What Is the meaning of 'BAMCEF'
‘BAMCEF’ is the abbreviation of an organization known as “The All India Backward (SC, ST, and OBC) and Minority Communities Employees Federation”, where ‘B’ stands for Backward (SC,ST, and OBC), ‘A’ stands for and, ‘M’ stands for Minority, ‘C’ stands for Communities, ‘E’ stands for Employees and ‘F’ for Federation. Here the word Backward is used to indicate the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes. However, it does not mean that all these communities are backward equally. Some are more backward and some are less backward. Thus, all of these communities are backward. Therefore, we have called them backward. As far as the class of Minorities is concerned, we include in it all those people from Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes who in historical times accepted conversion and became Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists.
View point based on problems
Why do we organize only the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes and Minorities? Factual reasons exist behind this. This class is severely plagued with problems. The social, economical, political, religious and educational problems of this class have been expressed in an acute form. Now these problems are not the subject of debate. The Government of India, the High Courts of different states and the Supreme Court have also approved this fact.
The Government of India has established the SC/ST Commission, which is a constitutional body. This is a proof that the Government of India accepts that this class has specific problems. The Government of India appointed the Mandal Commission to find out such castes, other than the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes, which have no representation in State i.e. Legislature/Executive/Judiciary, so as to secure for them adequate representation in State (Legislature, Executive and Judiciary). The Government of India validated the report of the Mandal Commission. The Supreme Court too has validated this on 16th November 1992.
The Government of India and various state governments have constituted Special Minority Commissions to secure and protect the rights/privileges of the Minorities and to redress their problems.
View point based on Social Systems
From the systemic viewpoint, it can be seen that the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classses and the Converted Minorities suffer in a most serious way from the Brahminnical Social System of this country. Therefore, Jotirao Phule, Periyar Ramasami, Dr. Ambedkar and other Mulnivasi leaders determined—‘Vyavastha Parivartan’ i.e., Systemic Change or absolute eradication of the existing Brahminnical Social System of Inequality—the objective of their Movements. In short, the objective of the movements of our forefathers was one and fixed. This one objective was ‘Change of System’. It is but natural that only those who are victims of this Brahminnical Social System of Inequality can actively participate in the movement of ‘Change of System’. There is no logic in organizing the beneficiaries of the System in this movement of ‘Change of System’. Therefore, only those people who are the victims of this Brahminnical Social System of Inequality must be organized to change or uproot this system. Therefore, we organize only the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes and the Converted Minorities.
Historical View point
On 21stMay 2001, the Times of India published a news that the Brahmins, Kshattriyas and Vaishyas are not Indians; they are foreigners (Aryan Eurasians). Michael Bamshad who is the Head of Department of Bio-Technology at Utah University (Salt Lake City, USA) conducted this research based on DNA (Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid). Michael Bamshad conducted this research with the help of Bio-Technologists from Anthropological Survey of India, Madras University and Andhra University, Vishakhapatnam. This research is free from any bias as it was done in collaboration with Indians. It is a result of the Indo- US collaborative research project on the genetic evidence on the origins of Indian caste populations.
This research absolutely establishes the fact that the people belonging to the Brahmin Varna are foreigners. As this research is based on DNA, it is beyond dispute. Brahmins could not oppose it so they had to approve of it. Some Brahmins like Jay Dixit have even started to find their roots in foreign lands on the basis of this research. This research proves that the DNA of Brahmins in India is 99.99% (genetically) similar to people living near the Black Sea, a Eurasian region close to Russia. The documented history of India needs to be rewritten on the basis of this scientific research. Without rewriting Indian History on the basis of this scientific proof it cannot be accepted. We have therefore decided to rewrite Indian history.
If history is re-written as per our decision, then it can be written that people from Eurasia entered India only to invade India. Some persons hold this view that these people (Eurasians) entered India to do agriculture and cattle rearing. However, this view has been falsified by the scientific genetic research based on DNA. It was invasion and not migration. On the basis of the analysis of Mitochondrial DNA it has also been found out that the women in Brahmin homes are Mulnivasis (the genetic make up of females suggests a proto-Asian origin. i.e., they are indigenous Indians). As these people (Eurasians) did not bring their women folk with them it is proved that their only object was to invade India and to subjugate Mulnivasis (indigenous people).
