Development of Jatis after Counter Revolution
Jati identity that is associated with Mulnivasis bhahujan samaj is not our fundamental identity. By dividing our people into 6,000 jatis our people are not only made untouchables but also criminal tribes. The meaning of criminal tribes is that in order to feed ones stomach one need to kill people, cut people and this was their life and source of livelihood. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar wrote at one place that how great is that culture that generated crores of shudras, crores of untouchables, crores of adivasis, crores of criminal tribes. This is such a great culture. The factory would be such a great factory that has produced such degraded products. The issue of identity that is linked with Jati, it is developed after counter revolution; meaning ‘Jati’ was created after counter revolution.
