Programme Schedule


INAUGURAL SESSION

Date: 27th December 2008 Time: 10: 00 am to 1:30 pm

(Lunch Break 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM)

DELEGATE SESSION NO: 1

Date: 27th Dec.2008 (Saturday) | Time: 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Subject: Self Introspection by the cadres with regards to work done by them and ways and means to achive long term ob- jective of the organization.

BAMCEF had committed itself to the objective of Social Change and had trained its cadres to achieve the same. Keeping this objective in mind, cadres of BAMCEF are active in the society for past three decades and have been continuously educating and awakening the masses. These efforts have resulted in reviving the Phule-Ambedkarite movement to the extent that it has been acknowledged by all the prevailing forces in the country. Certainly this stage could be achieved due to tireless efforts and commitment of cadres for building the movement. However, since the ultimate objective is yet to be achieved, the process of further strengthening the movement has to continue and cadres will be required to put in more and more efforts in determined manner. BAMCEF will be entering the fourth decade in 2009 and on the occasion of Silver Jubilee National Convention, we need to take a review of the work done by us in the past and plan for future. We need to do the introspection to asses and quantify the work done in the past. We need to reflect, whether we had been working in right manner, whether our work was matching with the requirement of our objective and to what extent our caravan has moved in the right direction to achieve the objective. Self-introspection in this regard will not only help us to understand the working of the Phule – Ambedkarite mission in the past but also will help us to learn the lessons from the past and plan for future so that we achieve our ultimate objective of bringing Social Change at the earliest.

 Delegates from different states shall participate.

 AWAKENING SESSION NO: 1

Date: 27th Dec.2008 (Saturday) | Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Subject: Identification of Mulnivasi Culture and Challenges for its revitalization in the society.

Several Researches in History, Geography,Archaeology,Anthropology have highlighted the fact that the Mulnivasis of this country had nurtured highly developed glorious civilization on the banks of Indus River during ancient times. But after the invasion of Aryans, the Brahmins destroyed the egalitarian culture of Mulnivasis and imposed on them the inequal, inhuman brahmanical culture and brahmanized the Mulnivasi people of this land. In spite of this the roots of Mulnivasi culture could not be totally eliminated and the glimpses of which , in symbolic form, could still be clearly seen even today in Mulnivasi traditions, festivals, life styles, food habits, costumes etc.. But because of the influence and mixing of brahmanical culture it is difficult to distinguish and identify the mulnivasi culture. It has therefore become a challenging situation to understand, adopt and practice the glorious cultural values in the society. To explore the cultural values and various dimensions of Mulnivasi culture we are discussing this topic.

Speakers:

Dr. A.H. Salunke (Social Thinker, Maharashtra)

Dr. Vilaxan Ravidas (Prof., Tilka Majhi University, Bhagalpur)

Mr. G. Aloysis (Social Activist, New Delhi)

Mr. D.D. Kalyani ( CEC Member, BAMCEF) shall preside over

 DELIGATE SESSION NO: 2

Date: 28th Dec. 2008 (Sunday) | Time: 10:00 am to 1.00 pm

Subject: We should have firm belief in the objective and awakening program rather than adopting reactionary methods.

The Post-Ambedkarite era has witnessed rise and fall of many Ambedkarite organizations. Though the initial formations of the organizations were with sincere desire and pious intentions but in due course these organizations simply vanished from the scene or aligned with other forces for petty gains. This gave a major setback to Phule-Ambedkarite movement and the masses became leaderless. Secondly, it is also observed that on several occasions, the Phule-Ambedkarite masses have spontaneously reacted to the unjust act of the ruling class. However, such reactions could not result into building the movement. Enthusiasm of the masses faded with equal speed with which they reacted on the issue. In both cases it can be observed that, neither there was specific and long term objective of Social Change before them, nor there was any desire to build the movement. BAMCEF has a very clear objective of Social Change, which our fore fathers had set for us. BAMCEF has never diluted, compromised or modified the objective. It is for this reason that BAMCEF did not turn out to be a compromising force. BAMCEF is of a firm opinion that unless there is specific and long term objective in front of us, the movement cannot be built. Having the objective, therefore, becomes a pre-requisite for building the movement. Therefore it becomes mandatory for cadres that they should have firm belief in and dedication towards the Objective of Social Change. Superficial sentimental involvement, without clarity and belief in the Objective, will pose a threat to the movement. If we express our firm belief in the objective, then it is our bounden duty that we keep awakening the masses rather than letting the potential drain out by reactionary methods. We had decided to discuss the subject in this perspective.

