An Awakening Call to Brahmans
Beware: Danger to the Existence and Challenges to our Self Esteem
Date: 9th July 2012
Some of the Anti social elements of non-Brahman community, represented by persons like Purushottam Khedekar, A.H.Salunkhe, Madan Patil, Shreemant Kokate, Dr.Balaji Jadhav, M.M.Deshmukh etc. are nowadays regularly engaged in maligning the image of the Brahman’s. They are publishing Articles and Books, containing malicious, baseless, non-historical, insulting & palpably wrong writings full of hatred. It appears that a big campaign is being run to destroy the Status and Goodwill of the Brahman community. All this is being done under the name of Right of Freedom of Expression.
To give an idea of the kind of disgusting comments that are made against us, some of them from the book titled “Shivarayanchya Badanamichi Kendre” and other books are quoted below.
Brahman’s are Impotent, dishonest, pervert and disloyal. Page no. 34.
(Ref. Medical Science and science of Humanity)
Women from High Society Brahman families are provided to Rich persons, Businessmen, and others, by their Family heads, for sexual satisfaction. (Page no.35)
Riots should be held against the Brahmans, and All non-brahmans including Muslims, Christian should gather together to fight such Religious and caste Riots. (Page no.54)
All the Brahmans should be ousted not only from Maharashtra but from India. They should be killed and their localities should be destroyed. (Page no.54 & 55).
Referance : Other Books
- Sant Tukaram was killed by Brahman followers of Sant Ramdas.
- Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was poisoned and killed by Brahmans. Sant Ramdas Swami was spying for Mughal Emperor Aurangjeb. Swatntryaveer Savarkar was a Toilet Hero.
- Dadoji Konddev was loyal servant of Aadilshah, who looted and burnt Pune.
We as a community, tolerated all this non-sense for long, but now is the time to retaliate, Otherwise, this vicious propaganda might get considered as a part of History. Are we going to accept this mutely? No, we should NOT tolerate this ANYMORE.
These fanatic elements dare to do this only because we are NOT united. We are perceived as WEAK and vulnerable. This is the time to get United, and do something to make these persons aware that henceforth we are not going to take things lying down.
Taking forward this initiative, I with the active support from some of our community, have filed Suits of Defamation ( Criminal ) and for Character Assassination – with compensation ( Civil ) in Kalyan Court against the writer, publisher and the Govt. of Maharashtra as well.
I appeal to you ALL to unite and give us a strength to fight against such malicious elements.
Lord Parshuram, the Deity of All Brahmans has always fought for the causes of not only for Brahmans but also for the society as a whole. He had proficiency in Vedic scriptures required for Brahmans and had also acquired skills & mastery about the weapons and warfares required for the Kshatriyas.
He showed exemplary bravery, and won several wars against insolent Kshatriyas to protect Vaidik Dharma. It is our Duty to not only preserve his Legacy but follow it in practice whenever there is a threat to Brahmans existence. We should be proud of being born as a Brahman, and should also live like a Brahman to get the deserved respect from other communities. Brahman as a community has always been with the Society for the overall progress and well-being of all, and hence even after such malicious allegations will answer them in a legal and democratic way.
The Book in which our community has been insulted and maligned, carries the images of Maharashtra Vidhansabha and Mantralaya on its front cover. This is highly inappropriate and we decided to raise an issue and make a protest by informing as much of our community members as possible and held one Meeting at Dombivli on 10th August,2011 which was headed by Mr. Charudatt Aaphale, a Renowned Kirtankar. Thereafter on 20th September, we held one Protest Meeting at Indira Chowk, Dombivli, attended by 300 Brahmans under the leadership of Local BJP MLA Mr. Ravindra Chavan. Dr. Sachchidanand Shevade a noted writer also expressed his strong views.
At both the meetings, Mr. Madhav Ghule , Executive President of Chitpawan Brahman Sangh, and Past President of Brahman Mahasangh, Dombivali declared that he has decided to fight the cases against Mr. Khedekar and others when MLA Mr. Chavan promised him of giving required support. Some Legal professionals from Kalyan and Titwala met together for this cause and discussed the issue of filing Civil and Criminal cases at Kalyan. With the expert opinion of senior Advocates like Mr. Suresh Patwardhan, Mrs. Sudha Joshi, both from Kalyan and Mr. Shreerang Khambete from Titwala, it was decided to initiate legal proceedings and a First Criminal Case ( No.118/2011 Court No.3 ) was filed on 4th November 2011 at Kalyan Sessions Court against writer Mr. Khedekar and publisher Mr.Kadu. Within a month’s time another three
cases of similar nature were filed by Adv. Dabke, Adv. Jogalekar, and Adv. Dube at Kalyan Sessions Court. On 14th Nov.2011, a Civil Case ( No.571/2011) was filed in the District Court, Kalyan, by Mr. Madhav Ghule and Mr. Pradnyesh Prabhughate.
It may be noted here that, the Legal process will continue to take it’s own course and we will have to follow it up persistently to get Justice. The win in Legal Battle will put the True picture before the Society at large and will definitely boost Morale of our Community. Therefore, we Appeal to All to extend their support by contributing in the Legal process by participating in person sharing their views, by filing suits at different Taluka / Zilla session court and or by assisting financially.
Details of the cases are given below for your information:
- Defamation : Case No. 118/2011 Court No.3 (Exp. incurred approx. Rs. 1,000/-)

The defendants were absent even on the hearing dtd.17th,March. On 28th May a warrant was issued against publisher and a summons against writer. On the next date of Hearing on 27th June, 2012, since the defendants did not appear the warrant was served to remain present on 28th July 2012. However, on 5th June, the defendants filed a revision application in Kalyan court seeking for stay, which was heard in presence of their lawyer, On 30th June, where we opposed a stay by filing an Affidavit. This was upheld by Hon’ble court and issued a warrant to remain present in person on 21st July 2012.

Efforts are being made to file cases of similar nature at all the district centres of Maharashtra, and would be filed soon at Nagpur, Jalgaon, Nandurbar, Khopoli, Panvel, Mulund, Thane, and Mumbai as the representatives of these towns have shown some interest in doing so.
In this context I would like to make it clear to all my Brahman brothers and sisters that, this act of mine is with full thought and responsibility and hence expect your co-operation support and guidance. Ours being a so called secular country enjoying the status of biggest democracy, I can not tolerate deliberate attempts to defame the brahman cult as a whole, who for hundreds of years have sacrificed their lives for the nation and well being of the society and who are staunch nationalists.
I also feel that, it is the responsibility of every brahman to resist with full strength against such acts promptly as otherwise there is a danger of such acts becoming history in future. This is a sort of a Gobel’s technique of propaganda.
We therefore not only have to be cautions but have to be proactive for taking timely action against such erroneous acts. Truly speaking, no individual or association of persons of any caste and creed should even utter such baseless, non historical and insulting words against each other. However, the Ruling authorities and the Hon’ble court must take a note and intervene in order to maintain harmony and high order of humanity in the society.
I, now seek your personal opinion and response enable put a curb on such misdoings: you are free to contact me for any information, explanation and due co-operation in the above context.
