Casteism is deeply ingrained in the culture of Bharat and it has been very well carried forward in the societies of independent India as well. The most important battle that the youth of Independent India need to fight is against ‘Brahminism’, as the sub-caste responsible for all the caste based atrocities is the Brahmin.
This is the ultimate truth presented before the naïve and young growing minds in the universities of India so as to keep intact India’s best-kept secret, the atrocities against the Brahmins in India. The mass suicide of a Brahmin family in Bihar has shed light on the long-kept secret once again.
A Brahmin family committed mass-suicide in Bihar
A shocking incident has been reported from Samastipur district of Bihar. According to reports, five members of a Brahmin family committed mass-suicide on Sunday. Their bodies were found hanging in their home situated in Mau village under Vidyapatinagar police station area.
According to the Bihar Police, the deceased were identified as Manoj Jha(42), his wife Sundermani Devi (38), their two sons Satyam (10) and Shivam (7) and Manoj’s mother Sita Devi (65), who were found hanging from the ceiling.
“The matter about the death of all members of a family came to the knowledge of villagers on Sunday morning when some of the moneylender reached the deceased’s house to collect money. As no response came from the house, the visiting women informed the neighbours who, in turn, peeked into the house from broken parts of walls and windows to find all members hanging,” said a police officer visited the spot.

Debt forced a family for suicide
As per the information gathered by the Bihar Police, the Brahmin family was burdened under enormous debt. The family patriarch Manoj used to run a small tobacco shop for livelihood and had taken loans from several people. Due to his financial conditions, he was unable to return the loan and with time the amount has increased to over Rs 3 lakh. Manoj’s wife Sundermani too had taken a loan from a group of women.
While the police are prima facia considering the incident of mass suicide, Manoj’s daughter claimed that, it was not a matter of mass suicide but murder. She accepted that the family was in debt and this was the reason behind Manoj’s depression as the money lenders were constantly mounting pressure on him to pay back the amount. She alleged that the money lenders may have murdered Manoj and all members if his family, as the poor family was unable to pay back the loan.
“The family had a cumulative loan of over Rs 18 lakh. Their two four-wheelers and one autorickshaw were seized because they were unable to pay the monthly instalment to private banks,” said P K Singh, a resident of the village.
Another neighbour said that Jha was depressed as he could not avail the benefit of government welfare schemes. Reportedly, Manoj’s father Ravikant Jha had also committed suicide in November 2021 allegedly after being unable to repay a loan he had taken for his daughter’s marriage. It has also been reported that they lived in a ‘Kaccha makan’ as the family was not provided a ‘pakka makan’ under Awas Yojana, as they belonged to upper caste, and as per the scheme, there is a provision to give priority to persons belonging to SCs, STs and OBC categories.
Brahmins: A community of tyrants
The mass-suicide case of all members of a family of Bihar has once again shed light on the plight of the ‘upper castes’ of the Hindu community; the Brahmins. The Brahmins that are approximately 4.3 per cent of the total Indian population is often accused of being tyrants.
The same Brahmin community has survived one of the most brutal years of atrocities and is today deprived of all the benefits and advantages. It can be said that the most hated community on this planet is the peace-loving community of Brahmins, who have for centuries imparted knowledge.
Brahmins can be seen as a symbol of a civilisational Bharat. The first attack was launched by the missionaries, as the Brahmins were the people who were ready to lose everything intact to keep their Dharm intact. The force was later joined by the liberals and the leftists, for whom the Brahmins were the ultimate enemies and their prime agenda was to wipe them out. The villainisation of the Brahmin community continues till date. Even today, the campuses like JNU and Jadavpur university are echoed with sloganeering “Brahmin, Bharat Chodo”, “Brahmanvadnahichalega”, “Brahmano ki kabarkhudegi..”

The same tyrant Brahmin community has been the victim of atrocities since decades. The bigger dilemma is that the community has survived the most atrocities. From the mass murders of Chitpavan Brahmins that took place in the aftermath of the killing of MK Gandhi to institutional/societal persecution of Brahmins in Tamil Nadu after 1967 after DMK came to power, the list is non ending.
Brahmins; the education imparting community, have always been at the receiving end and are today suffering due to factors like poverty and illiteracy. The Modi government has attempted a step forward in the direction of welfare of the Brahmins, the Savarnas by implementing the EWS reservation system. But the positive implications will take some years to show result. Till then, the Brahmin community may remain to the most vulnerable community on this planet, most vulnerable to atrocities, not just physical but psychological as well.
