Mass riots in one of the states of India

37
Mass riots erupted in India - in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Edition The Times of India reports that thousands of protesters took to the streets of the cities of this state in order to carry out, by the government, no less, caste reform. We are talking about representatives of the Kapu ethnosocial group expressing dissatisfaction with the fact that they, unlike representatives of individual castes, are prohibited from applying for high government positions in the allocated quotas and studying in prestigious universities, including foreign ones.


Indian media write that when the protesters realized that the authorities were not going to introduce a mouth guard to the number of privileged castes of India, riots and clashes with the police broke out. Protesters set fire to several police stations (15 law enforcement officers were injured), then blocked the Chennai-Calcutta highway.

Around 2, thousands of protesters paralyzed the movement of trains in the area of ​​the cities of Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada. Initially, there was a “sit-down” strike - the protesters simply sat on the rails. And then after someone from the crowd had the idea to set fire to the approaching train. It turned out to be one of the Indian express trains.

            The fact of the matter is that tolerance has reached India. Now it’s unfashionable to be representatives of the higher castes. Remember the scandal when it turned out that the Prime Minister of India, Modi, concealed that he was from the Brahmin caste.
            For representatives of the lower castes in India, special quotas have been introduced in universities, bureaucratic places, etc. Apparently, these Kapu believe that they were offended, not attributed to the lower cards and accordingly deprived of cats and privileges.
            Insanity in the world is growing stronger everywhere. Soon the ordinary person will not have any life at all, all places will be reserved for sexual, national and some other minorities.

As for the caste issue, the Indians, and without any outside influence, can gnaw each other's throats because of this.

        . “The last time information about the number of castes was published in 1931. (3000 castes). But this figure does not necessarily include all local podcasts that function as independent social groups. ”
        3000 castes! that’s where the work is for agents of influence. Money can be written off on cookies nemeryano.
        Kapu - Farmers (Andhra)
        “Initially, the term caste was applied to class-racial groups in the colonies of Latin America. Later, by analogy, it spread to a similar phenomenon in India and since then it has been used mainly in relation to Indian varns and / or jatis. Mixing between Indian varnas was in most cases unacceptable, between jati (subsections of varnas) was sharply limited.
        From the earliest works of Sanskrit literature it is known that the peoples who spoke Aryan dialects during the initial settlement of India (from about 1500 to 1200 BC) were already divided into four main classes, later called “varns” (Sanskrit “color”) : brahmanas (clergy), kshatriyas (warriors), vaisyas (merchants, herders and farmers) and sudras (servants and laborers).
        Hindus believe in reincarnation and believe that those who follow the rules of their caste will rise to a higher caste in the future life, the same one who violates these rules will lose social status.
        Neither the Muslim invasion, which ended with the formation of the Mughal empire, nor the establishment of British rule dominated the fundamental foundations of the caste organization of society.
        There is literally no number to the Indian castes. Since each named caste is divided into many podcasts, it is impossible to even approximately calculate the number of social units that have the minimum necessary features of jati. The last time information about the number of castes was published in 1931. (3000 castes). But this figure does not necessarily include all local podcasts that function as independent social groups.
        The position taken by the INC and the government of India after the death of Mahatma Gandhi is contradictory. Moreover, universal suffrage and the need for politicians to support the electorate have given new significance to the corporate spirit and internal cohesion of the castes.
        Nevertheless, despite the fact that castes have existed in India for more than two millennia, their influence and significance in society (especially in cities) are gradually lost, although this process is rather slow in rural areas. State bodies do not have the right to be interested in the caste affiliation of a person, instead of the concept of caste (jati), the term “community” is used in documents. The caste hierarchy is preserved only in the sphere of ritual and private life, regulating the everyday and religious relations of Hindus. ”

    I'm wondering ...
    We are talking about representatives of the ethnic group Kapu, expressing dissatisfaction with the fact that, unlike representatives of individual castes, they are forbidden to apply for high government posts in the allocated quotas and study at prestigious universities, including foreign ones.

    Indian media write that when protesters realized that the authorities were not going to impose a cap on India’s privileged castes, riots and clashes broke out with the police.


    Even if the government puts this caste in a privileged position, do these people really think that all members of the caste will immediately begin to study in the best universities and occupy high posts ... It will still be available to units, and not the fact that the most worthy .. A. And set fire to the train is frank crime and the authorities will definitely not forget about it.

    It is strange that this caste was bypassed. Kasta kapu - farmers. This means that it occupies one of the highest places in the list of the lower castes. Farmers in India, although they were at the bottom of the social ladder, were considered "clean", unlike, for example, butchers or furriers and leatherworkers. In addition, the kapu are either Tamils ​​or Telugu, that is, they are quite white and Caucasoid
