Prosecute Ramdev under SC/ST atrocity act: DSMM

THE Dalit Shoshan Mukti Manch (DSMM) strongly condemns ‘Baba’ Ramdev for his demeaning remarks against the activists and supporters of Periyar and Dr B R Ambedkar, in which he said that the activists and supportera of Periyar and Dr B R Ambedkar are indulging in Vaichaairk Aatankwaad (intellectual terrorism). He was giving an interview to the equally dishonest TV Channel. This is not only insulting to the supporters and activists of Periyar and Dr B R Ambedkar but it is also a calculated attack on the forces of social justice, which are in the long battle to achieve social justice against the exploitation of Brahmanical social order propagated by RSS and BJP.

 Infamous ‘Baba’ and business tycoon Ramdev is the latest in the series to attack the dalits and adivasis and their icons that consistently rejected the theory of Hindutva.

It is a well-known fact that ‘Baba’ Ramdev is an ardent BJP supporter. He has condemned not only Periyars supporters but Periyar himself and he should be prosecuted under the SC/ST act. DSMM also appeal to its cadre and community to join all possible protests jointly against such attacks which are detrimental to the unity of society.
