We are very conscious of the discrimination faced by the Dalit community in the UK. We know how Dalit children are treated in schools by the upper castes. We have seen how Dalit workers get treated on the factory floor and denied promotion. Also in the Asian community we have witnessed the way Dalit families are welcomed and treated at weddings and birthday parties said Sarbjit Johal of South Asia Solidarity Group. She was speaking at the 125th birthday of the father of the Indian constitution and lifelong fighter of Dalit cause Dr B R Ambedkar at East Ham Town Hall conducted by Dr Ambedkar International foundation London .

Sarbjit Johal continued…We are aware of the injustices inflicted on Dalit women in India and their struggles for justice. In February 2016 in Bihar, an RJD MLA raped a Dalit minor school girl.  When the protesters demanded action against the rapist, the police came to attack the protesters. 

This April in Rajasthan a Dalit trainee teacher in a hostel was raped and murdered after a warden told her to go and clean the room of another teacher.

Now we hear about Jisha who was raped and murdered with multiple stabs and her body torn into bits in Kerala.

Why? Are Dalit Women the property of upper caste men to be used, abused and murdered? Are they not human beings with human rights? Don’t Dalit Women belong to themselves?

The Dalit community is at the forefront of struggling for Justice and Equality. Chintu Kumari is Phd Political philosophy student from Bihar where in 1996 there was a brutal massacre of Dalits by Ranvir Sena, the private army of Upper caste landlords. The survivors of that horrific massacre are still fighting for justice to this day. The Jawaharlal Nehru University management is refusing to give her a degree because they claim she has raised anti national slogans at an event where Afzal Guru’s sentence of the death penalty was discussed. https://twitter.com/kavita_krishnan/status/701363639182188545. In the UK your struggle to get the anti-caste discrimination law passed was a major inspiration to us all said Sarbjit Johal.
