Jati – a weapon of Brahmanism
‘Jati’ is a weapon created by Brahmins. Bhahujan samaj think Jati itself as samaj. Marriage within Jati has become fundamental identity. If marriage takes place outside jati then there is no Jati. Fundamental fact is that Jati is a weapon of Brahmanism. Jati is not samaj. Babasaheb Dr. Ambedkar says that jatis must be annihilated.
Why does Babasahed not say that society must be annihilated? Babasaheb does not say this because earlier people needed society, they need society now and in future too people will need society. Why? Because society is good idea, and as compared to society, Jati is bad idea. Society protects human being and Jati splits society and it eradicated society’s fundamental duty to defend. ‘Jati’ is one such a dangerous idea. Jati split society and that’s why in India instead of Sociology Jatilogy must be taught. If children are taught Jatilogy in syllabus then it will be possible to change people’s mindset against jati.
Brahmins has deployed various types of ways in order to make us mulnivasis slaves. In all these ways Brahmins used jatis as their chief weapon. Brahmins created Jatis. They gave Jati identity to people. We mulnivasis take pride in these jatis that we have not created.
