Rights of reservation for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes for Hindus only as per thespirit of Indian Constitution: Alok Kuma

Press Statement

Bangaluru. Oct, 16, 2022

‘The Central Government has appointed a Commission under the Chairmanship of former Chief Justice of India Shri k G Balakrishnan with the terms of reference including to examine

1) The matter of according Schedule Caste status to converted Schedule Caste;

2) Its implications to existing Schedule Caste

‘The notification appropriately notes that it shall require “extensive consultations”

‘The VHP reiterates that scheduled castes are the persons who have historically been deprived on the basis of their castes; while the Abrahamic religions claim to have no caste distinction amongst them and therefore SC reservation cannot be extended to them. For this purpose, VHP shall actively participate in the consultation process before the said Commission to assist it into arriving at the appropriate findings.

In 1950, the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Order was issued making it clear that only Hindu Scheduled Castes would get reservation facilities. Despite this, Christian missionaries and islamic organizations have been making constant efforts for their irrational demands to extend this facility to converted SCs.

We wouldn’t allow to snatch the constitutional rights of SCs, said Alok kumar, the central working president Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP). The converted STs should also not be allowed to continue the rights of resevation guaranteed under the law to STs, he added.

While addressing a press conference in Bangaluru today he said that Dr Ambedkar and many Prime Ministers, including Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, had not acceded the demand to extend benefits to converted SCs. Shri Rajiv Gandhi, Deve Gowda and Manmohan Singh tried to accept this demand, but they had to back down due to the nationwide protests. The Sachar Committee in 2005 and the Ranganath Committee in 2009 had made some recommendations in this regard, but due to their self-contradictions and wrong methodologies, their recommendations could not be implemented.
Christian missionaries and Muslim leadership while claiming social equality in their religions and in the same breath raising this demand with great vigour is evidently self-contradictory.

The judiciary has also rejected their demand every time as illogical and unconstitutional. In the case of “Soosai Etc vs Union Of India And Others” on 30th September, 1985, the Hon’ble Supreme Court had clearly directed that the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Order, 1950 and the amendments made to it were constitutional and this reservation could be given to none else other than Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist Scheduled Castes. In the cases of R.C. Poudyal; Somnath Poudyal; Nandu Thapa; Roop Raj Rai, etc., these
provisions of the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Order, 1950 were considered appropriate and just, he said.

Due to the potential conversion surge and deluge, the peril of demographic alteration in many areas of Bharat will take a dire form. The consequences of demographic change hostile and ill-disposed to national interest are already obvious in many districts of Jammu & Kashmir, Kerala, Bengal, Northeast, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, etc. In those pockets, not only has religious intolerance increased, but also India’s identity and worldview and paradigm of ‘Sarv-Panth Samaadar Bhaav’ (‘mutual respect and
harmony among all schools of religion’) has been diluted.

The rights of the Scheduled cast communities of Bharat (India) can’t be allowed to be snatched away by the converts. Backed by their money power, political influence and international support, they will lodge themselves in all areas of reservation and all those members of the scheduled caste communities for whom the provisions of reservations were made will be deprived of the facilities.

Vishva Hindu Parishad would undertake a widespread public awareness campaign across the country to expose the conspiracies of providing reservations to the Scheduled Castes.

Facts Behind Alleged Attack On SC (Dalit) Youth In Andhra

According to an eyewitness, opportunists twisted the fight between two Madiga (Scheduled Castes) families for their political gains.

He says there is no role of ‘caste’ in attacking the ‘Madiga (scheduled caste) community members in Amalapuram, Andhra Pradesh.

The surrounding areas of Amalapuram are witnessing an increase of missing cow cases particularly in the last 4 months. People belonging to all caste and religions were victims to this cow theft.

Due to this villagers were angry and questioning every suspect irrespective of caste and religion whenever they are in doubt. Villagers are leaving such suspects after confirming their whereabouts.

In the midst of all this, the concerned villagers have already informed families who are involved into animal skinning business. They requested them to inform if they sense any suspicion on dead animals before skinning. These 12 families were residents of Janakipeta and they were divided into groups due to some family rivalry.

On Monday, a local villager Arvind approached Mokati Elisha and Lazarus and asked them to skin his cow that died due to electrocution. To do this work, both Elisha and Lazarus reached the crematorium located between Sudhipalem and Battupalem villages.

But this crematorium was in the possession of Yarlagadda Yesurathnam, who also belongs to Janakipeta. But, Yesurathnam never allows others into his premises.

Mokati Elisha and Lazarus belong to one group and Yarlagadda Yesurathnam belongs to other, and they both have some family disputes for long time.

By seeing Mokati Elisha and Lazarus skinning the dead cow in his premises, Yesurathnam became angry and thought it is right time to take revenge against them.

Immediately, Yesurathnam approached members of local Gowda Community who were already

searching for their lost cows and complained to them that Mokati Elisha and Lazarus are skinning their stolen cows.

Once this news of skinning cows spread, all villagers irrespective of caste and political affiliations (No BJP member in this group) came together and severely beat those three members.

The facts of this total episode are:

  1. Stealing the cows
  2. Rivalry between two families.
  3. Beating people perceiving them to be thieves.

By ignoring all these, on whose interests the facts were twisted and called it as “Gou Raksha brigades ( Cow vigilante groups)”, “attack on Scheduled caste”?

Even the Parliament was mislead by this wrong reporting.

Is it to distance the scheduled brothers from Hindutva and to blame RSS and its inspired organizations?

It is requested to report the facts and do not mislead the citizens of this country.
