Rampant casteism in Odisha: Dalits thrown out of the village

February 3; Bargarh, Odisha
In the month of July last year, three dalit families were thrown out of their house in Deultunda village. The mob, which chased them out of the village, mostly consisting of ‘upper-caste’ Hindus, also vandalised whatever little possessions they had. “They were drunk and chased us with knives,” recounted Amar Pandey, one of the victims, talking to Community Correspondent Saroj Suna a day after the incident. Caste-based conflicts remain a reality in most of India. But while the recent events of vandalising Churches in New Delhi are heavily discussed, these incidents of discrimination in rural parts remain largely obscure. In the coming days, CC Saroj will be trying to get these people rehabilitated in their village with compensation. We will follow up with the Impact soon.
