10 powerful Babasahed quotes | AFP [via:]

“If I find the constitution being misused, I shall be the first to burn it.”

“Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise, both will wither and die.”

“I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.”

“Political tyranny is nothing compared to the social tyranny and a reformer who defies society is a more courageous man than a politician who defies Government.”

“They cannot make history who forget history”.

“The history of India is nothing but a history of a mortal conflict between Buddhism and Brahminism”.

“If you believe in living a respectable life, you believe in self-help which is the best help”.

“We must stand on our own feet and fight as best as we can for our rights. So carry on your agitation and organize your forces. Power and prestige will come to you through struggle”.

“So long as you do not achieve social liberty, whatever freedom is provided by the law is of no avail to you”.

“A people and their religion must be judged by social standards based on social ethics. No other standard would have any meaning if religion is held to be necessary good for the well-being of the people”. | AFP
