Prof Ilaiah speaks out on his commitment to his cause

Press Release                        

                O BHARATIYA BRAHMINS

***

O Brahmins of Bharath and the World

You want to crucify me

Knowing that I can’t resurrect,

As I am not Jesus Christ.

But, I will follow that Star,

As I am an Indian Shepherd.

I will not destroy your temples

But, I will destroy all our shackles

As I follow only the God of Equality.

Good, you tell as lies about me

You abuse me as Iligadu

I do not abuse the abuser,

But, lay down my life for the abused.

I turn my inside out

I am now Ilaiah Shepherd*

KanchaIlaiah Shepherd.

* Dedicated to Dalitbahujan&Adivasis of India

(Released on 21st May, 2016 (Saturday) in a meeting of all Dalitbahujans, Students, Writers and Women Organizations at SundaraiahVignanaKendram (SVK), Hyderabad, after the Brahmin Organizations came to my office at Maulana Azad National Urdu University, and burnt my effigies in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State)

KanchaIlaiah Shepherd
