Opinion of a social affairs expert

Nitesh Sen Gupta says that the proposal of U.N.Commission for Human Rights which is prepared for combating any kind of discrimination based on the profession or cast and creed, is a good document. This will be helpful in India to stop discrimination and tension among casts and communities. Thus Indian Government should not oppose it, more over should support along with Nepal and Sri Lanka. Sen Gupta claims that the cast system is not there in the rigin of Hinduism and basic books like Upanishads and bhagvat geeta. There is only work distribution in them. This is manosmrati which gave this thing a form of permenant system and today it is the system of manusmrati that is established. Sen Gupta also says that the issue of reservation in government jobs for “lower and backward cast” has become a profitable political business. And the people doing the reservation politics do not want to change the situation For this Sen Gupta holds V.P.Singh government’s mandal report responsible. He is also fedup with “one man vote” democracy which according to him has created this situation. Nitesh sen gupta had been a secretary for India Government and was also a M.P. He is considered an expert in social affairs. He expressed these views of him in an article of Asian Age on 19th October.

The actual question is ignored
This article is one among the dozens of articles and analysis which appeared in Indian media after the U.N. Commision for Human Rights movement and these views of a former central secretary represent all of them. After looking into all these analysis , one thing clearly came out as the discrimination and the cruelty based on the professions and cast and creed is being condemned and being opposed but this very strange system is not being challenged. This fundamental issue is not debated as why humans are first of all divided into lower and higher casts. Who did it and why did it, and who gave the authority to do this to those who did it.? And now it is being told as this evil has come due to the manosmrati whereas old dharm study says that this thing existed already, mahrashi mano just revised it. Mahrshi mano is just a revivalist not the author. Actually 19 years ago the decision of action over mandal commission’s report had changed the face of country’s politics. To crush the awareness resulted by this announcement, many new issues have been created. After announcement carrying out rath yatra, then in December 1992 demolishing babri masjid andolan, was for turning the direction of the same awareness, like Atal bihari Vajpayee said, “If there were not manadal , there would not have been kamandal”.

After the british left
After the brithishers left, those in whose hands the black and white of this contry had come, they adopted the democracy, that is adult voting way , with the belief that this in every sector of the collective life, will guarantee the authority of “majority”. The purpose and motive of reservation for lower casts was to keep them tied up to the majority social system. For four decades this formula worked without any interruption but in 1990 announcement of mandal had hurt it severely. Although the upholders of this system, by chanting the slogans of ram mandir first then uniform civil code, wanted to lesser the impacts of this and today by raising the hoax of terrorism and nexalwad, trying to push it back in the background, but anyway this is the biggest problem of this country. Desire for the solution of this is not there. Faction of the victims of this system living in the cities, and taking advantage of the quota and reservation, does not feel the need of reformation. Political people want to keep it alive. Actually hit are those crores of communities who live in villages and small towns. Now the people who are talking about reformation in the light of U.N.Movement also wish that just discrimination be not allowed, otherwise they are not debating over the fundamental cause of the evil either, and they can not do it.
