Participation in Quit India Movement

July 26, 2017: The Hindu

'Freedom fighter K.E. Mammen had participated in the Quit India Movement and also known as "Gandhi of Kerala".

Mr. Mammen had always followed Gandhian principles. He became active in the freedom movement as a college student. He was first jailed for taking an open stand against C.P Ramaswamy Iyer, the then Dewan of the erstwhile Travancore state. After being denied an opportunity at continued studies here, he shifted to Madras Christian College in 1940. He was ousted from there too, following his participation in the Quit India Struggle.

Mr. Mammen had been active in anti-liquor struggles in the state.