The Invading Eurasians entered India with the only objective of Invasion but they could not defeat the Mulnivasis in a face-to-face war. Therefore, they used every possible means (Saam-Daam-Dand-Bhed Policy) to defeat the Mulnivasis of India. They violated our trusts. They hatched conspiracies against us. They betrayed us. They used lies and bribes. They divided us to conquer us. Using all such devious and immoral means, they finally managed to defeat the indigenous people of India. Numerous documented Proofs of their Betrayal are available in the Brahminnical literature and their religious texts.
How to keep the defeated Mulnivasis in a state of perpetual slavery was a problem that confronted the Eurasian invaders. They created the Varna Vyavastha to solve this problem of enforcing perpetual slavery on the mulnivasis. Some mulnivasis of an aggressive nature were granted the status of Kshattriyas in the Varna Vyavastha but were kept below Brahmins in the Hierarchy of Varna Vyavastha. People showing traits of trading class mentality were given the status of Vaishya Varna. The vast majority of the masses were made Shudras and to enslave them the System of Varna Vyavastha was created.
The people of ancient republics opposed the Varna System, which was a a system devised to enforce slavery. This resulted in conflict. Later Vardhaman Mahaveer of the Lichhvi Gana (republic) and Gautam Buddha of the Shakya Gana (republic) lead the movement against Varna Vyavastha.
Buddha played the most important role in this struggle. Buddha challenged the very ideological basis of the Varna System. The ideology developed by Buddha to challenge the Varna System is called the Ideology of Buddha. It is available in Pali language in the Tripitaks.
Buddha’s movement against Varna System and Brahman Dharma brought a revolution in ancient India. This revolution gave rise to the following great results:
Eurasian Brahmins used the term ‘Shudra’ in their conspiracy to force slavery on the Mulnivasis. All rights were denied to the Shudra Varna. Those who have no rights are slaves. In this way, it was a conspiracy to enforce slavery on the Mulnivasis. However, from these very enslaved people Kings were born. These people established the great Mauryan Empire. Great Emperors like Chandragupta and Ashoka belonged to the Mauryan Empire. It is said that Mauryas were people of the Naga race.
All women were declared as Shudras in the Varna Vyavastha. They were declared as slaves. Buddha’s revolution liberated these women. It was accepted that without the liberation of women the entire society cannot be liberated.
Buddha never said a thing without logic and argument. This resulted in the development of science and knowledge. After the use of logic and argument, knowledge was tested and experimented upon in laboratories. Great universities like Nalanda, Takshasheela, Vikramsheela etc were the outcome of all these developments.
Plot of Counter-Revolution
Eurasian Brahmins refused to accept this counter-revolution. They hatched a counter-revolution to reestablish their supremacy. Infiltration by Eurasian Brahmins into the Bhikkhu Sangh was the pre-preparation of this counter revolution.
Through infiltration, they divided the bhikkhu sangha from within. They spread delusions in the people by distorting the ideology of Buddha.
As Buddhism had state/royal patronage in the Mauryan Empire, they infiltrated the Mauryan State administration and sabotaged it from within. Pushyamitra Shrung effected the Counter revolution by taking advantage of this situation. To perpetrate this counter-revolution he murdered Emperor Brihadutt, the last Emperor of Mauryan Empire.
The Counter-revolution produced two important results. They were:
State support to Buddhism was ended.
Brahman Dharma received State support. An Ashwamedha Yadnya was done and Bhikkus were mass-slaughtered. Buddhism was the religion of the Mulnivasi people. It was not possible to annihilate the religion of the people without mass slaughter of the Pracharaks/ Propagators/ Bhikkus of the Buddhist religion. Therefore, the Bhikkus were mass-slaughtered. New texts were created to revive and support the Brahman religion. Chief among these new texts were Manusmriti, Mahabharata, Geeta, Ramayana, Puranas etc.
