Ambedkar and Buddhism

Ambedkar and Buddhism Dhammachari Lokamitra THE second section of Gopal Guru's note on the 'Hinduisation of Ambedkar in Maharashtra' (EPW, February 16) deserves a reply. This section concentrates on attacking Trailokya Bauddha Maha- sangha Sahayaka Gana (TBMSG). Guru has based this on Vinay Ramble's articles on TBMSG in the Marathi magazine (now defunct) Dhammalipi. It seems he has not read any of the many publications brought out by TMBSG; otherwise one presumes he would have referred to them in his notes. The only conclusion one can reach is that he has not tried to establish the veracity of any of Kamble's points. This is in itself a very improper approach to criticism and leads one to doubt the real intentions behind writing such a report.
