Repression of Brahmins
'Smash Brahmanical patriarchy' poster shows how Indian journalists, artists, left-ideologues etc are clueless about real complexities of Brahmins. They have only one agenda to spread hate and lies about Brahmins.

On Sunday, 18 November 2018, a picture of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey posing with a poster (designed by controversial caste artist Thenmozhi Soundararajan) reading 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy' went viral presented by another controversial Dalit activist, Sanghapali Aruna.

What followed was a collective condemnation of Twitter CEO Dorsey for spreading hate and communalism, by a large number of social media users. There were people criticizing Dorsey, branding him a racist and a bigot. Majority of them questioning, very nicely, what 'Brahminical Patriarchy' was or asserting that such a thing did not exist. Some of them even called to reject the micro-blogging platform. These left-activists have no courage and character to say, 'Smash Muslim patriarchy' or 'Smash Christian patriarchy' or 'Smash Dalit patriarchy'.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was here as part of a PR campaign. He had to meet everyone, from politicians to celebrities, but the visit was hijacked and managed by anti-Hindu left-wingers. The visit became a disaster of unparalleled magnitude. Soon enough, the company has to give a clarification that the picture was from a "closed door discussion" and the disowning the placard "not a statement from Twitter or our CEO".

Fearing the backlash and losing the user base, a company as big as Twitter would dash out to put out the fires. The people in attendance at the time when the photograph was taken were all left-leaning journalists. This includes activist Sanghapali Aruna, a Dalit activist who presented Dorsey the hate poster at the centre of the controversy; film critic Anna MM Vetticad, who first shared the photograph on her Twitter; journalists Rituparna Chatterjee and Barkha Dutt; and of course, the employees of Twitter India.

Actually, by attacking the so-called Brahminical Patriarchy, they were trying to safeguard the patriarchy of their own community. Although, it was a closed-door discussion with Dorsey, how all the left-winger manipulated their entry, was a mystery. The aim of the visit of a foreign company Twitter was very intriguing that was to better understand the challenges for women and vulnerable minority communities for India especially on the eve of the 2019 Lok Sabha election. It was just defaming the nation as if women and so-called minority communities are treated badly in India. The discussion and topics were completely hijacked by this group and they tried to manipulate the discussion with Twitter, their personal experience, as journalists, activists, women and minorities, and raise problems connected to the routine harassment and trolling we face on the platform.

The discussion was completely communal and divisive in nature and they wrongly tried to malign the nation and Hindus to claim that Dalits, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Ravidassias, Buddhists and other religious and cultural communities face the systematic violence. It was wrong and hate mongering by them. Leaving a few isolated incidents, In India, Dalits, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Ravidassias, Buddhists and other religious and cultural communities etc are safe and they enjoy unparallel very special privileges. Now, Twitter India claims that it was a "private photo". It was a grave mistake on the part of Twitter India to allow the Dalit castes activists and left-oriented women in the discussion. Action should be taken against this serious lapse. Twitter India has handled its meeting very poorly.

In India, Dalits are among the most powerful communities and enjoying the extraordinary benefits. It is wrong to equate Caste to India with Race to America and other Christian countries. Catholic Christians have completely wiped out the Black-Aborigines-Dalits from America, Canada, Austria etc countries. Whatever is left there, they are still treated very badly. Similarly, in Islamic nations and Muslim dominated areas like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Kairana, Mallapuram, Malda, Murshidabad, Mewat etc places Dalits, Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Ravidassias, Buddhists and other religious and cultural communities etc are treated very brutally and they have wiped out all the Dalits from their land.

Nevertheless, Dalits and these activists have no courage to utter a single word for the victims. In India, these activists have a very divisive agenda, which is sponsored by Church, Christian missionaries, Islamic nations and left- wingers. There is no Brahminical Patriarchy and is very unfair and entirely wrong slogan. There is no upper caste hegemony and in the Indian context, feminism is not required. Like privileged Whites and Muslims, Brahmins and upper castes, do not have any hierarchy. The wilful distortion of the slogan Brahminical Patriarchy that is unfair and untruthful. Dalits have never faced and oppression and atrocities in India. They have been living peacefully and comfortably for thousands of years. The anti-Hindu church, missionaries, Islamists and left-wingers have fabricated this term Brahminical Patriarchy. Dalits never faced any bias of caste and misogyny.

This debate about Brahminical Patriarchy not at all needed. Dalits have been enjoying very special benefits in India. They have been granted quotas in education and employment, even on zero per cent marks they are selected, and on the other hand, Brahmins face very tough competition in every sphere of life. Even after securing very high marks, they are rejected on account of caste-based reservation. What angers the nation lies by Twitter and cried for being tone deaf on caste bias towards Brahmins. These activists have misused the platform. This is also in sharp contrast to Twitter's strong stand to be against any race and community. On the contrary, Brahmins — Irrespective of their political or caste affiliations — are actively threatened. All called on Twitter to step up and not yield to bigotry, disinformation and bullying and to address in serious terms the problem of trolls threatening the life and liberty of scores of Brahmins.

