Waman Meshram, National President, Bharat Mukti Morcha, 2009 Speech
Transforming issue into non-issue
We must keep in mind that the problem that needs solution had to be put on the agenda first. Brahmins campaigns that Hindu-Muslim problem is biggest problem of India because they want to suppress the problem of Varna problem. Those people want to suppress the problem of Varna-Jati-Untouchability. These people do not want to make this as an issue. They do not want to make the issue of Varna-Jati-Untouchability subject of discussion. If it is made the subject of discussion then it has to be given solution and ruling castes does not want to solve this problem but keep it continuously unresolved. In order to keep the issue of Varna-Jati-Untouchability unresolved it is not brought on the agenda; they do not want to make it a subject of discussion. That’s why they are campaigning that currently nation’s biggest problem is the ‘Hindu-Muslim’ problem; Muslim people are enemies of Hindu people and Hindu people are enemies of Muslim people, this means issue is transformed into non-issue, and non-issue is transformed into issue. Falsity is made an issue and main issue is kept suppressed.
