Sustainable Development Goals 2030 Developing Perspective: Understanding National Heritage Conversations- Baba Saheb Ambedkar

On 29 July 2018 at India Islamic Cultural
Centre, Timing- 10:00 AM to 4.00 PM

Those committed to fundamental transformation
are able to perceive principal contradictions of their time and provide a
vision for the future. Baba Sahib Ambedkar belonged to a tradition which has
been fighting one of the most challenging and obstinate institutionalized
system of exclusion, discrimination, exploitation and inherent divisiveness
among the marginalized majorities. Through the unique and near perfect
operation of caste system Dalits are made invisible and still exploited and
discriminated in an absolute sense. But it does not stop only at that
, it operates in a
manner that it continues to exclude large section of upper castes as well,
making the PYRAMID more and more narrow at the top and broad at the base.

With the combined impact of vote raj, struggle
for Samajik Azadi, political Azadi from British and India becoming a single
modern state based on a written constitution has created a class of people
among all the castes and communities who no longer perceive themselves as
victims but as comprehensive change leaders on all the national and
civilisational issues.

There is strong and pervasive urge among our
youth to understand various strands of great debates during our national
movement. All our great leaders were not in a polite conversation with each
other. They were brutally frank, honest, non-populist and generally authentic
while debating on real dilemmas of our traditions and its encounter with
modernity and imperial power. We plan to have a series of conversations on our
great national heritage. With this background in mind we are starting with Baba
Saheb Ambedkar.
