or information of ezhava caste in "ezhava "page and dont give others history or others information as ezhavas . Please consider this in future too. The information about ezhavas should only be provided in an ezhava page . Others should create their own page . Redbutterfly0987 (talk) 02:23, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

A platform like Wikipedia shouldn't be used for political disputes (apart from to document them) but I don't see how this image's inclusion contributes to that, or is defamatory.

If you feel that it is inappropriate for Wikipedia to consider Thiyyar and Ezhavas as synomous, please start a WP:SPLIT discussion.
SSSB (talk) 10:51, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

SSSB, I don't know about splitting, but Redbutterfly0987 has a point regarding the images, the images are almost entirely about Thiyyars. It should be addressed. 2409:4073:41A:DC51:7C4F:9AC1:95B3:FB25 (talk) 11:45, 3 July 2021 (UTC)
Splitting is not going to happen and has been discussed here. I think it is quite reasonable for someone to argue the usage of images with unverifiable captions to support the supremacy over the other. The images and their captions might a part of POV work and should be scrutinized. R.COutlander07@talk 12:21, 3 July 2021 (UTC)
That wasn't Redbutterfly0987's point, their point was that Thiyyar and Ezhava are not synonymous, but Wikipedia's stance is that they are. They are just regional names for the same group. Therefore, as far as Wikipedia is concerned, it a Thiyyar image is an Ezhava image. And even if that were not the case, I count 4-3 in favour of Thiyyar, which is as close as you are going to get with 7 images.

High level of vandalism propogating through this page - if allowed like this it will create more issues .

I would like to bring into the notice of admin that high level of vandalism is propogating throuh this page with/ without the support of admins I would like to make the situation a bit clear before you ask for formats . 1. The heading of this page is "Ezhava" ,while the irony is that in the first pragraph itself 2 images are being conpared i dont know the reason for that . and one is the image of a thiyyar girl .and the second one is the image of a farmer ezhava couple while the page dont specifies any separate occupation or race or any distinctiveness of the both . so it is clear that this is a propogamda to create stereotypes or a form.of racism that too when other images of ezhavas are available which is a big cyber offense . Also the same page was criticised for spreading a cropped image of thiyyas as ezhavas that too in the comparing section .later it got removed after heavy critics. 2. Second point . The page is providing an outdated citation and with the help of that is trying to defame both ezhava and one other community . we can clealry say that because we are natives and can defenitely understand the emotional sentiments or consequences that may happen after propogating a big vandalism through a playform like wikipedia 3. If thiyyas and ezhavas are exactly same according to admin then what is the reason for specifically mentioning thiyyas and ezhavas in certain areas? So indont know the intention behind it . But the fact is that the second paragraph itself mentions that thiyyas do claim upper status in hindu heirarchy than others and ironically the page is spreading images of thiyyas only in a page called ezhavas . so if you consider both as exactly same then remove the separate mentions of thiyyas and ezhavas . also the page itself mentions dispute beetween ezhavas and thiyyas. So i would like to know the point in giving lot of thiyya images and one stereotype ed painting of ezhava couple in a page called "ezhava " while the page itself mentions dispute at the end that means all of the images in this page are related to dispute . An eg is given below . https://malayalam.samayam.com/local-news/kannur/thiyyas-are-not-ezhavas-says-theeyyakshemasabha/articleshow/80742726.cms

Also i would like to point out that there is already a page called thiyya in wikipedia so i dont see ezhava photos there . these mentioned facts clealry states that about 70 percent images and contents provided in this page is heavily vandalised and influenced and is filled with disputed claims . so i humbly request admin to take some time and read the whole article of this page and please understand what is the page trying to do . 

