Islamabad, April 14 (KMS): Every year 14th April is celebrated as Ambedkar Jayanti, Bhim Jayanti or Equality Day in India.
The 14th April 2022 marks the 131st birth anniversary of Dr B.R. Ambedkar, also known as ‘Babasaheb Ambedkar’. Dr B.R Ambedkar was an Indian politician, economist and social reformer known as the “Father of the Constitution of India” who advocated the rights of Dalit communities and led the movement against biased caste system, said a report released, today, by Kashmir Media Service.
It said the day aims to pay tribute to his contributions for the uplift of the Dalits whereas minorities and non-Hindu communities living in India are persecuted by RSS-backed fascist Modi government. In 2021, three hundred incidents of persecution of minorities have been registered in India, it lamented.
The report said under BJP, India has become one of the most dangerous countries for minorities in the world as it has entered a very critical phase of communal strife after the Hindu zealots openly called for genocide of the Muslims and persecution of other minorities through tacit extreme ploys.
It said the President of Genocide Watch, Dr Gregroy Stanton has warned that something similar to the inhumane Rwandan genocide could happen in India if stern action isn’t being taken by India. The Constitution of India recognizes in Article 25 (1) that “all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right to freely profess, practice and propagate religion,” the report maintained.
The report said India’s Dalit community has faced systemic persecution by so-called upper-caste Hindus for ages. “After Anti-Conversion Bill brought in, entire situation has emboldened right-wing Hindu extremists to unleash a reign of terror on the oppressed minorities living in India. However, Indian union is fake and historically made of coercion, annexation and false promise. Indian minorities have seen their future in separate homelands as an impending outcome of a pseudo republic.
