Some 5,000 years or so back the subcontinent, now called India was inhabited by a highly cultured and prosperous urban oriental race, described by the historians as Dravidians. Horse was unknown to them. Many excavated sites in the North India throw light on the living conditions of this Indus civilization. To their bad luck, sturdier but semi cultured Aryans from the North and North West entered through the various passes. They were experts in horsemanship and fighting skills. The invading Lords continued their influx till about 1800 BC. The original inhabitants, because of easy living, could not match the powers of the invaders whose mounted fighters murdered, plundered, raped and conjured the former. The beautiful and bountiful cities were razed to the ground. Fortunate ones fled away to the south of Vindhyachal and Satpura Ranges and formed their kingdoms there and then conquered distant lands of Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Kambodia, etc. The others were killed or made slaves by the Aryans who settled in the Indogangetic fertile areas and formed ‘small kingdoms under their chieftains who through the help of their crafty priests came to be worshipped as gods.

These priests — called Brahmins — were crooks of the first order, Everybody is naturally afraid of thunder, heavy rains, floods, lightening, fire, reptiles, or wild animals etc., These Bramins created fear and took up the task of helping the people through abracadabra mantras. The innocent people began to believe these crooks who robbed the people of grains, cows, etc., by concocting cock and bull stories. In order to enslave the masses, they divided the society into permanently seated compartments, viz; Brahmins (the purists of the pure) agents of gods, Khashatryas (the warriors who fought under the advice of Brahmins), Vaishas (the agriculturists, later trader Banias) and Shudras (the trampled upon by all).

By a mixture of existing languages, a new language named Sanskrit came into existence but it was only spoken. Alphabet came much later, i.e. around 1100 BC when the earliest book of the Aryans — Rigveda — was written. Other books like Upanishads (700 BC), Dharam Shatras and Gita (300 BC) followed. By then, the hold of the Brahmins over the society was complete. Cheats by birth, they were interested in naked exploitation, violence, degradation, separatism and segregation of the remainder 95% of the masses who were never allowed to read. The Shudras (Dalits) were not to hear the contents of the books which had enslaved the society perpetually. The demigod, Manu — the greatest foe of equality and secularism — laid a code of conduct which to this day is respected by their descendants. Some of the gems offered by him are:

  1. If a woman has 10 husbans but is touched by a Brahmin, she would be considered his wife.
  2. A male Brahmin can enjoy any woman in the Universe.
  3. Brahmin who performs Yajna for a low caste, will turn into donkey in the next birth (perhaps the population of donkeys is larger because of this).
  4. If a Brahmin dies with Shudras’ food in his stomach, he will take birth as a swine, (and then these swine’s must be Brahmins in earlier births).
  5. Khashatryas and Vaishas should offer maid slaves, gold, grain, cattle and virgin girls to Brahmins who would in turn impregnate these virgins.

As the Brahmins were living with wealth, wine, women and beef, the number of cattle began dwindling and the agricultural production fell. They considered beef a special dish. In the 5th century B.C., the masses revolted, Aijavik, Mahavira and Buddha leading the revolt, propagated no killing of cattle. When the crafty Brahmins could not resist, cunning as they were, they joined the masses and issued edicts recommending cow worship. Even then, they could not stand against the reformers as the kings of Magadh and Mauryan dynasties were supporting the reformist Buddhists. Brahmins became defensive but their cunningness was boundless. They were the ministers in the courts and through their limitless craftiness, overthrew the kingdoms and installed the Sunga and Gupta Kings who in order to pay back their benefactors, murdered lakhs of Buddhists, razed their temples to the ground, and built Brahminic temples on their ruins. It was all done with “ahimisa”, nonviolence, on their lips. They banished the Buddhism or antiBrahminism from the subcontinent because “without backing of political power, religious and social movements never survive”.

Gupta Period is called a Golden Era, because Brahmins had regained their inhuman glory during that period.

During the period between 200 B.C. and 400 A.D., a new race called Jats entered the northern subcontinent through Sindh and Gujarat from probably Iran and Afghanistan and occupied the fertile plains of Sindh, Malwa, Haryana, Punjab, and Western U.P. These were mainly agriculturalists and grazers, so having been vanquished and deprived of land, the earlier Vaishas either moved eastward or adopted the profession of traders. The Brahmins ran away towards east as the Jats were ant priests. They were governed by their panchayat and believed in widow remarriage. The Brahmins due to this offence, turned against the Jats and made an alliance with the Vaishas who had become Banjas; to enslave the mind and economy of the population. This alliance — unfortunately — is still in existence. Bania and Brahmin, due to the existence of Jats, have not reconciled and are deadly against the culture of Punjab. There is a popular saying that “a Brahmin enslaves the mind while traders, the body. An undertaker is better than a trader i.e. Bania as the former only disposes off the dead body but a trade renders a person dead by creating epidemic”. No fraud, no conscience and no chicanery is spared by the Brahmin Bania alliance to get the requisite objective.


The alliance became too powerful throughout the land. The debauches were busy with their drinks and dames when in the 7th centuries A.D., a few hundred Muslims under the command of an 18 year old Mohammad Bin Qasim entered Sindh and through the treachery of a Brahmin, conquered vast areas, took away wealth and virgins to Iraq. Seeing that the alliance has left the people with no will to fight, waves after waves of Muslim invaders came and conquered the Indian kingdoms, whose Brahmin priests and prime ministers had already sown the seeds of distrust, looted and took away thousands of virgin Hindu girls and beautiful boys to their own lands to fulfill their lust. Then came the Mughals who occupied India from 1526 to 1857. Muslim saints and Sufis preached Islam giving a message of equality. The down trodden (Dalits) embraced Islam to gain equality with the ruling class and to get rid of Brahmin rites. Brahmins — the blood suckers and enemies of  humanism — never excused the Muslims for giving social security to the erstwhile Dalits and became deadly enemies of the Muslims but were helpless during the nonBrahmin regimes of Muslims, Sikhs and the British,

Brahmins being the educated and intelligent lot had occupied senior government posts. Under their advice, Hindu Rajput princess entered into alliances with Mughals and gave their daughters to the Muslims because they wanted to remain in power by hook and by crook. Jehangir and Shah Jehan had their Hindu Rajput mothers who helped their kins to get the imperial favors. During the reign of Akbar, an army of 53,000 cavalry was of Rajputs which was 1/10 of the whole Mughal army which had 47 Hindu commanders out of 416 in all. It was Raja Man Singh of Jaipur who had commanded the Mughal army of 5,000 Rajputs and 5,000 others when he defeated the brave Rana Partap in the battle of Haldighat. It was Raja Jai Singh who had attacked Shivaji.

Shah Ji, the father of Shivaji, was an Officer in the Muslim army when he razed Hindu temples, broke idols and molested women in Karanataka. According to the New History of Marathas by Sardesai, Shahji was given three jagirs by the Muslim Deccan Kings, but Aurangzeb confiscated them. Shivaji through a letter to Raja Jai Singh pleaded that he was ready to serve Delhiand to help Aurangzeb to capture Bijapur, if he was allowed to keep his three fields. It would be interesting to note that like Mauryas, Shivaji was a Dalit and could gain high Hindu status by bribing the Brahmins. He gave a banquet to one lakh Brahmins and donated 10 thousand cows to get the high status. He had to give the posts of Prime Minister, Generals and Finance Minister to appease them who, after his death, captured his kingdom from his heirs.