Speakers: Delegates from different states shall participate.

Mr. S.R. Mourya (Director Training, BAMCEF) shall preside over

(Lunch Break 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM)

 AWAKENING SESSION NO: 2

Date: 28th Dec.2008 (Sunday) | Time: 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Subject: The present National Economic policy is detrimental to achieve constitutional goal of economic justice for Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.

The strength of any nation depends upon presence and practice of values of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and Justice in its social, political and economic life. Accordingly, these values were incorporated in our Constitution, quite explicitly in Preamble, Fundamental Rights and Directive Principles of State Policy to make Indian Nation economically strong and Governments were expected to formulate and implement the Economic Policies to achieve the Constitutional Objective of Economic Justice. But instead of doing this, governments are making the policies which cause Gross Economic Injustice to Mulnivasi Bahujans (SC/ST/OBC/Religiously Converted Mulnivasi) who are 85 percent of Indian Population. This is resulting in inequality of income and wealth, mass unemployment, illiteracy, poverty, hunger, diseases, starvation deaths and even suicides due to economic distress. This misdeed of rulers is against national interests and therefore needs to be exposed. This is a serious issue for Mulnivasi Intellectuals and therefore this topic is taken for discussion.

Speakers:

Dr. Victor Louis Anthuvan (Prof.Finance,Loyala Institute,Chennai)

Dr. Pradeep Prajapati (Dean, Faculty of Art, Gujrat University)

and other Prominant Speakers

Mr. B.D. Borkar (Member CEC, BAMCEF) shall preside over

(Tea Break 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM)

Performance by Cultural Troupe – 6.00 to 6.30 pm

 AWAKENING SESSION NO: 3

Date: 28th Dec.2008 (Sunday) | Time 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Subject: Brahmanical Terrorism is much more dangerous than any other form of terrorism.

The country has witnessed several forms of terrorism during the past 15-20 years. The Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj was invariably the victim of all these terrorist acts irrespective of the group who committed the act. Recently the terrorism has again become an issue in national discourse. Religious colour is been given to these acts of terrorism. The National press is reporting them as Sikh terrorism, Islamic terrorism and Hindu terrorism. The issue is why people take to terrorism? Are they born terrorist? In democracy every section of the society has right to assert for their rights through free expression of their thoughts. However, brahmanical forces in the name of Hindu majority terrorize the atmosphere and gagged the voice of millions of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj so that they do not assert for their rights. They have destroyed many generations of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj by imposing mental slavery. It was therefore, decided to expose the brahmanical terrorism and awaken the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.

Speakers:

Mr. S.V. Rajadurai (Scholar,Periyar Studies,Ooty.)

Dr. Vivek Kumar (Prof.,Dept.of Sociology J.N.U.New Delhi),

Dr. P. M. Shrimali (HOD Dept.of History, LC Mehta Colleage of Arts,Ahmedabad)

Mr. S.F. Gangawane (National Pracharak, BAMCEF) shall preside over.

N.R.I. Delegate Session

Date: 29th Dec.2008 (Monday) | Time: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Subject: Duty and moral responsibility of NRI’s to fulfill the expectation of Phule-Ambedkarite movement.

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkars emphasis on higher education had motivated the mulnivasi bahujan samaj which created the large number of highly educated people. But at the same time there is a vast section of the society who is still under the grip of social inequalities and are deprived of their basic rights. It is therefore a duty of educated lot to strive for the emancipation of the deprived section by strengthening the Phule-Ambedkarite movement. BAMCEF over past three decade had made efforts to rope in this educated class into the movement and use the available resouces to build the movement. Also the sizeable  number of this educated people had setteled abroad who still has concern for their  brethren here in India. This concern is a great asset for the movement. The intellectual and economic resources and the social feelings in them, if consolidates and put to use can uproot the social disabilities of Indian community. It is therefore, necessary to consolidate all these resources and make Phule-Ambedkarite movement more effective. It is in this regard the duties and moral responsibilities of NRIs needs to be discussed and evaluated towards their brethren.

Speakers:

Mr. Ashish Jiwane (U.A.E. Dubai),

Mr. Raju Kamble (Calgery,Canada)

Ms. Kamlesh Ahir (Canada),

Mr. Sonu Ambedkar (California)

Mr. M.S. Bahal (International Co-ordinator, London) shall preside over.

