Mirchpur Caste Atrocity: Sanity prevails as Supreme Court understands their pain!

31Jan11

Supreme Court on Monday took strong view of khap panchayat troubling dalits in Haryana and resorting to rasta roko agitation for withdrawal of cases against upper caste people in the Mirchpur village burning case. A conglomeration of 12 khap panchayats had blocked traffic for 11 days demanding release of accused in the Mirchpur case, whom they have termed innocent.

 On Aprill 21 last year, upper caste people had burnt down the dalit colony in the village in which a 70-year-old and his physically challenged daughter were charred to death.

 The apex issues notice to the state government and railways asking them to quantify the loss due to this agitation in two weeks and report to the court.

  1. 1 Rewrite Quran

    Why isn’t Govt issuing licensed pistols to SC/ST community?

    Why SC/ST Members of Parliament not moving a Bill in Parliament seeking Autonomy from India citing 1930 Round Table Conference resolution as reference?

    They’ll be 4th largest nation in the world.

  2. 2 Rewrite Quran

    Without ‘reservations’ in Supreme Court there is no ‘justice’ for BC/SC/ST communities in India
