Ravindra Jadeja's sword celebration video
Ravindra Jadeja | Twitter screen grab | @imjadeja
Text Size:

Imagine if the Pakistani cricket team beats India and its players wave their bats as if they were the swords of Ghazni or Babar. Or if the English players flaunt themselves as Dalhousie’s Boys. Or if the players of Sri Lankan team enter the ground after a victory as Ravana’s ten heads. How are Indians going to react? With something like ‘my sentiments have been hurt’? We will outrage to no end.

And perhaps rightly so.

Such acts are offensive. They hurt public sentiments. And Ravindra Jadeja should know that. The Indian cricketer, famous for his fielding on the cricket ground but also popular for the bat swirl after scoring a half-century or a century, leaves little room for doubt about his identity — not of an Indian, not of a cricketer, not even of a sensible adult, but his big, all-encompassing identity: caste.

Caste matters

If you have seen Ravindra Jadeja off the cricketing field, came across his videos on social media or read his interviews, then you know he is a Rajput. But just in case you don’t, Jadeja has you covered. He recently uploaded on Twitter a 17-second clip of himself swinging a sword as a Bahubali song plays in the background. The cricketer desperately tried to match the caption of the tweet with his angry facial expressions: “A “SWORD” MAY LOOSE IT’S SHINE,BUT WOULD NEVER DISOBEY IT’S MASTER #rajputboy”.

Ravindra Jadeja’s hashtag ‘Rajput boy’ is offensive and hurts the sentiments of every Indian who is working to improve the lives of those discriminated against on the basis of caste and end this culture.

Jadeja’s act also demeans the culture of sports, of which he is an ambassador and therefore knows that players are honoured for their skill and not for their caste. Should Sachin Tendulkar, a brahmin, now wield his bat to show the wrath of Parashurama, an avatar of Hindu god Vishnu, who is believed to have wiped out Kshatriyas 21 times from the earth? In a casteist society like ours, these things can take ugly turns, triggering a competitive show of caste valour, which is why public figures are not known to engage with their followers in such ways on common platforms.

Whose bravery?

Ravindra Jadeja forgets that the Rajputana bravery that he seems so obsessed with were individual acts of soldiers and kings. It is not because of his caste that the valour of Maharana Pratap is celebrated. Nor it is because of caste that the legends of Lorik, Lachit Borfukan, Tanhaji are sung to this date. The monkey god Hanuman was not considered brave because he was a monkey. Similarly, India’s freedom fighters such as M.K. Gandhi, Subhas Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Jawaharlal Nehru, B.R. Ambedkar did not succeed because of their castes. It was their individual acts that mattered.

Sword wielding can be a form of sport, such as fencing, and people belonging to any caste can learn the skill. But Jadeja is not wielding a sword to promote fencing. His sword is an invocation of the valour of Rajputana kings, and Jadeja is merely lumping himself among them like those good-for-nothing people who project someone else’s achievement as their own by simply pointing out their caste association. What is Ravindra Jadeja’s contribution to the Rajputana valour other than swinging a sword like he does his cricket bat or riding a horse?

Habitual offender

By identifying himself as a ‘Rajput boy’, Jadeja is insulting the cricketing fraternity, which is still struggling to address racism. And Jadeja’s open, regular display of caste pride doesn’t help the cause because it is not much different to race pride. Earlier, he has worn shoes to a match with ‘Rajput’ inscribed on them.

Cricketers K.L. Rahul and Hardik Pandya were reprimanded and made to face disciplinary action for their ‘loose talk’ about women at a talk show — Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan. There is no reason why Ravindra Jadeja’s casteist acts should be allowed to flourish. He is not a local goon who roams around the streets with ‘Jat Boy’ or ‘Rajput Boy’ or ‘Yadav ke Chhore’ written on his vehicle.

In The Kapil Sharma Show, cricketer Virat Kohli has spoken about Jadeja’s eccentricities such as believing the world would collapse one day when the two buildings moving closer to each other in his home town Jamnagar finally touch each other. Kohli, who was describing the oddities of someone he believes ‘boasts’ the most in the Indian cricket team, also revealed that Jadeja thinks a horse on a king’s portrait changes its stance every year.

There’s something to be said about a popular Indian figure flaunting his caste identity in a society that has forever struggled to even properly acknowledge everyday caste-based atrocities, including killings, let alone do much to end a system that actively promotes a hierarchical structure. That Jadeja’s clip was being lapped up by more than a lakh people on the eve of Ambedkar Jayanti shows how far we stand from realising B.R. Ambedkar’s dream of a casteless society.

  1. Very happy to see all my Rajput brothers United as ‘ONE’ here. Me being proud Rajput itself.
    🙏🏻🚩

    This article is totally defamation towards a person regardless of his Public status.
    No wonder, I can clearly see her Poor English and Diction in the article and she just vented out her frustration towards a person who has achieved Heights in Cricket. I encourage more Youth to bring name and fame to our Bharat and perform exceptionally well ahead.
    We shall Never Tolerate Disrespect and injustice.

    Jai Rajputana Jai bharat|

  2. Ab aap to rehne dijiye….. likhne se pehle kuch padh lete to acha hota…. acha aap ke purvaj shayad garv se lade nahi hoge yudh me isliye aap ko rajput se dikkat he… kabhi itihas me zak ke dekhi ye……
    JAY RAJPUTANA

  3. #RAJPUTBOY What is there yo be ashamed of if I’m proud of my lineage and ancestors, I’m not saying I’m above or below any individual, just stating that I’m proud of what i am and who my ancestors were.

  4. india is going to shit. what the fuck is this. As a “lower caste”member i find absolutely NOTHING offensive with him being proud of his descendence

  5. This lady who wrote this article must be jailed. She is just trying to defame jadega along with our rich culture and pride. She is trying to divide us on the basis of cast, also she wants to create the differences between people on the baisi of cast . Madam don’t misslead people the whole world knows how much Kshatriyas have given to this nation, and as a citizen of a democratic country jadeja has full right to cherish and celebrate his culture and identity. We all have freedom of speech. People like you are responsible for discrimination and inequality. How easily you insulted whole Rajput community as if we had zero contribution to the society. Even lord Shri Ram ji said one who is not proud of its cast and ancestors is not a real human. Be proud of our ansectors be proud of our history it’s everything and the base of our learning.

  6. We are proud of our castes, we are proud of our religion. you don’t have the fucking right to tell us what word we use or not The Print. stop being so-called secular and by the way who tells you that ambedker wanted casteless society, if that then remove the reservation.

  7. Karwa li na beizzati.

    If you are talking about casteless society and equality then let’s start with removing caste-based reservation. Shall we?

  8. Ghazni? Lost 16 times against Rajputs and got lucky the 17th time?

    Babur? Lost Battle of Buyana against Rana Sanga. Won Battle of Buyana because Raja Silhadi with his 35000 men switched sides in the midst of the battle. Again, the cause of Rajput defeat was another Rajput. Sanga ko harana hai to Silhadi lagta hai. Pratap ko harana hai to Man Singh lagta hai. Ye kisi musalmaan k bas ki baat nahi.

    And anyway, Maharana Pratap, after 8 years of losing Battle of Haldighati, bounced back raising an army of 40000 soilders WHILE LIVING IN THE JUNGLES (a feat nobody has achieved ever), and destroyed the mughals and won the Battle of Dewair.

    Britishers? Ask them who Pandit Ramprasad ‘Bismil’ (Ramprasad Singh Tomar/Tanwar), Thakur Roshan Singh, Bandhu Singh Srinet, Babu Kunwar Singh, Babu Amar Singh, Raja Rao Rambaksh Singh, Fateh Narayan Singh, Raja Drig Narayan Singh were.

    And Parshuram? Pffft. Parshuram se puchna unke sishya Bhishma Pitamah kaise hai.

    What half cooked knowledge you posses. A true Ahir you are.

    Now, let me tell you about your identity. Your people have appropriated themselves as Yadavs. Otherwise Yadavs are originally Rajputs (Yaduvanshis). They are Yaduvanshis who claim decent from King Yadu. Lord Krishna was born to a Yaduvanshi Rajput (a.k.a Yadav). Some Yaduvanshi Rajputs surnames are Jadon, Bhati, Chudasma, Jadeja, etc.. Ravindra Jadeja is a Yaduvanshi Rajput (original Yadav).

    You are not Yadav. You are Ahir. Ahirs are cattle class people. You have appropriated yourselves as Yadavs. All thanks to Arya Samaaj. Otherwise I challenge you to pick up documents of your ancestors from before year 1900 and tell me if their surname was written ‘Yadav’ or not. Only then we will talk.

    • Get your facts straight , Ghazni didn’t lose even once! And there were no rajputs before 7th century. Also go and check the chief of defence forces and people in defence forces , they come from all castes and communities.

  9. #RajputBoy What is wrong with the writer and the people. Any man who is proud of his caste can do everything he want. No one has the right to judge him. Ravindra Jadeja belongs to a caste where his ancestors were ready to give up their heads for motherland. They were ready to fight any army no matter it’s size just for their people. I am proud to be a Rajput and I will show it, praise it anywhere and anyplace.

