You are cordially welcome to attened 1st National Convention of BMACEF Teachers’ Wing
Posted by bamcef on September 30, 2008
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
Dr. L. J. Kanhekar

National Convention of
Mulnivasi Mahila Sangh and BAMCEF Women Wing
Date : 18th – 19th October 2008 (Saturday – Sunday)
Bharat Scouts and Girls Guide Hall, Savarkar Marg,
Shivaji Park, Dadar (W), Mumbai-28
All Mulnivasi Women are sufferers of the three tier oppression of caste system, poverty and patriarchy. But the solidarity of Mulnivasi women has received a rude shock from the unjust Brahmanical social order. They now stand divided into many castes, and as closed groups distanced from their co-sufferers. But essentially the problems of the ST, SC, and OBC women are same; the severity (of the problem) depends upon their position in the caste ladder (hierarchy).
The ST women (at the most bottom rung) are worst sufferers of inhuman indignities. Hunger, disease, starvation, is the way of life for them and their children. Mass trafficking, prostitution, homelessness & depraved existence on streets is the norm.
The status of SC women is no different either. The attachment of notion of impurity to their being and their emergence as a group resisting oppressive forces of patriarchy and caste has exposed them and their children to unimaginable atrocities and ignominies. The once warrior clan women have been reduced to the level of animal and no better.
The situation of OBC and MBC women is even more pathetic. Even when SC and ST women are seen sporadically putting a brave front and releasing themselves from the shackles of bondage, the OBC women stand totally unaware of the enslavement in the Brahmanical thought and culture. Not knowing the real nature and cause of their oppression they cling to and strengthen the Brahmanical system. Merged in deep slumber they are oblivious of the dangers of the present time. In absence of a strong movement in the OBC groups they are directionless and out of pale of education, employment, a dignified living and future for their childrens seems bleak.
The National statistics (National Sample Survey) shows that in villages the OBC and MBC women, are devoid of land and any source of income, they are in huge debt and their men are being driven away to suicide. In each and every “basti” of cities, the OBC and MBC women live in abject poverty surrounded by filth, squalor and are engaged in most low paying jobs and flesh trade.
In stark contrast, all talks regarding the progress of women in this country, their ever increasing participation in education field their presence in art, culture and jobs which earlier were the preserve of men pertains to upper caste women only. It is only the upper caste women who have greatly benefited in the last 60 years. The mulnivasi women are nowhere near them. There is a clear cut demarcation line between the upper caste women and mulnivasi women. The former under the garb of women unity and feminism are out to fool and use mulnivasi women for their own caste interests. They try to keep the Brahmanical system alive and have never revolted against the system. Instead they have engaged themselves in all superfluous, superficial, rehabilitative activities, akin to striking a stick on placid water which only creates a few ripples, never going to the root cause of caste system and patriarchy. The upper caste women have never risen in revolt against Brahmanism. Hence we do not seek their support or participation but believe in creating our own strength.
BETRAYAL OF THE CONSTITUTION
It is true that the greatness of any nation can be gauged by the status of the women. If this principle is applied to India, Indian society cannot qualify as being a civilized progressive society. The status of women is so pitiable that the Indian society can aptly be labeled as primitive society. Whereas in the Constitution of India provision for upliftment of women are made in article 15(39) it is seen that the spirit of the Constitution is not reflected in the society.
Since 1950 (after the transfer of power from British to Congress) 60 yrs have lapsed but there is a rapid downfall in the position of women.
The percentage of Mulnivasi women reaching up to higher education is a dismal 5%. The drop out rate from school is as high as 60%. They are grossly under-represented in the job sector. They form the most unorganized sector. They are nutritionally malnourished and anaemic. In absence of nourishment they are inflicted with many diseases. One in every 10 child in their family dies of want for low cost treatment. The health related expenditure of their family is second most common cause of debt and 70% of the families of Mulnivasi women cannot afford treatment for their children.
This state of affairs spells betrayal of the Constitution by the people whose responsibility it is to see that it is implemented in letter and spirit. The mulnivasi women are victims of callous indifferent and hateful attitude of upper castes who are in power in politics, economic and religious sphere.
ROOT CAUSE OF OPPRESSION- CASTE & PATRIARCHY, SPRING FROM BRAHMINISM
Matriarchial system was the way of life in Mulnivasi culture before the invading Aryans (Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas) destroyed it systematically by adopting methods of coercion, by instilling fear, by creating legends and by declaring it as word of God.
