Waman Meshram, National President, Bharat Mukti Morcha, 2009 Speech
Offence is the best defence
There is one wrong habit amongst Muslim intellectuals and Muslim leaders. When Brahmin attacks these intellectuals then Muslim intellectuals respond to these Brahmins. That way there is no need to give any answer to the questions of Brahmins. Brahmins says that Muslim takes four-four wives. If we keep four women or ten women what does it matter to you? We earn, we look after them, and then how are you troubled? Our reply has to be in this way. Offence is the best defence is the rule in science of warfare. According to warfare science victory belongs to those who follow the policy of ‘offence is the best defence’. The false propaganda that Brahmins are involved in get it in front of public. There is no need to answer questions of Brahmins. From the medium of Gandhiji the Brahmin – bania combination that got formed that combination is still intact. This combination today is campaigning that Hindu-Muslim riots took place. The reality is that there has never been a riot between Hindus and Muslims. If riots did not take place then why do these people campaign that Hindu-Muslim riots took place? Because it is Brahmin-Bania media that’s why they campaign this way, they wish to give religious color to the riots.
