Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Bhavan in Dadar, Mumbai was started initially by Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar as a press and library to print and disseminate the anti caste literature. Later on, Ambedkar Bhavan became as a big press, book stall and meeting halls, rooms and space for public and private events of Ambedkarite and other progressive groups in Mumbai. Today. early morning around 2 pm with an escort of more than 500 police and other security personnel the government authorities have demolished the building of Dr. Ambedkar Bhavan. They have also demolished the press which was started by Ambedkar and use to print his writings and anti caste literature. In protest, around 200 people have gathered in the local police station in Bhoivada in Dadar, Avd Prakash Ambedkar has also reached at the spot.

The same government that is trying to appropriate Ambedkar and celebrating him is also trying to demolish the original traces that Dr. Amebdkar left behind. This is a direct attack against Dr. Ambedkar, his thoughts and the Ambedkarite movement.
