Mul Bhartiya Vichar Manch :
Nativist D.D.Raut 's opinion on review of Google book - Untouchables By Dr BR Ambedkar
The Untouchables is a great work of Dr . B.R.Ambedkar . In the beginning itself he mentions Indo - Aryan society differentiating two people namely Indo or Hindu and Aryan that is followers for Manu Smriti the Brahmins . The Native Hindu Civilization and VIdeshi Brahmin Aryan Vikruti admixture was the subject of his book where Native people are treated as Untouchables .
He finds that Untouchables were first Native Tribes and aboriginal . He agrees to the concept of Videshi Brahmin invasion of Hindo or Hindustan by Videshi Brahmin Aryans . The words found like Dravid , Dasa , Nag also relates to Native people .
However , for untouchable he believes that it is creation post Buddhist period and Buddhist and those continued Beef eating were the main reasons of for this . His genesis of origin of Untouchable looks convincing yet the problem of Videshi Brahmin Aryans is not only a problem of Untouchable alone but whole Non Brahmins as Hindus they suffered a lot under Varn and Caste system .
Dr Ambedkar wrote a famous book How were Shudras . In that he has already clarified that they were not untouchable but sufferers like Kshtriya and Vaishya . But when linked all works of Dr Ambedkar together like Hindu Code Book , Untouchables and Shudras we come to conclusion that as he rightly pointed out in the beginning of his book as Indo - Aryan society that is called Hindu Civilization due to majority Hindu Non Brahmin Aryan population, all Hindus are Native people and only Brahmins are Videshi Aryans . We too agree to Dr Ambedkar's this conclusion . He is a great independent thinker and true historian.

In his early career he was an economist, professor, and lawyer. His later life was marked by his political activities, where he became involved in the negotiations for India's independence campaigning by publishing journals advocating political rights and social freedom for untouchables and contributing significantly to the establishment of the state of India. In 1956 he converted to Buddhism, initiating mass conversions of Dalits.
