HUNDREDS OF PROTEST LETTERS HAVE GONE TO THE VICE CHANCELLOR AND THE ORGANISER OF THE SO-CALLED ANTI CASTE CONFERENCE IN THE WOLVERHAMPTON UNIVERSITY. IT IS ONE SIDED AND ANTI HINDU AND ANTI THEISTS. THE UNIVERSITY IS NEAR BIRMINGHAM IN BRITAIN.

HERE ARE A FEW LETTERS THAT WERE SENT TO THE UNIVERSITY IN THE PAST ONE WEEK. IF THEY ARE GENUINELY DEMOCRATIC AND ACADEMIC, THEY MUST GIVE CHANCE TO SPEAKERS WHO OPPOSE THE ONE-SIDED CONFERENCE. ALL OF US KNEW THAT CASTE POLITICS IS VERY MUCH ALIVE IN INDIA AND E VE R NAICKER AND AMBEDKAR HAVE FAILED. MORE AND MORE CASTES WANT THEM TO BE INCLUDED IN THE RESERVATION QUOTA THOUGH THEY ARE VERY RICH.

LETTER FROM B.KANNAN, DELHI

Sub: The proposed online “ Anti-caste Thought : Theory, Politics and Culture Conference by your esteemed University
             A Dissenting Note


Dear Madam Meena Dhanda,

Vanakkam/Namaskaram/ Pranam  

Hope you are brimming with enthusiasm, high expectations to welcome & hear the “Periyarist”-Rationalistic thoughts on Caste in South Indian
perspective.

As such,  the proposed two day (one sided) online conference titled “ Anti-caste Thought : Theory, Politics and Culture” to be held on October 29th
and 30th 2021, sponsored by your esteemed institution Wolverhampton University,is highly unwarranted and undesirable. I am of the view that
yourself & the Institution you represent are misinformed and misguided to host such a session.

Meanwhile, i introduce myself as a retired employee of TATA STEEL,Jamshedpur,aged 80 years, now residing in New Delhi with my family, originally
hailing from Tamil nadu. I humbly state that i am a freelance writer in Tamil, English since my college days.

Coming to the subject, the main purpose behind “THE ANTI-CASTE THOUGHT” is to project vehemently ANTI HINDU/HINDUISM and most importantly
brow-beating the BRAHMIN COMMUNITY for all caste differences. There might be few instances that occurred here and there, for that one can’t
blame the community as a whole. If a mango tasted by you is found rotten, it is unbecoming of you to neglect its whole lot! This aspect has
been taken conveniently by the “PERIYARISTS”to promote their vested interests. The same so-called “NAICKER REFORMISTS” pay no heed to the
alarming plight of Scheduled Caste people who are asked to do menial jobs in Ministers, Bureaucrats houses as well as in their homes too!

My pertinent question is whether the conference will highlight the existing caste differences found everywhere in Christianity and Islam?
It is there in South India. The converted Dalits and people of other religion have no say in entering other Churches. So is the case with
SHIA, SUNNY Islamic faiths. In the itinerary i found no mention to that effect. When there is a mention about Dr.Ambedkar and Buddhism why
the other two major religions are conveniently left-out? it seems, the conference is targeting only Hinduism and its practices and especially
the Brahmin sect.

Likewise, the great Vaishnavite Acharya Sri Ramanujar’s name nowhere to be seen.1000 years back he did yeoman service to uplift the downtrodden
people which is no match to this opportunistic “Periyarism” groups. Is it because he was a reformist from upper-caste?

E.V.Ramasamy Naicker is 100% Brahmin hater. He used to suffix his (sur)family name Naicker along with his name Ramasamy . He insisted that 3%
of the Brahmins are to be wiped out even if they have to sacrifice 3% non brahmins in this cause The Evangelists extend a helping hand indirectly
for this cause.  

He was against India’s Independence and begged British not to leave the country. He has written that Tamil is a Barbaric language, denounced
Tiruvalluvars TIRUKURAL in bad taste. He also propagated that there is no GOD and those who worship Hindu GODs is a foolhardy. Do the Periyarists
apply this statement to Christians, Muslims, Jains etc.? He and his blind followers abuse in various ways the Hindu Deities alone. Even nowadays
they try to torn Brahmins’ Holy Thread without knowing other inner divisions of Hindus like Chettiar,Vanniars do wear The Holy Thread!

