Satya Shodhak Samaj was a socio-religious reform movement founded by Jyotirao Phule in the 19th century in Maharashtra, India. It aimed at challenging the caste-based social hierarchy prevalent at that time and promoting social equality and justice. The movement focused on the upliftment of lower-caste communities, advocating for their rights and fighting against caste-based discrimination. The Satya Shodhak Samaj played a significant role in challenging the traditional Brahminical dominance and promoting social reforms in Maharashtra.
