Let’s read thousands of years old history. And find out who exploited the Dalits??
Do India really a historically racist society and exploited Dalits as told in history books of the world, or is it a masterstroke of miscreants to show India in awful lights? Lets’s see the other side of the story.
Emperor Shantanu married Satyavati, the daughter of a fisherman. His son became the king, so Bhishma did not marry. Bhishma vowed to remain childless for life.
Satyavati’s sons later became Kshatriyas, for whom Bhishma remained unmarried for life. Would they have been exploited? Ved Vyas, who wrote the Mahabharata, was also a fisherman but became a Maharishi. He used to run the Gurukul.
Vidur, who is called Maha Pandit, was the son of a maidservant, became the General Secretary of Hastinapur, Vidur Niti, written by him, is a great book on politics. Bhima married the forest dweller Hidimba.
Shri Krishna was from a family of milk businessmen. His brother Balaram used to do farming, always kept the plow with him. Yadav has been Kshatriya, ruled many provinces and Shri Krishna is revered by all, gave a book like Gita to the world.
Vanvasi Nishadraj used to study with Ram in Gurukul. His son Luv Kush studied in the Gurukul of Maharishi Valmiki, who was a forest dweller and was the first dacoit.
So it is a matter of the Vedic period, it is clear that no one exploited anyone, everyone had the right to education, anyone could reach the post according to his ability. The characters were only on the basis of work. They could be changed to what is today called the Division of Labor in Economics.
Talking about ancient India, the Nanda dynasty ruled by Magadha, the largest district of India, was a barber by caste. The Nanda dynasty was started by Mahapadmanand, who was the king barber. Later he became the king, then his sons too, later all were called Kshatriyas.
After that, the Maurya dynasty ruled the entire country, which started with Chandragupta, who was from a peacock-rearing family.
And a Brahmin Chanakya made him the emperor of the whole country. The Mauryas ruled the country for 506 years.
Then the Gupta dynasty ruled, who ran horse stables and traded horses. The Guptas ruled the country for 140 years.
Except for the 36-year rule of Pushyamitra Shunga, 92% of the time, in ancient times, the rule in the country belonged to those who are today called Dalit backward, so where did the exploitation come from? There is nothing exploitative here either.
Then begins the time of Medieval India, which is from 1100 to 1750 AD, during which Muslim rule was mostly there for most of the time.
In the end, the Marathas emerged. Baji Rao Peshwa, who was a Brahmin, made the Gaekwad, a cow herder, the king of Gujarat, the Holkar of the shepherd caste, the king of Malwa.
Ahilya Bai Holkar herself was a great devotee of Shiva. He built many temples and Gurukuls.
Meera Bai, who was a Rajput, her guru was a tanner Ravidas and Ravidas’s guru was Brahmin Ramanand. There is no point in exploitation here.
Dirt started in the country from the Mughal period and things like the purdah system, slave system, child marriage start from here.
From 1800-1947 there was British rule and from here casteism started. Which they did under the policy of divide and rule.
In the book “Cast of Mind” by British officer Nicholas Dark, you will find how the British increased casteism, untouchability and how selfish Indian leaders politicized it in their own interest.
In the history of these thousands of years, many foreigners have come to the country who have written books on the social condition of India, such as Megasthenes who wrote Indica, Fahien, Hue Song, and Al-Biruni among many others. No one wrote that anyone was exploited here.
Yogi Adityanath, who is not a Brahmin, Mahant of Gorakhpur temple, Uma Bharti of backward caste has been Maha Mandleshwar. A birth-based caste system was brought to weaken the Hindus.
So be proud to be Indian and oldest culture Sanatan Hindu and save yourself and others from the conspiracy of hatred, malice, and discrimination. We Indians never discriminate against people. It is not our core values, but the poison injected by 1000 years of deliberation from the outsiders. Social engineering and foreign invaders tried to divide and rule the land of Golden Bird India, so it is the payback time and to regain the core values and make our holi motherland Viswa Guru once again. Let’s build the world-class University Line Nalanda, Takshashila, Oudantapuri, Vikramshila so that students from all over the world will come to feel the power of knowledge once again.
Start from the education and knowledge base all will fall in line.
