Author Champions Brahmins In New Work

BHOPAL, (IANS) – Indian Administrative Service officer Niyaz Ahmad Khan, who is posted as deputy secretary in the public works department of the Madhya Pradesh government, and often makes headlines on subjects beyond the ambit of his position, has once again grabbed eyeballs due to his new novel, ‘Brahmins the Great’.

His new work, talks about the higher IQ levels of Brahmins, the rich history of 3,000 years, and their contributions to society. The book also advocates Brahmins for higher posts as they have higher IQ levels.

Since the day the cover page of the English fiction was released showing a long ‘Shikha’ and donned in traditional dhoti, janeu, khadau and kamandal etc there has been much talk about this book, especially in Madhya Pradesh at a time when Assembly elections are just a few months away and caste-based politics hold centerstage.

Niyaz has also recommended a ‘moral policing’ system on the lines of Iran to protect India’s rich Sanatan dharma and culture. “Moral policing system needs hours to protect India’s Sanatan dharma, and right-wing organizations like Bajrang Dal and some more are doing the same job. Bollywood’s the biggest villain for destroying India’s rich culture and there must be control on it otherwise things would get worse day by day,” Niyaz writes.

Niyaz claimed that before writing this book, he went through several books written on Brahmins, rishi-munis (sages) and saints. He claimed to have read about Kashmiri Brahmins, the Husaini Brahmins, the Chitpavan, Dadhichi and several other Brahmins, and he found one thing in common: they were all accomplished thinkers. He also read more than 1,000 mantras of all the four Vedas and he found that Brahmins had raised concerns about climate change and the protection of nature.

He said that the life of philosopher and politician Kautilya, his foreign policy, philosophy of life, honesty, strategy etc. inspired him to write the book.

When asked about many things he had mentioned in the book, for instance, Brahmins’ identity is in danger in the present time and giving absolute power to this community can create a controversy in the society, Niyaz said, “All castes and communities are in a race to make their presence, and this is not new in the society. And this is true that Brahmins, who did years of tapasya to make India great, today they are not being given credit, instead they are being insulted. If anyone has a problem with it, then it is not IAS Niyaz Khan’s personal views, this is a writer’s view.”

This is not the first time Niyaz has spoken about Brahmins. Last year when Bollywood director Vivek Agnihotri’s movie, ‘The Kashmir Files’ was released he had said the ‘film shows the pain of Kashmiri Brahmins and they should be allowed to live safely in Kashmir with honor.”

However, another tweet in which he had requested Agnihotri to also make a movie to show the killings of many Muslims across several states, had prompted the Madhya Pradesh administration to issue a show cause notice.
