    ये कैसा हिन्‍दु आतंकवाद है जो गरीब व मासूम दलितों से जीने का हक व आजादी छीनना चाहता है। भारतीय मीडिया की एक बहुत बडी जिम्‍मेदारी सामाजिक असमानता के विरूद्व लिखने की भी है पर वह मौन है। कोई कहता है कि ये जाति आधारित कुंठित व कुत्सित मानसिकता या मनुवादी सोच का नतीजा नहीं वरन आपसी रंजिश का मामला है। यदि ऐसा है तो क्‍यों दलितों के ही घर जलाये जाते हैं, क्‍यों दलितों के ही बच्‍चे जलाए जाते हैं, क्‍यों दलित महिलाओं को ही निशाना बनाया जाता है। आखिर कभी दलितों द्वारा तथाकथित सवर्णों के घरों को, बच्‍चों को जलाने और उनकी महिलाओं को बेइज्‍जत करने की घटनाएं क्‍यों नहीं सुनने को मिलती। इस देश के दलित तबके की मानवीयता, महानता व सहनशीलता काबिले तारीफ है कि वे तथाकथित सवर्णों अथवा उंची जाति के लोगों से उनके जीने का हक नहीं छीनते, उनके बच्‍चों को नहीं जलाते या उनकी महिलाओं को बेइज्‍जत नहीं करते। क्‍या भारतीय समाज इनका ऋणी नहीं है।
