Conversion is Absolutely Necessary – Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar


Bodhisattva Ambedkar said to his people that conversion is needed to come out of the degraded and disgraceful life in Hinduism. Read below what Babasaheb Ambedkar had to say –

I should like to impress this thing on your minds very clearly that religion is for man and not man for religion. If you want to gain self-respect change your religion. If you want to organize yourself, change your religion.

If you want to create a society which ensures cooperation and brotherhood change your religion. If you want equality, change your religion. If you want independence, change your religion. If you want to make the world in which you live happily, change your religion.

I would like to ask you all what is the sense in living in a society which is devoid of humanity, which does not respect you, protect you, humiliates you, and never misses an opportunity to hurt you.

Any person with an iota of self-respect and decency will not like to remain in this satanic religion. Only those who live to be slaves can remain in this religion.

In view of the facts that the Hindu religion which forced your forefathers to lead a life of degradation and heaped all sorts of indignities on them, kept them poor and ignorant, why should you remain within the fold of such a diabolical creed?

If like your forefathers, you too, continue to accept a degraded and lowly position and humiliation, you will continue to be hated. Nobody will respect you and nobody will help you. It is for these reasons that the question of conversion has become important for us.

To change this degraded and disgraceful existence into golden life, conversion is absolutely necessary.

    The God is God ,b.coz He only has created the whoe universe &
    it’s belongings.There fore evey thing & every body must &must know Him & owe Him & seek for Him. There fore conversion needed but from the root,means from the heart of the person. The Bible says :the human beings are not our enimy but our bros & sis & our father is one. There fore we need to love one another & there should be equallity. Conversion is some one coming out of darkness the true light ofGOD. Thank you.