From the viewpoint of Mulnivasis the Counter Revolution produced many terrible consequences.
Creation of Caste System
Creation of Graded inequality
Creation of Untouchability
Segregation of Tribals/Adivasis
Slavery of Women
Compromise of OBC with the Brahman religion
After the counter-revolution the Mulnivasis were fragmented into many groups. In the present view we can see that-
Those mulnivasis who accepted to abide by the Brahmin religion were granted Shudra Status by the Brahmins. Through the Puranas it was declared that all people below the Brahmin Varna are Shudras.
Those Mulnivasis who refused to abide by the Brahmin religion were declared as Untouchables.
Those Mulnivasis who did not compromise but stayed in jungles were called Tribals/Adivasis
Those mulnivasis who were compelled to do crime for their living were declared as Criminal Tribes
Thus in the present view we can see that the Buddhist people, who are in fact Mulnivasis (indigenous people of India) are divided into four groups.
Earlier they were Buddhists or Mulnivasis. They became Muslims later, when the Muslim kings entered India. They became Christians when the English came to India. Thus in the later period after the counter-revolution, religious conversions of the Mulnivasis (SC, ST, OBC, Criminal Tribes) took place and they became Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhist, Jains.
In this way, the Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains are the Mulnivasis i.e. the indigenous people of India.
Why are we organizing only the educated class?
“Why we are organizing only the educated class?” is a question that needs deep thinking and cogitation in a definite way. Many reasons can be cited here. However, we will discuss a few of these important reasons here. The educated class is nothing but the intellectual class. The educated class possesses three characteristics:
The educated class acquires a new vision of life. With this newly acquired vision, the educated class analyzes and understands its present life and status. If he feels that his life is inferior, he thinks of changing it. He dreams of such a system in which his life will not be inferior. Therefore, the intellectual class dreams of a new society and a new system.
How was such a system, which enforces inferiority created? What were the principal reasons behind its creation? Whose interests are secured by such a system? Why does it function only to secure the interests of a few? To analyze all these questions a new viewpoint is needed. This viewpoint is nothing but analytical science or it can be called as ‘Critical Study’. Only the intellectual class can produce such kind of analytical study.
Only the intellectual class can create an organization to change the old, decaying and rotten system of inequality and to establish in its place the just system of his dream. The intellectual class knows that means and resources are needed to achieve the objective. In this way, the intellectual class realizes the significance and importance of means and resources. The intellectual class possesses the above-mentioned three characteristics. It is only for these reasons that Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar gave priority for creation of an intellectual class in the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and the Other Backward Classes. We can see that from the movements, run by Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule from 1848 to 1890 and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar, the present intellectual class has been created. These special characteristics of the intellectual class are the reasons behind organizing them.
Objective behind creation of intellectual class
Why did Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar give priority to the creation of an intellectual class? They knew that the creation of an intellectual class was needed to uproot/change the Brahminnical (Manuwadi) System. Only the intellectual class can run the movement of ‘Change of System’ or ‘Vyavastha Parivartan’. Therefore, the creation of an intellectual class was the first priority of our leaders. The intellectual class is an important ‘resource’ for running the movement of systemic change. Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar knew that the creation of an intellectual class was a necessity. To fulfill the pre-determined objective of systemic change or ‘Vyavastha Parivartan’, Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar gave first priority to the work of creating an intellectual class in the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and the Other Backward Classes.
Is the Intellectual Class doing this work?
Is the intellectual class from the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and the Other Backward Classes working in accordance with the wishes of its creators? After thorough analyses, it can be found out that this class is not seen as active participant in this mission. Not only this, but he looks at his own community with indifference and contempt and stays away from it. Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar too experienced this in the later part of his life. On 18th March 1956 at the Ram Leela Ground in Agra, Babasaheb with his mind filled with grief uttered these sad words, “These educated people have betrayed me. I was thinking that this educated class would serve their society. But I can see that a crowd of clerks, busy only in filling their bellies, has gathered around me”.
