ANTI - BRAHMANISM, THE NEW COMMUNALISM OF MODERN INDIA
The basic values that the idea of Brahmin class represents, like truthfulness, simplicity, austerity and compassion, are good and laudable in any enlightened culture. No one should be criticized for trying to implement them. If Brahmins should be criticized, it is for not living up to the spiritual values of their class, not because such values exist. The lack of spiritual values in India, the lack of Dharma has caused the problem, not the existence of one class or another.

However, for a thousand years of anti-Brahminism, the Brahmins have not disappeared. This is because behind the Brahmin class are spiritual values, which however often people fail to live up to them, cannot be ignored. The idea of a class of society devoted to spiritual pursuits, standing above financial and political motives, is a great idea that needs to be instituted again in one form or another all over the world.

Indian society needs integration. This requires that each group in the country recognizes both its faults and its contributions. But only if there is a common national cause, can there be national integration and if this is based upon excluding or demoting the Brahmins, it cannot possibly succeed.
