The booklet narrates the agony of Dalits, Muslims and the Backwards. Despite being Hindus, Shudras were ostracized from Hindu religion and rituals. Amassing wealth and weapons by them was considered a sin. Besides Varna, loose lifestyle is responsible for the low status of the Shudras. Even during the Mughal period, when relationship between Hindus and Muslims was affable, Dalits remained pariahs. Britons were the first to acknowledge Dalit communities in the egalitarian fold. Hindu-Muslim riots and Dalit harassment in different parts of the country, testifies to the Hindu supremacy in India, which is a threat to the survival of Muslims and Dalits. Hence, secularism, an integral part of Indian constitution, stands defeated. Hindus are assiduously working for the edifice of ‘Ram-Rajya’ in India. Dalits, Backwards, and minorities (Muslims, Christians, and Sikhs) need to unite against Hindus and transform passive, submissive attitude into dynamic, aggressive and assertive thoughts and actions. Dalits can reach their rightful place by closely adhering to the Buddhist ideas and Ambedkar’s principles.
