Dr.B.R.AMBEDKAR

‘Mook Nayak’(The Leader of the Dumb)

To proclaim and to bring to light the humiliations suffered by the ‘untouchalbes’ and to fight for equal rights, a periodical called ‘Mook Nayak’ was started. Ambedkar gave his support to it. He wrote in the first issued of this paper, "The Hindu Society is like a tower of many stories. It has neither a ladder nor a door to go out…. A Society which believes the God exists even in inanimate things, also says that people who are a part of that very society should not be touched!’

By this time there were signs that the Hindu Society was beginning tounderstand that ‘untouchability’ is unjust.

Sahu Maharaj of Kolhapur made arrangements for the free education of the ‘untouchables’ and secured jobs for many of them.

In 1924, Veer Savarkar, a great fighter for freedom, was released from the Andaman prison; he also began to fight against ‘untouchability’.

Mahatma Gandhi also was taking practical steps to wipe out ‘untouchability’.
