MHRD's Trail of Letters Hounding Dalit Students of UoH

 

Round Table India

How does Brahmanism operate seamlessly across institutions, political organizations, political parties and the Govt. ministry to hound research students from Dalit communities? How do they work together to manufacture fake 'anti-national' narratives to execute social boycott on Dalit students?

To get a glimpse of the above processes, please read the trail of letters to University of Hyderabad (UoH) from members of ABVP, BJP and MHRD officials, leading to the social boycott and ostracization of 5 Dalit research scholars: 

1) Letter dated 10th August, 2015, to Bandaru Dattatreya written by Nandanam Diwakar Vice President, BJP, Hyderabad. 

2) Letter dated 17th August, 2015, from Bandaru Dattatreya, MoS, to Smriti Irani, MHRD, detailing his idea of 'Anti-national activities' of ASA. 

3) Letter dated 3rd September, 2015 from the Under Secretary referring to comments by Bandaru Dattatreya, Mos, for Labor and Employment.