Naicker was a male chauvinist to the core. He ridiculed the modesty of all women. Once he observed that because ladies belonged to a particular
caste began to wear upper garment, the price of cloth shouted up-brilliant rationalist discovery! He also advocated the filthy idea of father marrying
his own daughter or mother his own son. He married Maniyammai, a young girl fostered by him, showing it was a revolutionary idea!
A close friend of him, Sri Sami Chitambaranar who wrote his biography observed that in youthful days he used to spend time with whores on moonlit
hours on river banks with friends, enjoying the food brought by wife!. Not only this, he would ask his friends even to cajole wife when she would go
out to shop/Temple!! This was his way of empowering women’s cause! Yes, Naicker’s bad acts weigh heavily more than his some good actions.  

The proposed conference is projecting one-sided, biased views of E.V.Ramasamy Naicker on “ Anti-caste Thought : Theory, Politics and Culture  
One can easily infer from this, the symposium must have ulterior motives to disrespect Hindus/Hinduism and the Brahmins that form the common
denominator at last!

The proposed conference will cause your esteemed University an irreparable damage to its name. So I request you to think twice before jumping into
the ring as a face-saving measure.

Before concluding this dissenting note, i would like to draw your attention to the following analogy that compares very well with Periyarism
and his blind followers.

This is a real life “conditioned Experiment” carried out by a group of animal (veterinary) scientists on 5 monkeys enticing with ripe bananas.
   
A group of scientists placed 5 monkeys in a room and in the middle kept a ladder with plastic bananas on the top.

Every time a monkey went up the ladder out of curiosity, the scientists splashed ice-cold water on them. Shivering

the rest 4 monkeys beat the one on the ladder and brought it down.

This procedure continued till all the 5 monkeys received their cold shower, went down exhausted. Thereafter none of them
dared to go up the ladder regardless of temptation.

Scientists now decided to substitute one of the monkeys, stopped water-splashing. As soon as the new one started to climb
the ladder to get the fruit the other monkeys beat it up repeatedly not allowing to go up. Perplexed it gave up wondering
what this all about.

After a while a second monkey was replaced, the same treatment was meted out to it by others including the previous one substituted.
This cycle was repeated till all the old lot of monkeys were changed. What others did the new one followed suit, blindly carried out the same
without knowing the reason. No cold shower, lot of beating yet no banana, they were all exhausted.

At the end, if it was possible for us to ask the monkeys, ‘why they beat up all those who attempted to climb the ladder’, be sure the
answer would be, “I DON”T KNOW-THAT’S HOW THINGS ARE DONE AROUND HERE!”

The fifth monkey was at a loss to understand why others pulled him from the ladder. the four monkeys didn’t know why they
beat and pulled down the fifth one!

Likewise, some 100 years back there lived Tamil people shouting in high pitch “DRAVIDAM”. But today the so-called revolutionaries
vehemently support “dravidam” without knowing/understanding what they are talking about! They are no different from the behaviour
of the “conditioned” monkeys!!

You are welcome to clarify and take cognisance of my dissenting note.

Thanking you and with regards,

LETTER FROM FAMOUS TAMIL WRITER P A KRISHNAN, DELHI

Dear Vice Chancellor,

This is with reference to a conference to be held in your university. The title of the conference is “Anti-caste thought: Theory, practice and culture’. Here is the link:

The purpose of this conference is to project one Periyar E V Ramasamy as a champion of anti-caste movement. Periyar Ramasamy was a toady of British Imperialism. He loathed everything Gandhi stood for and he hated the very idea of a united India.  In addition, his views on a section of the Hindus were unabashedly Nazi and racist.

