In another incident of gruesome atrocity against Dalits in Gujarat’s, four Dalit youths were beaten up with leather belts and iron roads, and dragged for almost a kilometre, allegedly because they “possessed” cow beef. The incident took place in Una town of Saurashtra region in Gujarat.
The Dalits youth belong to a village called Mota Samdiyara village. They were reportedly called by a community of leather traders of nearby village to collect a dead cow. Before the Dalit youth could reach the place to collect, they wre cornered by so-called upper caste Gau Rakshak group at the Una bus stand. The boys were strippd half naked, tied to an SUV and beaten up in iron roads in full public view. A large crowd gathered there but no one came forward to rescue.
The group which cornered the Dalit youth claimed to be working for the cause of cow protection (Gau Rakshya). The members of the group actually belong to a political outfit called Shiv Sena. The Dalit boys were mercilessly beaten up for over half an hour, and then dragged by chain to a police station nearby. The police did not nab the accused when they dragged the victims to police station. Following the news going viral, the police arrested two of the accused as an eye wash.
India is a country of hypocrites and cowards of highest order. The recent emergence of Gau Rakshak (cow vigilante groups) is attributed to communal politics of ruling BJP government. On one hand the Indian state advocates cow protection on the other hand it promotes cow slaughter in slaughter houses. India recently ranked number one for beef export in the world. Surprisingly, the exporters are none other than so-called upper caste Hindus, especially the Brahmin and Baniya community. The insensitive media branding the youths as cow smugglers.
95% of beef exporters are so-called upper caste Hindus, who use Islamic name to name their companies and thereby giving a false impression. Consider the names of following beef exporting companies and their owner names:
Al-Kabeer Exports Pvt. Ltd.
Its owner name: Mr. Shatish &Mr. Atul Sabharwal
Add: 92, Jolly makers, Chembur Mumbai 400021
Arabian Exports Pvt.Ltd. Owner’s name: Mr.Sunil Kapoor Add: Russian Mansions, Overseas, Mumbai 400001
The Shiv Sena, whose members, beat up the dalit youth is a right wing extremist political organization. Recently one of its prominent members found to be running a big sex racket in Maharashtra. They are well known for communalism and goondaism in India.
International organizations including United Nations are not taking seriously the Dalit atrocities in India that routinely happening. Dalits are suffering in the hand of barbarian upper castes for centuries. The casteism issue is many times more deadlier than racism.
According to National Crime Record Bureau Statistics, 2014, every day 2 dalits are murdered, 4 Dalits women raped and 2 are killed daily. What is more the crime against Dalits are increasing over last few years. The world most takes stock of the issue and takes steps to help the unfortunate community.
