Contribution of Dr B.R. Ambedkar in the Indian Freedom Struggle

contribution of Dr B.R. Ambedkar in the Indian freedom struggle

Dr B.R Ambedkar contributed towards the upliftment of all Indians in ways that NO other leader or social reformer did or could. Since this question is specifically about what he contributed towardsthe Indian freedom struggle, I'll just focus on this, ONE OF MANY, contributions


MOST ASSUMED THAT HE DIDN'T or his contributions were negligible.

quote by the greatest Indian freedom fighter

Read the following quote by the greatest Indian freedom fighter carefully (especially the last word).
"After giving deep thought to the problem, EVERYBODY WILL HAVE TO ADMIT THAT: Conversion is necessary to the Untouchables as self-government is to India. The ultimate object of both is the same. There is not the slightest difference in their ultimate goal. This ultimate aim is to attain FREEDOM ."-- Babasaheb Dr BR Ambedkar (1935 Speech).
Today you will discover two ‘secrets’ that have never been taught in any school before and will never be taught by the dominant classes in India.


  1. Dr B.R. Ambedkar was the ONLY PERSON to fight for the freedom of ALL INDIANS AND

In this respect, his struggle for the freedom of ALL Indians, he declared as early as 1935 and again one year later in 1936 at the Nasik conference, Maharashtra

DR Ambedkar is the ONLY PERSON to have saved India from permanently staying in the dark ages where social and scientific progress would have been impossible, as it had been since the decline of the Mauryan empire in Jambudeep, the land that is now called Bharat or India.

DR Ambedkar saved India from the greatest imaginable tragedy by NOT participating in the struggle for freedom JUST FOR THE DOMINANT CLASS, the Brahmins.

He wanted every single Indian to be free

To fully appreciate the gravity of what has been said so far, you must first know the real reasons why the Brahmins hated the British and why they wanted them to quit India. Never before did the Brahmins rebel against any other foreign ruler so vehemently. In fact they enjoyed mutually beneficial relationships with all previous invaders and were even happy to give their daughters in wedlock to the foreigners as long as they maintained the social structure designed by the Brahmins. Only the British were hard to convince.

  • On 16th May 1775, under the East India regulatory act 1773, Nand kumar Dev became the FIRST EVER BRAHMIN TO BE CONVICTED OF MURDER. Prior to this date the Brahmins had exclusive impunity from state prosecution regardless of the crime.
  •  1795: For the FIRST TIME since the decline of the Ashokan empire, Shudras were granted the right to own property
  •  1804: Female infanticide banned.
  •  1813: Slavery abolished
  •  Also in 1813: Right to education for all granted
  • 1819: A ban was put on the archaic custom of a Brahmin spending the first three nights with the newly wed Shudra bride
  • 1830: Human sacrificial rituals made illegal
  • 1835: Compulsory offering of the first born son of a Shudra to the river Ganga made illegal
  •  Also in 1835 on 7th of March, Lord Macaulay fought for and won the right to higher education for Shudras & untouchables and the right to learn English for all non Brahmins.

Under this newly found freedom to education, the iconoclast JYOTIRAO PHULE became the first person to successfully complete matriculation becoming the most educated person from the 'OBC Catagory'.

DR B.R AMBEDKAR was one of the first from the so called untouchable class to be allowed to enrol for a degree under the same right to higher education and Perunthalaivar M.C. Rajah being the first degree holder of the Scheduled Community in India. [ B.A in Madras Christian College, Chennai in 1900 ]

  •  The British banned the custom of ‘sati’ in which it was obligatory for the widow of the deceased to be burnt to death

The continual amendments by the Brits to these draconian anti-humanity laws became a great source of worry for the Brahmins. Its about time they started a movement to kick them out. Ambedkar, on the other hand, had TWO freedoms to fight for. Firstly, he wanted independence from the 2-3 % Brahmins and following that, independence from the British.

The first and strongest advocate of Swaraj ("self-rule") was a Chitpavan Brahmin, Bal Gangadhar Tilak (1856-1920); also know as Lokmanya. He was known as "the father of Indian unrest" by the British.


The Age of Consent Act, 1891, also Act X of 1891, was a legislation enacted in British India on 19 March 1891 which raised the age of consent from 10 years for sexual intercourse for all girls, married or unmarried, to twelve years of age in all jurisdictions.
The Chitpavan Brahmins, with Tilak as their leader, were against this 1891 Age of Consent bill, seeing it as INTERFERENCE with Hinduism and a dangerous precedent.

No wonder the Brahmins were the only ones who wanted to expel just the British from India. For then, they would once again become the lawmakers and live as gods.

Whereas, Dr Ambedkar was the ONLY person who truly struggled for the freedom of ALL Indians from ALL dictators, giving special attention to the rights of women and the deprived castes in what was to become an “Independent” country. It is no wonder that for this reason, the masses began to refer to Ambedkar-the-Great as Babasaheb, meaning respected father (grandfather in some areas) for he attended to their needs as a loving father would do In his struggle for freedom, Dr Ambedkar earned a special place in the hearts of the poor and the deprived, the downtrodden victims of grave atrocities, the oppressed and the suppressed, the mentally crushed and broken, the women and widows, the workers, the orphans, and the disabled.

