Dalit Mahila Garima Yatra

All India Dalit Mahila Adhikar Manch

The violent nexus of caste and patriarchy has once again raised its hood in the form of increasing sexual violence against Dalit women in Haryana. Abused and broken, the survivors are still waiting for justice. The rest of India shamelessly continues to debate whether this is a caste issue? A gender issue? A moral issue? A chowmein issue? A political issue?

Clearly something has gone horribly wrong in our human consciousness if we as a country remain silent to such horrifying acts of violence committed against our young women.

While the legal battles and quest for justice will continue for the survivors and their families -­ All India Dalit Mahila Adhikar Manch with associates and friends have planned to organize a State level Karwan in Haryana to build pressure on authorities to enforce the law and protect Dalit women.

Dalit Mahila Garima Yatra will commence on Nov.1, 2012 in front of Dr. B.R Ambedkar statue in Panipat, Haryana.

[Prof Mungekar Committee Report on caste discrimination in Vardhman Mahavir Medical College, Delhi, P 18]

Dear Friends,

We all are aware of how the educational institutions have been discriminating the reserved category students, deliberately failing them in different subjects for years together. In recent past many such cases have been in highlight due to the strong resistance shown by the students against such discriminatory practices in their institutions like AIIMS, Vardhman Mahavir Medical College, MAMC, KGMC (Lucknow), IITs, JNU etc.

In all such cases, it is seen that most of the times our students are being repeatedly failed by just 1 or 2 marks in some specific subjects for years and thus breaking their morale and branding them as "inferior"/ "incapable" forever.

~

~

Students from Aligarh Muslim University, Delhi and SIO committee members are saying that UGC NET results of 2012 have forcibly denied JRF to eligible SC/ST/OBC students.

The cut-off marks for different categories in various subjects are revealing. In almost 14 subjects, the cut-off marks for OBCs are more than the cut-off marks for the General candidates, and the cut-off marks for SC/ST students in a couple of subjects are also higher than the cut-off for General Category students!
