Utvalda religionsvetenskapliga teoriers förklaring till de oberörbaras uppror mot kastsystemet. : Vilken potentiell förklaring kan utvalda religionsvetenskapliga teorier ge till både kastsystemets existens och de oberörbaras uppror från 1850-talet och framåt?

Pehlivanovic, Verda, Kaikkonen, Lina January 2012 (has links)
Vi ville undersöka den hinduiska samhällsordningen, som benämns som kastsystemet, samt de oberörbaras uppror mot kastsystemet från 1850-talet och framåt. Vi ville analysera det befintliga materialet genom att pröva religionsvetenskapliga teorier som en potentiell förklaring till existensen av ett sådant fenomen som kastsystemet. Enligt indisk lag är diskriminering av kasttillhörighet förbjudet och praktiserandet av kastsystemet avskaffades officiellt 1950. Trots detta praktiseras denna hinduiska samhällsordning och än idag förekommer det en social, ekonomisk och politisk ojämställdhet, på grund av kastsystemet, i det indiska samhället. De som är sämst ställda i denna samhällsordning och som drabbas mest av den ojämställdhet som råder i det indiska samhället är de oberörbara. De drabbas än idag av våld och människorättsövergrepp. Med vår uppsats vill vi ge en potentiell förklaring av kastsystemets existens samt de oberörbaras uppror mot denna samhällsordning efter 1850-talet fram till 2000-talet. Detta vill vi göra genom att pröva tre utvalda religionsvetenskapliga teorier. De religionsvetenskapliga teorier vi valt är skapade från bland annat Meredith B. McGuire och Pierre Bourdieu. Vi har funnit att deras religionsvetenskapliga teorier kan ge en förklaring till både kastsystemets existens och de oberörbaras uppror mot kastsystemet genom historiens förlopp.

The Dalit Movement Within The Context Of The Indian Independence Movement

Ozden, Tugba 01 September 2005 (has links) (PDF)
This thesis analyses the Dalit Movement with regards to the twentieth century Indian nationalism and independence movement. Within this epoch, India was dealing with both internal and external problems, and this thesis confronts with the process of double freedom movement rolled into one, in India. On one side Indian nation was fighting against the British Imperialism and on the other hand the least level of the ancient Hindu social order varna, the Untouchables, were fighting against the higher castes for eradication of their historical backwardness. This solution of both problems pointed out changes in social and political terms. The mentioned movement under the leadership of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, who is recognized as the architect of the Indian constitution, aimed to obtain both political and social rights and freedom for the Untouchables. By this movement, Dalits initially managed to attain political rights and to outlaw discrimination among people. And then, in order to facilitate the integration of Dalits within the social sphere, they decided to convert from Br&amp / #257 / hmanism to Buddhism in year 1956 and ten thousands of Dalits converted following Dr. Ambedkar. In the present day, the ex-Untouchables are living under the umbrellas of Buddhism, Islam or Christianity in various parts of India. Even though the mentioned ex-Untouchables survive normally and non-problematically in urban, those of them living in the rural front against the violence of radical rightist, nationalist Hindus.

"The Indian Discovery of Buddhism": Buddhist Revival in India, c. 1890-1956

Surendran, Gitanjali January 2013 (has links)
This dissertation examines attempts at the revival of Buddhism in India from the late nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century. Typically, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar's conversion to Buddhism in 1956 is seen as the start of the neo-Buddhist movement in India. I see this important post-colonial moment as an endpoint in a larger trajectory of efforts at reviving Buddhism in India. The term "revival" itself arose as a result of a particular understanding of Indian history as having had a Buddhist phase in the distant past. Buddhism is also seen in the historiography as a British colonial discovery (or "recovery") for their Indian subjects viz. a range of archaeological and philological endeavors starting in the early decades of the nineteenth century. I argue that there was a quite prolific Indian discourse on Buddhism starting from the late nineteenth century that segued into secret histories of cosmopolitanism, modernity, nationalism and caste radicalism in India. In this context I examine a constellation of figures including the Sri Lankan Buddhist ideologue and activist Anagarika Dharmapala, Buddhist studies scholars like Beni Madhab Barua, the Hindi writer, socialist, and sometime Buddhist monk Rahula Sankrityayana, the first Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru and Ambedkar himself among others, to explicate how Buddhism was constructed and deployed in the service of these ideologies and pervaded both liberal and radical Indian thought formations. In the process, Buddhism came to be characterized as both a universal and national religion, as the first modern faith system long before the actual advent of the modern age, as a system of ethics that espoused liberal values, an ethos of gender and caste equality, and independent and rational thinking, as a veritable civil religion for a new nation, and as a liberation theology for Dalits in India and indeed for the entire nation. My dissertation is about the people, networks, ideas and things that made this possible. / History