AWAKENING SESSION NO: 4

Date: 29th Dec. 2008 (Monday) | Time: 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm

Subject: De-brahmanization of Tribals and their socio-economic emancipation.

Tribals are most neglected and exploited section of Indian society. The main reason is, in the past they had openly opposed and fought against Aryan invasion and subsequent rule. The Arya Brahmin had therefore forced the Adivasis to lead the sub-human life in the forest. Despite they struggled a lot to preserve their original identity and glorious culture. The Mulnivasi identity and culture preserved by the tribals has become a matter of concern for brahmanical forces because of which they are trying to replace the Adivasi identity by Vanvasi identity and Adivasi culture by so called Hindu culture. With the change of this nomenclature, the process of brahmanization of tribals has started. Besides this, attempts are made to identifiy and divide the tribals on religious basis by calling them as Hindu Adivasi, Non-Hindu Adivasi, Christian Adivasi etc., so that they keep fighting amongst themselves. Natural resources like forests, land and water have always remained the source of livelihood and part cultural milieu of the tribals. However this has been snatched away by mafia, landlords, money lenders and even the industrialists in the name of development and Adivasis are compelled to move out of their original dwellings. The ruling class is watching the situation as silent spectator. Due to this the socio-economic condition of tribals is getting worst day by day. This socio-economic man made disaster caused by brahmnical forces is creating havoc for Adivasis such as starvation deaths of children, epidemics and mass illiteracy. It is therefore necessary that the Adivasis needs to be de-brahmanized and emancipated from their social and economic exploitation. To analyze this problem and to arrive at some solution we had kept this topic for discussion.

Speakers:

Dr. Ramdayal Munda (Former Vice Chancellor,Ranchi University)

Dr. Hemlata Maheshwar (Guru Ghasidas University,Bilaspur)

Dr. Anuja Tigga (Prof.of Geography, Andhra University)

Mr. S.S. Dhammy (C.E.C. Member, BAMCEF) shall preside over

(Tea Break 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM)

AWAKENING SESSION NO: 5

Date: 29th Dec.2008 (Monday) | Time: 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Subject: Sub-Categorization of Constitutional reservation amongst castes – A Conspiracy of rulers to initiate infighting among organizing Mulnivasi Samaj.

It is well known fact that our forefathers have done the revolutionary work of emancipating the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj from the mental slavery of Brahminism. Because of which the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (S.E.B.C.) viz., S.C., S.T. and O.B.Cs have been emerged and provided representation in governance and Administration through the constitution. Reservetion was the mechanism introduced by Babasheb uniting the mulnivasis under the nomenclature of S.C.,S.T.,and O.B.C, who were earlier divided into several thousand castes by Brahmanical system. The educated Mulnivasis from among these classes have been leading the movement of liberating the mulnivasis which fundamentally resulted in altering the social, economic and political equations of the country. Today the situation has come to such level that unless the Mulnivasi Bahujan people are divided, the Arya Brahmins will not be able to comfortably rule the country. Therefore, Brahminis who are presently ruling the counting are making the policies to divide the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj and make them fight among themselves, by destroying the spirit of constitutional representation through reservation. Many state Governments have proposed sub-categorisation of reservation in their states and recently the central Government also has preparred the Bill which will be tabled soon in the parliament. Hence, this topic has been kept to alert the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj about the conspiracy of the ruling classes and the damage it may cause to the liberation movement of the Mulnivasis.

Speakers:

Dr. K.S. Chauhan (Senior Lawyer Supreme Court,New Delhi),

Prof. Sudhakar Mohod (Social Thinker,Maharashtra)

Prof. Devnarayan Singh Yadav (HOD,Law Dep. Lucknow Univ.)

Dr. Chandu Maiske (National President, BAMCEF) shall preside over.

 Off-shoot wings Session

Date: 30th Dec. 2008 (Tuesday) | Time 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Subject: Responsibility and action program of Off-Shoot wings of BAMCEF for social change.

In a democracy, rights can be won by mass movement through democratic struggle and the mass movement can be built by organizing different sections of the society by penetration of ideology. Not that Phule-Ambedkarite ideology is not known to Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj, but still we are far away from the critical mass that is required to launch a democratic struggle to snatch the lost rights. The reason is that on one hand we are not yet organized for bringing social change and on the other hand if at all we organize, it is fragmented organization under the political leadership who have always used the masses to meet their selfish ends as per contingencies of the situation. Therefore unless we organize the different sections of the society under the leadership of social organisation we cannot build strong movement to achieve our rights. We have therefore decided to launch different offshoot wings for different sections of the society such as students, youths, ladies, teachers, pensioners etc., ensure penetration of Phule Ambedakrite ideology in them and thus through them organize the society at the grass root to build the mass movement. In this background, the responsibility and action program of offshoot wings will be discussed.

