Arundhuti Roy, the famous writer the famous comrade, a real life role model of lots of people of youth, but it really shocked the world on 20th January 2012 at St. Xavier's college near CST Mumbai, when she mentioned about Dr. Babasaheb's book Annihilation of caste, in which Babasaheb told The workers communist nation has to face two enemies one is capitalism and another one is Brahminism. And on this comment she quoted these words and told "I should not be misunderstood by saying that Brahmanism as enemy". You say a lot about freedom patriotism capitalism but India you say Brahmanism is not an enemy then its clear you are in whose side. She supports Maoism and says lots of things about communism then she must know who killed the communist Movement in India Brahmanism, They are the leaders and she must know what happened to Babasaheb too when he got elected for constitutional assembly election and mainly from these districts Faridpur, Khulna, Jashar and Barishal and what now the Brahmanical empored India corporation gave these districts to Bangladesh to make sure he never get elected again. The communist trade unions in India why they failed because they were leaded by Brahmanical ideological people The labours didn't went with the ideology of Communism the ideology to protest capitalism but instead they were misleaded and they protested for the luxury of employees no where in communist it's been said that to welcome capitalism and protest for luxury of labours. And Arundhuti supports these communist leaders. The Maoisism is same the Brahmins are the leaders misleading the people killing tribals and giving their lands to tribals. And when you say Babasaheb wrong that means you say that Bahujan exploited class people are wrong and you say to much about people and you one statement shows that how fake she is and how blindly she supports it. The Bahujans made her their role model but after this statement it’s clear that she is not worthy to be followed as a role model.

The largest circulated Hindi daily which is incidentally most popular amongst the Dalits in eastern part of India including Kolkata and aspires to become national very soon- publishes quotes from Manusmiriti daily on its Edit page!

Bengali and English Dailies in Kolkata do not quote Manusmiriti. The ruling Left in Bengal is said to be up against Manusmiriti and it launches a Marxist Dalit movement with a platform named Dalit Samanyaya Samiti. CPIM Hyderabad conference officially passed Dalit agenda.

Our Constitution is based on justice, liberty, equality, fraternity! Even Manusmiriti sustains. So much so Namboodaripad supported castism and the People’s president APJ missile man Abdul Kalam quotes from Manusmiriti.

In Bengal, the Brahmincal system is most organized, systematic and scientific. It is never as rough and rigid as the Hindi daily representing feudalism persistent in rest of India.

In fact, media as well as so called Mainstream Intelligentsia promotes Manusmiriti in most sophisticated way. Take any Bengali or English daily you may get the tone. They have sophisticated the folk and the dialects and use them against the indigenous people. Politicians play vote bank game. We may identify the caste logy in the polity. But the most dangerous type of discrimination is monopoly on knowledge, information, art, literature and culture.

Indian Intelligentsia has the single agenda of post modern Manusmiriti Galaxy Order under Zionist Hindu Imperialism. Thus, while they pose standing United with Nandigram singur resistance, they never allow a real Dalit movement in India!

The former Bihar Governor, M. Ramajois, said here on Sunday that despite the propaganda against it, the Manusmiriti remained a source of eternal values for humanity. At a popular lecture on the role of professionals in enforcement of contractual obligations in the construction industry, Justice Ramajois said the good points in this ancient law text must be taken and the irrelevant and unsuitable ones discarded. He opined that Manusmiriti elaborated on the "right to happiness" which contained within its ambit all other rights developed by western jurisprudence.

Dalit activists in Jaipur have taken strong exception to then President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam making a reference to "Manusmiriti" while extolling the virtue of not accepting gifts that come with a purpose, saying his citation from the ancient Hindu treatise was "unwarranted" and had "hurt the sentiments of Dalits" by according respectability to Manu’s pronouncements.

Mr. Kalam, addressing a function at the India Islamic Cultural Centre in New Delhi on Thursday, had remarked while quoting from "Manusmiriti" that by accepting gifts, the divine light in the person gets extinguished. Centre for Dalit Rights (CDR) chairperson P. L. Mimroth said the outgoing President need not have quoted from the archaic Hindu code of law that had created the Varna system under which the higher castes for centuries denied all basic human rights and dignity to Dalits. "For us, Manu only symbolizes the unjust social order imposed on Dalits from time immemorial."