  11. You see the world as you are!! Video did not have anyyyy relation to Casteism!! But, you had to relate it!! Now that’s sick mentality and a sick post!!

  12. Worst post ever
    If u want to abolish caste system 1 St abolish caste based reservation fool.
    U want every thing for free …I am totally against this post of urs
    we general category are not given anything by govt…..u take everything for free….if u continue to do so…u will surely always continue to face discrimination.

  13. You guys are so full of shit.
    Ever heard about freedom of speech and freedom of expression??
    Now,
    Get your filthy swine face back to the Porkistani gutter it came from.

    • Worst post ever

    • Kis kis ko Chup karwaoge. Maximum comment in support of Jadega. The author, of course, does not like her job or else how can someone produce such full of shit article.

  14. Worst article by print how can they allow this article to be published,If Jadeja is proud of his ancestory ,Why this is mattern on concern of anybody ,Did hi say anything derogatory to anybody,On the contrary this article is raciest and against the eros of our nation ,Pathetic!

    • please jyoti yadav ko gaali mat do, wo to apni naukri kar rahi hai, usne bola bhi hoga ye kya bakchodi hai bas aur kya

  15. what u think about a person who wears blue dress.what it means when a person chants jai bhim jai mim.u are just a asshole who only sees fault in any ones act.u have no right to cricise jadeja…..its his choice to keep horse show swords.it is his personal belief .

  16. Did this worthless piece with messed up brains just try to tell Jadeja what being an Indian is?
    This behavior is typical of a social parasitic leech who becomes all plump by feeding off the reflected glory of a self made man. That man is not only an achiever but also a citizen with a right to celebrate his individuality in his chosen unique way.
    Whatever the past might have been of his ancestors, it is only deplorable to even associate that with the swinging of sword…afterall this act is pure celebratory.
    In an attempt of becoming a toast of Lutyens, this author has instead ended up becoming the roast of the nation.

  17. I couldnt help but realise how much poison u have in ur mind that snakes might have to borrow from u. Just because India is democratic and u have freedom of speech, it doesnt imply u will spout nonsense on any topic.
    If u have such stupid opinions, then sunn meri baat, its my choice to write such response to u exercising my freedom of speech.

    P.S: I would be eagerly waiting for a similar article on Islam from u. That shows how selective ur journalism is.

  18. Then where the hell were you when muslims say la illahu illallah..why are you people (anti Indians) always try to tarnish the image of people who take pride in their culture?? Where were you when pakistani players offer namaz after winning a match on the ground itself and when indian muslims say inshallah in each sentence they use…..where were you when your so called secular people spred virus?? And why do muslims chop of their moustache and keep only beard??? Why do they want to reveal their identity??did you say anything about it?? You say jadeja isn’t a good player…The test no. 2 all rounder and in top ten of Icc test rankings… Still have a doubt??? Then according to your logic no dalit should take pride in what Ambedkar has done to the society and no muslims shud be proud of their prophet and yes!! You should also not take pride in what your father or mother has done to you.. Such baseless argument!!

  19. This opinion is utterly judgemental, misinterpreted and has hidden agenda. The writer, the editor and the whole print should be ashamed of. Stopping low is your habit. And nobody can change that. Presstitute, indeed you are

  20. This opinion is utterly judgemental, misinterpreted and has hidden agenda. The writer, the editor and the whole print should be ashamed of. Stopping low is your habit. And nobody can change that.

  21. So the comments against his bat swirling are not casteist. Shitty article. This discrimination thing has gone too far. The author needs to introspect.

    • 😂😂. Beta ji Apki 7 pushto ko ek baari Mein kharid le…. Ravindra Singh Jadeja naam h unka ……. लोगों को नमक स्वाद अनुसार और बोलना औकात अनुसार चाहिए….. 😂😂

  22. ये स्टोरी राईटर जेसे लोग ही देश में जातीयवाद फेलाते हे और सेक्युलरिज्म का पर्दा ओढ़ते है। अगर कोई कहता है कि में राजपूत हूं तो वह गलत कैसे हो गया ? कोई अपनी कास्ट पर खुश हो वह बुरा केसे हो गया? ना तो उसने किसी कि जाती , धर्म को बुरा कहा ना तो गली दी #rajputboy लिख दिया तो वह जाती भेद करने वाला हो गया?
    फिर तो आप कहोगे जय भीम , जय श्री राम ,कहना भी जाती वाद है । और जो स्कूल की फॉर्म में राजपूत / हिन्दू / ब्राह्मण / बौद्ध / मुस्लिम लिखते है वह भी जाती वाद करते है। आप की इस लेख से तो यह प्रतीत होता है कि आप क्षत्रिय समाज और बौद्ध समाज में तेढ़ निर्माण करना चाहते है।

  23. And for the record, he is a top top cricketer!! And for the author, stop looking everything in caste n religious angle. If you weren’t hypocrite, your name would have been just Jyoti.
    P.S. I haven’t read the article, headline was enough to judge what kind of negative article this would be.

    • The level of negativity which we are facing since modi second tenure is crossing its level. People are really bringing such lame issues which are like never existed. I hope you live in Kerala. But, here is Delhi, UP people are made to look with such a way. How will people move ahead.? we want to move ahead of caste sim but such article bring so much negativity which creates hate it is continued till it gets toxic. situation are really worse. people have lost common sense.

  24. Seeing so many comments, hopefully by now you must have understood is not easy anymore to fool people in the name of caste. The country has awakened and for good. Days are over for your master’s cast and relegion based politics.As for the Rajput Boy comment, it’s his personal freedom what he calls himself. And why not his ancestors have left him this legacy to be proud upon. Rajput is not just a caste, it’s the attitude. People like you who would write anything just for fulfilling their akaa’s propaganda wouldn’t understand it. STOP writing this kind of crap.

  25. When a muslim says he is proud muslim does that mean he is doing that cos of gajni and gauri, comparing him with invedors like dalhauji, gajni and ravan shows your seculer journalism.
    He is not being proud of attacking or invading other countries he is proud of defending islamisation of india.
    And by the way you should know gajni and gauri were afgans not Pakistani
    What a intellectual journalist you are 😃

  26. Wow… Then the author would be glad that a fellow OBC has become the PM of India with thumping majority twice. The Nehruvian janeudhaari elites demolished by OBC poor man from Gujarat. I know… I KNOW… poor comrade filled with hate cant acknowledge this ‘social victory’.

  27. I am Rajput….we feel proud….jish ko saram aati ho apni caste par.. caste certificate bhi na lena or dikhana

  28. RajputBoy is offensive? Wow, that’s the stupidest argument I’ve heard in a long time. By that logic, any association with one’s traditions or history must be offensive to you? Why don’t you drop your surname then Ms. Yadav? You are flaunting your caste and we need a casteless society right? You are hurting public sentiments…Madam, grow a brain for God’s sake, we need a discrimination-less society, not so much a casteless one.

  29. So I wonder would it all appear so offensive to ther writer if Jadeja was not a Rajput???
    I ser nothing hugely wrong with flaunting and be proud of one’s heritage… I am sure there are more offensive things you worry about!!

  30. This is too much. Pretty sure he wouldn’t have given this side of the picture even a accidental shot. Good, that “the views are personal” was mentioned before hand. This is just too woke. At this time of distress, we must search for the intended and positives and not dig nonsensically deep and fuel our opinions.

  31. Why should he criticise Sachin drinking and Rohit’s eating meat? This article about Ravindra is not about if he is following the caste rules or not, it is about flaunting the caste. I think you are missing the point here. And, Hindustan is not a caste. (facepalm..rip logic)

  32. The word “Caste” was introduced to India by the British. Rajput is one of the many Indian tribes. And every tribe on the planet must be proud of themselves. Nothing wrong in self pride.
    Can you chose to flex your neuronal cells (think beyond archaich British Raj perspective about India? )

  33. First become successful like him and than write such articles. YOU as a person don’t have your own identity and trying to defame others.

  34. To see something in terms of caste when the entire world was seeing it as a sport justifies your stupidity in this article.
    Also shows you have no work at this time.

  35. PRINT IS PATHETIC.

    So according to print Ravindra Jadej is pomoting castesism. I may point out to the people we have already reached the time in India where people are openly attacked for based on their religion and doing almost anything which has nothing to do with others.

    But According to THE PRINT these below mentioned people are noble citizens of SECULAR India…

    “Certain People” openly hate India and speak they do not follow the constitution but their BOOK.
    “Certain People” promote burqa, IT EMPOWERS WOMEN.
    “Certain People” hope to kill people of all other religion. Hope them to be infected with the virus and they are being merciful and uplifting our society as per THE PRINT.
    These “Certain People” spit on the doctors, throw stones on the Plolice but as per PRINT they are promoting their Religion, as they are not promoting RACISM and CASTEISM or HATRED, it’s pure LOVE .
    The “Certain People” are labeled “Single Source” etc etc WHY?

  36. He is proud of his ancestors who did the most to protect the country from total annihilation by the islamic barbarians. Only a sick mind like yours will see a caste in it. As for his accomplishments, he plays for India at the highest level, which takes real talent. What about you, a half wit who parrots lefty drivel and sucks up to your lefty friends to get a gig at The Print to write juvenile tripe? You, madam, are nothing.

