Hindutva leaders want reservations for ever
I'm continuing my investigation of the claim that Hindutva opposes the caste system.
Here's a key extract from Advani's speech on reservations:
"In addition to continuing with reservations in jobs and education for SCs, STs and OBCs" [Taken from Advani's own blog post]
What else need be said?
Ambedkar wanted reservations for 10 years, but Hindutva leaders believe strongly in the caste system and want reservations for ever.
Had Hindutva leaders genuinely opposed the caste system, they would have demanded abolition of reservations accompanied by equal education for all, and greater economic liberty. On all these things, they have taken the anti-liberty position.