Speakers:

Mr. U.N. Shingade (National President BAMCEF PensionersWing)

Dr. P.D. Satyapal (National President BAMCEF Teachers Wing)

Dr. Manisha Bangar (National President Mulnivasi Mahila Sangh)

Mr. Sumantai Tirpude (National President BAMCEF Mahila Wing)

Mr. Sanjay Ingole (National President Mulnivasi Sangh)

Mr. Dhanajay Zakarde (National President BAMCEF Culture Wing)

BAMCEF TEACHERS WING

APPEAL

 

Need for Teachers Wing

BAMCEF has decided to organize Indian society under Phule Ambedkarite ideology. However it has its limitations to reach entire society as there are specific issues relating to each section of the society. It is therefore decided to have a focused approach to organize teachers under Phule Ambedkarite ideology to coordinate, nurture and promote teachers from Mulnivasi Samaj at all levels of education in order to make them conscious of their historical responsibility of establishing a democratic society. This is an extended arm of BAMCEF to organize teachers from elementary level to post-graduate level (Teachers, Lecturers and Professors) to foster their interests.

What is BAMCEF

Mulnivasi Bahujans (OBC, SC, ST & converted minorities from these sections) are the original inhabitants of India who have been the victims of the Brahmanical system. This inhuman system of social stratification, referred to as Caste system, was imposed as a result of Aryan invasion and the subsequent degradation of the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj. They have been graded and degraded into thousands of castes resulting in mutual contempt and hatred and thus were relegated to physical and mental slavery for thousands of years. The Arya brahmanical forces form a minority of the population but still hold the reins of power and command over resources in such a manner that the Mulnivasi people are economically exploited, culturally degraded and socially subjugated to work for them. In spite of fifty seven years of Constitutional provisions, brought in by the relentless struggles of our forefathers (the Phuley-Ambedkarite movement for social change), only a small section of Mulnivasi bahujan samaj acquired education and economic advancement, but are culturally treated as inferior members in the society. It was therefore decided to organize employees from SC, ST, OBC and converted minority under the banner of BAMCEF.

          The goal of BAMCEF is to awaken and liberate the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj culturally from the hegemony of the brahmanical forces and establish an egalitarian society based on Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. BAMCEF has launched and is promoting a matrix of sister organizations to address educated employees among the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj, working in different fields.

Role of Education    

Education plays an important role in the development of individual and human society. An educated person can distinguish what is good for him and good for society. He can guide the society to establish a society based on liberty, equality, fraternity and justice. However after 58 years of constitutional provisions we have failed to achieve the Constitutional objective to establish a society based on equality, liberty, fraternity and justice. It reflects on the type of education being imparted in our country and intellectual honesty of educated class.

Educational Scenario

India spends only 3.8% of GNP on Public education as against 7% by Canada. Even an underdeveloped country like Namibia spends 9.1% on public education. 46% population in India aged 15 years and above is illiterate as against 22% in China. Large numbers of children are engaged in labour works. 47% of 10 crores children enrolled in schools get dropped at primary school level itself. Rural literacy rate is 56% as against 80% in urban areas. There is a vast difference in quality of education between rural and urban areas. Female literacy rate in India is 48% as against 78.5% in Namibia and 79.5% in Indonesia, respectively. About a quarter of the population is yet to get access to primary school and only 6.8% of the population got access to higher education so far. About 21000 schools are still run by single teacher. There is a great lack of infrastructure. Student- teacher ratio is quite high. The expenditure on education, instead of rising, is dropped from 20% in 1995-96 to 18% in 2007-08.

Why this apathy towards education despite promises since 1969 that 6% GNP shall be spent on education? This is because large section of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj resides in rural India. The Brahminal forces which are controlling power through legislature, executive and judiciary do not want to implement the Constitutional duty of providing socio-economic justice to the deprived section of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj. With this background, it becomes clear that the role and responsibility of Teachers from Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj is quite high. Wherever they are, they must discharge their duty sincerely and help Mulnivasi students with quality education.            

