Brahmins who did not oppose the Islamic rule of 1200 years. But are opposing the British who ruled for 150years only. why is it so?
For 1200 years the mughal rulers did not oppose the Law of Manu which enslaved the common people. But the British completely got ride of it in a phased manner. We shall see what it is.
1) As per Law of Manu only Brahmins can be educated, Kshatriya can rule, Vysya can do trade and Shudra has to be slave to the above three was not accepted by the British. They wanted everyone to be equal in the sight of the Law. On this basis they started to rewrite the laws in 1773.
2)Till then only Kshatriyas had right to own property. But in 1795 the right to property was granted to everyone in India.
3)In 1804 female infanticide was banned in India.
4)In 1813 bond labour system was abolished.
5)Any shudra who molests brahmin women has to be killed(Manu VII 374,375).A brahmin man can have illicit relationship with a shudra woman. The children born out of such relationship is treated as dead children (Manu IX 178). A brahmin who molests a shudra women can go scott free. in this situation, the British in 1817 ruled that anyone irrespective of caste will be punished if they are guilty of molestation.
6)On the day of marriage the shudra woman has to be in temple and the serve the brahmin priests for 7 days. This was abolished in 1819.
7)Only brahmins can be educated under Manu law. In this situation, Lord Macauley tried relentlessly and in 1835 it was enacted that shudras also can receive education.
8)The first child born to shudra couple has to be thrown into Ganges as ganga danam. This was abolished by British in 1835.
9)In 1835 it enacted that shudras also can sit on a chair.
10) In 1868 the British abolished the Manu Law.
If the British did not rule India, there is no education for shudras.
Periyar broke the chain of slavery forever. We remember the good deeds of British in breaking the chain of slavery with gratitude.
(translated from Tamil)
[6:26 PM, 12/23/2017] +91 94492 60443: We are cent percent against who believe that the chitpavan brahmins are 1st rate athmas (souls), the Kshatriyas 2nd rate, vysias 3rd rate, shudras 4th rate and the ati shudra the untouchables as having no soul at all so that all sorts of atrocities can be committed on them while the Buddha never believed in any soul. He said all are equal. Therefore, we were Buddhists, are Buddhists and will continue to be Buddhists.
Mysore salutes Mahar valour
Mysore celebrated the Koregaon Victory Day for the first time ever. “The vested interests have buried the real history of India to keep themselves at the helm of affairs without shedding even a drop of sweat and blood,” said Prof B. P. Mahesh Chandra Guru, media scholar and a rationalist, who was the chief guest at a public function held as part of the celebrations at Ashokapuram on the New Year’s Day, which also happens to be the Koregaon Victory Day. “Ramayana, Mahabharata, Vachana literature, rebel literature and the Constitution of India, which represent the greatest wisdom and human values, were produced by the indigenous people. They have also produced national wealth and political power with great sacrifice, but they have been marginalized in the country by the brahmanical and capitalist forces in the post-Independence era.”
Guru reminded the audience of the feat of an army of 500 hundred brave Mahar soldiers. On 1 January 1818, they defeated a 28,000-strong army led by the Peshwas of Maratha Empire who were against social equality and justice. Dr B.R. Ambedkar launched the tradition of celebrating the victory day on 1 January 1927 by paying floral tribute to the soldiers at the Koregaon Bhima Victory Pillar. He would do this every New Year’s to recall the historical war of independence led by the indigenous people.
The events of the Koregaon Victory Day were organized by Jai Bhim Sports Club and other progressive organizations. Purushotham, former mayor, Mysore city; Umesh, advocate; Avinash, Youth Congress president; Ramesh, research scholar; Guru Murthy and Mahesh Sosle, president and secretary, Dalit Students’ Federation, University of Mysore; and other progressive thinkers and activists participated in the celebrations. Hundreds of youths took part in a motorbike rally from Ashokpuram to the Town Hall, where they laid flowers at the statue of B. R. Ambedkar.
