ANTI - BRAHMINISM, THE NEW COMMUNALISM OF MODERN INDIA
A new communalism and social prejudice has come to grip modern India, which appears to be acceptable to most groups both inside and outside the country. This is anti-Brahminism, the idea that the Brahmins are the bad guys or villains, and that the difficulty any other groups may experience in India is through no fault of their own but simply due to their oppression at the hands of the cruel Brahmins.

Brahmins are vilified in negative slogans and stereotypes as oppressors, higher class villains, fascists and Nazis. Not only the Hindu lower classes and untouchables but Muslim and Christian minorities commonly portray the Brahmins as their oppressors, as do leftist groups in India. Most of the problems of modern India are attributed to the religious, social and economic oppression allegedly perpetrated by the cruel Brahmins, and the Brahmins are not given credit with anything good.

Laws are passed to restrict the number of Brahmins in the educational system and in various occupations and promote the number of non-Brahmins, as if this were the magic route to social equality and social advancement. Brahmins of high merit are excluded, while members of other social groups are preferred even if they have no corresponding merit. These restrictions on Brahmins in India are probably more extreme than any quota system or affirmative action anywhere in the world.