Both the instruments of suppression i.e., caste system and patriarchy (male domination) has its origin in Brahmanical tradition, festivals, stories, epics, legends and most importantly the scriptures right from Vedas to the Puranas, which are held, sacred by the women. Sacredness prevents revaluation of its value, once sacred – always sacred and this phenomenon has lead to the perpetuation of the abominable system.
IGNORANCE OF THE MULNIWASI WOMEN HAS TO BE UPROOTED
Not aware of the real nature and motive of religion and traditional notions, Mulnivasi women out of there ignorance are seen to be clinging, strengthening and preserving the very system which degrades them.
The ignorance of Mulnivasi women has to be removed. Our renaissance leaders like Jyotiba Phule, Savitri bai Phule, Periyar Ramasami, Narayan Guru and Babasaheb Ambedkar all strived and struggled their entire lives to remove the ignorance. But a lot more has to be done. The magnitude of the problem is of such proportions that the efforts are highly inadequate. To come out of the despondency and dependence a nationwide movement of the mulnivasi women along side the existing Phule-Ambedkarite movement run by BAMCEF is required.
NATIONAL CONVENTION FOR NATIONWIDE AWAKENING & PROTEST
The National Convention will prove be a milestone in the history of struggles of Mulnivasi women. It is for the first time since 1950 that SC, ST, OBC women will be coming together as a united force. It will blow the bugle of emancipation of Mulnivasi women. It will herald a new era.
The Mulnivasi Mahila Sangh activists are already working in areas of education and creating awareness on relevant issues. However a Nationwide Campaign will be launched to address the following issues urgently.
1. Free and compulsory education to Mulnivasi women upto graduation and higher budgetary allocation for education in the Annual Budget. Privatisation of education has affected the Mulniwasi Bahujan Samaj the most. It will not be surprising that if left unfettered the next generation will be largely illiterate. The activists will establish mass public contact to pressurize State and Central Government to implement various schemes and programmes throughout the country.
2. Free Health Services: It is the responsibility of any welfare state to make health care affordable and mostly free. On the contrary, it is seen that India’s health care system is the most privatized in the entire world (78%). The state funds only 2% of the health expenditure. Corporation funding is a mere 3% and NGO funds only 0.3%. Rest comes directly from the citizens. Instead of strengthening the Public Health System, Government Hospitals and Medical Colleges, the Govt is allowing a free hand to the corporate sector. For eg: In Andhra Pradesh the Congress Government under the project -Rajiv Gandhi Arogya Shree is giving money from government treasury to all corporate hospitals. We will expose these ruthless and merciless power brokers and create a mass awareness. The doctors and health professionals from Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj will be actively working on this front to strength Health care system & ensure good health in all stages of life from birth till old age.
3. Movement against SEZ: Cleverly camouflaged under the term “economic development”, the SEZ’s are virtually proving to be “special elimination zones’ – eliminating the lives of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj. Large amount of fertile cultivable land – the only source of livelihood, is forcibly been taken away from Mulnivasi Bahujan Society. The Mulnivasi women and the children are starving and men being led to suicides. The same land is given away at throw away prices to real estate owners and pseudo industrialist as lease for a life time. Employment is provided to handful as daily wage earners adopting the “hire and fire” policy with no food or financial security. Mulnivasi Mahila Sangh will actively participate in staging protests against the SEZ all over the country.
4. Women Reservation Bill: The bill is a clearcut conspiracy by the upper castes and their political parties to usurp 33% seats (i.e 81 seats out of total 543 parliament seats) by filling upper castes women in these seats. Surprisingly even the Left Front which proclaims to be working for the masses is against giving any representation to the Mulniwasi women. We will awaken the public in this regard and expose the poisonous fangs of the so called “progressive men and women” from various organizations, and parties.
All the above issues will be discussed thread bare. Information is power and during the two days of the Convention we will empower our women with information.
An all India signature campaign is underway to place our view as regards the Women Reservation Bill wherein we have made it clear that since women constitute 50% of the population, instead of 33%, actually 50% of seats should be reserved for women and 85% representation should be given to SC ST and OBC women within the 50%.
The campaign will culminate in the Convention. Thereafter we propose to give a representation to all concerned at the helm of affairs including the President of India.
We request you to attend the convention in large numbers and strengthen the movement for the liberation of the Mulniwasi Women in this country.
