Protest against Dadri lynching

Protest against Dadri lynching

A few progressive and like-minded persons on Wednesday evening staged a protest in front of the Town Hall condemning the recent atrocities against dalits and minorities in Uttar Pradesh.

The protesters included writers, advocates, scribes and people from other walks of life.
They condemned the lynching of a man in Uttar Pradesh and demanded the government not to pass any legislation affecting food culture of any religious or ethnic groups.

The death of Mohammed Akhlaq in Dadri’s Bisada village in Uttar Pradesh after a mob attacked him and his son Danish over rumours that they ate beef is barbaric and inhuman act, they charged.

They alleged that the number of atrocities against the dalits was increasing ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi took charge.

A 90-year-old dalit, who was attempting to enter a temple, was dragged out and beaten to death. The Central government has failed to ensure protection to dalits and women, they alleged.

They urged Prime Minister Modi to implement schemes that protect the interests of minorities and dalits.