  37. Hi, I m not purposely writing my full name is coz mera bhi cast nikal dega writer. N yes lots of businessman has invested in your company to write actual news NOT TO MAKE NEWS. Please grow up and report on more important things. Its his personal choice to swirl bat and he has been doing for maybe past 2 to 3 years no one has taken offence coz he swirl bat in indian dressing room. You may have written celebration of a Imran Tahir. That is both abusive n insulting but coz he is Muslim Print won’t write.

    And yes views are my personal.

  38. We can feel ur pain liberandu.. But you know what!!! It’s those Rajputs who fought bravely to ur so called mughals and turned their nights into nightmares. Just stop this nonsense.. Jai Hind.. Jai ShreeRam

  39. If you don’t know than plz don’t write article about any cast Brahmin or Rajput these two are best frds from old times and jaddu only write Rajput boy he didn’t discuss or write about cast he is Rajput boy I support to jadeja ..
    Bapu

  40. what an asinine article.Every one should be free to celebrate whatever their identity
    is.Celebrating your identity does not mean you are diminishing others identity.I have
    many Sikh friends ho proudly proclaim their Sardar identity at any opportunity and
    no one ever feels offended.Every year the Irish on St.Patricks Day wherever they are
    go over the top celebrating their Irishness and everyone parties along.
    This sort of article is from the school of hyper ventilating ,offence taking,virtue signalling,
    attention seeking school of journalism,which could better be classified as TDQRTGU (Teenage Drama Queens Refusing to Grow Up)

  41. What a shit article man. Just because people are bored during the qurantine means they’ll write anything? The angle you’re trying to spin is stupid and dumb. Please try and be productive instead of being stupid and communal.

  42. Casteism will never end. Hope people belonging to other caste boycott this “Malnutrition” Rajput boy.
    This casteist is wearing ” blue” short, amazing.

    • Hello. He is not being casteist just displaying pride in his cultural heritage…caste is only a small part of this…we all share our blood (gentic) and Indic heritage, all Indians! Your ancestors deserted this cultural heritage and adopted an alien faith… which plays lip service to equality and peace…but is actually monomaniacal and supremacist, claiming an onus on the only God and only way… Try learn more about Indic civilization instead of smearing your blood brothers and sisters

    • Talks the person who just on the basis of color of shorts judge people. The casteism is alive because in your small mind you are the prisoners of past. He never said anything derogatory to any caste.

  43. Everyone is talking about the caste in someway or the other. What happened if jadeja did the same. This culture will stop only if caste is eliminated from every where and we just see people of India otherwise it will keep on going .

  44. I can only request Jyoti to pay heed to my advice to her – of referring every article she writes to Shekhar and publish it only when he says so without any hesitation and not under the duress of being a nice democratic guy. Why she is suddenly picking on Jedeja out of nowhere is not clear and why is she reaching such outlandish conclusions? Is it because she can’t now pick on Modi as everyone all over the world is all praise for him and appreciative of his handling of the cornona pandemic ? Even that HCQ export to USA after a dire warning by Trump turned out to be a damp squib in a matter of a day! Jyoti should quarantine herself from writing any article for a few weeks. Once economy restarts, she will have many stories to write against Modi, Sitharaman etc. Keep your powder dry for that time post 3rd May!

  45. Hey Jyoti YADAV ,

    Your last name offends me please stop being YADAV ka chorre yourself first then show the rest of the world your hypocritical view on how people should celebrate their half century or century while playing for India . I think you have difficulty in concentrating what they are doing , maybe we need to put you in a concentration camp or something so that you can focus better

  46. Why does Jadeja wielding a Sword and taking pride on his Rajput Background trouble you so much that you have to write a full article on him filled with apparent personal grievances, personal attacks, non sensical accusations and outrageous comparisons. And please elaborate how him calling himself a Rajput can be offensive to anyone but frustrated Leftists and communists with little or no achievement.

  47. The topic was a serious one. But when the author itself have the surname “YADAV” carrying with him keeps everyone reminded that he belongs to YADAV. As long as these kinda representions of caste there, the sense of caste of the other person won’t be wiped out. It remains in the air.

    The author should have changed his surname before he made this lecture.

  48. Ok you right. You are either wasting time or maybe gaining some popularity .I belongs to tribal community.there are major problems which are happing in India on the bases of casteism. You should cover that things. Instead of covering the tweets of some famous people to gain popularity. You should cover many major issues like why lower cast people are denied of their basic needs. Why their is no facilities for our people like education, clean drinking water, electricity, roads , food, etc . Why we are prohibited from some major temples and institutions and many more.

  49. He is proud of what he is. He did not speak against any other castes or showed anyone in poor light. This article and some tweets has blown this out of proportion. If you go by this logic , even putting your name would be a subject of criticism depending on your name that may indicate your religion or caste. So please stop this. This is going to further divide the community. After all even he has rights to express himself and in this case he did not hurt anyone’s sentiments.

  50. So do we want an equitable society without any identity of a society?
    Theoretically sounds utopian, no religious identity of any kind, no caste, everyone’s following law of the land and we all are driven by only human values which are universal…
    but come to think of it… Its also scrapping away all social customs that are inherent to a society.. To me the whole point of equitable society is that no crimes are done against anyone and everyone has equal rights and is respected by all. But individual identities is what makes thing exciting, the custom and rituals of the past generation is preserved by the people who still follow them … there are some bad and some good customs around us ( tand hats debatable ) but that’s how it is…

    but why is there so much hue and cry until he is not using his societal identity to bully or spread hate crime . Its just Self boosting and it envokes pride, confidence and courage. Try doing that may be you’ll feel it too…

  51. I wonder if these opnion writers can ever be impartial or objective. Even if they are not, I would still consider it a valuable read sometimes. But when the contempt of the author for her subject comes through, it just feels like a hit piece then there is no place for any valuable dialogue

  52. I am not a Hindu, I am a Buddhist so it doesn’t make any odds to me whether Jadega is a casteist or not. But, a lot of you reading this article may not know about the author, Jyoti Yadav, who is a serial liar, and it seems to be a biased journalist. I have read another article which she had written which was purely fictional and concocted. I read ThePrint because of Neelam Pandey and a few other journalists whom I do prefer reading their articles. To be candid, watching Dhinchak Puja’s song is far better than reading Jyoti Yadav’s article. No Offence. If a journalist can give their own view, then I as a reader, I too put forth my own view.

  53. He is rajput and me too… And
    No one have right to ask us what we r doing.. 🤨
    If u really think about equality then why others have reservation and we don’t??
    Either it should be no reservation orr we should have these rights…

  54. Don’t mind the sword whirling as long as he can out his money where his mouth is. So far he has failed to finish even a single run chase. The so called Rajput boy can’t even whirl his bat and take his team home when the team needs him to bat selflessly at an strikerate of 150+. Comes at 7 in ODIs and t20s scores just above run a ball for his country and calls himself a rajput after taking a catch and bowling safe for 10 overs trying not to get hit over the fence. Such is his bravery that in his entire carrier of 10 long years he hasn’t been able to finish 10 matches with bat and has even miserable record in tests matches abroad. All hail to pseudorajputs……

    • Then why the hell do you hail Allah and say la illahu illallah when you didn’t even contribute 0.0001%to Islam…why are you people (anti Indians) always try to tarnish the image of people who take pride in their culture?? When pakistani players offer namaz after winning a match on the ground itself and say inshallah boys played well… And why do you chop of your moustache and keep only beard??? Why do you want to reveal your identity?? You say jadeja isn’t a good player…The test no. 2 all rounder and in top ten of Icc test rankings… Still have a doubt???

  55. There is nothing wrong with Jadeja doing sword fight with his bat. It is nothing different from any celebration that other cricketers do. It is a skill that is native to Indian culture and he is displaying his skills.
    But identifying himself by a caste is wrong. We cannot attribute a skill to caste. Infact your article is wrong in associating sword fight with caste as if other than Rajputs none know to swing a sword.

  56. He can express his own feelings , how dare you challenge anyone’s feelings in this country ? This is what the view of Ambedkar saheb. You people want to create unnecessary controversy. very cheap writer.No level at all. American presidents go regularly for outing. So what is your opinion, can’t he go. Change your attitude and develop your mind first

  57. This is the problem of our nation we are too proud of our culture and so called exalted heritage and heroes but more than that the burning issue that should haunt us should be development and poverty alleviation you go to Kerala no one boasts about culture and invokes the names of past Kings and heroes there is just a working culture and a mission to ensure good health and poverty alleviation even in this covid season

  58. Jb mahabharata ke baad shree krishna ke sbhi vansaj aur shree krishna ki durbhagyapurna dehant ho gya tha, toh ahir shree krishna ke vansaj kaise hue?

