For the first time, the social problem of untouchability, which is peculiar to India, is being studied mathematically.

We have used Fuzzy Cognitive Maps and Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps to analyze the views of the revolutionary Periyar E. V. Ramasamy (17.09.1879 – 24.12.1973) who relentlessly worked for more than five decades to secure the rights of the oppressed people who were considered untouchables. This thought-provoking book will be of great interest to human rights activists, socio-scientists, historians, and above all, mathematicians.