Teachers and the society

          The role and reach of teachers in any society cannot be under estimated as they educate and shape the thought process and behavior of generations of youth who play a prominent role in changing the destiny of the nation. It is not an exaggeration to say that teachers act as beacon lights of social change. Education system is the bedrock of the society. The quality of education sets the boundaries of what a society can do, and what its people, both individually and collectively can achieve. However many of the teachers coming from the Mulnivasi background are unaware of their actual cultural position due to lack of social education, which place them in the paradoxical situation of serving the goals of the enemy.

The brahmanical forces have been successful in negating the attempts of incorporating social change pedagogy in the curriculum and school culture. On the contrary they have been pushing ahead the pogrom of revival of so-called Vedic learning using modern science and technology. They are reimposing Brahmanical culture as infallible and divine on Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj to maintain status quo.

Problems of Teachers in General

          Teachers at all levels in general and school level teachers in particular, are over burdened as many posts are kept unfilled. Teachers at primary level are assigned government and other responsibilities relating to various schemes periodically. Therefore they are not in a position to devote to their work. However they are made responsibility for the poor performance of the students. The salary of teachers is invariably delayed. As a result they have to bear financial constraints which ultimately affect their family and therefore they are not in a position to concentrate on teaching. Although teaching is a noble profession and has nothing to do with the politics, entire academia has been politicized leading to affiliation of Teachers’ Associations to political organizations. Therefore, lot of politics is being played in transfers/postings of teachers. Sincere teachers are invariably victimized.            

Problems of Mulnivasi Teaches

          A Mulnivasi teacher enjoys relatively better status compared to an ordinary Mulnivasi person. However he is also subjected to subtle discrimination with regard to hiring of rental accommodation in villages as well as in some urban centers. They are reminded of their social position and avoid social intercourse with them. At associations level also Mulnivasi teachers are relegated to insignificant positions. Political connections and economic status plays a vital role in deciding leadership at each level in the Associations. The Mulnivasi teachers are invariably victimized in transfer/posting matters. Mulnivasi teachers hardly have any say over content of education. As the content of syllabi and the social reality mismatch, the Mulnivasi teachers often get confused and defocused. Furthermore, Mulnivasi teachers are assigned other responsibilities such as Wardens, In charge of mid-day meal scheme, administrative positions in colleges and universities which ultimately affect their performance in teaching. They are hardly encouraged in the research work.

The Mulnivasi teachers are in an unfortunate condition of being divided and spread out among several organizations with narrow and immediate goals without having a broad cultural perspective. The damage done due to this condition is two fold:

(1)      Their energies have not been properly focused on the larger goal of cultural emancipation; they are unconsciously promoting the interests of their adversaries due to their ignorance.

(2)      They are not in a position to realize that their own career problems like promotions, transfer etc., are due to the manipulation by the brahmanical forces. In fact, the insecurity and powerlessness among the Mulnivasi teachers is the result of the calculated Brahmanical design forcing them to undertake jobs like Contract Teachers, Vidya Volunteers, Contract Lecturers, Teaching Associates, Teaching  Assistants etc. It is the result of the convergence of two enslaving forces- Capitalism and Brahminism.

They are not realizing that the root cause of all their problems lies in the brahmanical system, but are wasting their energy in fighting the problems arising out of the system. The situation can be remedied only by uniting the Mulnivasi teachers under the banner of BAMCEF Teachers Wing.

The Mulnivasi Identity

          We have been organizing society under the banner of BAMCEF as SC, ST and OBC, which are the identities assigned by our adversaries in their own interest. These identities do not bring about emotional integrity amongst different components of organization. We were therefore in search of an identity which shall give us a sense of pride and bind us with an emotional integrity.

          Mulnivasi identity is one such identity which not only binds us with emotional integrity and gives us sense of pride but also provides us with the powerful weapon to combat Brahminism. Mulnivasi identity draws a clear line of demarcation between indigenous people and Arya Brahmins. It is a homogenizing and unifying cultural force of the fragmented Mulnivasi people.

The present initiative

At this juncture, there is a need for a large body of intelligentsia which has the capacity of things and commitment to the cause and at the same time clear about the Brahminical strategy. The Mulnivasi teachers are the right section of the society to launch a cultural war against brahminism.

