“If he (TN Gov RN Ravi) refuses to utter the name of Ambedkar in his Assembly speech, don’t I have the right to assault him? If you (Gov) don’t read out the speech given by Govt, go to Kashmir and we’ll send terrorists so that they’ll gun you down”, these were the words of a political coming from the ruling party of Tamil Nadu Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Shivajii Krishnamoorthy. Citizens of a state which patronizes itself for being the largest democracy, can barely imagine if these words can be made for the governor of a state but in the land where personalities like BR Ambedkar is worshipped, such instances feels normal.

Ambedkar worship is slowly making the colours of Bhartiya Civilization fade. Sidelining with BR Ambedkar and his views has become politically correct and anyone dissenting against the “political massiah” in no time is termed a Casteist. Political Parties too are running a race to prove themselves as more loyal to the cause of BR Ambedkar. Co-opting Anti-Dharmic people for political gains will harm Dharma on a larger scale at the end of the day. The ruling party at centre, Bhartiya Janta Party which is looked upon as the only pro hindu political party left is sadly engaging itself into the club of Ambedkar and Periyar politics in order to fetch the vote banks of lower castes. But the bigger question is will this type of poltics help Dharma in the longer run ?

Fetching votes in the name of anti-hindu personalities like Ambedkar, Periyar who went up to burn our Shastras and commited blasphemy agaist our Devi Devtas will create an anti-shastra mindset into the minds of lower caste Hindus. Because of this kind of politics, anti-hindu Ambedkar and Periyar has become popular and sacred figures into the eyes of Shudras. The caste politics has filled the minds of Shudras with the idea of Hinduism being a casteist religion. Patriarchy and misogyny are also the tags which are given to Hinduism and Hindu Devi-Devtas from Feminists and some Shudras. Also this politics encourages conversion of Hindus into Buddhism after taking inspiration from their newly created god Dr BR Ambedkar who burnt Manusmriti, left Hinduism and went up into the folds of Buddhism. “Annihilation of Caste” is a book written by BR Ambedkar where he blasphemed against Hindu Gods and Goddesses. He labelled Hinduism as Casteist and Patriarchal in nature. Also the politics creates a deep hatred for the Brahmin community which has always been in the forefront in resisting invaders and also are the ones upon whose shoulders the base of Hinduism lies. This is the reason Islamists, Christians, Communists, Feminists, Neo Buddhists all tried and are trying their best to shatter down the Brahmin community. Dr Ambedkar and Periyar shared deep hatred towards Brahmins, Periyar even said that if anyone finds a snake and a brahmin, then he should kill Brahmin first. This was the level of hate which was filled inside the newly created icons of Shudras due to caste politics.

On 5th of October on the occasion of Dussehra at the Dr BR Ambedkar Bhavan in New Delhi, 10,000 Hindus converted to Buddhism .During the event, people were asked to pledge not to consider Hindu deities and gods and goddesses anymore and were asked to show full faith in Buddhism. The event was organised by Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Rajendra Pal Gautam, Minister of Social Welfare in Delhi, Bharatiya Boddh Mahasabha, and Buddhist Society of India, the program was attended by many Buddhist monks along with Rajratna Ambedkar, great-grandnephew of Dr BR Ambedkar and President of Buddhist Society of India.

In the Jai Bhim Mission program, 10 thousand Hindus were administered an oath that they would not worship Hindu gods and goddesses. During this the people attending the event was heard saying, “I will not consider or worship the Hindu deities Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, Shri Ram and Shri Krishna as God. I will have no faith in Rama and Krishna, who are believed to be incarnations of God.” This oath was very similar to the controversial 22 pledges of BR Ambedkar.

The oath further added “I do not believe nor will I believe that Lord Buddha was an incarnation of Vishnu. I consider this to be mere madness and false propaganda. I will not perform Shradh nor will I perform Pind Daan. The man dressed in saffron continued the oath, “I will not allow any ceremony to be performed by Brahmins. I renounce Hinduism, which is harmful to humanity and hinders their development, because it is based on inequality. I accept Buddhism as my religion.”

During the programme, AAP minister Rajendra Pal Gautam was seen reiterating these controversial lines and sharing the stage with the man. Later, in his speech, he urged Hindus to renounce their religion and follow the path of Dr. Ambedkar. Gautam said, “If you do not want to be called a traitor, then we need to spread this message of BR Ambedkar to every household. If the species is created by nature, then why is there no species in France, China, Korea, Australia, New Zealand? Who benefited from this caste system and who suffered the most? BR Ambedkar had found the medicine for this disease and now we are spreading it.” Rajendra Pal Gautam also lamented how BR Ambedkar died within a month of converting to Buddhism and he could not change the whole country.

Brahmins are the people who have always been in the forefront to resist invaders. Brahmins like Pushyamitra Sunga, Nanasaheb, Sadashiv Rao, Chanakya VishnuGupta, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Chandrasekhar Azad etc were some of the Braves because of whom the oldest civilization still lives. But Brahmims today are treated worse than malechhas.
