You must destroy the religion of the Shrutis and the Smrutis. Nothing else will avail.
Hinduism is a veritable chamber of horrors and it must die for caste to vanish.
I believe in religion of liberty, equality and fraternity.
— Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar
On December 25, 1927, Babasaheb Ambedkar burned Manusmriti as a symbol of rejection of the religious basis of untouchability. The event was arranged during the Mahad Satyagraha. Mahad Satyagraha was a fight to assert the Dalits’ right to access public water, and to embrace humanity and dignity. For Babasaheb—a staunch advocate of women’s rights and emancipation—it was a political action to burn Manusmriti publicly as he believed that the book entailed the rules preaching inhumane treatment not only towards women but also Dalits, in private as well as public sphere.