It has therefore been decided to organize teachers as separate wing of BAMCEF to harmonize and organize Mulnivasi teachers at all levels of education. The specific objective of BAMCEF Teachers Wing is to bring them under one umbrella, fix their goals, strengthen their base and use their strategic position as teachers of society as channels of propagation of Phule-Ambedkar ideology and undertake the problems of teachers at all levels with the respective Governments and if need be launch mass agitation.

       It is imperative on the Teachers to realize their social responsibility and join this movement to establish a society with “One man – One value”.

 

Join BAMCEF Teachers Wing! Strengthen Phule-Ambedkarite Movement!!

 

Jai Bheem!  Jai Mulnivasi!!


Yours in Phule-Ambedkarite Mission,

 

Dr. P. D. Satya Pal

National President,

25th (Silver Jubilee) National Convention of BAMCEF at Nagpur

Posted by bamcef on September 30, 2008

25th National Convention
 

2008 – Nagpur
 

APPEAL

 

25th National Convention – A Time for Introspection

This year BAMCEF is holding its 25th (Silver Jubilee) National Convention. From the beginning BAMCEF had dedicated itself to the goal of social change, which our emancipator had laid down. Over the past three decades we had concentrated specifically on two aspects i.e. first, awakening the society on the issue concerning our condition – thereby exposing the conspiracy of Brahmanical System and second trying to organize all caste components who are the sufferers of social system. On both the fronts BAMCEF had succeeded to the extent that the power structure and Brahminism forces have acknowledged our existence as a pressure group of Phule-Ambedkarite movement. BAMCEF salutes the dedication, sacrifice and efforts of all its activists who had toiled to achieve this level. With this achievement one can certainly say that BAMCEF is going ahead in a right manner towards its pre defined objective.

Our impact on the power structure had compelled the Brahmanical forces to redesign their strategies so as to keep control over the social system. On the other hand BAMCEF had succeeded in motivating various caste components of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj to release themselves from the grip of Brahmanical forces. Such process of action and counter action is bound to continue in more severe form in the days to come. To cope up with the changing situation we need to indentify and incorporate stronger inputs to design the strategies to combat Brahminism.

Identity Crisis

While trying to achieve the objective of social change, on one hand we had been exposing the conspiracies of Brahminical forces to awaken the masses and on the other trying to unite different caste components of 85% Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj. Our experience of past three decade revealed that the identity crisis is a major lacuna in keeping the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj united. Hence to forge the homogenous unity amongst different castes we had rejuvenated Mulnivasi identity. Accepting the common identity can only be the means to march in the direction of achieving the objective of social change. Having made definite dent of Mulniwasi identity in the society, our enemy has also felt its impact to the extent that their identity and presence in this country has come under scrutiny.

Strengthening the Movement

It can be seen that in post Ambedkarite era, nobody had laid emphasis on building and strengthening the movement. All the Phule-Ambedkarite organizations which emerged were mainly out of reactive response. The speed with which society responded to the reactive issues had also calmed down with equal speed. Such response could not build the organization and unity in the society. Building the movement with such response will remain only a wishful thinking. On the other hand movement building process is very slow and the result cannot be seen immediately. Only its presence and impact can be felt, on power structure which can be observed in the society. Over past three decade BAMCEF has succeeded in training the human resources, dedicating and committing them towards the objective of social change and building the movement. BAMCEF had never diverted or diluted this objective. In the light of this background and on the eve of 25th National Convention, the activists of BAMCEF will be reaffirming its commitment in further strengthening Phule-Ambedkarite movement. We look forward for awakened response from the society.

Inputs To Achieve the Objective

The objective of social change is not small and simple. It was more difficult during the time our emancipators, who had led the movement. Their efforts, to the larger extent, had softened the constraints, which had spoilt the social system. But the challenges which are prevalent today, needs to be dealt with more determination and dedication. The situation becomes still more challenging because the counter revolutionary forces in the society are continuously watching our move and re-designing their strategies. The task therefore, in front of us is twofold: first to strive for achieving the objective of social change and second to understand the motives and moves of counter revolutionary forces operating in the system.

To handle both the tasks successfully one need to understand and estimate the amount and type of inputs we have to mobilize to sustain the movement. Trained human resources, financial resources, tapping human potential spread across the globe, aligning the young generation towards the movement, institutionalizing the ideology and awakening the masses for the cause all these aspects need to be evaluated not in terms of changing socio-economic situation and the means to deal with.