Mr. Mimroth said Mr. Kalam, shortly demitting the highest constitutional office in the country, should not have made the "unwarranted reference" to an antiquated treatise which was squarely responsible for discrimination against Dalits and flew in the face of the constitutional ideal of a casteless society.

"Quoting from Manusmiriti amounts to paying homage to a figure who represents all that is unjust in the Indian society," said Mr. Mimroth. He added that Mr. Kalam could have mentioned any of the hundreds of literary, spiritual or religious figures – such as the acclaimed Tamil poet Sumbramanya Bharathi – to emphasize his point.

The Rajasthan convener of the National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) and PUCL State president, Than Singh, said Mr. Kalam’s reference to Manusmiriti was "shocking and strange" in view of the known fact that the unabated oppression of Dalits was because of the edicts prescribed in the treatise. "The President’s remarks have without doubt injured the emotions of Dalits who looked up to him for upholding constitutional values all these years," he added.

Dharma is the everlasting friend. It is essential not only for the individual’s happiness but also for the happiness of other individuals who constitute the family and the society," said Justice Shri Rama Jois, the Governor of Jharkhand. Speaking on his latest book, "The Eternal Values in Manusmiriti", at the Indian Institute of World Culture under the aegis of IGNCA - Southern Regional Centre, he elucidated upon the ancient text, regarded as the oldest codification of rules of dharma.

Untouchability and Starvation Live together in India! This is the ultimate truth of sense shining, to be Hindu Superpower India!

Local goons raided a Dalit hamlet and attacked women and children for allegedly ‘frolicking’ in a community temple in Shivalapar village under Shahpur police station in Danapur of Patna district on Friday evening.A tiff erupted between the Dalits and Ramavtar Yadav, when he objected to the Dalit children ‘dirtying the premises of the Goddess Durga temple.’

Yadav and his three sons Sanjay, Umesh and Dinesh raided the hamlet, comprising 50 families.

They caught hold of Gyanati Devi, pulled her hair, beat her up and poured boiling ‘Dal’ on her.

Her six-month-old daughter Sunita, too, suffered burns.

Influence on status of untouchables

The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment is responsible for all round development of Scheduled Castes and to bring them in the mainstream of national life and ensure their full participation in socio-economic development of the country.

Nearly 50 percent of the world's hungry live in India, a low-income, food-deficit country. Around 35 percent of India's population - 350 million - is considered food-insecure, consuming less than 80 percent of minimum energy requirements. In 1947, untouchability was banned by the Indian constitution established after independence from the British. Yet, as a social organization and economic constraint, untouchability is very much alive today. Its grip and that of the caste system, from which it derives, will necessarily be challenged to the very core if India is to become an industrialized nation. This question has now become urgent for India's 800 million people. As the 21st century nears, either India will find within itself the capacity for cultural regeneration permitting economic development, or as Mahatma Gandhi predicted, Hinduism will perish, and India with it.

Nutritional and health indicators are extremely low. Nearly nine out of 10 pregnant women aged between 15 and 49 years suffer from malnutrition and anemia. Anemia in pregnant women causes 20 percent of infant mortality. More than half of the children under five are moderately or severely malnourished, or suffer from stunting.

More than 160 million people in India are considered "Untouchable"—people tainted by their birth into a caste system that deems them impure, less than human.

Human rights abuses against these people, known as Dalits, are legion. A random sampling of headlines in mainstream Indian newspapers tells their story: "Dalit boy beaten to death for plucking flowers"; "Dalit tortured by cops for three days"; "Dalit 'witch' paraded naked in Bihar"; "Dalit killed in lock-up at Kurnool"; "7 Dalits burnt alive in caste clash"; "5 Dalits lynched in Haryana"; "Dalit woman gang-raped, paraded naked"; "Police egged on mob to lynch Dalits".

Dalits are not allowed to drink from the same wells, attend the same temples, wear shoes in the presence of an upper caste, or drink from the same cups in tea stalls," said Smita Narula, a senior researcher with Human Rights Watch, and author of Broken People: Caste Violence Against India's "Untouchables." Human Rights Watch is a worldwide activist organization based in New York.

India's Untouchables are relegated to the lowest jobs, and live in constant fear of being publicly humiliated, paraded naked, beaten, and raped with impunity by upper-caste Hindus seeking to keep them in their place. Merely walking through an upper-caste neighborhood is a life-threatening offense.