Had Dr Ambedkar been unsuccessful in securing those rights for the common person, it is evident that India would not have been an independent country. There would simply have been a PERMANENT TRANSFER OF POWER from the British to the most ardent dictators, the Brahmins on 15th August 1947.



It was not until the 26th January 1950, when the constitution of India came into force that India truly became an independent democratic country free from both, the British and the Brahmanic rule.

On 15th August 1947 the British were replaced by the Brahmins. On 26th January 1950 India gained complete freedom, officially freeing itself from the Brahmanic rule too. So the true Indian independence day is 26th January 1950 and not 15th August 1947 as is commonly assumed and vehemently promotion by successive governments dominated by Brahmins.

The Indian Independence Act 1947 states that 15th August 1947 shall be called THE APPOINTMENT DAY (NOT Independence Day).

  • Re point (3) above : Lord Mountbatten became the first Governor-General of India. Dr Ambedkar’s Speech on the Indian constitution
  • Muhammed All Jinnah was CHOSEN to be the Governor-General of Pakistan
  • Jawaharlal Nehru was also CHOSEN (not elected) to be the prime minister of India
On 25th Nov 1949 in his last parliamentary speech as the chairman of the drafting committee, Baba Saheb Dr Ambedkar said,"On the 26th Jan 1950 India *WILL be* an independent country."


If India had gained independence on the 15th of August 1947, Babasaheb Dr Ambedkar would NOT have made the above statement in 1949 referring to 26th Jan 1950

Further ahead, in the same speech, he AGAIN points to the future FOR THE SECOND TIME and says:

"On the 26th Jan 1950, India *would be* a democratic country... "

This means that before 1950 India WAS NOT a democracy. BEFORE 1950 INDIA WAS REFERRED TO AS HINDUSTAN.

26th January is the actual Indian independence day (four reasons):

1) The chief architect and author of the Indian constitution, Dr BR Ambedkar specifically said so in his last official parliamentary speech as the chairman of the drafting committee.

2) It was on 26th January 1950 that INDIA was officially CREATED and HINDUSTAN ABOLISHED.

3) If THE CURRENT constitution didn't come into fruition:

NO Non-Brahmin would have tasted complete freedom and NO SO CALLED UNTOUCHABLE WOULD HAVE TASTED *ANY* FREEDOM.

These being freedoms that the uninformed Indian takes for granted.

4) You most probably would never have heard of Dr B.R. Ambedkar & his legacy (unless some foreigner re discovered him in the future) had the constitution of India:

A) Not been written in the format it was drafted and

B) had it not been accepted at its (India's) inception.

*26th Jan is Indian Independence day (from the Manuvadi Brahmins). On 15 Aug 1947, the comparatively little freedom that the deprived castes and women had gained, thanks to the British, was now at the mercy of the Brahmins.

For 29 months, from the 15 Aug 1947 TO 26 Jan 1950, the Manuvadi Brahmins were the happiest people on earth. THEY became free from British rule. Power was TRANSFERRED from

the *BR* itish to

the *BR*ahmin.

So then, instead of the British, the Brahmins became the rulers (through TRANSFERRING of POWER).

Their happiness dwindled on 26th November 1949, when it was decided that the newly authored constitution by Dr Ambedkar would be officially implemented from the 26th January 1950. This day (26th November) is now acknowledged and celebrated as CONSTITUTION DAY making Dr Ambedkar the father of Indian freedom too, for he was the ONLY one who secured those freedoms for EVERY citizen.

FOUNDING FATHER OF MODERN INDIA : Title conferred upon Dr.B.R Ambedkar by Columbia University

As soon as the Manuvadi Brahmins realised that the Indian constitution will be based on principles favouring humanity, they were the FIRST ones to oppose it so that they could have a constitution based on the Manusmriti and other religious texts.

(BBC HINDI Video: Exposes the secrets in the Manusmriti, an archaic book of draconian anti-humanity laws)


Thats why I say: If it wasn't for the constitution, we probably would NEVER have heard about Baba Sahib Dr Ambedkar & his mission and most likely would have had to just wait until a foreigner re-discovered him. We would have gone back to the dark ages when the laws of Manu were the only laws

One worryimg cause of concern is:

There is an open secret that the extreme right wing Hindutva leaders, in collaboration with the largest known terrorist organisation in the world, the RSS are planning to replace the current Indian constitution with an alternative religious constitution. This is nothing less than a planned ‘latent- coup’ because it is being GRADUALLY achieved by making regular amendments to the constitution. Ambedkar had foreseen that this could be a real possibility and warned the new independent India of this in his last speech as the chairman of the drafting committee of the Indian constitution.

So to say that, Dr Ambedkar did not participate in the Indian freedom struggle” is not correct. In fact it's a lie.