25th National convention at Nagpur

Holding the 25th National Convention is a milestone not only for BAMCEF organisation but is so for Phule-Ambedkarite movement. It indicates the consistency towards our commitment for social change for all this period. It is in this respect this becomes an historical event for Phule-Ambedkarite movement. On such occasion our feeling drives us to identify the place of historical importance in the movement. Nagpur has been the stronghold of Ambedkarite activities. During Babasahebs time Babasaheb himself had given importance to Nagpur for launching his revolutionary move. Nagpur therefore, is dearer to us when we think of laying this milestone. We derive inspiration and strength when the idea of hosting the 25th National Convention comes to our mind. During Babasahebs time Nagpur had witnessed the revolt against Brahminism and the people of Nagpur had supported Babasaheb wholeheartedly, BAMCEF is also fighting againstBrahminism. Fighting against Brahminism is a means for social change. The struggle of BAMCEF is for social change. We need to overthrow Brahminism and bring in social change. Hence we have decided to hold this historic event i.e. 25th National Convention in Nagpur.

In this endeavor we appeal to all the people of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj to extend all cooperation with time, talent and money and participate in this event to register your presence in laying the mile stone.

Yours in Mission,

Educate!                 Organise!!                 Agitate!!!

MULNIVASI MELA

On The Occasion of Birthday Celebrations of
Rashtrapita Jyotirao Phuley and
Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar
500 Mulnivasi Mela’s & 500 Symposiums
are being organised all over the Country

5000 years ago the Indus Valley Civilisation was the leading civilization in the world. This civilisation founded by the great aboriginal race ‘Nagas’. The Indus Valley civilisation was flourishing in the areas of Indus River and its 5 dimensions in the entire North-West of India. Out of several civilised cities Mohanjodaaro and Harappa were established at the banks of Indus (Sindhu) River. Consequently this civilisation came to be known in the world as ‘Indus Valley Civilisation’ . The excavationary evidences have now established beyond doubt the this civilization was a symbol of moral values, humanity, equality, fraternity, liberty, prosperity, planning and scientific thoughts. Aryans being an uncivilised, barbarious and nomadic race destroyed the Indus Valley Civilisation and imposed upon Indian aboriginal race, the inequality & hatred based varna system ultimately dividing into 6000 castes to enslave them.After innovations in this history, BAMCEF decided to spread the Mulnivasi culture, among the masses. To achieve this goal BAMCEF has been organizing Mulnivasi Melas since 2005. During ceremonious salutation to our land of Sindhu civilisation, the great ‘Indus River’ by organizing inaugural function at Laddakh on 8th April 2007.

Caste identity is our real problem

The Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj had forgotten its respectable identity and accepted the caste identity imposed upon them by the Arya Brahmins and started deriving pride in the caste identity. They are ready to fight and even die for the sake of one’s caste and in the process strengthen the caste system ignorantly. Brahmanism is the root cause of all the ills of our society. Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj fight Brahmanism, in isolation by organizing them as a caste group and are making sporadic efforts without any success. It is essential to make an united efforts to fight Brahmanism. However caste identity is the major obstacle in our salvation. If we want a everlasting solution for our problems, then people belonging to all Mulnivasi castes should unite under a common identity i.e. Mulnivasi Identity and form a separate class to fight for our rights.

Efforts of our Great Forefathers

There has been a history of conflicts between the Arya Brahmins and Mulnivasis from ancient times and our great forefathers used appropriate identities to unite the Mulnivasis. Tathagat Gautam Buddha had united the Mulnivasi people under ‘Bahujan Identity’ discarding the Varna Identity. In Maharashtra, Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj had united the Bahujans of Maval territory under the identity of ‘Mavale’, which means the original inhabitants of Maval land. Instead of organizing any single caste, Rashtrapita Jyotirao Phuley had united us under the class of ‘Shudra’ and ‘Atishudra’ while Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar had brought in the Mulnivasis, who are disintegrated into different communities, under the ‘socially and educationally backward classes’ comprising of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other Backward Castes and strived to unite us. According to the prevailing times and situations, our great forefathers had strategically used suitable social identities and organized us. However, our enemy has countered the movement of our forefathers using the same identities and therefore those identity does not suit in the present situation to run the movement. Therefore to fight Brahmanism taking cue from our great forefathers, we have to adopt a suitable strategy to forge a common identity and bring unity amongst Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.

Our Original Identity

In order to forge unity among different castes, BAMCEF is rejuvenating our original identity, i.e. the ‘Mulnivasi Identity’, which is the common identity that our great forefathers had time and again used for our deliverance. This identity has the potential to remind us of our glorious past and dignified history and would enable us to reestablish our culture and reorganize Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.

