Hate Campaigns of the Genocidal Casteist Mafia

Pin It


For decades, hate-driven individuals and groups (masquerading as social justice activists) have found the centuries-old “manusmriti” a veritable treasure house to abuse a section of the Hindus, Hinduism and the nation itself and to secure supremacist rights privileges, burying the anti-discriminatory Article 15(1) of the constitution in the process. But in selectively quoting from the “manusmriti” even a commonsense approach is not adopted. One wonders whether there exists any grey matter in their heads.

Of the many English-translated prescriptions of “manusmriti” found on their websites, let us consider only one –

“…If a (low-born man) mentions the name or caste of a superior revilingly, an iron pin, ten inches long, shall be thrust into his mouth (red hot).”

To begin with let us consider the very instrument “an iron pin, ten inches longthat is to be thrust into the mouths of the supposed “low born”. The word “pin” has several meanings. Did “manu” mean a “a rolling pin” with which we roll chapathis or did he mean the pin that is commonly used to attach sheets of paper? That is not clear. Since the people responsible for “thrusting” the pin were not clear either, probably that is why, we have never heard of a “pin” having been thrust into the mouths of an alleged low-born!

Now, let us suppose that the “pin” in question is the one with which we attach sheets of paper. Was such a pin available in the market, centuries ago? Is such a pin available in the market today? Has anyone thus far seen such a “pin”? We indeed have seen iron pins one to two inches long, but ten inches? Surely it would have to be specifically manufactured!!! Since such a pin has not been available, probably that is why, we have never heard of a “pin” having been thrust into the mouths of an alleged low born!

Another reason why there is no recorded case of a “pin” having been thrust into the mouth of supposed “low born” is that “Manu” forgot to specify the pin’s “thickness”! Since, the thickness was not known, naturally, the gentlemen incharge of “thrusting” did not know which pin to thrust and probably that is why there is no evidence of any pin (that too ten inches long) having been thrust into the mouths of …men!!! Maybe if “manu” were to be reborn, one could get to know the thickness!!

Now let us consider the quotation itself “…If a (low-born man) mentions the name or caste of a superior revilingly, an iron pin, ten inches long, shall be thrust into his mouth (red hot).”

The “red hot” portion is added as an afterthought, that too in brackets! Probably, “manu” wrote it that way!

The quotation actually conveys the impression that “an iron pin, ten inches long” should be thrust when the mouth is “red hot”!!! Did “manu” mean pre-heating to make the mouth “red hot”? Probably, his disciples did not understand the concept of “pre-heating” and that is why a ten-inch pin of indeterminate thickness was never thrust into the mouths of any men!

Now let us come to the issue of who are the “low born”. There is no definition of who are the low-born or the high-born. But there are some clues available. Traditionally, the scriptures have been used to launch hate campaigns against the Hindus, who may be Brahmins, Banias etc. One should therefore conclude that they are not the alleged “low born”. Needless, to say, neither the Brahmins nor the Banias are proclaiming themselves to be either “low born” or “high born”.

Now let us consider the issue of an alleged “low born” mentioning the name or caste of a superior “revilingly,”.

The hate-brahmin movement started nearly a century ago in different parts of the country and is growing ferociously with each passing day. There are thousands of web-sites that glowingly eulogise such anti-social genocidal movements. The media and various other so-called “progressive” elements instead of condemning and feeling ashamed of such irrational hate- campaigns, approvingly refer to such movements as “anti-caste” movements.

During the past one hundred years all kinds of illegal, anti-constitutional and derogatory ‘labels’ have been invented and pasted on the hapless victims of the so-called anti-caste movements, some of which are “upper caste”, “forward caste”, “oppressors”, “schemers”, “wily”, “Brahmin dog” etc. (Considering the above, the word “reviling” is surely a mild word!)

Such sustained campaigns and the supremacist rights secured from such campaigns has (a) denied lakhs of innocent citizens of their right to education and livelihood; (b) driven them out from their homes and the nation resulting in the loss of their citizenship; and (c) caused demographic changes, like the one witnessed in Kashmir.

And who has carried out such “reviling” and “revolting” campaigns? It is best left unsaid…Needless to say, the concept of “low born” is a self-proclaimed one.

But, despite one hundred years of such sustained “atrocities” (euphemistically called “anti-caste” movements, which actually made “caste” the only basis of governmental functioning), there is no evidence that “an iron pin, ten inches long” has been thrust into the mouths of any “low born man”!!!

Yet the vicious campaign continues.
