Dalit Burning Incident in Haryana was Due to Internal Fire! Says the Manuwadi Probe

When was last time Dalits in India did get  justice? Do you remember?

Try Google. Did you find?

I am certain that you won’t find a single case where Dalits have got justice in India. Justice for Dalits is a mirage. They never got justice in pre-independence and post-independence India. The whole state machinery including politicians, judiciary and police, which are manned by upper caste people, schemes and colludes to turn the table and blame the victims instead.

Just a week back the so-called high caste Rajputs in Sumpedh village in Haryana burnt two kids alive and seriously injuring their mother and father while they were sleeping in their home. Following which a probe was ordered into the incident. The forensic report has now been leaked to media. As expected the so-called forensic experts concluded that the two kids died due to an internal fire and not burnt by so-called upper caste Rajputs.

The report is not surprising because all previous investigations looking into dalit atrocities have been tampered and justice never been delivered to hapless dalit people. The same happened about recent gang rape and murder of two dalit minor girls in Badaun and more recently stripping and beating of a dalit family by Noida police.

The case is likely to be abandoned soon. Even the case goes to judiciary, there is no hope and it will only add to plight of victims by way of further victimization by Police and heavy judicial expenses, which the victims cannot bear. Justice in India is not blind. The side representing upper castes of the balance is always heavy. Judges’ mind tilted in favor of so-called upper castes because they themselves belong to those strata. The Indian judiciary never been able to deliver justice to Dalits .

Coming back to the case, let’s ask two questions:

  1. If the Rajput people are not involved why did they abscond after the crime?
  2. If it was incident of internal fire, why the victims would blame on unrelated others?

It is noteworthy that the victim has electricity connection and electricity stays 24 hours round the clock in the area. They are unlikely to use kerosene but the so-called forensic experts want us to believe otherwise.

Right from the occurrence of event the casteist forces tried to give a color of rivalry between two castes and that caste has nothing do here. Some even blamed Christians for engineering the incident though no Christians reside in the locality. A fact finding team led by some researchers had recently gone to the village and found gross human right violation that Rajput people commit on Dalits on daliy basis. Their finding as under:

  1. There is complete absence of sensitivity among upper caste people about plight of Dalits. Assertion of any rightful claim by Dalits in social, economical and political domain is met with hatred, outright violence, discrimination and exclusion.
  2. Eve-teasing and harassment of dalit women and girls by Rajput youth is rampant.
  3. In numerous occasions before the incident, the Rajputs had threatened the victim Jitendra of murder and elimination of his family.

The situation of dalits in India is worse that African American in USA and other countries. It is high time international community and United Nations take up their cause.

Manuwadi SC Gives Excuse of National Interest to Scrap Quota in Higher Education

Two manuwadi Brahmin judges of Supreme Court, Dipak Misra and P.C.Pant, today advised Hinduvtawadi Central Government to take steps to scrap reservation from higher educational institutions. This comes closely in the heel of recent remark by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat that reservation policy needs to be reviewed. This appears to be a big conspiracy to deprive dalits of whatever access they had to higher education.

Historically, dalits are denied access to education through religious sanction for centuries. It is the British who stopped the discrimination and allowed dalit children to attend schools and colleges. After independence, a model of 15% reservation in higher education and jobs was implemented due to relentless effort of Dr. Ambedkar.

Right from the time reservation policy implemented the manuwadi forces are making attempt to cripple the initiative that gives the dalits a slim hope of upliftment. The casteist forces have succeeded in diluting the reservation policy to a large extent. The cut-off mark is one such ploy. Dalit students securing below threshold marks are not being admitted and the vacant seats go to general category as a result.

The autonomous status of institution policy gives the teachers power to decide the future of students. Majority of teachers are upper castes and they deliberately fail dalit students and give very low marks. They have ruined career of many bright dalit students. Many students committed suicide because of harassment and violence by high caste teachers and students alike. From 2008 to 2011, as many as 18 dalit students in premier institutions like IITs and AIIMS committed suicide due to harassment by teachers.

Despite reservations only 1.8% of dalit students have access to higher education because of their very poor economic status. Reserved seats in many premier colleges and institutions regularly fall vacant due to lack of sufficient number of dalit student applicants. Vacant seats as per rule go to general students. Even this fact does not convince the manuwadi casteist forces. They want their domination over dalits and other backward castes to be absolute.

As I said before the Brahminical forces are making relentless effort to scrap reservation and perpetuate their hegemony. When the 27% reservation for Other Backward Classes in jobs implemented in late 80s the casteist forces responded by introducing privatization in education and majority of sectors in economy. They have effectively excluded private sectors including private education institutions from the reach of reservation policy.

When 27% reservation in higher education for OBC was introduced in early 2000s, the casteist forces managed to double the seats in existing governmental institutions and thereby able to remain unaffected by new policy. Now they want to scrap reservation in toto.

Recently the BJP ruled Rajasthan Government has introduced quota system for economically weaker sections in upper caste population. The ultimate attempt of these manuwadi forces is to do away with reservation policy by diluting and weakening it within.

Reservation is needed because extreme unjust social order. The upper caste people carry a social capital, which ensures their safety and success. Majority of the upper caste kids study in elite public schools while dalits study in unfit government schools. 93% of dalits live Below Poverty Line. The drop out of dalit students start at primary level itself because of extreme poverty, segregation in school, denial of access, huge distance of residence from school (dalits are forced to stay at outskirt of village) and violence and constant harassment of innocent dalit kids by higher caste teachers and students.

