Gevrai: Festive butchering of Dalits
In a Brahmin stronghold Tahsil of Gevrai in Beed District the atrocities on Dalits are piling up as always. This time the festivals of Bulls (POLA) brings death penalty to some. No doubt deaths are not from upper-castes but from helpless poor Dalits at the hands of former. Soon after the killings, Police stations are terrorized with Political pressure.
In a Village named Malas-Pimpalgaon, a Dalit was summarily butchered by Upper-caste men when he refused to obey the dictates . The Hindu rule is that Matangs (Dalit caste) should not dare beat drums during festivals. Minding his rights, Laxman Aher , a brave soldier wedged a war against the caste dictates and beat the drums by which he only invited the Caste ire . Later he was targetted and mercilessly beaten to death by the upper castes crowd.
Such a Brahman populated area adorns more shame when a Matang minor was raped by group of upper caste men in Rajni village close to Malas-Pimpalgaon in the same Tahsil. Even the case was not registered by the victims due to the fear from upper caste forces. Neither Police came forward to take the stock of the situation fearing backlash.
Also Police is silent which is the least they can offer to convince their political dog heads.
However the civil society in the region does not sleep into silence, having noticed the incidents CHR (Campaign for Human Rights) has decided to protest thru People March on 30th August on Police station.
The March will be joined by Manisha Tokale, Subhash Nade, KAilas Veer, Motiram Bade, Santosh JAdhav, Baburao Ghule, Kalyan Naktode, Alka Naktde, Asha Pawar, Archana Waghmare, Meena Lokhande and others