  59. We should focus on hashtag and things written on shoes as writer mentioned. Wring Jadeja is not offensive on shoes or hashtag but community name can be. Does Jadeja thinks he is above other cricketers heroics like viv Richard’s or Lara. Or even joginder Sharma. He is not even 2 meter close to Status of dhoni or javagal srinath . A common boy got good financial status and now making influence in his local community and may be eying on political future. But as long as he is representing Indian team he should not try to individualize. As there is too much competition for even him to be in playing eleven. He is not a match winner and how we can expect him to win wars for india in battlefield with his primitive armaments and horses. He may betray us in war to be on winning side. Moreover he is a village guy,he even married a girl from his relatives and not from anywhere else from india to make india United regardless of regions or dialects or cuisines. He is very narrow minded in today’s India. Or he is not able to mix with other people that is upbringing.

  60. Sad part is this entire article was written on a simple hashtag. And god knows how many comments followed after that. If you’re up against castes then the first thing we need to do is stop seeing it in every little detail. If he’s a Rajput, he’s proud of his heritage more than his caste. And so does everybody else should be. Regardless where you come from.

  61. Why the hell on this earth, you started believing Rabindra Jadeja’s actions out-preach his belongingness towards his Caste. Different players have different ways of celebrating their victories and off-couse you cannot draw a conclusion out of it. In dressing room players do share many funny jokes so is Jadega. What’s wrong in it? Sound strange to me that he never admire his caste or religion but you performed the end to end analysis and repeated word ‘Caste’ multiple times in your post. Be mature my friend.

Be mature my friend. If you start drawing conclusions this way what have you say about West Indies players, Australian players, South African players specially Andre Nel and off-couse Sree Shant. Human beings are not Robot that they are going to act the same way in similar situations. Hope it make sense.

  64. Dont drag a fun loving cricketer into thos nonsense. Promoting his caste is none of Jaddu’s concern. Sword fencing is his hobby..let him do what he loves to do. Wrong things are within your head, so you think that way.

  65. What an ugly article. Looks like the writer has no sense or he doesn’t have anything to write so he decides to write a controversial article. Actually trying to create a controversy out of nowhere just to get some publicity. Why not u write an article on Sheldon Cottrell of WI for his salute celebration? By d way Rajpoot is not casteism, they are known as warriors, anyone who fights war is a warrior, is a Rajpoot. By swirling swords Jadeja just lets everyone know that he is a warrior. Jadeja making his country proud and u just want to defame him by writing filthy things. Who are you my dear? What have u done for the country? Your Talibani thoughts are false. Well, We all know that The print is from left media and they never feel good about Rights. By writing these things you want to hurt sentiments of Rights that’s for sure and you want to defame Hinduism.

  66. Are you mad? If a person has any talent then he can definitely show it . Every player has his style . Virat Kohli shows his aggressive nature on field after a great knock, similarly sir Jadeja shows his skill and his hobby too, on or off the field . But people like you, who cannot digest it, are discriminating and finding casteism out of this art . Just stop your nuisance.

  67. Actually these self proclaimed secular live on another planet ,they think that they are the only people who are full of knowledge. They criticise every one but they themselves do all these non sense things. They drink alcohol talk about liquor ban, they eat leg piece chicken but join PETA and compaign to protect animals, they live in metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai in a air conditioning building and talk about plight of tribals of Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. Actually now people know who they are.

  68. If Jadeja is wrong for expressing his Caste association then it is also wrong in case of all Dalits of our country who is taking pride in Dr. Ambedkar’s individual achievement by relating their Caste association with Him.

  69. I he respects all then what’s your problem you guys don’t write on people like owaisi who say we ruled for 800 years police hatao what problem do u have , and if rajputs fought for the country why shouldn’t they show their pride and even those who didn’t do much still rule parties like that of one which ruled India for 70 years

  70. It’s a shame that you call yourself a journalist. It’s because of people like you India is still divided into castes because you make it a subject and spread hoax.

  71. Nothing wrong. The man has a skill in yielding a sword and he is showing off. You the author have skills in writing and you are showing off. Same thing. dont use the caste card its boring.

  72. There is nothing offensive, what so ever, in being proud of ones clan, tribe, community, region and nation, as long as you dont denigrate others. Rajputs have had a history of chivalry and bravery, which shall find no parallels.

  73. If he will stop waving his bat as sword then there will not be appearance of caste on school tc and every people of society would be getting reservation on the basis of economical backward classes as a sake of humanity ?

  74. Print, how low will you sink is the question – How low is too low? Would you write something about people saying proud muslims?! No! Just another stupid news channel.

  75. There is not problem when someone shows pride of his/her community. Even there are many processions on road on Ambedkar Jayanti, coz Ambedkar is pride for them! So there is nothing harm in it. If someone’s display of pride hurts you it means you feel yourself to be inferior. When you kill the feeling of inferiority within yourself, nobody’s display of community pride can offend you. I am not trying to defend Ravindra here, neither I belong to Kshatriya or Brahmin clan, but it’s just a suggestion. Coz no matter where you go around the world, there will be people with some kind “holier than thou” attitude. So chill. Swirling of sword doesn’t makes anyone inferior!

  76. JYOTI YADAV types fake jernos have ruined the credibility of ThePrint. I can also say that JYOTI should stop being a YADAV and should grow up as a jerno. But NO. JYOTI YADAV types fake jerno’s job is driving paid agendas. They can be anything but jernos.

  77. Next time Irfan Pathan brings his wife outside in veil.
    Ask him to be more cricketer and less muslim.
    I respect that person though.
    ..
    It’s HinduPhobia,
    Sickularism

  78. What The Hell Is wrong With This article. Even Japanese baseball Player waves Katana doesn’t mean They Will serve Gangis Kha n delete This article i suggest You

  79. You are attacking his/her identity..!
    ..
    Can we ask the same for Sikhs to stop wearing Kripan.
    Or
    A Muslim to stop wearing his white topi…?
    This liberalism now has to stop.

  80. If you think Ravindra Jadeja tweeting #rajputboy is any offence according to ‘The Constitution of India’,you can complaint to police. If you respect the constitution, then Ravindra Jadeja tweeting that he is a son of Rajput is nothing offensive and constitution has given freedom of speech to everyone in the country.If you are a real secular,then you should question the government that why they ask to mention the religion in birth certificate and to write competitive exams,why they ask caste and religion to students

  81. Articles should also be written on someone who says proud to be muslim…ambedkar didn’t amended the word secular in indian constitution which later congress added….amedkar never believe india to be a secular…so write article on that too…this is the worst post i ever read in my entire life till now…

  82. First tell your country Pakistan people to stop saying insha’Allah in every insta post or every time they are being made to talk in mic
    You see your country we ll see ours

  83. Grow up PRINT. Find better content. By the way when are you printing article about Pakistani cricketers doing Namaz on cricket pitch/ground during live match

  84. I don’t think there is anything wrong about what he said and what he does or done.Some people are lacking in what to report.

  85. He is flaunting coz he is a rajput.. You better mind your own deeds… I understand you can boast shit about anybody coz that’s your job. This is the way how you earn. Bt try to post some legit stuff..

  86. The article writer is self having a castist mindset. She appears to have a very shallow knowledge of our society and culture. Why she is writing yadav with her name. To get benifis show and declare yourself as dalit and obc but to take pride in being a Rajpoot or bramhin is crime what kind of these people are.

  87. Linking Jadejas video with Ambedkar Jayanti and then exaggerating so long on caste……suggest writer should find some interesting topics and not waste time like this…….includes readers time as well.

  88. @Jyoti Yadav or whosoever contributed in this opinion:

    If you want India to be a caste-less society then you, Govt. of India and all Indians need to do following things:

    1. First of all remove your Family Name “Yadav” from your name as it identifies caste in a similar way “Ravindra Jadeja” is identifying himself as a Rajput. Similarly, I recently found actor Randeep Hooda flaunting his “Jat” caste on a first time heard “International Jat Day”.

    2. Second, end the reservation based on Caste and start it for a limited period (~15 years) on Economical status of a family so that one generation comes out of poverty and rest generations then compete with others as unreserved individuals.

    3. Third, advocate a Universal Civil Code in India where there is no difference law for any religion or any caste in India.

    4. Fourth, ban all religious teachings and spiritual teachings be it Muslim teachings in Madrasas, Mosques, Sikh teachings in Gurudwaras, Hindu teachings in Temples, Shrines, Gurukuls, Christian teachings through different Religious organizations etc. as the scriptures talk about different roles and different varna/castes in the Society and its universal in almost all religions.

    5. Fifth, ban historical texts to be taught in India because when kids or anyone reads Indian mythology, they find Kshatriyas as the most powerful social group and when they read medieval history, they find Rajputs and Marathas as the most powerful social groups. So, history is filled with heroic sagas of sacrifices of those Rajput and Maratha Heroes, which is not easy to ignore. So, its better to ban historical teachings.

    6. Moreover, if you, along with Indian Govt. or Citizens supporting you, are successful do the above changes in the Indian Social system, then please do one last thing to ban religion from India and make one universal religion named “Indianism”.

    I think, there is no other remedy of your problem to cope up with the Indian social system. Or else, there is an escape route many other Indians like you are taking which is to fly abroad and settle there permanently because neither they can change the Indian society and nor they can learn to live or adjust with this society. This is how it is. So, it is up to you and to all of us Indians to choose what to do.

