Description

The violence at Bhima-Koregaon has proved instrumental in bringing forth the gruesome face of India yet again.

Bhima-Koregaon has pointed out the extent to which the poison of casteism has spread in this Maharashtra state that chants the names of Phule-Shahu-Ambedkar. In this state of Babasaheb Ambedkar’s, the Ambedkarite public is still treated like second-class citizens.There is sufficient proof to conclusively show that it was the result of an entirely pre-meditated plan.

This year, the battle completes 200 years. To commemorate the bicentenary, the progressive groups in the state organized the ‘Elgaar yatra’ (a state-wide march) that would conclude on the 31st of December 2017 at the Shaniwar Wada,Pune.The roots of the current violence at Bhima-Koregaon lie here. The radical Brahmins of Pune could not digest the fact that Dalits were about to host a function at the Shaniwar Wada and that the Peshwas were bound to be criticized as part of it.

The violence at Bhima-Koregaon was not a clash of two groups. It was a pre-planned attack by the Hindutvavadi goons on the Dalits. Certain Brahminical forces had instigated few young men of the Maratha society for selfish political gain.1 person lost his life with several injured. The state government failed to respond to the violence.

ABAT condemn this violence and would like to show the solidarity with Ambedkarites in the world.
