The legend of the Mukkuvar vs Timilar war says the Muslims (“Pattanis” “Tulukkars”, etc.) were rewarded for their aid to the Mukkuvars by being given the choice of land or Mukkuvar wives.

They chose the latter, thereby gaining both wives AND land because the Mukkuvars are matrilineal and Mukkuvar women often own houses & paddy lands. During the annual rice-harvesting season, Thimilars raided & pillaged Eravur & other Mukkuvar hamlets, razed their temples, destroyed their crops and their meager livestock, & raped & abducted Mukkuvar women.

Ergo the “Mukkuvars” established an alliance with the Pathans, & sought their help to thwart the Thimilar’s incursions into Eravur.Ram, Kalpana. Mukkuvar Women: Gender, Hegemony and Capitalist Transformation in a South Indian Fishing Community. New Delhi: Kali for Women, Rizzuto, Ana-Maria.