    I do not intend to hurt any sentiments . I am expressing my thoughts on this issue that you’ve raised as I also have freedom of expression.
    I hope its worth the effort. Take Care.

  89. When lower castes take reservation then they should accept that they belong to lower caste thatswhy they are taking reservations. In present scenario office of high rank are mostly aquared by lower caste person so we upper caste can atleast praise ourselves that we belong to upper caste thatswhy not getting job, every person Cary their caste aur family background tradition. It is his talent, just showing the sword doesn’t show caste distinction but in reality it’s reservation which show distinction and says lower caste doesn’t have power to face upper caste without added benefit. So, I kindly request you to right article on need of reservation not on pointing someone’s . You don’t have skill to Play with sword I think that’s why you are jealous of him .

  91. The Print you are always a biased piece of shit at these hard times you have nothing good or analytical that one can learn from it to show in an article.

  92. Gandhi didn’t support Ambedkar on Casteless Society (Check Poona Pact). Gandhi and Nehru were against Ambedkar because he was a dalit that’s why Ambedkar said in an interview with BBC that Gandhi was double dealing and he is a agent of British. Ambedkar hated Communists. Commies are now showing their fake love for Ambedkar. The kshatriyas (Rajputs) who lost war were casted out of the kingdom and they use to eat cows because no one would give them food and that’s how dalits caste was formed. British used this to their advantage to divide Indians to rule and congress and commies follows same formula. Commies say that they are atheists but they fully support Jihadis and Christian Missionaries. This article is just their propaganda to target Hindu community using caste and Ambedkar. Grow up Jyothi Yadav, not going to fall for your commie tricks anymore.

  93. Dumbest article I read this week…….the writer and editor have so much time on their hands to write such useless articles

  94. You are talking about baba saheb ambededkar and insulting his constitution by being negatively biased … Our constitution gives freedom to follow one’s religion and caste as they want till they don harm other religions or discriminate for anything based on caste … and you are so free and have no work to publish such useless articles .. who cares if he weild sword or not at his backyard .. get a life do something productive .. atleast go back to your usual anti gov stance though that’s also of no use ..

  95. The fact that his celebration could be related to casteism didn’t come to me till I read this article. I thought he was giving us a wonderful glimpse of his and our culture which is one among many……Unity in Diversity.
    That’s how I saw it.
    Now who is being a hate-maker or a snowflake!!!!

  96. Are you Out of Your Mind? The Print, before you loose the little amount of credibility you are left with, Please grow up. If I say/express that I am Punjabi, means I am racist and disrespecting Gujratis, Haryanvis etc. OR if I say that I am a Man that means I don’t believe in Equality. Bull Shit!!!!

  97. I think being proud of your caste isn’t bad. It’s someone’s identity. But doing discrimination on the basis of caste is unacceptable. This Marxist strategy of diluting religious or caste based identities won’t work. We have several linguistic and cultural identities in India and we all are proud of these. What is required is to make the sure that any discrimination based on one’s idenitity won’t work in our society.

  98. I am stunned and surprised at the narrow minded views the author had to share. Also, worries me that such weirdos have the audacity to write this kind of content, publish and get away unquestioned. I see absolutely no harm in anyone feeling proud of their root and heritage unless they are not demeaning any other individual. How can Citizens with pride and honour in a free independent sovereign country possibly be a matter of concern to anyone ?

  99. Stupid article.. Comparing invaders with protectors. Rajputs protected our land, and Ghazni was a invader. This simple fact makes the difference. Although point on casteism is spot on. But the example given here is very childish and stupid.

  100. Okay. What about paki players offering prayers on the cricket ground? Or wearing skull caps, or having beards? Any identification with your heritage is offensive to someone or the others, especially those with self-esteem challenges. Brahmins wearing traditional dresses or shaving their heads. There are so many things.

  101. So having a segment in our army named as Rajputana Rifles is also. Creating a divide OR demeaning the lives of those fighting against the caste system? And he’s just fighting with the lockdown as any normal person is.

  102. मोहतरमाआपको जातिवाद से इतनी नफरत है तो जातिगत आरक्षण पर आपने एक भी लाइन नहीं बोली है जो कि इस देश को दीमक की तरह खाता जा रहा है और एक दूसरे के प्रति भेदभाव पैदा कर रहा है।।🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳

  103. So having a segment in our army named as “Rajputana Rifles” is also. Creating a divide OR demeaning the lives of those fighting against the caste system?

  104. So having a segment in our army named as “Rajputana Rifles” is also. Creating a divide OR demeaning the lives of those fighting against the caste system?
    How irrelevant your posts can be !

  105. The writer brought in a new cast angle for a simple act of celebration by Jaddu….every player enjoys a milestone n celebrate in his own style for fun n expressing the happiness…1.3 billion Indians n many others outside india thoroughly enjoy this act of Jadeja n lookforward to seeing it more often, that means he should do well for India every time he gets on to the cricket ground….don’t mess around with simple happiness of people in general n jadeja in particular by giving a cast color to the whole act with your narrow thinking and petty mindedness…we already hv enough problems in the country n for God’s sake pl don’t add more with your silly imagination….

  106. I think you should have studied something so that you could have got a job rather than publishing such useless articles. Ambedkar never wanted to make India casteless you Illiterate. He wanted to remove discrimination. Having pride about your caste is not wrong and to me he is not doing injustice to anyone in that video.. shut up and go to sleep

  107. How can you be so dumb? So useless I mean seriously so useless? I think you should have studied something so that you could have got a job rather than publishing such useless articles. Ambedkar never wanted to make India casteless you Illiterate. He wanted to remove discrimination. Having pride about your caste is not wrong and to me he is not doing injustice to anyone in that video.. shut up and go to sleep

  108. Whatever is written, is a personal opinion, as you write at the last. But in your personal opinion, you disagree with the Sir jadeja showing his personal believes and opinions. It is written since he represents India and shares a vast crowd as his fans, his caste beliefs should not come on the local platforms.
    But then you are a media house, how does your personal views matter in this situation. You are a media of information, by presenting your personal views on your own platform which is followed by again a huge number of people, is motivating in the wrong sense. How could you post your personal opinions against an Indian cricketer. You are not an individual. You cannot use media house to propogate your own personal views.

  109. A frivolous individual act has been blowed out of proportion and given a caste tag. The author has a caste suffix to her name and has the temerity to comment. An act which Seinfeld would say ‘nothing wrong with that’. Surely, The Print has much more priority than this.

  110. Well written Jyoti.
    We are with you.
    Keep coming out with such bold articles.
    Let haters hate. Just show them the finger.

  111. If he is rajput what’s harm in it… Idont understand. He is not saying anything to any other cast people. If he is wrong then Brahmins should not wear janeyu, Sikhs should not wear turban, Muslims should not shave mustaches….idiot ….

  112. I have written in newspapers more than once that the politicians should stop accepting weapons a symbol representing various religion. But I don’t see the politicians would ever understand. The acceptance of weapons by political leaders including PM (which also happens to be birth place of cricket hero) has increase many folds. After all he is a Cricketer who wants keep himself . It is shame when weapons are getting misused to attack people in the name of caste, religion, his behavior is highly condemnable.

  113. This article shows the caste bias of the writer. There is so much nonsense in it that I did not read it after the first couple of paragraphs. How could it be selected for publication? Please remember that the government of India taught us the caste system as I knew nothing about it till I had to apply to study medicine in a government college. It seems obvious to me that the author something to gain by perpetuating his caste thinking, so blinded is he by caste that a simple entertaining video is seen this way. Shame on the author for berating a national hero.

  114. Iam not rajputh.. bt i love jaddu.. i hav no problm with his caste… He showed his talents other than crickt… N about his caste.. for writer- if u hav caste pride show us dat.. bt not defaming other caste.. he also respcts other castes…

  115. Your views on caste-pride exuberant show-off of one’s caste are well taken but just think how the dream you are talking about is going to be realised when on the very basic level each one of the individuals of this nation including you are accepting and showing-off their caste by writing it in their titles. Never.

  116. So celebrating once ethnicity is bad according to you guys. See don’t make talking about once caste a taboo. People from different parts of India take great pride in the achievement of their respective states. This is accepted and it should be. However one should not disrespect others caste.Jadeja did not do that and as long he does not disrespect other castes he can take pride in his identity as a rajput.
    Jadeja never said that his identity as a rajput is more important than his identity as an Indian unlike some other people I can name.
    Unity in diversity

  117. This article doesn’t make any sense. actually you are anti-Indian that’s why you are writing this shitt type articles.shame on you.

    • Fools lile you always see through a diffrent perspective. Whats wrong in it. He is a Rajput whats wrong in it. It means Ambani should not say that he is ambani just because some poor people hurt that he proud to be rich. Its ridiculous don’t try to judge people until you have no common sense amd repect for a player like Jaddu

  118. Her claims are indeed laughable and defy logic On the contrary, there is overwhelming research evidence to suggest that individuals who understand their own culture are more likely to have high degree of tolerance towards people from other backgrounds.

