Who has adhikar to do purva paksha is a relevant question. The Battle for Sanskrit answers the question. Whoever considers Sanskrit to be her sacred heritage and has the requisite skills to understand and deconstruct the opposing point of view can do purva paksha. Sacred heritage means something that is an integral part of one's way of life, a living tradition and something that gives positive meaning to one's life, an emancipatory tradition. The opponents treat Sanskrit as a dead artifact to be kept in a museum for analysis and admiration, while the adhikaris consider it a medium of wisdom and worship. The opponents treat Sanskrit as an oppressive language on women, tribals, Dalits and Abrahamic religions, while the adhikaris find in Sanskrit the way to transcend all false identities and oppressions.
Bhakti is a sacred Sanskritic tradition that thrives among the masses, irrespective of gender or caste and it makes all socioeconomic, bodily or mental constructions insignificant in front of Shri Bhagavan. Hence, bhaktas have the right to do purva paksha, only the requisite skills need to be developed.
