Q. Who among the following was related to “Sarvajanik Satyadharma”?
Explanation: Jyotiba Phule (1827-1890), born in Satara, Maharashtra, belonged to the mali (gardener) community and organised a powerful movement against upper caste domination and brahminical supremacy.
- Phule founded the Satyashodhak Samaj (Truth Seekers’ Society) in 1873, with the leadership of the samaj coming from the backward classes, malis, telis, kunbis, saris and dhangars.
- Phule’s works, Sarvajanik Satyadharma and Gulamgiri, became sources of inspiration for the common masses.
- Phule used the symbol of Rajah Bali as opposed to the brahmins’ symbol of Rama.