JAI BHEEM! JAI MULNIWASI!! JAI BHARAT!!!

Message to Mulnivasi Valmiki Jatti On Birth Anniversary of Rashtyapita Joytiba Phuley and Baba Sahib Ambedkar
M S Bahal (LONDON)
Co-coordinator BAMCEF, International network
First of all I congratulate and send my best wishes to all Indians Mulnivasis) ,where ever the live in this world,on the birth anniversary of all our Maha Purshans. Bamcef in the month of April don’t celebrate and salute to only Baba Sahib Ambedkar but to all our Mahanpurshans whose great scarifies lead us for freedom.
” To all the poor of my mother land
Who have the power forever.
For whom Ambedkar did stand
Give up poverty, but power never”
I am glad to inform the international oppressed people ( Mulnivasi) of India that since joining as a the members of Bamcef, I have attended and spoken to large number of the Valmiki Community as well.. From the platform of bamcef Hundreds of state convention of Mulnivasi Valmiki (Scavenging Caste) Mukti Samalans are held all over India.. It is a matter of immense satisfaction that “The Valmiki awakening campaign of Bamcef is in full swing”. Though I am unable to attend many Samalens time to time, but I always feel personally with them all the time and my heart and my mind is always with them… First of all, I congratulate all my Krantikari sathi for a worthy cause and send my best wishes to all of you where ever you are in this world .I hope you will have a grand success in taking the message and light of Phuley-Ambedkar ideology to dark quarters of Valmiki jati and drive out the false illusions of devilish thought of Mr. Gandhi. It is time to let the clean air of new thought sweep through the dwellings of Valmiki and rejuvenate some new hopes. Our fight is not for material gains, but for human dignity and self-respect. We want our share of political and economic progress proportion to our population. We have seen the fall of Slavery, Apathies, fascism and fundamentalism time has come to see the back of Casteism as well, which in intensity is for more sinful and tyrant than above regimes It doesn’t matter how powerful or wicked the regimes may be!, it has to end when people have decided to stand against it and confront it. If we didn’t wake up to out duties and stood up to the challenges of the day the history of India will register us as the most coward. Careless and week people who ever lived on this earth. There is no need for me to brief you about the sad effects of casteism. I know today the Baniya-Brahmin is very powerful, but surely not invincible, if Baba sahib can beat the hell out of them single handily, certainly we can also do so. Remember Baba sahib devoted his entire life to struggle for our liberation from inhuman bondage and the draconian clutches of the caste system. It is this devilish system, which robbed our ancestors for centuries and enslaved them like animals. All we have to do is sit together and work together. It not the money that brings the change it the will and determination of people that bring the change.
For the benefit of those who don’t know me, I would like to introduce myself briefly. I come from a Bhangi family from Distt. Jallandar Punjab. In my childhood I have gone through many insults humiliations, pains, suffering and depravation as many of my people are even going through today after 55 years of Independence have elapsed. I used to clean streets of my village with my mother where many of my classmates and teachers used to see me, with whom used to sit for studies. For them passing insulting remarks were fun but for me it was torturous. These Childhood insults made me stronger and determined to fight and fight this evil system wherever it exists and in whatever form it exists. Now I live in London and, for last 25 years engaged in the spread of Phuley -Ambedkar ideology internationally especially in the midst of the Valmiki jatti. I have studied Baba Sahib Ambedkar many times over and I have realised and believe that if any body have fought and worked for my freedom and equality- he is nobody, other than the great Baba Sahib Ambedkar. His life long struggle is directly responsible to provide me the equal opportunity to rise and rise to the level of any other Indian. I am strongly of this opinion that given the equal opportunity and facility to any Valmiki Jatti person, he is able and capable of rising to any level. You all know the history of India and fully aware of the appalling and despicable conditions of our ancestors, where they merely existed to stay alive. They were forced to take any menial job to survive. Therefore it is our duty to study and absorb the history carefully and with responsibility. Because our history have some great men and women who have come before us and their characters, achievements and deeds have transformed the character of the whole society. Such great people have immense power for good or for evil. Modem Indian history records two such personalities by the names of Dr. Ambedkar and Mr.Gandhi.
Ambedkar who fought for our good and Gandhi who did every thing evil.
