Heinous Attempts to Combine Ambedkar with Marx: Panchjanya

Just ahead of the 125th birth anniversary celebrations of Dr BR Ambedkar, RSS-affiliated journals Panchjanya and Organiser have dedicated their latest issue to the champion of Dalit rights, stressing on the “need to implement the spirit of reservation more vigorously,” reports The Indian Express.

The Organiser editorial noted that while reservation was based on “caste also”, Ambedkar’s “main goal was to avoid the feeling of alienation and separation on the basis of caste”. “There is a need to implement the spirit of reservation more vigorously and genuinely, beyond short-term political considerations, so that we can attain the social equality and fraternity expected by Babasaheb as early as possible.”

The party didn’t forgo an opportunity to attack the Congress, and the Organiser article said:

A more sinister attempt is being made by the people who were responsible for the partition of this motherland, to forge an alliance with some Ambedkarite groups.

Attacking the students supporting the Left ideology and using ‘Lal Salam’ as their slogans, the editorial said,

When heinous attempts are being made to combine Ambedkar with Marx or to limit his leadership to a caste group, there is a need to develop a spirit of consensual legacy.
