On 15th August, there was just a power transfer from British people to so called upper caste Brahmins of India.

Did anything else change for Dalit-Bahujans? No. They were suffering in British rule and they are still suffering. What you think?

Freedom of mind is the real freedom. A person, whose mind is not free though he may not be in chains, is a slave, not a free man. One, whose mind is not free, though he may not be in prison, is a prisoner and not a free man. One whose mind is not free though alive, is no better than dead. Freedom of mind is the proof of one’s existence. – Dr. Ambedkar

On Subramanian Swamy and His Article on Islamic Terrorism


There is no nation of Indians in the real sense of the world; it is yet to be created. In believing we are a nation, we are cherishing a great delusion. How can people divided into thousand of castes be a nation? The sooner we realize that we are not yet a nation, in a social and psychological sense of the world, the better for us. – Dr B R Ambedkar

Last week, world’s number one university, Harvard, decided to exclude Janta Party’s leader Subramanian Swamy’s course from the Harvard summer school course.  This decision came after his hateful article in Daily News and Analysis (DNA) that appeared on 16th July,2011 under the heading of “How to wipe out Islamic terror”. (DNA has removed this article but you can still find the same article on many other sites) His removal from the course started the debate over the freedom of speech so, I decided to search his article and decide what is right and wrong. I won’t say his article is controversial but hateful because it’s full of hatred towards Muslims and minorities.

Few hateful parts from the article are:

The first lesson to be learnt from the recent history of Islamic terrorism against India and for tackling terrorism in India is that the Hindu is the target….

Hindus can’t accept to be killed in this halal fashion…

(I believe not only Hindus but people from every religion get killed in bomb blasts not only the Hindus, bombs can’t differentiate who is Hindu and who is not. Can they or might be Subramanian Swamy have figured out such a weapon, about which he will be happy to write in next article for sure? This statement is as flawed as it could be.)

Islamic terrorism is India’s number one problem…

(What about caste discrimination, hunger, poverty, corruption, unemployment, farmer suicides, Dalits being assaulted everyday etc? Are these in the list of Subramanian Swamy or he has forgotten about Malegaon blasts and Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur?)

If any Muslim acknowledges his or her Hindu legacy, then we Hindus can accept him or her as a part of the Brihad Hindu Samaj (greater Hindu society) which is Hindustan….

(I think Subramanian Swamy might know that why people converted to Islam and who are the Muslims of India. Muslims of India not other than the Untouchables (Dalits) of India, untouchables who converted to Islam just to avoid the brutality of Hindu Caste System. Almost 80-85% of Muslims are low caste people. I wonder why Subramanian Swamy hasn’t written against the caste system. If he might have written then Muslims may have some options before conversion.)

India that is Bharat that is Hindustan is a nation of Hindus and others whose ancestors were Hindus. Others, who refuse to acknowledge this, or those foreigners who become Indian citizens by registration, can remain in India but should not have voting rights (which means they cannot be elected representatives).

(I believe Subramanian Swamy might also know that Hindu is a new term coined recently, how it can be ancient, I wonder. He has a dream of Hindu-Rashtra, which is much more dangerous than the terrorism.)

While suggesting solutions to blasts, killings and terrorism he says:
