Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Quote, Nagloka, Nagpur

Dr. Ambedkar declared - “Positively, my social philosophy may be said to be enshrined in three words: Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. Let no one, however, say that I have borrowed my philosophy from the French Revolution. I have not. My philosophy has roots in religion and not in political science. I have derived them from the teachings of my Master, the Buddha… He gave the highest place to fraternity as the only real safeguard against the denial of liberty or equality or fraternity which was another name for brotherhood or humanity, which was again another name for religion.” On October 14, 1956, the day of Vijayadashami, Ambedkar converted to Buddhism in Nagpur, along with hundreds of thousands of his followers, who took 22 oaths, including that one: “I thereby reject my old religion, Hinduism, which is detrimental to the prosperity of humankind and which discriminates between man and man and which treats me as inferior.”
Destroying ‪#‎Manusmriti‬ was first step taken by Dr. ‪#‎Ambedkar‬ but his ultimate step was accepting ‪#‎Buddhism‬! Do let me know your views on it in comment.
