Nearly 10,000 people were killed and 25,000 were deported to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and other places by the end of the rebellion. There are records associated with the assassination of the Lord Conolly, who was the Malabar Collector between 1846 and 1855, and the involvement of Syed Fazal Pookoya Thangal in the 19th century revolts.


There is a transcript of a speech made by M.P. Narayana Menon at the Pandikadu mosque as well. The records give a clear idea about the revolts and the rebellion and the involvement of leaders like Ali Musliyar and Variyam Kunnathu Kunjahammed Haji in them.
