Abstract

An attempt is made in this paper is to analyse the backward class movement in India, its effects on Indian society. Due to the negative implications of caste system backward class movement arises. It also includes Dravidian movement, SNDP Movement and Mahar Movement. In other nations, people are not divided like this. The caste system in India creates a bundle of social problems as a few castes are deliberate as greater to others. The social distinctions on the foundation of the caste system have been perpetuating because of the long tradition in giving significance to castes. There are violence and terrorism as people belonging to one caste attack people belonging to another caste. Backward Caste/class movements emerged among depressed castes and deprived sections of society in different parts of India with the broadening of the national move¬ment. The disparity among the religious and the caste movement is that while the former attacked evils of Hinduism, the latter exhorted its supporters to seek solutions to their problems within the outline of Hinduism, i.e., lacking reject their religion.