  119. People have better things to do than reading this Bull shit article, it has become a practice nowadays to make a mountain out of a mole

  120. I’m astounded at the author’s attempts at exploring inter-connections between Ravindra Jadeja’s “Rajput” identity and caste based oppression. She is drawing a long bow in suggesting that a mere display of ones identity has potential to breed ‘caste based’ or ‘religious’ unrest. Her claims are indeed laughable and defy logic to say the least.

    On the contrary, there is overwhelming research evidence to suggest that individuals who understand their own culture are more likely to have high degree of tolerance towards people from other backgrounds.

    Also I’m quite concerned to see how a popular figure in cricket is being targeted. Where is the balance? if it not fair that Mr Jadeja be asked for his views prior to publishing such narcissist view point.

  121. If you don’t have anything interesting or truth to show,then you are posting that shit.
    If you think that much then you can only play in place of Jaddu.
    He is the best feilder India have .
    You cannot compare anyone.
    First see yourself who are you .
    You don’t have anything to do then doing that shit.
    Oh My God.

  122. I think the writer made a few mistakes in her article. Yes I don’t believe or support anything casteist. Similarly, Jadeja’s love of being a Rajput himself may not necessarily mean that he does not like or hate others for their being of different caste or race. If someone loves his own mother that doesn’t mean that he hates others mother’s. And who knows Jadeja may not think of Rajputs as a caste but as a people. As far as Mr. Ashish Kumar’s observation that Brahmins eating non veg. Sir, please note that the Brahmins of Bengal, Assam, Kerala, Himachal, Uttarakhand, Orissa, Kashmir have been eating non vegetarian from time immemorial. Moreover, pointing out the castes of icons like Tendulkar & Rohit Sharma is a mistake as these people are above such petty stupid things. The time has come when Hindus must discard caste values for once & all.

  123. What a stupid article. Rajputs, marathas, solankis and so many others pride themselves for the rich heritage and values. And jadeja has contributed far for this country than you cheap fellas who see every other person from a single lense except few beloved ones.

    I am not offended by Jadeja’s hashtag. You your brains and stop gee-zing. When muslims offer prayers on the roads, wear round cap, females wear hijab even in sports… what do they send as a message? An oppression? Or their faith ? Or their culture or what?

    Let people live their lives and stop judging. You are nobody but a trash writer seeking for a limelight by writing cheap articles for narrow minded people.

    Shame.

  124. Come on Print grow up…. find some good stuff for an article. Shame on you dear Journalist. Ppl like you are creating wall by publishing such stupid articles , and you are the reason ppl are losing interest in print media.

  125. 1) Degrading someone for being born in a certain section of society is casteism, You just did that….

    2) The fact is comparing stupid invaders with one of the bravest communities is utter nonsense, I really pity the negative mindset of the writer and his far from mature comments.
    You need to grow up and get yourself a life

  126. Foremost thing we should be doing is raising the level of journalism. People, here is an example of immature and baseless articles written in name of journalism. This is what we need to avoid to ensure we get a better breed.

  127. Congratulations, you ‘ve successfully created a damp in The Print. These articles will soon take The Print to our national media.

  128. Jalti hai beta jalti h logo ki Rajputon ko dekh kr saale jinke maa baap rajputo ki chatr chhaya me jiye unki hi keede aaj Rajputon pr ungli utha rhe he

  129. It’s not senseless but useless column.
    How you can even think and create such controversial topic in pandemic time. Hats OFF to you.

  130. This is no time to get recognized by the caste. Caste cannot be greater than unity of country. Even with all these so called great castes in India. We should never forget that the India was ruled by foreigners for more than 600 years and had to fight for own independence for such a long time with so much of sacrifice. This would have not all happened if the countrymen were united. Be united by country not divided by castes. Thanks Jai Hind

  131. Seriously, since when mentioning your caste has become so objectionable. Did he mention anywhere that he belongs to a superior or inferior caste. And please have your facts right before shit posting. Rajput is not even a caste . It is a community. And if you hate such people why don’t you remove your surname written in all bold at the start of the article.
    The print has the most hypocrite and noobie writers. Just knowing flawless English doesn’t make you a good writer.

  132. It is because of this castiesm that India is facing all sorts of problems now.If whole country was united before the foreigners entered. Our country would have been so advanced by now.How could one feel proud of any of castes because all have contributed equally for this country’s downfall.Never forget that despite of all the great castes in this country.India was ruled by outsiders for more than 600 years…Then why to take pride of any of caste. Atleast now it’s time to realize that fact and be united otherwise we cannot develop. Jai hind.

  133. “The Print” don’t behave like a child. You should grow. Write something useful. All of your articles are biased. You are promoting casteism by making these small things in to big issues. The print, don’t print hatred in our minds.

  134. First of all rajput is a clan and you are seeking their right to expression. On the other hand he didn’t stated anything derogatory if he is proud of his identity then he should. Like pathans are proud of their words, Sikhs are proud of their service attitude and they should be. What you found offensive in it? You are attacking the very Indian culture, it’s diversity and it’s flourism. I’m ashamed that so called intellectual of today’s India judge people based on their tolerance rather than previous norms of their respect towards other community.

  135. अरे ओ प्रिंट न्यूज वालों , एक बार अपने गिरेबान में झांक कर देखो, ऐसी विकृत मानसिकता लेकर चले हो महाराणा प्रताप और शिवाजी महाराज के चरित्र का वर्णन करने।
    तुम्हारी औकात नहीं है किसी क्षत्रिय समाज के उपर कमेंट करने की, जो समाज अपने राष्ट्र प्रेम, आन बान शान और मर्यादा के लिए प्राण तक न्यौछावर करने को तैयार रहता है। तुम जैसे निकृष्ट लोगों को ऐसे समाज पर उंगली उठाने का अधिकार नहीं है।
    और तुम्हें क्या लगता है कि तुम सबको गुमराह करके इस देश की शान रविन्द्र जडेजा को अपमानित कर दोगे, तो ये तुम्हारी भूल है।
    इतना संकीर्ण मानसिकता लेकर चले हो तुलना करने।
    ईर्ष्या रखोगे तो उसी लायक रह भी जाओगे।
    बेटा सुधर जाओ।

  136. Problem with these self styled liberals is that that they see Indian society from western standards and expect the western solution ( like black and whites –where all white symbols are taken as symbols of oppression ) , which on long term , only create unnecessary divisive issues …When Japanese samurai flaunt their swords and craftsmanship, these same liberals applauds in name of culture relativism , even it is being known how Japanese society in past was segregated just like Indian caste system …..It is better to judge the Asian cultures by Asian standards —- first swords crafts is not exclusive to upper castes –infact many tribes accommodated or sanskritised themselves as Ksatriyas or Rajputs which the shows the social mobility of caste system in India …being warrior in ancient India and medieval India gave oneself chance to move upward in caste system …even many merchant communities and peasants flaunts swords …. Swords playing also forms the part of many traditional warrior dances in India , that does not means they are discriminatory or castiest
    So flaunting of swords is a cultural symbols of bravery and courage and swinging it does not limit to one upper caste community.
    The writer of article is really novice and she has no idea of History of India and she is seeing the reality from the prism of Brahmani cal author, which itself is ironic ….If Jadeja start discriminatory other castes or prohibit the sword swinging to other castes , then he should be held accountable … Moreover, I expect writer to read History of Land ceiling laws and how Yadav avoided the sharing of benefits of land ceiling with other SCs and how they emerge as neo landlords and still controlling the politics and lands …the author seem to be from very privileged background , who does not bother to even read and get information of Indian society and its culture
    I c

  137. Absolutely….Caste needs to be abolished…..But first, before abolishing it, why don’t you raise voice against providing reservations based on caste and category…….??? Caste was initially made to identify the sect of people based on the work they did. Unfortunately, with the passing days, true meaning of caste got altered by few so called “democrats and liberals” and was used for their own personal benefits.

    Comming to your article, Sir RJ was wavering sword in a Rajput style. Now, till it is within its limit, it is acceptable. He is a true Rajput and if you have a little knowledge about history, you can find that Rajputs were warriors for whom weilding swords were a requirement. It’s their tradition….Why u are bothered about it……

    If you want to write articles, kindly write on the matters which is of utmost importance like Corona and it’s impacts, Indian economy, Employment in India etc. and not lame articles like these.

  138. Is this any different than so many muslims claim they are musalman and say it with a certain pride that alludes to their ‘warrior’ qualities and their past glory. I know of americans claiming they are just americans and germans saying they are germans does it mean they are following hitler ?
    The print needs to get a life or just bloody shutdown. You guys are so far down the path of self-destruction that seeing anybody being proud just dampens your goal to bring down this nation and leave it hollow and soulless. Get lost The pring

  139. The left liberals always impose their rules of regimentation on every individual and dictate how a person should behave. They don’t enjoy the heroic deeds of any one except themselves. So peevish and call themselves liberals.

  140. And The Print media must stop being biased and grow up to become a true media reporter. I wonder if someone would ask questions about hashtags saying Dalitboy. Where were you when slogans like “Tilak, Taraju aur Talwar, inko maro jute chaar”. And to be clear, this was a political slogan used by BSP in UP elections. Where the hell were you biased seculars. I wonder if Ambedkar ji would support such slogans.