Here is a link to a series of articles on him in the prestigious Indian magazine ‘The Wire.

https://m.thewire.in/author/P.A.-Krishnan

These are some of the samples of his writings:

“The Jews are only interested in themselves, and nobody else. They somehow contrive to have the rulers in their pocket, participate in governance and conspire to torture and suck the lives out of other citizens in order that they live (in comfort).” These blatantly anti-semitic lines were penned on March 20, 1938, when Hitler’s flag was flying high. If you had read them in isolation and if you were familiar with the history of the Nazis, it is likely that you would think they must have been fished out of some sordid pro-Nazi tabloid.

These are the next lines: “Are they not comparable to the Brahmins who too have no responsibility but have the rulers in their pocket, have entered the ruling dispensation and been lording over (all of us)?” 

This is Periyar E.V. Ramasamy writing in his magazine Kudiyarasu, and he is being unusually mild here. 

This is another quote of his dated on 31 August 1959:

Who do you hate? The Brahmin or Brahminism? What is Brahminism?’ – for questions such as these, my reply is Brahminism came from Brahmins and hence it is the Brahmins who should be annihilated. It is like asking whether you hate thievery or the thief. It is because one is a thief, one indulges in thievery. When someone says he hates thievery, it means he hates the thief, too, doesn’t it? Thus, [my stand is] Brahminism grew out of the Brahmin and I am striving to annihilate the root.”

There are several such passages from his writings and there are videos of his speeches where he was advocating mass-murder of Brahmins. Such is the character of the person on whom your esteemed university is holding a conference. I have absolutely no problem with that, but the speakers included in the conference are all apologists of this hateful Nazi and they have never once said that he was wrong in advocating the total annihilation of Tamil Brahmins who number about two million.

Thus, if your university is for upholding academic integrity, it should ask the sponsors of the conference either to cancel the conference or to include persons who will speak about the racist, Nazi facet of Periyar E V Ramasamy.

Thank you,

Yours Faithfully,

P A Krishnan

LETTER FROM LONDON SWAMINATHAN

WORLD HINDU MAHA SANGAM, LONDON

World Hindu Maha Sangam, UK Branch, registers its protest against the conference organised by your Wolverhampton University under the title “ Anti-caste Thought : Theory, Politics and Culture” to be held on October 29th and 30th 2021 for the following reasons:

The conference is going to project E V Ramasami Naicker aka Periyar as a hero in spite of his immoral background. He married his own FOSTER DAUGHTER which split his movement and the present ruling party of Tamil Nadu (state in India) DMK is one of its splinter groups.

His so-called anti caste stand was against only one caste ‘Brahmins’. He instigated violence against that community.

His so-called anti caste speeches did not make any difference. Every year more and more castes are included in the Backward list at their own request. They are millionaires but claim all the benefits as backward castes.

He was Anti Mahatma Gandhi. He criticised him severely.

He was anti Jews and supported Hitler

He was anti India and passed resolution asking the British to continue their rule in India.

He called Tamil a barbarian language.

He showed dis respect to Tamil’s holy book Tirukkural.

He called Theists ‘Scoundrels’.

His statues in front of Hindu temples carries obscene statements about God and its worshippers. It is an insult to all Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists and Hindus.

This conference will tarnish your university’s image and do irreparable damage.

So we request you to cancel the conference or postpone it so that opposition views are given due representation on a future date.

As a university in a democratic country, we expect you to give chance to your students to hear both the views so that your students get a balanced picture.

Hope you act immediately to take a right decision.

Thanking You,

LETTER FROM S NAGARAJAN , BENGALURU

ஒல்வர்ஹாம்ப்டன் பல்கலைக் கழகத்திற்கு ஒரு கடிதம்!

ச.நாகராஜன்

கீழ்க்கண்ட கடிதம் என்னால் இன்று ஒல்வர்ஹாம்ப்டன் பல்கலைக் கழகத்திற்கு அனுப்பப்பட்டுள்ளது.

இப்படிப்பட்ட கண்டனக் கடிதங்களை அனுப்ப வேண்டிய முகவரி:  castefree@wlv.ac.uk

ஹிந்துக்கள் “ரொம்பவும் நல்லவர்களாக” இருக்க வேண்டிய அவசியமில்லை. ராக்ஷஸர்களை சில சமயம் எதிர்த்துப் போரிடத் தான் வேண்டும் – பல லட்சம் கொலைகளைத் தடுக்க! 

