Chalo Ramabai Ambedkar Nagar!

 

Ambedkarite Students of Mumbai

We, Ambedkarite students from Mumbai, strongly condemn the attacks and threat on the life of Prof. Kancha Ilaiah, a highly respected intellectual and scholar of non-Aryan, pre-Vedic knowledge. It is because of his scholarship as one of the greatest scholars on the pre-Vedic, non-Hindu ideology that resisted the Aryan assault that he is being targeted by the Hindu supremacists. His claim of being a part of the Dalit-Bahujan community is established in his work "Why I am not a Hindu" which resisted Hindu caste tradition, the communities which the Brahmanical forces are trying to forcefully assimilate into Hindu fold since the 19th century. His exposure of the Brahmanical conspiracy is the reason for these attacks.

At this hour, when attacks on our budding knowledge systems have been increasing vehemently, we all stand strong in his support and condemn the regressive caste elements of Hindu social order. We, hereby wish to express our solidarity to Ilaiah through a gathering where we all will read, discuss and indulge in dialogue about his writings.