Cultural Invasion of the Arya Brahmins

The basis of our Mulnivasi Culture is the principle of equality, liberty, fraternity, justice and generosity. As a result of the invasion of the Arya Brahmins, the Culture of the Mulnivasi Bahujans was infested with their culture of falsehood, injustice, debauchery, deceit, and immorality, which was accredited by the Brahminical Shastras and smritis. Mulnivasi brethren those who had fought against such debased culture were either brutally killed or burnt alive. They have destroyed our cultural evidences, memorials, universities and burnt the libraries and established the Brahminical social system based on graded degradation through Manusmriti.

Uniqueness of the Mulnivasi Culture

Mulnivasi culture is based on fraternity. Despite disintegration into 6000 castes, the Arya Brahmins could not destroy the culture of Mulnivasi Bahujans. Even today distinct culture of Mulnivasi people can be observed in their life style, dietary habits, languages, dialects and traditions despite disintegration in several castes. Our cultural moorings are expressed in different aspects of social life. Even today, in spite of being separated into distinct castes, the surnames (Kul) and totems of Mulnivasis are similar and distinguishable from the traditions of Arya Brahmins. Our festivals are entirely different from the festivals of Arya Brahmins. The patriarchal culture of the Arya Brahmins relegated an inferior status to women. On the contrary, the original culture of the Mulnivasis is matriarchal which gave honorable place for women. Our forefathers have engraved the philosophical edifice of equality, liberty and justice in our mind to establish fraternity in the society. They are values of life for us. In contrast, the philosophy and way of life of the Arya Brahmins is based on inequality, hatred, contempt and deceit. During medieval period the saints of the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj such as Sant Kabir, Guru Nanakdev, Sant Ravidas, Sant Tukaram Maharaj and other teachers supported the cause of Mulnivasi rulers like Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj who initiated their battles against Brahmanism and the social system based on inequality. Mulnivasi Bahujans gave him their wholehearted support keeping aside their distinctions of caste. Even during modern period, the people of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj extended their united support to the movements led by Rashtrapita Jyothirao Phule, Rajarshi, Chatrapathi Shahuji Maharaj, Periyar E.V. Ramasamy and Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar. It became possible only because of their innate philosophical values of fraternity, liberty, equality and justice. It is the unique quality of the Mulnivasis. Being the original inhabitants of this land, the Mulnivasi Bahujans are well convergent to geographical boundaries of our land. The extent of love and affection of the Mulnivasis towards their motherland is immense.

Only Alternative – Strong Organisation

The root cause of all problems faced by the Mulnivasis is the caste identity entrusted upon us by the Arya Brahmins and their immoral culture. To counter this, it is necessary to build a strong organization based on Phule-Ambedkar ideology and Mulnivasi identity and unite the Mulnivasi Bahujans as a uniform society under its aegis. It is only through such organization, we could erase the inhuman culture of the Arya Brahmins and reestablish the honorable Mulnivasi culture. BAMCEF has taken up this task and in order to strengthen the Mulnivasi culture special programs are being organized this year on the occasion of birthday celebrations of Rashtrapita Jyothirao Phule and Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar.

The Program of BAMCEF

Since 1992, BAMCEF has been spreading the concept of Mulnivasi identity which was used by our forefathers and conducted several programs to make our society understand and realize the importance of Mulnivasi identity. Several seminars and campaigns were organized by BAMCEF till 2006 on Mulnivasi identity on the occasion of Phule-Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations. This year, during Phule-Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations of 2007, BAMCEF has earned a great response. Therefore during 2007 it has planned to organize 500 Mulnivasi Melas & 500 Symposiums in 24 states throughout the country. In these Melas, cultural, literary and social activities, painting, skits and dramas, Kavi-sammelans, elocution and several other exhibitions of Mulnivasi culture will be organized. In addition to the above activities, Mulnivasi cricket tournaments, Mulnivasi indoor sports events, Mulnivasi youth and women conventions and other such activities, which bring awareness among our people about the history of Mulnivasi society will be organized. The success of these activities will lead to re-establish the movement of our forefathers. As you are aware, these activities require adequate financial resources, we request our Mulnivasi Bahujans Brothers to support this nation-wide program contributing financially and participate in thousands to make it the success.

Jai Bheem! Jai Mulnivasi!!