“வெற்றியேயன்றி வேறெதும் பெறுகிலேம்” தர்மத்தின் வாழ்வதனைச் சூது கவ்வும்; மறுபடி தர்மமே வெல்லும்!”

இதோ கடிதம்:- 

Request to cancel the proposed online “ Anti-caste Thought : Theory, Politics and Culture Conference by your esteemed University

Dear Madam Meena Dhanda,

Greetings to you.

1.     The proposed two day online conference titled “ Anti-caste Thought : Theory, Politics and Culture” to be held on October 29th and 30th 2021, sponsored by your esteemed institution Wolverhamption University, is highly deplorable and unwanted. The reasons are sited out in this letter. If you are misinformed, this is right time to take corrective action.

2. I introduce myself as a writer. I have written 5000 articles (4750 in Tamil language and 250 in English) in about 46 magazines for the past 51 years. I have published 27 printed books. My 61 digital books are also well received by the general public throughout the world.

3.The caste difference never existed in India. I have shown this in my articles numbering about 300 with literature evidence/proof, quoting original lines from Sangam Tamil literature till date that there was no such difference at all. The difference was artificially created by Mogul invaders and later by British to have their own advantage and to promote their vested interests.

4. Every religion has got ‘caste’ difference. Christianity which boasts of itself that it has no caste difference, has differences too. The converted Christians are allowed to enter only in some allotted churches and they are prohibited to enter into other churches in the coastal area of Tamilnadu. The converted Christians are having umpteen no of caste differences. They have divisions such as Catholics, Protestants, Fatima etc etc. also. The Islam also has such differences and they have Rauthar, Shia,Sunny, Ahmadia etc.  They can’t enter into other mosques other than the allotted mosques for them. Especially in Islam  no woman is  allowed to enter into the any of the mosque.

Why you have not highlighted the above points in any of the topics, one wonders!

As such, it seems, the conference is targeting only Hinduism and its practices and especially Brahmins.

5. E.V.Ramasamy Naicker (periyar) is 100% Brahmin hatred. He carried his caste name Naicker always with his name Ramasamy . He insisted that 3% of the Brahmins are to be wiped out even if they have to sacrifice 3% non brahmins in this cause so that the remaining 97% non brahmins will survive in this battle. This means that he induced people to kill 3% of Brahmins, physically. He is so inhuman.

He was against India’s Independence and begged British not to leave the country. He was all against the Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhiji. He was so notorious and makes one feel Hitler is good. His 3500 pages writings (lectures and articles) are all available. He has written that Tamil is a Barbaric language. He also propagated that there is no GOD and who worship GOD is a rascal.

E.V.Ramasamy Naicker was against all women. He insisted that the womb of every woman should be cut/removed and they must be allowed to live (to have sex) with all. He also wanted father to marry his own daughter or mother his own son. He married one Maniyammai, a young girl, who was very very younger to him by age. He consulted Rajaji, the veteran freedom fighter of India, as to how a father could marry his daughter!

The proposed conference is projecting E.V.Ramasamy Naicker. And hence the proposed conference must have, we suspect, ulterior motives. The speakers are all, it seems one sided. Why this biased conference? Is it to misuse/use the funds to degrade Hinduism and to spread hatred?

6. The proposed conference will cause your esteemed University an irrepairable damage. So I request you to withdraw your proposal and cancel the forthcoming conference.

If not we will be forced to put E.V.Ramasamy Naicker,Robert De Nobile etc  in their right perspectives quoting  their own writings. So far, people like me, kept quiet, considering that we should not throw stones on mud which will spread hatred against hatred.

But we may have to reconsider our stand because conference like yours may cause millions and millions of people die/suffer as was done by Hitler during 1939-1945.  We will publish their original writings with date and source.

You are welcome to clarify on any of the above points.

 Cancelling  the conference will avoid an embarrassment to you because every article will start with your University’s name as the cause of such article/s.

Thanking you and with regards

 S. Nagarajan
