People living in South India in the nineteenth century AD were subjected to many atrocities of untouchability. In those days the people were denied their rights under the rule of the Travancore king. It was a kind of hateful and jealous regime. The people who lived in those days regarded each other as enemies and even brothers born together fight each other. It became easy for the rulers of that time to enslave those who lived in disunity. Ayya Vaikundar brought together the enslaved people with his efforts and made them free from slavery. He wanted to create a peaceful social revolution among the people who were oppressed in the society and lived without identity due to social inequalities. He encouraged the oppressed people who were bound by customs to think and act on the path of morality. He sought to abolish caste which was a stumbling block to remove the inequalities found among the people. He instilled equality in those who came to him without regard to caste. He insists people to live with dignity and unity and created many principles and morals for life and he gave impetus to the development of man. The nature of this article is to prove that Vaikundar upholds his policy of social justice.
