Press Release – Condemning The Appropriation Of Women’s Movements and Muslim Women’s Voices by BJP Government

It appears that these stories before the Gujarat elections and assembly elections of 2019 will strengthen the image of the current government as a champion of women’s rights which will successively translate into winning election booths. We strongly resist this appropriation and unabashed manipulation of the Muslim community and especially the women.

Press Release: Public hearing on AADHAR related denials of social security

S. V. Rajadurai on Rebranding Ambedkar, Reinterpreting India – Understanding the RSS Agenda – Part 1 – 2

The RSS now find it encouraged to expand its energy in strengthening its cultural nationalism that would help diffusing the anger of the masses of India. The anger generated by the blatantly anti-farmer, anti-Adivasi, anti-Dalit and anti-labor policies pursued by the Modi sarkar. From this strategy flows the varied attempts to Brahmanise the minds of the people, the people from the OBC and Dalit communities, and direct their anger not against corporate capitalism, not against casteism, not against imperialism but against the religious minorities by painting them as a devil incarnate. This is quite similar to Hitler's scapegoating of jews for all the ills of Germany.

Shabana Ali on Colors of Dissent : Reiterating Contemporary Ambedkar through Art

UP: Beyond the Visible

The fruits of political path for Dalit Bahujans, set by Manyawar Kanshiram, have certainly been achieved to an extent. Having said that, it is also true that persecution of Dalits and Muslims in UP are on the headlines every now and then. Caste system, driven by Brahmanical social order, is still pervasive in most parts of UP and not all Dalit Bahujans are able to break out of its oppressive structures.

“Before I go out, I’ll create as many Dalit women leaders as I can” – Usha

Jignesh Mevani on #ChaloUna and beyond

When we adopted the slogan ‘gai ki doom aap rakho, hamein hamari zameen do’ (keep the cow’s tail for yourself, give us our lands), we are asking land for the poor. Within the poor, for Dalits. Within Dalits, for Dalit women. And within Dalit women for Valmiki women. And within Valmiki women if there are any widows, then for them.

Prof. K Satyanarayana: RSS-Modi projecting their ideology as Ambedkar’s ideology – Part 2

In all of Ambedkar’s writings, you will not find the phrase “social harmony” in relation to Hindus. He is a bitter critique of Hinduism. What they are trying to convey is that Ambedkar is very close to RSS, he used to meet every day with RSS intellectuals, he used to visit their RSS sakha, and he used to praise them every day, all these kinds of blatant lies.