It is good that Twitter has responded with truths and sensitivity to a backlash against a divisive and racists poster saying "#SmashBrahminicalPatriarchy. "Brahminism is the spirituality based integral and holistic view of life that is naturally all-inclusive". The caste system conversation is alive because of Congress, left-wingers, Urban Naxals, crypto-Christians, fake Dalits, Palits (rich Dalits) etc. They won't let it die. Most of the Twitter users didn't take the Twitter CEO's support comments against Brahmins in a good way, and most of them questioned why he chose to target only Brahmins. All accused him of inciting hate among people in India.

This poster has the potential of causing communal riots at a time when several States are going to Assembly Elections in India," tweeted Sandeep Mittal, who is an IPS officer."...Actually, it is (sic) a fit case for registration of a criminal case for attempt to destabilize (sic) the nation," he added.

TV Mohandas Pai, former finance chief of software exporter Infosys, tweeted, adding that inciting hatred against any community is wrong. The nation was outraged against the CEO, condemning him of an offensive against an "ethnic group" and perplexed why only Left-wing individuals were invited to the meet.

Responding to the anti-Brahmin poster, Former Supreme Court Judge, Markandeya Katju, said, " 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy' is an anti-national slogan. It divides India into caste lines and so is part of a divide and rule policy of our enemies..." Brahmins have been repressed for centuries. Brahmins were the very first community to be targeted when Islam came to India. –Mahmud Ghazni massacred thousands of Brahmin priests when he raided the Somnath temple. The foreign invaders killed thousands of – Saraswat Brahmins – in Kashmir and Gandhara Desa-regions-(part of today's Afghan-Pakistan included) area. There is no Saraswat Brahmin in these regions now.

Pundits, the original inhabitants of Kashmir were tortured and driven out of their land in Kashmir by Islamic terrorists trained in Pakistan. Genocide of Kashmiri Pundits has reached its climax with terrorism succeeding in 'CLEANSING' the valley of this ancient ethno-religious community. To escape persecution, more than 500,000 Kashmiri pundits had to leave their homes in the Valley and out of that; more than 50,000 are still languishing in uninhabitable refugee camps in Jammu and Delhi.

Militants killed many pundits and raped their women. Dr Ambedkar, the maker of the Indian constitution, quoting Muslim historians, says the first act of religious zeal by Mohammad bin Qasim, the first Arab invader, was circumcision of Brahmins.

"But, after they objected, he put all above the age of seventeen to death." During invasions, forced conversions was a regular tyranny. During Mughal periods, thousands of Brahmins were beheaded. Tipu Sultan massacred thousands of Mandyam Brahmins in Melkote on Deepawali. Indian history is full of misinformation and most of it was intentional. One such piece of lies is that Tippu Sultan of Mysore was a benevolent king, despite the fact he forcibly circumcised Hindus and forced Brahmins to eat beef. Mohammed Ghauri also massacred a large number of Brahmin priests when he plundered India. The period of Aurangzeb witnessed one of the strongest campaigns of religious violence against Brahmins in the Mughal Empire's history. Aurangzeb re-introduced jizya (tax) on non-Muslims, and Brahmins were the first target of his repression. He forcibly converted Brahmins to Islam and destroyed thousands of Hindu temples.

Aurangzeb massacred 150,000 Brahmins and their families in Benares, Ganga gnat, Haridwar, etc…It is said that he made a mountain of skulls of the Hindu Brahmins and their children. Aurangzeb has gone on record, making a pile of Brahmin "janeoos" (holy thread) and making a bonfire of them (after decapitating innocent Hindu Brahmins who refused to convert to Islam. This prosecution of the poor and hapless Brahmins continued under the British and Portuguese. They were crucified in Goa, by the Portuguese, vilified by British missionaries, and morally crucified today, by their own brothers and sisters.

When the Portuguese came to India, St. Xavier wrote to the king of Portugal, his patron, "If there were no Brahmins, all pagans would be converted to our faith." He hated them with a hatred that evangelists alone are capable of. He called them a "most perverse people." Brahmins became a persecuted people. Thousands of Konkani Brahmins (Gaud Saraswat Brahmins) were persecuted and left Goa. They lost everything. But Brahmins, who historically dedicated their lives for the sake of dharma and the welfare of the society, are still persecuted in modern India for their falsely alleged sins of the past.

Tamil Nadu is another state like Kashmir, where Brahmins are systematically oppressed, even on minor issues like vandalism of caste leader Periyar. They earn the extra privileges, etc - Brahmins don't get anything extra. They just work hard, with integrity and purposefulness. They are persecuted by society because they are Brahmins because merit is not recognised. Singapore, the US, UK, Australia and Canada benefit from this stupidity in India - the brain drain is evident. Brahmins still are persecuted from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, they were mugged robbed raped and killed every time someone wanted to make up for their own lack of credibility.

After the murder of Mahatma Gandhi, there was a massacre of Brahmins which was much more bigger than the Sikh Massacre of 1984. In Maharashtra so-called lower caste Dalit people, Dalit Mahar and Muslims joined hands and killed a large number of Brahmins. Both Muslim and Mahar Buddhist wanted to propagate their religion using violence and killings. There were anti-Brahmin riots in Maharashtra, especially in the 'Desh' belt of Kolhapur, Solapur, Satara, Sangli and Pune. Godse was a Maharashtrian Brahmin, a mass anti-Brahmin madness engulfed many parts of Maharashtra. This is also in sharp contrast to Twitter's strong stand in favour of women and marginalized communities in other countries. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey should have rebuked and condemned the makers of the hate poster 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy.'
