Abstract

Traditionally, it was believed that religion, social status and property were the source of power and author it y through which a few controlled the liberty of the others. To over come this ,Ambedkar's political philosophy advocates the use of force and social organization in determining important issues in any society. He proposes that the combined strength of the untouchables alone was a remedy to their ailing issues. It was their strength alone that was capable of influencing the decision of the majority, which were at times contrary to their interests. The only method by which the community could overcome the impediment of their development was by relaying on the importance of being organized what others espoused through violence was intended to be achieved by Ambedkar through constitutional means.
