I would like to ask you all what is the sense in living in a society which
is devoid of humanity, which does not respect you, protect you, humiliates
you, and never misses and opportunity to hurt you. Any person with an iota
of self respect and decency will not like to remain in this satanic
religion. Only those who live to be slaves can remain in this religion.
In view of the facts that the Hindu religion which forced your forefathers
to lead a life of degradation and heaped all sorts of indignities on them,
kept them poor and ignorant, why should you remain within the fold of such a
diabolical creed? If, like your forefathers, you too, continue to accept a
degraded and lowly position, and humiliation, you will continue to he hated.
Nobody will respect you and nobody will help you. It is for these reasons
that the question of conversion has become important for us. To change this degraded and disgraceful existence into golden life, conversion is absolutely necessary”.-Dr.Ambedkar