  141. Well,the one who has written this article is such a idiot and a hypocrite. There is nothing known as casteless society in India and thanks God its not.
    And,views are not personal
    If you talk of casteless society,protest against reservations first.

  142. Who is this editor who let’s out articles like these into public ?

    What bothers me more is that this video clip doesn’t portray any feelings of casteism at all.

    The only people who do this “boy” thing are jaats and rajputs. Has anyone seen people from Jharkhand or Orissa or Karnataka or as a matter of fact any other state, write there surname or caste and get it printed on their bikes.

    Take my own name for example, my surname won’t even fit on a bike.

    This article is pure crap. I spent more time writing this than reading even a quarter of it.

    Get a life!

  143. How low can you stoop to write such articles? We Indians are proud of our tradition, and that’s not casteism.

  144. I believe no one thought Ravindra Jadeja’s celebration the way you have portrayed it .

    And this is NOT a compliment.

    I think the shit is in your mind to twist a national player’s celebration this way. You are talking about a player who is supremely talented and one of the best all rounders in the world .

  145. What’s wrong about being proud about yourself, your cast, your religion or your nation as long as you dont hate others. Dear the print, pls grow up as an publication which can see the things through and develope a better understanding of indian society and its roots .

  146. The Print, Please start printing news instead of personal views.

    Your personal views gives glimpse of deep hatred towards a community or part of it. You expose yourself.

  147. Nobody even cares what Jadeja does… Dumb Print had time for this.. I hope they write an article about Skull Caps, Burkhas too.. These things offend my sentiments too

  148. Strongly condemn this highly biased, stupid and offensive article. If this is freedom of press, then I am for it’s withdrawal. You have lowered the standards of journalism. Shame on you.

  149. “like those good-for-nothing people who project someone else’s achievement as their own by simply pointing out their caste association”

    You mean like people flaunting mughal rule for centuries who had no part in it and are infact product of rape and conversion by invaders? What’s up with loyalty to those people ? What’s up with taking credit of some muslim MMA fighter who they don’t even share a race or nationality with, but it’s okay to say I’m proud muslim because we share a religion and nothing else with XYZ celebrity?

  150. This article is in bad taste. Sadly, a media organisation portraying itself as a liberal medium has to endorse a myopic piece devoid of merit and reeking of reverse discrimination. I am not a fan of the said player’s on field antics, but he has every right to be proud of his upbringing, culture and roots. Writing such misguided articles, replete with casteist undertones, lays bare the writer’s prejudice or guilt, whichever may be the case. Please, act responsibly. This is no small deed, this is incendiary, biased and divisive to say the least.

  151. What is the Qualification of @jyotiyadaav to write such articles?
    Has she been a @BCCIWomen player? If no then who are you, Jyoti, to write such Articles?

    Please leave Cricket related articles to sites like @ESPNcricinfo

  152. You can’t expect every professional to be a sensitive person or having high knowledge of society.
    I don’t expect people of his kind to beat an educated person in an intellectual debate.
    He’s a cricketer and he certainly got that part covered.
    I think the writer of this post overreacted.

    Ideally, everyone should have the idea behind your article, I support the logic but we aren’t living in an ideal world, are we?

  153. Mind blowing analysis ! For your next article, may I suggest that you do a caste based empirical study (as a follow-up) on who all cheer for Jadeja (on and off field) when he reaches a milestone and waves his bat/ sword – it must only be the Rajputs, I am sure. And also, we cricket lovers are dying curious what you make of Shikhar Dhawan’s Thigh Five – I am sure it is symbolic of the male dominant patriarchal society – must be spoken about. And my God (literally) Sachin, looking up to his bhagwan and father each time he scored – Hindu rites based domination. Oh wait, we all forgot about the Pakistani players kneeling and praying to Allah each time they make a mark – so bad, mixing religion into sports. GROW UP please – celebration is celebration and identity is identity. Shekhar Sir, sad to see that you tweeted this article. A disappointed Print reader and a cricket fan 🙁
    PS: Jadeja is already towering all rounder in his own right , and he doesn’t need to ‘grow up’ there (check stats, if you can)

  154. congratulations for the beautiful article also let me give a scoop for a new article Sachin Tendulkar is a brahmin and he drinks alcohol and eats meat.
    Rohit Sharma also eats non-veg he is a brahmin too. , Please write articles on these too. Please also write an article on the country name that says Hindustan and the Media house that calls Itself The Hindustan times it is spreading casteism which is not good for society.

    • Brother, first of all have a deep insight of a thing before speaking on it. Brahmins comprises of two sub castes -“Brahman” and “Bhumihar”. Bhumihar are considered to be warriors with land and spiritual knowledge, whereas Brahmans are considered to be saints and remain involved in spiritual and religious works. When the matter of being vegetarian or non-vegetarian comes, it depends on choice and parental culture. There is nothing written anywhere that this caste should not eat this. Throw your opinions in your caste-criticising mind and keep a check it doesn’t comes out.

    • Sorry to note that you mentioned Sachin consumes alcohol. He doesn’t consume Alcohol nor does he endorse any brands of tobacco or alcohol brands. Pls ascertain the facts and then respond. Thanks.

    • अरे ओ प्रिंट न्यूज वालों , एक बार अपने गिरेबान में झांक कर देखो, ऐसी विकृत मानसिकता लेकर चले हो महाराणा प्रताप और शिवाजी महाराज के चरित्र का वर्णन करने।
      तुम्हारी औकात नहीं है किसी क्षत्रिय समाज के उपर कमेंट करने की, जो समाज अपने राष्ट्र प्रेम, आन बान शान और मर्यादा के लिए प्राण तक न्यौछावर करने को तैयार रहता है। तुम जैसे निकृष्ट लोगों को ऐसे समाज पर उंगली उठाने का अधिकार नहीं है।
      और तुम्हें क्या लगता है कि तुम सबको गुमराह करके इस देश की शान रविन्द्र जडेजा को अपमानित कर दोगे, तो ये तुम्हारी भूल है।
      इतना संकीर्ण मानसिकता लेकर चले हो तुलना करने।
      ईर्ष्या रखोगे तो उसी लायक रह भी जाओगे।
      बेटा सुधर जाओ।

    • Bahi tu apne aap ko hindu nahi manta manta hai to phir hindustan naam se kyu parshan hai aur agr buddha relegion ko manta hai to kaun sa buddha relegion sect se hai mahayan ya henyana hindustan naam se bhi parshani had hai yaar . Ambedkar ke time se bohut aage aa chuki hai duniya india ka President sc hai pm obc hai aur 50 percent se jayada cast system kahtama ho chuka hai aaj public schools mai ek sc dm ka baccha pandit ke bacche ke sath padhta bai obc St sc ke bacche bhi normal public school mai sath padhte hai tum bhi apni soch badlo brahmin ko leke dono hath se tali bajte hai mere kayi sc dost hai jo bhai se badh kar hai jinka jutha Mai khata hu aur vo mera ab tum bhi change karo khud ko

    • The article is against casteism and Sachin drinking or Rohit Sharma eating non-veg is supporting the the writer’s stance rather than yours.
      As far as ‘Hindustan’ is concerned, it stems from the indus civilisation and the fact that the innate character or soul India is Hindu.

    • So I wonder would it all appear so offensive to ther writer if Jadeja was not a Rajput???
      I ser nothing hugely wrong with flaunting and be proud of one’s heritage… I am sure there are more offensive things you worry about!!

  155. Means when you have no content to post then you come on to this level ……. Chhi be……

    Aur by the way is post me jaddu ne kahi pe Kisi aur cast etc Ka discuss Kiya hai kya?
    To phir kyu?
    And sword celebration is his personal way to celebrate and jaddu ko talwar chalana Pasand hai to phir wo sword celebration Kar sakte hai .
    Isme kahi pe koi caste related matter hai hi nhi phir bhi beech me kyu ghusa dete ho mere Bhai…..

    And
    Views are personal by the way

    • Pathtic topic.. without knowing the disposition of the person no one gave u d right to write a whole article about a person.. pathetic journalism.. u jyoti yadav entered ravinders mind and got all thr answers.. pathetic.. i cant even say more.. grow up

    • Useless post
      What prblm u have with his sword or his being feeling proud on his history or his ancestors or hi caste… He did nthng which oppress the other lower castes or make anyone to feel shame on his religion or caste
      It’s his interest, nd I’m sure u have never admired his art of playing cricket but u have prblm if he describes his caste by putting a hashtag nd keep ur prblm to ur self don’t post such fool things again…… Just improve ur way of thinking then give advice….

  156. I wish this article had also included, how people started abusing RAJPUT community on failing to win wars. If you’re going all guns on one public figure for showing his caste pride but keeping closed eyes on other community public figures literally abusing the whole caste, then purpose is not served. You’re just special privilege for some to get away with any thing.

  157. These english speaking talibani should stop forcing there decision on people, you first stop being a talibani communist who want every person to think like them

  158. That’s a tight slap on millions of dimwits occupying our social media platforms (and 100 millions on the ground) who try to justify such shameless flaunting of nothing but their caste by subtle or overt means while questioning reservations in the same breath.

