Nation opts Caste-less Mind or Abuse-less Talks ?

02Dec11

A man was today sentenced to six- month imprisonment by a local court for abusing a youth in name of caste. Additional Sessions Judge A A Sayeed also imposed a fine of Rs 1,000 on the convict, Suresh R Sonigra (40), a local estate agent. He was found guilty of passing casteist remark against the 24-year-old youth, who worked as a delivery boy with a gas agency in Bhayander, a township in Thane district. Sonigra was convicted under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 and Protection of Civil Rights Act. PTI COR

    The Prevention of Atrocities Act only talks about the insult/humiliation of an individual SC/ST. Punishment should be double if a Non SC/ST abuses/humiliates the caste as a whole.
