Centre's restrictions bordering on Nazism, says writer

Sweeping restrictions on food habits, family life and civil rights is nothing but Nazism, said writer Banjagere Jayaprakash.

He was speaking at the inauguration of the convention on ‘Indian Democracy in the grip of Hitler, Nazism’, organised by the district unit of the Dalit Sangarsha Samiti here on Tuesday.

“There are indications that the NDA government at the Centre would like to impose such restrictions. Each person has his own way of living and it should be respected. If beef is banned, at least 50% of the people in India will suffer from malnutrition. In ancient times Brahmins themselves ate beef. In an epic, Gowthama Maharshi asks Rama who comes as a guest to his ashrama, about his choice among the calves for cooking.

In the Vedas also it is said that all meat, except that of camel and donkey, can be consumed. Even today, while Brahmins of Assam consume sheep meat, Konkani Brahmins eat fish. Food habits depend on one’s geographical factors,” said Jayaprakash.

“Privatisation is being used as a tool to defeat the objectives of the Constitution through the backdoor. It is a conspiracy to end reservation without amending the Constitution. In the private sector, all top jobs will go to the upper caste people, while the downtrodden will have to be satisfied with lesser jobs. Demonetisation of higher denomination currency notes was a ploy to weaken the Opposition parties. Thus the BJP won in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls,” he said.
