Appropriating Ambedkar

Appropriating Ambedkar Gopal Guru IT is not surprising to receive reactions to my report 'Hinduisation of Ambedkar in Maharashtra' [EPW, February 16] from S H Deshpande [EPW, April 27] and Dhammachari Lokmitra [EPW, May 18] representing two different religious forces. Both of them have tried to argue that Ambedkar still fits into their scheme of Hinduisation and spiritualisation respectively. But careful and unbiased reading of Ambedkar provides a lot of scope to counter-argue that it is difficult for either Deshpande or Lokmitra to appropriate Ambedkar Because the fragile logic of their rejoinder does not seem to support their motive of co-opting Ambedkar.
