ANTI - BRAHMANISM, THE NEW COMMUNALISM OF MODERN INDIA
At the same time Brahmin temple priests in India today are among the poorest of the poor, comparable only with untouchables in what they earn. To condemn Brahmins as the Indian equivalent of the Western higher classes is very misleading. They have been higher only in education, which is cultivated in Brahmanical families. In this regard the hatred of the Brahmins in India resembles hatred of the Jews in Europe. 

The Jews like the Brahmins are more educated and higher achievers than other groups and therefore jealousy arises against them, though the Brahmins never achieved an economic power like the Jews. A number of leaders of modern India, like Nehru and his family, were of Brahmin ancestry. This has caused some to perceive a Brahmin dominance of modern India. But these figures were only nominal Brahmins. 

In fact the rule of the Nehru family implemented anti-Brahmin policies, and no one in the Nehru dynasty was a practicing Brahmin. We should remember that Karl Marx was a Jew but this does not make communism pro-Jewish. In fact such anti-Brahmin Brahmins are often the most vociferous anti-Brahmins because they are trying to deny their own heritage.
