Dalits were upper castes: BJP leader

[h=1]Dalits were upper castes: BJP leader[/h][h=2]Spokesman goes into 'origins’ of untouchability[/h]Were Dalits pushed into “unclean occupations” because they refused to bow before “Muslim invaders” and convert to Islam in medieval times, thus making them “untouchables”? This is how BJP’s national spokesperson Bizay Sonkar Shastri explains the origin of “untouchability” in India.

“Their (‘medieval Muslim invaders’) biggest hurdle in India was its Hinduism. In particular, the Brahmins – who were defenders of culture and religion – and Kshatriyas, who were defenders of geographical boundaries. They were forced to embrace Islam.
Atrocities were committed on them,” Mr. Shastri told The Hinduin a freewheeling chat.

“Some Brahmins and Kshatriyas decided they would not accept Islam at any cost – even if they die. To destroy their dharmabhiman (religious pride), swabhiman (self-respect) andrashtraabhiman (pride in nationality), they were forced into carrying the night soil and engage in leather-work. This is how Scheduled Castes were created.”

Well-known member
i.e. the present day Scheduled castes are the descendent of erstwhile Brahmins and Kshatriyas who refused to oblige the

Muslims in those days.

present day Scheduled castes are given the benefit of reservation.

The corollary is that the erstwhile Brahmins and Kshatriyas are provided with reservation.

This is the story of how reservation is provided to (erstwhile) Brahmins and Kshatriyas by the BJP.
