The Ambedkar Army or Bhim Army Bharat Ekta Mission or Bhim Army, also written as Bheem Army, is a Dalit-organisation in India. It was founded by Chandrashekhar Azad Ravan and Vinay Ratan Singh. The organisation is working for Dalit emancipation through education. It runs 350 free schools for Dalits in western Uttar Pradesh: Saharanpur, Meerut, Shamli and Muzaffarnagar. The organisation is named after B. R. Ambedkar. The main objective behind the movement is the social upliftment of the lower caste by peaceful means of education and social empowerment.
Bhim Army organised two big rallies in Jantar-Mantar, New Delhi, where thousands of protesters gathered to protest against the alledged atrocities that they say they continue to face and to demand the release of their leader.
