Kathi Mahesh Playing A Dangerous Game

At the receiving end from all sections of society for his reprehensible remarks on the Ramayana and Lord Rama, Mahesh Kathi is now trying to project all and any criticism directed at him as criticism of the Dalit community.In short, he is trying to present himself as an icon of that community and hiding behind his caste as he is unable to answer the volley of comments directed at him.

In a video posted by Kathi online, he said he was peeved at the treatment of Dalits in Hinduism and said reforms in Hinduism were the need of the hour. Fine!But that does not give him the right to go on a public platform and speak about Lord Rama or Sitamma.

Realising that he had gone too far, Kathi is now trying to play the caste card and creating the impression that people who abuse him are abusing the Dalit community, which is not the case because many Dalit leaders have openly condemned Kathi Mahesh’s remarks.In resorting to these kinds of antics, Kathi is playing a dangerous game, a game which can easily spiral out of control unless wiser sense prevails in him.
