RSS trying to malign Ambedkar
Spokesperson: Shri K. Raju and Dr. Ajoy Kumar: Shri K. Raju said all of us know that RSS and BJP have a deep and visceral hatred towards the Congress Party’s ideology which is enshrined in the India’s Constitution for three reasons.
1. The Constitution has established secular and democratic Republic and guarantees Justice, Liberty and Equality to all the citizens irrespective of religion and caste.
2. The second reason is because under the Indian Constitution Hindu Rashtra idea has not fructified for nearly seven decades and will keep it at a bay perpetually in this country.
3. The third reason is because it is authored by Babsaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. These are the reasons as to why the RSS and BJP are known to hate the Constitution and the Indian National Congress ideology. Modi Ji keeps saying ’Congress-Mukt Bharat’ but what they want is ’Constitution-Mukt-Bharat’. This is what we need to really understand. The entire agenda is to achieve ’Constitution- Mukt-Bharat’.
All of us know, very recently, RSS ideologue Ram Bahadur Rai has argued that the Indian Constitution was not written by Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. He has further stated that Babasaheb had merely corrected the English language of the Constitution. This way, he has offended the sentiments of millions of Indians across the country. Not only did he offend the sentiments of Millions of the Indians because all of us hold him in high esteem, but also the contribution made by Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar in the making of the Constitution.
Shri Rajendra Prasad Ji and Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, in the Constituent Assembly, have appreciated the diligence, the manner in which he had taken up every Article of the Constitution for discussion and the kind of similar contribution Babasaheb made to the making of the Constitution.
Ram Bahadur Rai and many others in the RSS have played and demonstrated their deep anti-dalit attitude. Genl.V.K. Singh callously compared Dalits to dogs. Madhu Mishra called for a war against Dalits and the Constitution of India. Mohan Bhagwat attacked the reservations. They are doing because M.S. Golwalkar who is incidentally Modi Ji’s idol; he had very plainly opposed the very Constitution that India has adopted.
I would like to quote from his writing. “Unfortunately our Constitution has given equal rights to everybody just as a person without understanding that it may give equal rights to his children and to the thieves in his House and distribute the property among all”.
It is this ideology and the mental frame that today we see significant rise in the atrocities against Dalits across the country, particularly in the BJP-ruled States. There is 20% increase in the atrocities against Dalits. BJP, we have seen, how have they converted our Universities into Caste Panchayats, clamped down on Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle. We have seen as to how Modi Ji’s Ministers Smriti Irani and Shri Bandaru Dattatrey literally pushed Rohith Vemula to commit suicide at Hyderabad. So, it is in this background, we need to understand the latest statement of Ram Bahadur Rai wherein he says the Constitution was not written by Babasaheb but he had merely corrected the language of the Constitution.
The Indian National Congress demands an apology for offending the sentiments of millions of Indians and the Congress Party will take up agitation cross the country demanding his apology. Wednesday, 8th June, 2016.