Nearly 90 percent of all the poor Indians and 95 percent of all the illiterate Indians are Dalits, according to figures presented at the International Dalit Conference that took place May 16 to 18 in Vancouver, Canada.

National Commission for socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities

A decision has been taken to appoint a National Commission to recommend measures for welfare of socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities.

The Terms of Reference of the commission are:

to suggest criteria for identification of socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities.

to recommend measures for welfare of socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities, including reservations in education and government employment.

to suggest the necessary constitutional, legal and administrative modalities as required for the implementation of their recommendations, and

to present a Report of their deliberations and recommendations.



The Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment is implementing a number of Schemes for the welfare and development of Scheduled Castes, Other Backward Classes, Minorities, the disabled, children in need of care and protection, the aged, victims of alcohol and drug abuse, etc. It is necessary that the impact of these Schemes/Programmes should be assessed and evaluated from time to time, so that these can be suitably modified /revised to make them more effective or phased out if their utility is found to be doubtful. It is also necessary to identify through research, areas where social problems are likely to arise in future so that the Ministry can plan timely interventions. The Ministry, therefore, sponsors research and evaluation studies under the Scheme of Grant in aid Rules for Research and Publications to assist in the task of review and future planning.

Under the Scheme, Universities/Research Institutions and Professional bodies are given financial assistance to meet the expenditure on research and evaluation studies in the broad areas of Social Policy, Social Development and Social Welfare, particularly to evaluate the Programmes/Schemes implemented for the welfare and development of Disabled Persons, OBCs, and Minorities and in the field of Social Defense.

Research proposals on the specified priority areas from established research institutions and universities are considered.

In cases, where it is felt that the problem needs to be studied on larger scale, a common research design is devised and the study on the subjects carried out simultaneously in several States/UTs.

The types of studies sponsored by the Ministry are (i) Evaluation Studies; (ii) Diagnostic Studies; and (iii) Documentation Studies. In the case of evaluation studies, the Ministry's programmes/schemes implemented at the field level are evaluated to know the effectiveness of the schemes and to modify/revise the schemes appropriately. The diagnostic studies are those on social problems relating to the areas of prostitution, drug abuse, the aged, children in difficult circumstances, minorities and OBCs and the disabled population. The documentation type of studies are - Preparation of summary of research projects, Preparation of Handbook of Social Welfare Statistics, Preparation of Compendium of Schemes, Directory of voluntary organizations in the field of Social Welfare, etc.

Since the inception of the Scheme from 1973-74, 433 Research/Evaluation Studies have been sponsored. The findings and recommendations of all these studies have been useful for the Ministry for evolving further intervention at the policy and implementation level. The reports are being utilized by research professionals working in related fields to review the progress of work and to identify social problems requiring urgent intervention.

The list of Research/Evaluation Studies sponsored from 1973-74 to 2003-04 (up to 31st December, 2004) is annexed.

The National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) has decided to launch a state wide agitation in Haryana in protest against the "continuous atrocities on dalits" in the state. A decision to this effect will be taken at a joint meeting of various Dalit organizations which has been convened by NCDHR on September 15 at Delhi. According to Arun Khote, secretary of the NCDHR, the Dalit organization have taken a serious note of the alleged murder of Rakesh alias Lara and incidents of violence and arson in Gohana town and else where in the country and they have decided to call a joint meeting on September 15 in Delhi to chalk out the future course of action on this issue. He said that the Dalit organizations wanted to impose President's rule in Haryana and declaration of Haryana as Dalit Utpeeran Grast Rajya. He also disclosed that the NCDHR has already apprised the Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission and Kumari Selja Union Minister of State about the incidents of atrocities on dalits in Haryana and demanded immediate taking of steps to check such cases in future. Referring to the alleged murder of Rakesh alias Lara, Khote said that it was a conspiracy and per-planned murder and the police have utterly failed to ensure the safety of dalits. If such types of atrocities continued, the Dalit organizations have no alternative but to launch a statewide agitation on this issue.

The Communist Party of India on Saturday demanded an end to the intimidation of Dalits in the Gohana area of Sonepat district in Haryana. This demand was made a day after CPI national secretary D. Raja visited Gohana, where a Dalit youth was killed last week resulting in clashes in several districts of the State.
