    Noida: Axes, hand guns and batons were flaunted at a rally by a Hindutva organisation called Brahmin Ekta Manch to showcase its strength. One day after Ambedkar Jayanti (April 14), and on the day protests are being held against the brutal rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua, Jammu, and Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, this upper caste rally was full of motorbikes and SUVs fluttering with saffron flags.

    Asked about their programme and why they were blocking roads and traffic, one of the participants boasted about a 4,000 year-old Hindu tradition and declared that to preserve it “they would go to any extent”.

    Most of the participants belonged to the ‘upper caste’ Brahmin community, and the event was inaugurated by BJP leader and Union culture minister Mahesh Sharma, who happens to be the elected MP from Noida. With pride, he held aloft an axe and posed for a photograph.

    The axe was the weapon that the mythical sage Parasuram used on his journey. An incarnation of Vishnu, Parasuram was a Brahmin and his credo was to rid the earth of evil.

    Parasuram’s mythical birthday falls on April 18, but the Brahmin Ekta Manch chose to celebrate it on Sunday, April 15, as they thought they could gather more supporters.

    In the rally, handguns were openly flaunted, as were the axes. The images I shot reflect the changing idea of religion among a section of upper caste Hindus. That this change is occurring at a time when upper caste groups are flaunting their muscle power against the minorities and Dalits, especially in North India, is not a coincidence.

    According to the law, no arms larger than 5 inches in dimension can be displayed in public, except when Sikhs carry a kripan/sword for religious reasons. But the display of axes and guns at the Noida event was done openly, that too in the presence of a Union minister and the police.

    At the same venue where the Brahmin Ekta Manch was flexing its muscles and preparing to launch a Rath Yatra, a few hundred of men and women from Noida stood protesting an upcoming Solid Land Fill at Noida Sector 123. Minister Sharma paid them no heed.

    An outsider like you and uneducated to boot will never get the delicious irony in this situation.

    Parashuram was noted for murdering every kshatriya warrior on earth, not once but several times over. The modern-day Brahmin-sponsored kshatriyas are the Rajputs, or Thakurs, one of whom is the elected Chief Minister of UP, the most populous state with the most contributions to the BJP and the RSS seats in Parliament, another of whom is the main accused in the ghastly rape and violence at Unnao, where the victim's father was beaten to death by the kshatriya leader's brother in front of the police.

    It is BJP/RSS leaders like Mahesh Sharma who will hasten the death of this dreadful nightmare of an administration.
