26th National Convention


Dates : 25th
to 28th December 2009


Place : Chandigarh


APPEAL

Dear Mulnivasi Bahujan friends,

It is a reality that mere formation of an organization does not ensure an accomplishment of its mission. To accomplish a mission its objectives needs to be pursued continuously and regularly in the form of different programmes and activities. Annual conferences and conventions of the organization becomes an important part of such programmes and activities. Keeping this understanding in mind BAMCEF has developed a culture of organizing a National convention regularly at the end of the year. The burning issues related to Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj are discussed and deliberated in National conventions with the view to give proper direction to the Mulnivasi Bahujan masses so as to build the required public opinion. This year on the occasion of 26th National convention following points will be the focus of the discussions and deliberations.

Instituationalization of Organization

BAMCEF during last 31 years had made organized efforts to establish it as an Institution to achieve the goal of social revolution set by our forefathers of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.  In this process the organization had succeeded in establishing a unique identity of Phule-Ambedkarite Movement in the Indian society. This has also produced an institutional leadership on large scale. Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj has contributed a lot to bring this success. We know that this success is an out come of the continuous process of institutionalization of BAMCEF. Now we need to strengthen the same with more efforts.

Anti Mulnivasi – Brahminical Education Policy

The alien Aryan-Brahmins,  (the ruling caste) in the country are making efforts to enslave Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj by depriving them from higher education through conspiracies of privatization and commercialization of education, opposition to the representation in higher education, rise in the educational fees, arguing for creamy layer and making crooked  policy of reserving seats for forward caste in public institutions by referring to reservation of backward classes; and on the other hand in the name of literacy mission, campaign for education to all (sarva shiksha abhiyan) and education loan schemes for weaker sections they are basically trying to fool and mislead the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj. All these things are a part of organized conspiracies hatched by them.

THE ISSUE OF CASTE CERTIFICATES

The ruling castes are notoriously engaged in implementing the conspiracy of complicating the process of issuing caste certificates to the Backward Classes (SC, ST, OBC) and not accepting the caste certificates issued by one state in the other state of the country. This matter is related to a larger conspiracy to deprive Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj from availing its Constitutional rights. This has been observed that the high caste (Ruling caste) are producing the false caste certificates and availing the benefits of reservation policy. However instead of punishing them under the I.P.C (Indian Penal Code) the procedure of issuing caste certificates to backward classes is being made more and more complicated. Thus this act of the government is nothing but to protect the criminals and punish the real eligible candidates. Secondly, it is a constitutional rights of all the citizens of India to reside at any place for livelihood but by denial of accepting claims of backward classes  for representation in other states other than their paternal states by the government amounts to indirectly snatching away the constitutional rights of the backward classes.

REPRESENTATION IN JUDICIARY

India is a democratic republic having a system of representative governance. However in its basic institutions namely the legislature and executive (bureaucracy) the system of representation by reservation for Mulnivasi Bahujans is in practice. But there is no system of representation through reservation in Judiciary. Therefore whatever legislations are being enacted through the parliament the same are being nullified with the simple orders of Brahminical Judges dominating the Supreme Court and other courts in the country. Consequently instead of justice an injustice is being handed over to the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj from the supreme court and other courts in the country. On the basis of these facts we have concluded that without having representation to the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj in the judiciary, justice can’t be expected for them. Thus a solution to this serious problem is needs to be sought.

THEME BASED ON MULNIVASI IDENTITY

It is well known fact that Indus valley civilization is one of the oldest and greatest civilizations of the world. The historical facts have proved that alien Aryan Brahmins had destroyed the Indus valley civilization. By the destruction of Indus valley civilization the Mulnivasi Bahujan were degraded and enslaved. Therefore re-establishing the lost indigenous culture and civilization is very much needed. We are of the firm opinion that, by organizing the original inhabitants (Mulnivasis) of India with the help of their collective identity as “Mulnivasis” we can re-establish the Mulnivasi Culture, civilization and bring back the progress and prosperity to Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.  BAMCEF is making multi dimensional efforts to make it happen. In this sequence we had decided to organize our 26th National Convention based on the theme – “Mulnivasi identity.”

UPROOT BRAHMINISM THE SPIRIT OF INEQUALITY

We all know that Brahminism is the root cause of all kinds of inequalities, communal and castist hatred, unjust social and economic policies, attacks on human dignity and status, integrity and unity of nation. It may appear before us in the form of Brahminical Communism, socialism, Hinduism, Nationalism, Linguistics, regionalism, racism or discrimination but the main source of all the inequalities in India is Brahminism. Therefore Babasaheb Dr. Ambedkar had stated “Uproot Brahminism the spirit of inequality”.  Hence BAMCEF has made this statement as an agenda of first priority in all of its activities including the program of National Convention.

Keeping these points and their contexts in mind the 26th National Convention is being organized. Therefore we earnestly appeal to the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj to whole heartedly contribute in form of physical, financial and intellectual participation in this convention to make it a grand success.

Jai Bhim! Jai Mulnivasi!!

Yours in Mission

Dr.L.J.Kanhekar

National General Secretary

Date : 28th September,2009 (Ashok Vijayadeshmi)

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.

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

 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.

 (Lunch Break 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM)

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)

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

BAMCEF’s TEACHERS WING

Posted by newjournalist on October 11, 2008

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,

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,

 

Dr. L. J. Kanhekar

National General Secretary

National Convention of Mulnivasi Mahila Sangh and BAMCEF Women Wing

Posted by newjournalist on September 29, 2008

National Convention of

Mulnivasi Mahila Sangh and BAMCEF Women Wing

 Date : 18th – 19th October 2008 (Saturday – Sunday)

Venue:

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…

Posted by bamcef on April 30, 2008

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.”

Sathio,
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.

(1) Gandhi.
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”
Ben Johnson

Sathio,
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.”
Edmund Burke

Sathio
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.”
Bertrand Russell
Jai Bheem! Jai Mulnivasi!!

Yours in liberation struggle