    And they are not smart enough to even understand the irony of their position!

    • Are you smart enough to appreciate the irony that this article has been written by someone who flaunts her caste in the very surname she uses?

    • Muslims har jagah har post ya kahi bhi likhte h
      “Inshalla” “allamudillah”
      Bhim army wale likhte “jai bhim”
      Tribes ko bachane k liye special scemes chal rhi h government ki
      But aga koi Rajput ” Jai Rajputana ” likhde ya ” Rajput boy” likh de to in so called “liberals” ko kaafi dard ho jaata h
      Kher kya hi kar sakte h ap jaese logo ka

      Worst article
      Sick writer
      Shame THE PRINT
      Get well soon

  159. Actually most of the people didn’t have realized about his casteism related feeling just b’coz of the role he is playing for the Nation, after reading this post many people may react offensively but this is actually the bitter truth of our society, swinging the bat in celebration is some act which can be considered, but yes, mentioning yourself as Rajputana or something else is offensive, casteism is a horrable event!

    • Absolutely… A person can shout on Mike about him being proud of being a descendant of Mughal with all the thousands of people praising his speech and that will be alright for our secular nation but a person can’t be proud of being a descendant of the Savior of hindustan and Hindus (👏 👏 👏)

  160. The most casteist bigot are Ahirs. And this shameless lady is calling others. She must call her community out , casteist leader like Akhilesh, Laloo. This Jyoti Yadav, ohh neo yadav herself talks about her yadav/ahirwaad etc. She is talking about others.

    • Shameless fellow,

      She has brains enough to call out casteism (and even referred to Yadav boys thing too) including that of her own ilk.

      If you had the vision for a better India, you would have actually appreciated her stance.

      • Maybe it is more important to call out castiest political parties than a sword wielding cricketer. If a Muslim or Christian sports person invoke the name of Allah or prophet or jesus , are we going to criticize that too? Because countless atrocities were committed in their names too. Caste is a part of our political system, constitution and educational system. The writer should address that in her article instead of this woke mental gymnastics.

      • He has made his country proud on a international stage.
        Rajputs bravery is visible even in the Indian Army till today.

        So dont talk shit about him and them.
        Stupid Communists lyk you havent done shit for this country.
        So next time please shut up.

      • What do you know about the is system ,when even the govt. hasn’t stopped and removed the names of different regiments of army ,why should the individual not feel happy about something they can without harming others ,like he did.

  161. hey if your are going to compare pakistani team and indian team pls know the case of sole hindu pakistani bowler with whom the “Sons of qasim ” wont even eat food with , wonder if baba saheb ambedkar would be okay with that , also just google rajputs exists in religions apart from hinduism and take pride in the their history , also on either side of the border , so does that mean muslim rajput (still retain surnnames like chouhan , rajput , solanki) and people like Zulkifar ali bhutto (also had muslim rajput hertiage) are taking “caste bias ” beyond hinduism ?.
    also as far as treating rajputs as an ethinicity is considered pls refer to shahid afridi and imran khan taking pride in being pathan , every warring community upholds certain values and skills as respectable be it jatt sikhs , pathan , gorkhas etc

  162. I seriously didn’t read this shit after I went through the shitty headline.
    Bs itna hee kahunga writer ko…
    jaa kr apni bhains chadao

  163. The basic premise of the article is flawed and poorly thought out. The Rajputs were not a foreign force that enslaved Sri Lanka or Pakistan or Nepal or anyone else. So comparing this to Pakistanis celebrating as Ghazni’s is just not same. And within India no one is bitter about inter state conquests like the rajputs invading Delhi or Marathas invading the south. This is just another example of a thin skinned Indian being offended by everything and rushing in to shut down Free expression of any kind not unlike political goons thrashing people and destroying business because of “hurt sentiments”. Grow up and learn to manage your sentiments.

    • She explained it enough. But casteism is so engrained in our psyche that we can’t understand even simple stuffs. Lemme help you.

      1. Caste identities are regressive cuz India is an unequal casteist society with low (humiliation, violence, rape, death) Castes and High castes- all acts of inhumanity happened via Caste supremacy for centuries and even now.

      2. These stuffs happened in past. As well in present.

      3. There is no end for this road. You will have 100s of men from 100s of castes flaunting Brahmin Boy, X Boy, Y boy…. 1000s of castes exist.

      Do we want such sort of society where we take pride of nothing but our caste?
      And then, you will talk of uniting Hindus?! Seriously?

      Think!

      • Think what?
        People also take pride of their country. What’s there to proud about? It’s just a piece of land. A lot of bloodshed has happened due to lands who are differentiated by some man made borders.
        U don’t see an article about that.
        Same can be applied with religion. Any Pakistani or muslim cricketer doing prayer pose after scoring a century or 5 wicket haul. Isn’t that differentiating in the name of religion? More people have suffered from religion than caste. Yet I have never seen an article from anywhere criticizing muslim player doing that. Neither should there be. Because no one should take any offense in that.
        Just like no one should take any offense in Ravindra doing sword celebration. Him being proud of his caste isn’t discriminating people of other castes.
        This is a poorly thought, nonsensical article. Almost remind of those woke Guardian articles spewing idiocy in name for personal opinion.

      • should take any offense in that.
        Just like no one should take any offense in Ravindra doing sword celebration. Him being proud of his caste isn’t discriminating people of other castes.
        This is a poorly thought, nonsensical article. Almost remind of those woke Guardian articles spewing idiocy in name for personal opinion.

      • Jadeja is free to flaunt WHATEVER HOWEVER he pleases. You are no one to tell how others are supposed to act.
        If your sentiments have been hurt kindly close your eyes and get off his twitter profile, nobody asked you to see that in the first place.

      • So people shouldn’t be proud of their communities. He just said he is proud to be a Rajput and this make him a castist. If an Ambedkarite say he is proud to be Ambedkarite it is right( I respect Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar sir)it is ok. If a Punjaban say he is proud to be a Sikh, it is ok. If Muslim guy post he is proud to be Muslim, it is ok. Why such hypocrisy?

      • But instead of fulminating on others’ expression of identity, what can connect people are small acts of appreciation, acknowledging their joy. Move on and enjoy our diversity.
        I appreciate Rifleman Yogender Yadav, Abdul Hamid, Vikram Batra, Hari Singh Nalwa, Phukan, Hangpan Dada, the Mahars and the Marathas, the Sikhs and the Gorkhas, the Dogras and the Garhwalis…
        There are so many to celebrate.
        Don’t be so constipated.

      • The word “Caste” was introduced to India by the British. Rajput is one of the many Indian tribes. And every tribe on the planet must be proud of themselves. Nothing wrong in self pride.
        Can you chose to flex your neuronal cells (think beyond archaich British Raj perspective about India? )

  164. The argument is self contradictory. And it reeks of hypocrisy. First, is identifying one self with their caste. Is it good or bad?. Going a stretch further identifying oneself with religion. Is that good or bad?. In a real socially equitable society you want ours to be,it should be wrong across the spectrum. When you say an upper caste person should not invoke his caste, same should be said about lower castes as well. I for one belong to lower caste. Secondly, Rajput identity does not necessarily mean it’s anti dalit or anti lower caste. There is nothing written like that. If you want to go by the identities of the oppression committed in history. Werent they individual acts. Of course some might have used their identity to oppress others. But by that logic what should we make of Muslims. Their history in India, atrocities committed in the name of religion. Justified by the wise men in courts basing their argument on THE written BOOK as acts against non believers =kafirs. In that sense the Hindus are still humiliated five times a day with loud speakers by invoking their identity so loudly. So stop pitting one caste against another. Equitable societies need not be uniform societes without diversity. So plz shut it madam.

  165. The only people who are offended by Jadeja asserting his identity is only these fake seculars. You guys are such hypocrites, you won’t dare tell certain religious minorities to not claim they are the supreme and call for crusade on non believers, but would gang up on someone who is just going about his own work. Get a life.

  166. This article makes no sense. There is nothing wrong in identifying by caste. A caste identity could provide feelings of belongingness or self-esteem.

  167. And all this woke rant from a person who puts her Cast front and center by including it in the name. Double standards/ hypocrisy thy name is the modern left progressive woke journalist.

  168. I appreciate the writer she is capable of writing an article out of nothing. She wrote this out of a 17sec video. She talks and lectures about caste but still she carries her caste name attached to name . She can join politricks with good future in it.

  169. Irony is that author cant even remove her caste surname but gives us free advice on casteless society.

    Welcome to La la land propagated by Woke liberals!!

      • Yeah sure she will mend only when called out.Dint she has moral responsibility to first put her house in order before accusing others.Liberals always have easy escape when called out.

        When Rahul -darling of liberals evoked as Janu brahmin she has no problem but problem arises for only People who worked their way up without nepotism

        Example of Priviledged Liberal eco system!!

      • The word “Caste” was introduced to India by the British. Rajput is one of the many Indian tribes. And every tribe on the planet must be proud of themselves. Nothing wrong in self pride.