Babasaheb’s heartfelt feeling expressed above is a proof that the educated class is distancing itself from the affection of its community and moving far away from the community itself. This is the reason behind the increase in magnitude of injustice, atrocity and discrimination perpetrated on the people living in villages. Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar had created the intellectual class for a definite task but the intellectual class is not seen doing this task. The intellectual class was expected to provide leadership to the movement but instead this class has become the slave of the government and remains as such. The intellectual class has discarded the reins of the movement in the hands of immature people. Consequently, we can see that the movement of Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar is not moving ahead.
What must the intellectual class do?
The intellectual class must do the work that was expected from them by their creators. A System of Inequality runs in this country. Unless and until this system of inequality is uprooted, all kinds of discrimination will continue to be practiced on the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes and converted Minorities. The system of inequality will continually crush them. Therefore, the intellectual class must organize to change the system of inequality, they must work to organize and create an effective and a powerful movement. The intellectual class must come to the forefront to do this work. Keeping in mind the expectations of our forefathers and the special characteristics of the intellectual class BAMCEF is striving to organize the intellectual class to achieve the aforementioned task.
Our Objective—Change of System
We have achieved some success in this endeavour. However, it is not enough to achieve the ultimate objective. Therefore, there is a need to accelerate the pace of these efforts. To achieve the objective of ‘Change of System’ and to implement these efforts more efficiently, BAMCEF has set some important goals before it.
To create in the intellectual class a feeling of paying back to the society to fulfill its ‘Social Obligation’. To instill in the intellectual class a feeling that it owes a ‘Social Debt’ to the community thereby making it payback to the society for getting liberated from this debt.
To plant and strengthen the non-political roots of the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj (Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes and Converted Minorities)
To create ‘objective-oriented’ and ‘objective-motivated’ type of awakening
To propagate the thoughts of Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule, Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and Periyar Ramasami
To awaken the more or less oppressed 6000 castes, unite them and develop brotherhood amongst them
To create intellect, wealth and talent for building a self-reliant movement of the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj
To create and sustain leadership in the leaderless society
To direct the directionless society
To create and sustain full-time workers/Pracharaks
It must be understood that the success of the movement of systemic change depends on the fulfillment of the goals written above.
Limitations of BAMCEF
BAMCEF is an organization of governmental and non-governmental educated employees. Therefore, BAMCEF activists cannot participate actively in any Political party. If they do so, it violates the civil service conduct rules. Therefore, BAMCEF has been kept non-political and non-agitational. Keeping in mind the objective of building an organization of 6000 castes and strategic viewpoint, BAMCEF has been kept non-religious.
BAMCEF-Medium of Systemic Change
Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule and Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar had determined the objective of their movement as ‘change or complete eradication of the system of inequality’. This objective remains unachieved. Throughout their life, they fought to achieve this objective. They were successful to some extent in their struggle. However, the movement of ‘change of system’ has not achieved its logical end i.e., the objective. Therefore, BAMCEF dedicates itself to achieve the unfinished objective of our forefathers. ‘Change of System’ is that ultimate objective. In short, it means structural change in the social system. Therefore, BAMCEF does not indulge in charitable or welfare activities. Such activities cannot be taken as an end. Such activities can be used as means at the appropriate time in accordance with the needs of the movement. The question whether such activities help to achieve the objective of the movement or not must be considered before indulging in such activities.
Change of System—A Mission
Since thousands of years, efforts to uproot the system of inequality have been going on. We are yet to achieve complete success in this. In this struggle, thousands of great people sacrificed their lives and became martyrs but the objective has not been fully achieved. ‘Change of System’ is a great task but an arduous task. Therefore, it is a ‘Mission’ and the activist working for the fulfillment of this mission can be called as a ‘Missionary’. For the fulfillment of this mission, thousands and lakhs of people will be required. Only then the objective can be achieved. The first and foremost duty of all those people who have been benefited from the movement of Rashtrapita Jotirao Phule, Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and Periyar Ramasami is to come forward on their own through self-motivation and self-inspiration to accomplish this task.
With this hope that our wish and expectation will not go waste, we end this appeal.
