Organiser on Ambedkar: Repeating a Big IIT-M Lie

The Hindutvavadis have been desperate to co-opt Ambedkar as a saffron icon. But, as an editorial in their mouthpiece, Organiser, justifying the Ministry of Human Resource Development-foisted "derecognition" of the Ambedkar-Periyar Study Circle at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, reveals, they cannot tolerate his radical views. Ambedkar had a difficult relationship with the Indian communists, but he did not disagree with the goals of Marxism. Ambedkar also made clear his critical views on Hinduism. It is therefore far-fetched for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to claim that Ambedkar was an anti-red and pro-saffron personality.

Whither Justice?

Justice is a far cry today. The judicial process has been hijacked by the wealthy and the powerful. Witness the course of Salman Khan's "hit and run case," or the net result of J Jayalalithaa's "disproportionate assets case," or, in sharp contrast, the situation of a wheelchair-bound professor who took up the cudgels on behalf of the oppressed, confi ned to an anda cell in Nagpur Jail, unable to get bail.

Deconstructing 'Ambedkar'

Ambedkar's samata is not samrasata and his world view is not the neo-liberal, social Darwinism that it is being made out to be.

The Holy Cow

The ban on cattle slaughter threatens the livelihoods and ways of life of vast numbers of people--mostly belonging to the so-called lower castes--engaged in the production, distribution and consumption of beef.

AAP as a Start-up and the New 'App'

The Aam Aadmi Party is quite like a technology start-up that gives established giants a run for their money with its agile business model, nimbleness and ability to innovate. Will it create the new 'App', the new democratic paradigm that people are longing for?

Saffron Science

The space given to pseudoscience of the Hindutva variety at the Indian Science Congress must be viewed as part of the ominous process of all-round saffronisation that is presently underway.

Ghar Wapsi

Most converts to Islam and Christianity, being from the lower castes who had converted to escape the yoke of caste bondage of Hinduism, would be reincarcerated into the hellhole of Hinduism which their forefathers strove to escape.

BJP's 'Hindu' Model

The Sangh Parivar had better understand that their "Hindu" model is never going to work. The more they drive their supremacist project, the more they would alienate people.

Back to Monkey Tricks

Are the many incidents of what seems like the mischievous political behaviour by representatives of the Sangh Parivar mere monkey tricks or do they point to the suicidal instincts of the Bharatiya Janata Party?
