Tuesday marks the eightieth anniversary of the arrest of Mathrubhumi's former editor KA Damodara Menon.
The editor was arrested from his office during the Quit India movement. The incident which sent shock waves across the press and public all over the nation happened on August 9, 1942, at around 11.30 am at the Mathrubhumi office in Kozhikode.
Police arrested Menon under the now-defunct National Security Law. On the same day, police booked former editor K Kelappan and director Kozhippurath Madhava Menon on similar grounds.
Despite all odds, Mathrubhumi kept on publishing news to fuel the independence struggles, without giving away the principles.