Another thought which puzzles me is that, How we fell to this inhuman level? How we came to be treated worst than animals? Why we accepted deprivation of education every human right even human dignity? Why such a vast number counted in millions accepted such a demeaning status and for such a long time? How the brain washing of such a magnitude was carried out-for, which no parallel in human history can be found? These are the issues for our daily discussion as far as today’s topic is concern that where our Mukti (Valmiki Jatti emancipation) lies? Where do we go from here? There have been other oppressions in this world since the Evolution of man on this earth. Each community in trouble has produced great men to deal with their oppression and we had our great men too. Out of many men and women, name of Baba Sahib Ambedkar stand’s out. He pitied us, cried for us and died for us. Unfortunately my community has failed to recognise his sacrifice and services he rendered for my people. This I feel is the root cause of our downfall. Today we are the most visible untouchables; most hated and disliked community in India. I hold Mr.Gandhi and congress responsible for these obnoxious, unthinkable social conditions under which we are groaning today. As far as the Valmiki Jatti is concerned would Mr Gandhi have not made his phoney trips to our Basties (colonies), our social conditions be so doomed today. I believe Mr. Gandhi was the biggest cheat and most evil man India ever produced after Manu. Let us see what Baba sahib said,” Mahatmas came and Mahatmas gone, but untouchable remain untouchables.” He further added,
“Hindus (Ruling class) can be ranked among those cruel people whose speech and deed are two poles apart. They have this Ram on their tongues and a knife under their armpits. They speak like saints and act like butchers. They utter God is omnipresent and treat their countrymen worst than animals.”
Weather we are kept there by congress and Gandhi or BJP deliberately or we are there by our own ignorance ,time has come for a change. Let us not waste any more time, let us not drift down any further from where, it will be more difficult to recover .Let us return to the viewpoints of Baba Sahib Ambedkar and it is not too late. Ambedkar is a revolution, Kranti, which has the power to dismantle citadel of casteism and can meet all challenges to enable us to counter all hated in the society toward us and can provide us a way out. Let me briefly remind you what Baba Sahib Ambedkar Did for us and said for us, otherwise you will think I am a devotee of Baba sahib Ambedkar and devotee has duty to praise his idol. Let me tell you that I am a devotee of Baba Sahib I am a solider of his Kranti; to me he was an Intellectual colossus, from who I have drawn all my strength, guidance and compassion. On his advice I am paying back to society as much as I can. I worship knowledge more than I worship anything. I am indebted to his dynamism, wisdom, services and struggle and I will pay back with the last drop of my blood. I feel the day my Valmiki brothers and sister will come to this terms that they have to solve their problems themselves and no body he means no body is coming to their help.
If any body ask me a question as to why I love and follow Baba Sahib Ambedkar, my unequivocal answer is that he transformed me from animal to man and provided principle solution to my all social, economical, political and religious problems. He studied in depth these problems and pin pointed the root cause and the culprits. After having higher education abroad Dr. Ambedkar came back to India and took up his contracted job with state of Baroda. Where he met the disgraceful behaviour by his colleagues that his shadow remained polluting, let alone his touch. He was denied accommodation because of his caste. It was this confrontation, which made him rebel against the oppressive system. Because there was a man within him which refused to accept this social conditions. Today we the, Chandalas, Dassas, Chuhras, Bhangies, Valmiki call us by any name were the sworn enemy of the Aryan from the days of first invasion of India. Since that period Brahmin is trying to control us and bring us into his fold on his terms. This is also the definition of a slave whose time. and movement were determined by his owner. The free man was one who regulates his own movement and determines how he should spend his time. Today we are slaves in modern way no visible chains no restrictions, but mentally controlled.
No right to education,
No right to property,
No right to wear arms
These restrictions broke us away from the main streams of society and made us known Bhangies (The Broken People). Calling us by different names only watered down the bitterness we the Bhangies hold against Brahmins. Valmiki is the name we horriedly accepted, with this we accepted all terms of Brahmins and drifted away from Baba sahib’s Kranti. Today we became only obedient to God’s commandments laid down in their so called holy scriptures weather it suits us or not. Brahmins have managed to confuse our community and accommodate the caste system with a deadliest blow, which proved to be so effective. Therefore the responsibility fell on the shoulders of BAMCEF to do the wrong -right by awakening the Valmiki community. Let us wake them to the change in attitude, which they have forgotten that we were the rebellions against Brahmins and casteism. I have observed in the last few years the change is taking place, but pace is slow. This years old illiteracy years , years old slavery will take time, we have to double trouble our efforts. With justice on our side we will win and win very soon.
