As you know the approach followed by the Mulnivasi Sangh in liberating the Mulnivasi Bahujans from Brahminical slavery is the one given by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar: Educate, Organize and Agitate. Why do you think there is an emphasis on education in Babasaheb’s approach? It is because, Mulnivasis were denied education under Brahminical social system and by denying education Aryan oppressors were able control our minds and bodies. In this manner, these minority (only 15%) oppressors were able to keep us (the majority 85%) under slavery for hundreds of years without even using a force! Rashtrapita Jyotiba Phule also diagnosed lack of education as prime cause of ruin of Mulnivasi Bahujans. Similar emphasis was given on education by our other forefathers and foremothers from Buddha to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.
Therefore education is important for our liberation. Here the meaning of education is not limited to being able to read and write or holding diplomas and degrees. Here education means being aware of the history of our society, the problems of our society, the causes behind the problems, the contributions our foremothers and forefathers in solving those problems and the current situation. You would appreciate that in our formal education system one would never get educated on the above aspects as the system is deliberately designed to keep such information away from people. Hence, it is necessary that we take up this task of ‘educating’ the Mulnivasis about the above aspects.
Library is an important place for getting education. You know how much time Babasaheb used to spend in Library and how he used to love books. Here we have tried to build online library of all material: Books, newsletters, audios, videos and online articles and most importantly bibliographies of relevant material. With the help of committed and experienced cadres and supporters of BAMCEF and Mulnivasi Sangh, we are able to put together this material for your education. Please make use of this resource and complete the first step in the path to liberation: Educate, Organize and Agitate!!!
