Professor Kancha Ilaiah insulting Bhramins and Vysyas and poojya paripoornananda swami and also Hinduism.

Professor Kancha Ilaiah’s book ‘Samajika Smugglurlu Komatollu’ (Vysyas are social smugglers) has landed him in a controversy.

Arya Vysya associations allege that the title of the book and some of its contents are derogatory and demeaning to their community. They took to the streets on Sunday and burnt effigies of Kancha Ilaiah in Hyderabad and other places in AP and Telangana, and have demanded the immediate withdrawal of the book.

The book says that, historically, Arya Vysyas used to eat non-vegetarian food and were agriculturalists and used to rear cattle. They turned vegetarian later.
In the book, Prof Ilaiah explains why other communities dislike the Vysyas - a trading community - as it sees them as a community engaged only  in trading and business. He advises them to join the Indian Army to fight for the nation.
Jayanthi Venkateswarlu, Andhra Pradesh Arya Vysya Mahasabha president, said that the association is going to lodge a complaint with the police against Kancha Ilaiah.

“In the past, too, he has made comments on certain castes. Being a professor he should be more dignified and not make abusive comments against other casts.
