    C)  Both 1 and 2    

    D)  neither 1 nor 2

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] In Brahmo Samaj, differences sprang up between Devendra Nath and Keshub. The immediate cause of the misunderstanding was in the old ministers of the Brahmo Samaj who still retained the sacrificial thread. Keshub insisted that those who retained these symbols of idolatry and caste should not be allowed to officiate as ministers. Maharshi Devendra Nath felt unwilling to deal harshly with old members and workers. About this time the progressive party solemnised an intercaste marriage in the Brahmo Samaj. Brahma Dharma, the Brahmo religion, was first codified by Maharshi Debendranath Tagore (father of Rabindranath Tagore) with the formulation of the Brahmo Dharma Beej and publication of the Brahma Dharmabook of 1848/ 1850 in 2 parts.
