Why refuse to take caste-based census?
An Attempt to destroy Social Justice.
Why does the central government refuses to exercise the decennial caste-based census? If the de-facto numbers are known, is there a fear that reservation will be demanded based on population?
The statement of the Dravidar Kazhagam President Aasiriyar K. Veeramani, urging the central government to do the caste-census, is as follows:
A report has emerged that 2021 census will only enumerate schedule castes and tribes; castes of backward classes won’t be included in the enumeration.
What is the pretext? The reason told is strange, compiling more than 40 lakh castes among the backward classes will be difficult to enumerate is just a lame excuse. The ubiquitous castes are already in existence — does it multiply and grow? The decennial census is exercised since 1872 which has a legal status — mandated to do so. The fact is that each and every state has a backward category of caste list, but the central government says it won’t be able to accomplish caste-based enumeration because it is a tedious task to do so. Do we need a government to say this?
When the list of backward classes/castes is available with each state, what is the embarrassment and risk does the caste-based census will have? This is only an unwarranted lie.
Even when there is no statistical data, on what basis 10% reservation for the upper caste poor was hurriedly announced? It only leaves room to think that because of caste supremacist mindedness, BJP government wished to implement it.
Come up with a law to abolish the caste system, then there will be no need for caste. Why to disregard backward category castes? Why this tendency and unjust for backward? Another important reason is that the central government departments and educational institutions currently provides just 27 percent of seats to OBC’s. (Even that 27 percent is not completely fulfilled).
The backward caste in the population is above 75 percent. If caste-based enumeration during census reveal this truth, people from backward category will persuade more than 27 percent seats in reservation. This is the reason to fear and refuse caste-based enumeration.
The economic basis is against the reservation law Contravening the constitution, already the Central BJP government is imposing an economic criterion in the reservation system. The government is shying away from the systematic caste-wise census because if the true enumeration comes out, stronger demand will arise in the direction of reservation. Understanding the deceptive idea and tactics of BJP brahminical supremacist government, the backward class people must agitate. All who accept social justice must unite and defeat the Brahmanical BJP government.
Ready to bring legislation to abolish caste? If the policy of BJP is against the caste-based reservations, then we are asking whether they are ready to make a law to eradicate caste? If such actions will be taken, We the Dravidar Kazhagam will certainly welcome it.
The BJP government, having a contradicting policy on social justice, without any genuine interest in social justice, it is finding ways to eliminate it. The refusal of the caste-wise census is one among them.
All social justice activists, Unite together – Policies to protect the caste system on one side, on the other side, not revealing the statistical enumeration for the benefit of caste-based reservation, this shows their hypocritical act.
Understand that, reservation must be implemented on the basis of demographic, raise the voice and take it to the streets. We call everyone to join hands for the right cause!
Duty of Members of Parliament Opposition parties should unite in Parliament and raise their voices. The caste-based census should not be avoided for any reason; We also urge the central government to take a caste-based census.
Let’s fight — and win!
Forewarned is forearmed. We reiterate again and again that this is not a typical issue but a significant issue to have attention.
Join for the right cause!!
Unite for the right cause!!
President Dravidar Kazhagam