The extreme inequality in the country is such that the right wing government is unwilling to release caste data for fear of being exposed. The SC never take cognizance of caste atrocities and harassments that dalit routinely face. What action has it taken the biased judiciary decisions that lower judiciary regularly and routinely give against dalits? Giving such baseless opinion without examining ground reality is not only uncalled for but highly condemnable as well.

Two Dalits Murdered and Four Dalit Women Raped Everyday…Welcome to India!

Not a single day passes without us hearing a dalit atrocity somewhere or other in India. Recently two toddlers (less than two years) have been burnt alive and their parents were serious injured in Haryana when few upper caste people poured petrol on their house and set it afire when the victims were sleeping at night. In another incident a teenager dalit boy accused of stealing pigeon was brutally beaten up by Haryana police, succumbed to his injuries.

There is no end to dalit atrocities in India. In fact in past several years crime against dalits have increased manifold. A recently released data by National Crime Record Bureau clearly shows the savagery and cruelty of upper caste Indians. An unprecedented 47, 064 crimes were committed against dalits in 2014. It is noteworthy that the data compiled are only reported crime. The numbers will certainly go more than tenfold if non-registered crimes were included.

The data shows an average of two murders of dalits everyday and average of five rapes daily perpetrated on dalit women. Abduction and kidnapping of dalits are increasing every year. The crime against dalits is increasing under the current right wing government. Racial/hat crimes against African American in USA is far far less than crime against dalits. Further, incident of murders and rapes are very less in the hate crime in USA.

The international community has ignored the systematic killing of dalits and their human right violations that going on for centuries in India. India has able to effectively hide the misdeeds at home from international community. United Nations has done nothing to classify ‘caste crime’ in the same category of ‘race crime’ though the barbarity and hate element in caste crime is far more than the racial crime.

United Nations must summon India for its failure to protect dignity of dalits and the gross human right violations that perpetuated against them. The ruling people and majority of Hindus are apologists of worst order. They will never regret and prefer to keep their misdeeds under wraps. Unless international community take urgent step the dalits will continue to bear burnt of unimaginable atrocities even in this 21th century.

Police Strips Dalit Family Nude, Parades and Beat Them Up to Pulp

Things are worsening day by day for dalit in India. Recently two dalit youths have been lynched in Punjab for a trivial issue and an old man was burned alive in UP because he tried to enter a temple. Now the Manuwadi barbaric casteist savages have stripped and paraded a five members dalit family that include three female in full public view and the accused this time are none other than the protectors of law – the police. Reportedly they are beaten up as well.

This ghastly incident occurred in NOIDA – a satellite city of Delhi. It is alleged that the victim Sunil Gautam was robbed at night by 4/5 people on 7/10/15. The next day he along with his family members went to a nearby police station to register a FIR (First Information Report) against unknown robbers. The police refused for no reason. Following which the family members staged protest outside the police station. The heartless casteist station officer Praveen Yadav humiliated them by  stripping all the family members and beating them up badly in full public view. The victims also include few kids of the family.

Check the following snaps and video.

This is how they treat our dalit brethren!

What the press says?

As usual all the mainstream newspapers did not report the incident while a couple of Hindi dailies tried to blame the victims by giving it a color of naked protest. Naked protest never happens in India except the one by mothers of Manipur who protested against rape and atrocities of Assam Rifles. Stripping oneself in public is considered a very disgraceful act in India, let alone naked protest. Anyway check the pictures and video how the desperate hapless women trying to protect their modesty.

Showing power over hapless is actually cowardice

All the political parties and public intellectuals are silent because overwhelming majority of them are apologists. They always considered dalit problems to be minor. The UP government and police without conducting an enquiry blamed the victims instead.

The situations of dalits in India are several times worse than the blacks in Europe and America. The age old problem continues goes unabated. The Indian government has been able to successful hide the inexplicable atrocities from International Community. The harassment and atrocities on dalits are day to day occurrence and majority of them go unreported.

The noted social activist Arundhati Roy has coined the word “Project Unseen” to describe how state machinery including judiciary along with press regularly let the accused free whenever there is an atrocity on dalits. Recently a Cobrapost sting exposed with video graphic proof how the casteist Ranveer Sena with full support of some BJP leaders massacred dalits of an entire village in Bihar. No action has been taken either by government or judiciary.

My request to International Community

Being an educated dalit and extremely concerned person I appeal the international community to widely publicize the problems of dalits and pressurize the Indian government to bring the preparators of atrocities to book. The United Nations must classify the caste problem India in the same category as racism.

Why dalits are not fighting back? You might like to ask.

The oppression of dalits is very systematic. First, the dalit community is always less in number in a village setting. The entire upper castes gang up whenever a conflict arises between dalits and other caste. Second, they are very poor who lives from hands to mouth and thus have no economic/financial power to afford security for themselves or fight it out outside in police/court. Finally, majority of dalits have inferiority complex because of religion enforced caste system over centuries. They cannot think beyond caste and have accepted their subserviced position.

The only way for them to liberate themselves from this veritable chamber of torture called casteism/Hinduism is by rejecting the system and not by protesting within. This can be possible only when dalits acquire knowledge and economically empower themselves though it is a very tough task. As a responsible and concerned person, you have the responsibility of giving them a helping hand.