Since the day of invasion, Brahmins have been designing their religious scripts their deities in accordance to maintain his supremacy. Gandhi was another designed personality and conspiracy of Brahmins. His visits to Bhangi colony was a compete brain washing of our people and was design to keep us engaged to the profession of safayee Karmchari and not allowing us to take up other professions. He was terminated soon the purpose of Brahmins was fulfilled. He was murdered because of the fear that he may become menace to Brahmins would his consciences rose to the harm he has done to Sc, St, and Obc. Ours is a country of costume worshipers. Any one besmears his body with ashes and adorns the same with a loincloth; he can easily become a Mahatma. Mr Gandhi put up similar show, which made it easier for him to miss led, the Valmiki jatti masses. On the other hand baba sahib Ambedkar bore modern clothes. It was long afterwards that Dr. Ambedkar embraced Buddhism. Mr.Gandhi had much earlier refused to regard him a Hindu in a letter addresses to Mr. Santram BA secretary general of Jat Pat Todak Mandal (society for the eradication of caste system). In answer to his letter which was published in Harijan, Gandhi wrote-” in case Varans (four fold division of Hindu society) forms, a part and parcel of such Hindu outlook. As explained what Hinduism is and if an individual doesn’t care to subscribe to Varans, how can then he call himself a Hindu? in case your organisation refuses to accept the authority of such religious scriptures then your organisation also stands on the same footing as Dr. Ambedkar does and hence neither your organisation can be considered a Hindu organisation nor Dr.Bheemrao Ambedkar a Hindu.” And today we see the slogan “Say with pride that you are a Hindu” how forged and hypocritical it appears. I feel this to misguide and to draw us to Hinduism of their benefits. As today we have democratic system in India, which mean Government of people, for the people, and by the people. Therefore if Brahmins have to remain a ruling class they need our support in the form of votes. The right to vote for which Baba Sahib Ambedkar fought all his life and then was conferred on us to become a ruling class ourselves. That is one reason the ruling classes do not want the Valmiki community to follow Baba Sahib Ambedkar. Sathio time has come to realise this and realise now. Otherwise!
“Sun that set, may rise again;
But if we loose this light
T’s with us perpetual night”
We have lost a lot with our ignorance, but there is still lot left to save. Today we have a mountain against us law and order judiciary political agents, political parties, and the whole ruling classes. Still we an organisation like BAMCEF, which is, all India based organisation, consisting of good preachers, thinkers and intellectuals of immense capacity to bring about the launch of our own liberation. I hope and request to all my Valmiki jatti people to join hands with this organisation and attend their cadre-camps. Looking of their commitment and sincerity and the volume I am convinced our freedom is not faraway. Our fight is not for a day, for a month or for a year, ours is a continuous fight as our enemy is changing his strategy ,and misleading us in false directions.
“People crushed by law have no hopes
but from power. If laws are their enemy,
they will be enemies to laws; and those
who have much to hope and nothing to loose
will always be dangerous, more or less.”
Freedom is a very powerful weapon on top of the strength of unity is invincible. Let us work in this direction and pool in all our recourses. Those, who can contribute financially, should do so, those who can contribute physically should do so and those who can contribute intellectually should also do so. Our struggle should not be for one caste, one state one community but for the capture of political power for all Mulnivasi (indigenous Indians). Political power is key to all our problems and rightly Baba Sahib Ambedkar standing in the garden of our parliament house is constantly reminding us to capture that temple of power. Because all decisions of our future and the future of our generations are made there. Baba Sahib Ambedkar also informed us what to do and what not to do? Hoping my Valmiki jatti people will let the right thought of Ambdekar prevail and win the day for them.
I have learned from Gautam Buddha ,Joytiba Pheley and Baba Sahib Ambedkar that when they are challenged and humiliated by the supermacy of Brahmins in the Indian Society,they didnot call for any Superpower from Gods and Goddests they sat and tried to annalise the reasons for that and then rebel with their al;l power they have to delmolish that evil syatem. That is all I offer my all Mulnivasi Brothers and sisters that donot look at any superman or God for your salvation what look at your own strngth and ability and use it collectively to will all what we have lost.
” Without rebellion, mankind would have stagnate and injustice would be irremediable.”
Jai Bheem! Jai Mulnivasi!!
Yours in liberation struggle

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!!
