The Varna system consists of Brahmans, Ksthriyas, Vaishyas, and Shudras. Shurdas, the original inhabitants of India, being outside Hinduism, repose no faith in it. Hence, native names such as Yadavs, Kurmis, Chamars are for them. The term Harijan is a circuitous way of superimposing caste upon them. Hindu scriptures and pantheon have thievishly legitimized Hindu minds to rule outcastes through erosion of their mental independence. The Aryans propounded the concept of birth-based inheritance of status as their ruling policy, which Marxism refuses to consider. Hence, its redundancy. Manuvaad operated media discourages equality. In 21st century, Ambedkar’s thoughts on Buddhism, have gained wide popularity, condemning the Brahmanical rituals. It will replace ignorance with knowledge, facilitating socio-economic equality among Bahujans. This will demolish conspiratorial Hinduism. The Bahujans, inclusive of Scheduled Castes, Tribes, Backwards, Muslims, Sikhs, and Christians, need to search their roots and unite to overthrow Brahmanism through caste-centered political power as in Uttar Pradesh. Caste is exclusive reality, Hinduism a myth.
