News (May 16, 2015): HORRIFYING AND PAINFUL CASTE VIOLENCE IN RAJASTHAN

News (May 16, 2015): HORRIFYING AND PAINFUL CASTE VIOLENCE IN RAJASTHAN

“In a shocking incidence of caste violence in Rajasthan's Nagaur district, the dominant Jat community allegedly mowed down 3 Dalits by tractors following a long pending land dispute. The violence was triggered after a popular member of the Jat community was killed in firing by Dalits in Dangwas village. Scores were injured in the clash and thousands of Dalits have fled from neighbouring villages to save their lives.

The administration has deployed heavy police force to enable funeral of those killed and restore peace in the area but no arrests have been made so far. As per reports, horrific crimes were also committed against dalit women, including molestation and beating. Some have also complained of attempts of disrobing.”


VIEWPOINT

This gory incidence makes our heads hang in shame. This happening in the country is the result of “Vote politics” which our so called leaders vouch very strongly to keep the society divided for fulfilling their nefarious goals. Election agenda of our political parties is based on wooing only cluster of people (Vote bank) rather than taking nation forward. This is the reason that all our text books right at the primary level sow the seed of division by teaching us the divisive policies of Britishers. Our books nowhere warn us that we as Indians were greatest fools who got divided and Britishers kept exploiting us. The failure of “Gadar” of 1857 was the result of this foolishness of us Indians.

Same exploitative practice is followed in letter & spirit by our so called leaders who claim to have given us freedom from foreign rule. Hence we continue to suffer in our own country.

It is high time we as Indians must rise to the occasion and real need of the hour to abandon the practice of division on the basis of caste, religion, region and language. Let us be Indians first than anything else.

Our national goal must be “Affirmative action”. IT IS TIME TO LEARN. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
