Minorities Rights Day 2021: Powerful quotes by Dr BR Ambedkar

Every year on December 18, India celebrates Minority Rights Day. This day’s purpose is to keep the rights of the nation’s minority populations. In 1992, the United Nations issued the Statement on the Rights of Individuals Belonging to Religious, Ethnic, or Linguistic Minorities.

The Government of India established the National Commission for Minorities the same year. The GOI later formed the Ministry of Minority Affairs on January 26, 2006.

In India, five religious communities Christians, Sikhs, Muslims, Zoroastrians, and Buddhists have been notified as minority communities.

Powerful quotes by Dr BR Ambedkar

On the occasion of Minorities Rights Day in India 2021, here are some powerful quotes by Dr BR Ambedkar.

  • “The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends.”
  • “If I find the constitution being misused, I shall be the first to burn it.”
  • “People’s freedom of conscience and right to freely profess, practise and propagate religion – subject to public order, morality and other Fundamental Rights”
  • “Freedom of minority-managed educational institutions from discrimination in the matter of receiving aid from the State”
  • “Prohibition of discrimination against citizens on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth”
  • “The history of India is nothing but a history of a mortal conflict between Buddhism and Brahminism”.
  • “Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise, both will wither and die.”
  • “So long as you do not achieve social liberty, whatever freedom is provided by the law is of no avail to you.”
  • “Caste is not a physical object like a wall of bricks or a line of barbed wire which prevents the Hindus from co-mingling and which has, therefore, to be pulled down. Caste is a notion; it is a state of the mind.”
  • “Law and order are the medicine of the body politic and when the body politic gets sick, medicine must be administered.”
  • “Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise both will wither and die.”
  • “Every man who repeats the dogma of Mill that one country is no fit to rule another country must admit that one class is not fit to rule another class.”
  • “The history of India is nothing but a history of a mortal conflict between Buddhism and Brahminism.”
  • “What are we having this liberty for? We are having this liberty in order to reform our social system, which is full of inequality, discrimination and other things, which conflict with our fundamental rights.”
