Among the different Muslim communities, Ravuthar is one of the Muslim communities from the South Indian States of Tamil Nadu and Kerala who are socially excluded at a wider. The etymology of the word suggests ravath means warriors. But in reality, the Ravuthar community is facing high discrimination among the Muslim community.
