Dalit brothers Stone-Pelted for clearing IIT exam!


Despite cracking what is deemed one of the toughest exams in the world, or perhaps because of it, two brothers from Uttar Pradesh are battling casteist stigma in their village. Raju and Brijesh Saroj, sons of a daily wage worker Dharamraj, are among the top 500 scorers in the competitive entrance examination for the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). Even though top political leaders have pledged financial support to these teenagers, they returned to their village in Rehua Lalganj, Pratapgarh, only to have stones pelted at them. Source – Huffington Post

It is such a shameful act that need to be condemned. No matter Dalits reach at the top positions they still face the caste discrimination. This is the reality of the Hindu caste system. An illiterate son of Brahmin is valued and respected more than well educated Dalit. These are the reasons that Dr. Ambedkar said, Hinduism is mental sickness and there is no hope of reform and that’s the reason that Dr. Ambedkar left Hinduism.

Dalits are discouraged to educate in India. It is shameful but true and is happening since ages. Will it change ever?

Check out from below, how Dalits are killed and discouraged from getting proper education.

Jai Bheem is banned but Chhota Bheem isn’t!


It is really sorry state of the country where Dalits are killed for having Dr. Ambedkar ringtones and study groups named after Dr. Ambedkar are banned for raising voices against caste discrimination. On the other hand, serials or movies like Chhota Bheem are propagated in so-called elite colleges and universities. One cartoonist depicted this nicely. These universities are spreading superstitions and fiction. On the one hand governments are trying to bring anti-superstitions law but on the same time, universities like IITs are banning any rational thinking group. Are these really so-called technical universities?

Manuwadi Vivekananda and Vande Mataram Study Circle at IIT Madras are OK but Ambedkar Periyar Student Circle is Banned! Banned for speaking against superstitions and raising voice against caste based discrimination.

Caste Based Discrimination at IITs and all other higher education institutions is common in India. Shame on IIT administration and MHRD.

Ambedkar Periyar Student Circle at IIT Madras is Banned.

Shame on this Modi Government’s Ministry of HR and IIT Madras administration for banning  a student group – Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle. This is absolute misuse of power by the Sanghis and attack on fundamental right of freedom of expression and free speech. These buggers know the power of ideology of Dr Ambedkar and Periyar which is the only ideological force in India that can challenge them socially, culturally and politically.

Documentary: The Death of Merit – Manish Kumar (IIT Roorkee)


When a student from the lowest strata of society fights against all odds to prove her merit and reach the best educational institutions in India, are those institutions proving themselves meritorious enough to recognize her worth, to accommodate, let alone nurture her aspirations?

When a Dalit or Adivasi student becomes an engineer, doctor, business graduate or scientist, it should be a cause of pride for not just the family or the community but for the entire nation. Instead, why do our nation and its educational institutions reward their merit with discrimination, humiliation, violence and death?

This documentary is third in the series of our efforts to document caste-based discrimination prevalent in Indian higher education system resulting in large number of suicides of Dalit students in the Indian campuses.

Manish Kumar Guddolian, 20 years of age, was pursuing his IInd year, Integrated Dual Degree Programme, Department of Computer Science & Information Technology, at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee.

The only son of a Junior Warrant Officer at Indian Air Force, Manish committed ‘suicide’ by jumping off from 5th floor of his hostel on 6th February, 2011.

The documentary is based on the testimonies of Manish’s parents and other family members who have yet to come in terms with his death and are fighting against the collective might of IIT Roorkee and Roorkee Police that, as usual, want to relegate their child’s death to ‘a weak student getting depressed for not able to cope up with rigorous academic environment of highly competitive IITs’ .

However the truth is Manish committed suicide, unable to bear the constant castetist assaults and abuses by his own batch-mates, criminal attitude of his hostel warden and IIT Administration that instead of acting on his complaints forced him to live outside IIT Roorkee, and perhaps also due to the complete shattering of his faith on IIT Administration that was supposed to treat all its students as equals and without using caste-lenses.