Also in in the history section , the image of chirappanchira kalari family provided is totally fake as the image is leading to a site called thiyyavamsam of kadathanadan tradition. While the description is some other .the souce provided is also invalid. And the page is abusing one other community too. 3. Also in a page called ezhava except one all images are from thiyya community who have dispute with ezhavas as mentioned by the page itself . so it is a big evidence to point out the attempts of vandalisation happended in this page . in short this is a page with disputed claims. Other wise the title of the page need to be changed to thiyyas rather than using our name 'ezhava' especially when dispute is there . This page is also talking bad about others communities . While we "ezhava " as per the name of this page dont want to indulge or participate in the defamation of others through our name . Inshort this page is deliberately, trying to misuse the name of 'ezhava' for political purpose of some others. 4. Now on a closing note i would like to mention that as a member of the community as per name of this page ,i can clearly say that this article is the most vandalised article on wikipedia working under some hidden agenda to defame and abuse mainly 3 communities namboodiries ,nairs and ezhavas by using the name of 'ezhavas '. Either with the support or by misleading the adminstrators for sure. As per lot of people pointed out ,one or more people are deliberately working behind vandalising the page of different communities in kerala ,so as 'ezhavas'. I would like to make this in attention of the administrators and other readers that please protect your self from misleading contents and misappropriation. Also i would like to say that we all are extremely humilated and hurted by the intellectually weak and cherry picked at the same time stereotyped content of this page. This is indeed a serious issue which should be reported to more higher authorities to prevent heavily disputed and vandalised contents through a great platform like wikipedia . Also we are planning to take possible legal actions against such defamations and stereotypings made by this page and for misusing name of ezhavas. The thiyyas and ezhavas are people who are living in different geolocations and have extremely different cultures. I dont know through which angle you are comparing with others and defaming ezhavas in a page called ezhavas unless someone have an intention to purposely do cyber bullying of these communities. So as i mentioned ,these images are cherrypicked and uncomparable related to the disputes mentioned in the page itself . so we would like to move to further actions and complaints if these facts remained vandalised again . and this not any legal threat but fight for justice and truth and an example of fight against cyber bullying ,stereotyped racism and misusal of identity and other online crimes which are spreading nowadays . remember justice delayed is justice denied . so i hope the adminsitrator will take the emotions of these communities seriously as it is tarnishing the name of different communities through this page .It is not a simple issue in community ridden indian society ,again i hope admin understand the intensity and seriousness of the situation . No one can misuse the name of a community for propoganda and it is unjustifiable,otherwise the editors are requested to change the name of the article from ezhavas to some other like "propoganda of caste fanatics " or thiyyas or any things else ,rather than tarnishing our name ,else i am compelled to make it in your kind attention that the admin or the people who allowed this kind of stereotypes would be solely responsible for the defamations ,humilation and other afer effects that happens . waiting for a justified and satisfactory repsonse from admin .thankyou. Worldofknowledge121 (talk) 13:36, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

I'm not able to cover all of this now, but:

1. The heading of this page is "Ezhava" ,while the irony is that in the first pragraph itself 2 images are being conpared - this is no longer the case. They are both captioned at being Ezhava (as the article lead identifies "Ezhava" and "Thiyyar" to be synomous (they are local names for the same group)

The page is providing an outdated citation and with the help of that is trying to defame both ezhava and one other community . - can you please specify which citation is concerning you.

If thiyyas and ezhavas are exactly same according to admin then what is the reason for specifically mentioning thiyyas and ezhavas in certain areas? - this is no longer the case.

so if you consider both as exactly same then remove the separate mentions of thiyyas and ezhavas . - done, with the exception of the dispute section where a distinction is justifed (as we are reporting the claim that they are distict)

Also i would like to point out that there is already a page called thiyya in wikipedia so i dont see ezhava photos there . - the page Thiyya redirects to Ezhava.

Heavy Vandalism

This page is Created for ezhava community history, spreading misinformation and trying to hijack another community's history. Ezhava and Thiyyar are entitly different communities but this page shows Thiyyars history and pictures labeled as Ezhava which is criminal offense according to indian cyber crime law. Editers of Ezhava page showing highly criminal behavior against another community. Arsalanactual (talk) 05:04, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Ezhava and Thiyyar are entitly different communities - not according to this article, or the majority of sources that I have seen.

As Ezhava and Thiyyar are regional names for the same group (i.e. Synonyms), it is entirely appropriate to use a consistent label throughout the article.

Note that Wikipedia is not subject to Indian cyber laws, and until you provide me with that law I'm afraid I simply don't believe you. It makes no sense that you aren't allowed to label Thiyyar images as Ezhava when Thiyyar and Ezhava are the same
