    Jaipur: Sociologist and political psychologist Ashis Nandy on Saturday made a controversial statement at the Jaipur Literature Festival claiming that Dalits and other backward castes were responsible for the corruption in the Indian society today.

    "It is a fact that most of the corrupt come from the OBC and the Scheduled Caste sections, and now the Scheduled Tribes," he said. "The maximum amount of corruption these days is by Dalits, the backward and the oppressed classes," he added.

    Sources said that the Jaipur Police Commissioner has sought an explanation from the organisers of the festival.

    The remark has triggered a row, with political parties slamming the sociologist. Congress leader Rashid Alvi said, "I don't know why he has said it. But no one approves such statements." BJP leader Najma Heptullah said, "It is wrong on his part to do so. I don't want to comment about corruption being conducted by the SC, ST or the Dalits. It's very wrong to pass such a comment."

    Dalit writer Chandrabhan Prasad said, "Has there been a survey or a data or any evidence that proves OBC and SC/ST are more corrupt? If there is no such survey or evidence then such statements should not be passed. That means he is misusing his intellectual power, like others have misused their power."

    Nandy, however, said that he stood by his statement. "Let the police take action against me. I stand by what I have said," he said.

    Meanwhile, Festival organiser Sanjoy Roy sought to defend Nandy saying that his statement had been taken out of context. "I have heard that his saying has been taken out of context. He said where there is so much difference between rich and poor, there is corruption. It is his personal statement," he said.

    My unscientific observation is that Corruption in our country started when reservations have started.

    LOL!! HAHAHA now they are panning off the blame onto some poor fvcking "lower caste" folk after keeping the castist status quo for 50 odd years(License Raj) by maintaining Economic Stratification via socialism.

    Now that the playing field is more equal than before they can't stomach it....

    Moral of the Fartical "Shudras must always be Poor!"

    Pretty Much!! Just like ArunDOTTI "Suzanne" Roy, best of both worlds--really, persecuted minority AND Brahmin.....WOW!!

    Reservations did lead to a lot of unwanted and undeserving people into high posts in the govt. with no ethos and lowlife upbringing....However, they were not Just SC & STs!

    The Indian bureacracy is getting more responsive after its getting gradually freed from the kith and kin of Mr Nandys ilk.

    re: Most corrupt come from OBCs, SCs & STs: Ashis Nandy

    Why don't we go out on field study, map statistics & then pass judgement ?

    Everyone wants caste/religion attributed to their every damn activity anyways.

    Or how about we focus on reducing corruption instead of finding caste/religion of corrupt people ?

    Why don't we start jailing corrupt aam admi who sells his vote for whiskey bottle or 500Rs ?

    Yes, i see a reason why you called this a "unscientific observation". :rolleyes:
    What Ashis Nandy is probably true, most poor belong to SC/ST and OBC and as i see poor get exploited most by corrupts and are indirectly responsible for corruption :taunt:.

    re: Most corrupt come from OBCs, SCs & STs: Ashis Nandy

    I am pretty sure that if proportional representation of jobs is instituted, FCs will be the biggest to get affected.

    Economic control via socialism and license raj itself was a construct of the upper class left liberal shit heads. Ever wondered why socialist India never produced middle class from obc and SC??

    re: Most corrupt come from OBCs, SCs & STs: Ashis Nandy

    India is a socialist shit place. Govt interferes in everything. This is also the reason why reservation exists as well as corruption. Reservation is needed so long as the nation is socialist. If the collector is not from my caste, it is much less likely that I will get approval for the business I am to start. Hence I am forced to give bribery-direct cause being the need to get approval from govt. This is the reason for corruption.


    Now why reservation is important is also for the same reason. The forward castes dominate the bureaucracy too much. A SC is unlikely to get approval than a forward caste/same caste member from a upper caste bureaucrat. Hence reservation is needed what bureaucracy is not misused by some people lone for their community.


    But obviously, this leads to the same thing done by forward castes by the SC too. But that is the it can be-since both having power is Mich better than just omen person having power.



    And any one denying existence of caste favors in bureaucracy is a downright liar.


    My conclusion hence is that reservation is evil- yet a necessary evil. To remove reservation- remove the need for reservation- by limiting the bureaucracy. If the country becomes a true free market state, with absolute minimal govt- there won't be need for reservation anymore.
