Responding to the anti-Brahmin poster, Former Supreme Court Judge, Markandeya Katju, said, " 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy' is anti-national slogan. It divides India into caste lines and so is part of divide and rule policy of our enemies. We must be united to face huge challenges before the country. There are many enlightened Brahmins who oppose the caste system, Dalits should unite with them."
