Remembering Babasaheb on his 61st Mahaparinivan Diwas 14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956
On this Mahaparinirvan day when we remember Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, we must not forget the dreams of an egalitarian society which Babasaheb envisioned. In the present day Indian society we witness crimes which vehemently victimize Dalit, Adivasi, Muslim and Bahujan communities. Such atrocities on targeted communities are nothing but the ways in which Brahminical forces are stretching their arms to re-establish the hegemony which it had enjoyed for centuries. It is time for us to understand that the egalitarian revolution which Babasaheb dreamt about is not merely words written in the constitution but the true spirit in which it has to be implemented. The atrocities which Dalit, Adivasi, Muslim and Bahujan communities are facing, be it institutional murder of Rohith Vemula, enforced disappearance of Najeeb Ahmed, rape of Dalit women, communal, casteist attacks on Muslims, Dalits, Adivasis, Bahujan are all reflections of the Brahminical forces winning over the principle of justice and fraternity which the Constitution of India enshrines.
