Mathai Manjooran ( 13 October 1912 – 14 January 1970) was an Indian independence activist from Kerala, socialist revolutionary, Member of Parliament, Minister of Labour in the second E.M.S. Namboodiripad communist ministry, and above all the staunchest proponent for the formation of the Kerala State.

Mathai was born as the second son of Mathew Manjooran and Elishua on October 13, 1912 at Chakkarakadavu, in the erstwhile princely state of Kochi.

Mathai was led by hand into active politics by his elder brother Cherian Manjooran.

When the state was harrowing under the effects of the Great Depression of the 1930s, yet another great convulsion engulfed the land from end to end. But this time it was a positive one in the form of the Quit India Movement of 1942. Instead of being a passive spectator, Mathai plunged headlong into the vortex of the movement.

The tumultuous Kizhaariyoor bomb case is the result of one of such attempts.
