Byari [NEW]

The Byari people (the word “Byari” means “traders”) are Muslims of coastal Karnataka and Kerala, who commonly write their own language, a Dravidian language, in the Kannada script.

Recently, though, a Byari association created a script specifically for their community’s language. The extent to which the Byari community supports the script is still a matter of debate.
