In fact, in all the areas where ‘progressives’ have tried to annihilate it, Jaatiwad has taken even deeper roots.
Look at Tamil Nadu.
Come to Punjab and Haryana where Arya Samaj, probably the most anti-Jaati organisation to have ever existed, has been working since 1865 with missionary zeal. Achievement? Zilch.
- creating identity crisis for those who fall in their utopian trap
- obliterating diversity of rituals, traditions or practicises of jaatis that become their victims.
Jaatiwad will end giving way to Hindu unity sooner rather than latter. That’s what we should focus on. We can do without Abrahamic mindset of throwing babies with the bathwater.
