Dalit family beaten up for accidentally touching hands of Brahmin man
AGRA: The curse of untouchability still have deep roots in the country, a truth which can be gauged from the fact, that an entire family of a dalit was beaten with sticks and kicked just because one of the family members accidentally touched the hands of a Brahmin man.
The incident was reported in the remote village of Kyuri village of Pinhat area on Friday afternoon, when a Valmiki family was engaged in a marriage ceremony.
According to Vineeta, a victim of the incident said, “My younger son Sonu had gone to a sweet shop owned by a Brahmin man named Anil Sharma. While giving the payment for the sweets, Sonu accidently touched the hand of Sharma, on which he got infuriated and thrashed my son.”
“When Sonu returned home with bruises, he narrated the entire event after which I along with group of women went to sweet shop to protest against the cruelty on mere touching the hand. Later, Anil along with some few more men came to our house and attacked us with wooden sticks. They didn’t spare even a pregnant women, who had come to attend marriage ceremony,” she claimed. “They kicked her womb after which our family members took her to hospital,” she alleged.
We have to remove the word “Dalit”/” Untouchables” etc from all the system…all are equal and provide reservation only for weaker section.
My appeal to all Hindus is to do away with all discrimination among ourselves. We are just one group – Hindus. Such discrimination only weakens Hindus and Hindu Dharma
this is what modi government has done for us. sent us back to stone age
this is the true reason dalits get converted
Why don’t we find any instance of a Brahman touching (defiling) a dalit and punished for that crime? Why always the dalits are at the receiving end?
Brahmins are real terrorist for Dalits
These type of morons who bring bad name to Brahmin community should be hanged
Deeply shocked and saddened by reading this, I can’t believe people still having such mindsets.
What a shame!!!! These criminals should be punished as per law
Brahmins have been discriminating against the lower caste since ages. It is high time, the govt puts these guys in the OBC category…
It is an inhuman act.Highly condemnable.
