Saheb Kanshi Ram Ji’s Messages from 16th Jan, 1998 Speech at Roshan Ground, Hoshiarpur, Punjab


Roshan Ground, Hoshiarpur, Punjab, Lok Sabha Elections, 16th Jan 1998

  • Community that doesn’t have representation in the political power, that community is dead.
  • We don’t want social justice, we want social transformation. Social justice depends on the person in the power. Suppose at one time, some good leader comes to power and people get social justice and are happy but when bad leader comes to power it turns into injustice again. So, we want whole social transformation.
  • Till the time we won’t be successful in politics and not able to have power in our hands,  the social and economic transformation is not possible. Political power is the key to success.
  • We don’t want anyone’s share in power or posts but we also don’t want to leave or lose our share.
  • Dalit movement hasn’t picked up yet in Punjab. Even Dalits have not become ready to lead the movement, when will Bahujans become ready?
  • To get the power, there is a need of mass movement, converting that mass movement into votes, then converting votes into seats, further converting the seats into [power at] states, and lastly converting the [power at] states into [power at] center. This is the mission and aim for us. We are still failures at organising mass movement, especially in Punjab. I would urge the people to leave behind the laziness and start working for the movement.

23rd March in Dalit History – 10 Dalits were killed in Haibaspur by Ranvir Sena (militant hindu organisation)


Ranvir Sena (militant hindu organisation) killed 10 Dalits in Haibaspur on the 23 March 1997. They wrote the name of the organisation in blood on the village well before they left. Most of the people Ranvir Sena killed that night belonged to families allegedly supporting Party Unity, a communist group.
