“The ideological terrorism is more dangerous than the weapon terrorism.” – Dr. V. T. Rajendran

Delivering his view on this topic, Mr. V. Rajendran said that he is very glad to be a part of this august gathering. He said that when we talk of terrorism and the word threat, we need to differentiate and give definition for both the terms. Terrorism normally means the use of arms, ammunition and other weapons to attack. But the other terrorism which is very prevalent in this country is the ideological terrorism. The ideological terrorism is more dangerous than the weapon terrorism. When we talk about the protection of a nation, the nation is not limited to the map. Protection is defined to be the protection of the rights of the people of the nation. When we talk of protection, we need to protect the rights of the nation, which is more important. Defining the cardinal principles of Brahminism, Dr. Ambedkar said that 1) Brahminism is nothing but the graded inequality between different castes, 2) Complete disarmament of Shudras and untouchables, 3) Ban on Shudras and untouchables occupying places of power and authority, 4) Ban on Shudras and untouchables acquiring properties, 5) Complete prohibition of education to Shudras and untouchables, and 6) Complete subjugation and suppression of women. Inequality is therefore the official doctrine of Brahminism.

Beyond this there could not be apt definition for the word terrorism and ideological terrorism. People are usually telling that Dr. Ambedkar said that he is against Brahminism but not Brahmins. But this is very wrong perception. In this conference also a book is released which clarifies this dilemma. This is very right and appreciable move. We are against Capitalism; it means that we need to fight against capitalist of the country. If we are saying that we are against feudalism, then we are against the feudalist. Likewise when we say that we are against Brahminism, we cannot set aside the Brahmins from the Brahminical ideology. It is the Brahmins who actually define and carry forward the Brahminical ideology. While we say that in Brahmins there are progressive Brahmin thinkers and these were reformers, Dr. Rajendran said that he would like to quote Dr. Ambedkar on this issue. Dr. Ambedkar said, “It is useless to make a distinction between the secular Brahmin and a progressive Brahmin. Both are kith and kin. They are the two arms of the same body and one is bound to fight for the existence of other.”

Further delivering his speech, Dr. Rajendran said that the universe is under the power of gods, the gods are under the powers of mantras and the mantras are under the control of Brahmins. Therefore the Brahmins are our God. This quotation is from the Sanskrit slogan and it shows how the Brahminical terrorism and it kept the whole society under the crux of the Brahminical ideology. Brahminism has been proving its superiority in all the three fields – politics, economy and culture. When it comes to culture, this country has different religions, ethnic societies with different cultural identities and practices. Brahmins brought their Vedic religion, renamed it as Hindu religion and termed all these people as Hindus and made Vedic religion as religion of masses. Buddha revolted against this, but again Buddhism was suppressed by Brahmins.

Warren Hastings in 1872, who was the governor of British India, announced that all the rules of this nation will govern by the principles of Manusmruti. Specifically from 1872 to 1950, all the courts of this country were giving verdicts based on Manusmruti. Because of this, based on caste in which the person was born, the verdict was given and for the same crime punishment was different. Somebody was released and some were jailed or killed. There can be no worst terrorism than this in the world. Only in 1860, a common Criminal Law was introduced. But even then the Civil Law remained to be the same and it was based on Varnas. But in a civil society the criminal activities are based on the society structure. Hence because of that, though the civil criminal law has been made common, the civil law still remains biased and those who are punished under criminal law are mostly the oppressed people. The people like Sankaracharya, who come from the Brahmin society, usually escape the criminal law.

If we look at the current face of terrorism, we can notice that the Brahminical ideology wanted to establish an expanded India country under the supremacy of the Brahminical society. They wanted to establish a cultural nationalism called as the Hindu Nationalism. This type of nationalism they wanted to establish in this country. The Brahminical ideology wanted to establish an Aryan nation. This Aryan nation included all the indigenous people of this country (non-Brahmins, minority, Shudras, OBCs and the Brahmins). For this all Arya Samaj was in full support. In 1875 they proposed this ideology and they started movements to achieve this particular theory. They tried to merge three provinces – Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata – under one Aryan nation. But after that through the British Empire, they were facing certain problems. The British government introduced new law and the British missionaries came here to bring awareness of education and other measures. They introduced a new legislative system. Social reform act like Sati was introduced. There were reservations introduced for minority class people by the British. The Brahmins made their next move in asking for some reservation for themselves. Later they turned away from Aryan nation theory and introduced a new thing which could help them to achieve this goal. Dr. Rajendran further quoted Crom Shee, “Any group which would like to achieve supremacy in this nation should have to establish themselves as the sole representatives of this nation. In India it is the Brahminical society which has moved/exposed itself to that level.”

Due to the new law introduced by the British government, instead of Aryan nation, Brahmins proposed the Indian nation theory, through which they introduced Hindu ideologies. They infiltrated into it and along with British formed the Indian National Congress. After the nation became independent from British rule, the power from British was smoothly transferred only to the Brahminical team. The first prime minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru was called to be a socialist. But if he had been a true socialist, he should have worked for the power to be in the hands of indigenous people of India. But he didn’t work for that, instead he worked against them and was keen on transferring the power to Brahmins. He wanted to make the complete public sector under the Brahminical domination. Though the industries were brought under the control of government of India, these industries were controlled by Brahminical dominated society. In 1961 the then PM Nehru wrote a letter to all the chief ministers of state. In that letter he stated that he is very much against reservation on any basis, and specifically on the caste basis. He also mentioned that any reservation would result in degradation of efficiency and will result in second grade efficiency to take the predominance. So he declared that he is against reservation policies. The IIMs and IITs which were formed at that time were all made open for Brahmins only and those Brahmins who studied on the money of people, instead of serving India, had settled abroad. From the socialism spoken by Nehru, we can understand that the country was under Brahminical beauracratic rule. Only after VP Singh became prime minister, the Mandal commission report was implemented and through that the beauracracy was opened to indigenous people of this country. Due to this, there was a change in the strategy of working of Indian government style. There is a great change in Indian political scenario due to Mandal commission report implementation. The Brahminical society was scared that Mandal commission will reduce their supremacy in the beauracracy. They tried to stop it, but they could not succeed. They adopted a new strategy through which they introduced LPG. With the advent of globalization, private sector flourished rapidly and many multinational companies entered in the country. The whole industrial sector is now dominated by private sector and multinational companies. Because of this, the employment in the public sector has been reduced to a greater extent. Now the MNCs and the industries have become the deciding factors of the political economic decisions of this country. This is the new face of the Brahminical terrorism. In the recent newspaper, there was a news about “who will become which minister was decided by the industrial lobby” in the Manmohan Singh ministry.

The Brahminical society has now taken a new face. They are holding the high position in private sector, MNCs, in the industrial sectors and they have isolated the indigenous people of this country and are controlling all the political and economic decisions of the country. The economic race between the MNCs has now become the politics of the country. The Brahminical industrial sector is now playing a game in the field. But who ever will win, the loss is for indigenous people of this country only. Hence the indigenous people of this country are always on the loosing front.

The Brahmin-Bania nexus is the new face of Brahminical terrorism. We the masses of this country are now in a situation to fight against this new face of Brahminical terrorism. From Phuley, Ambedkar to Periyar, whoever was fighting against Brahminical terrorism, were termed as anti-national, communalist. Now we are in a situation to fight against this terrorism. We cannot sit idle in our own comfort zone, saying we are happy in our cars and you are happy in your cars. This is not the way to proceed. Unless we fight with unity against this Brahminical terrorism, we cannot become Independent or liberate ourselves.

Thank you. Jai Bhim. Jai Mulnivasi.
