In BJP ruled Rajasthan, Dalit girl Delta Meghwal raped and murdered in an educational institute #JusticeForDeltaMeghwal


Delta was a 17 years old Dalit girl from a village near the Pakistan border in Barmer district of Rajasthan. She was persuading her BSTC (a course afert 10+2, to become a school teacher) from Jain Adarsh teacher training institute for girls in Nokha, Bikaner (Rajasthan).

Her prize winning artwork

She was a brilliant student and an amazing painter, having topped in an Art competition in whole of Rajasthan when she was in 12th standard. One of her artwork was featured in an art magazine published by Rajasthan secretariat in 2006, when she was just 7 years old.

On the morning of March 29, her dead body was found in the water tank of her hostel under suspicious conditions. Police took her body in a municipal garbage carrying vehicle (tractor) without videographing it. According to institution, she committed suicide because they caught her in PT teacher Vijendra Kumar’s room, and they had warned both and asked them to write an apology.
Now the question is, why did the Institution not inform her parents? Why did the Institute not sack the PT teacher and file a complaint against him as she was a minor?

Getting prize from Home Minister, Rajasthan

According to the FIR filed by her parents, there were only 4 girls at the hostel as all the other girls had gone home and had not returned by then. She came back along with her father on the morning of 28th. Later in the evening, at 8 pm, she called her father and said that their Warden Priya Shukla had sent her to the PT Instructor’s room, to be his helper, with the excuse of cleaning the hostel. There she was raped by him. She seemed very scared while narrating the incident, according to her parents. When her parents got all the information of this incident, the Institute took written apology from both her and the PT Instructor with a statement that this happened with mutual consent. While her parents say that this is murder, as the institute neither sacked the PT Instructor nor informed them, being ignorant of the fact that she was a minor. According to them, to downplay the incident, the Institute murdered her as they are very influential people.

Anti-Reservation remarks by Chairman of Motilal Oswal Group. File a complaint under SC/ST Act


Mr. Motilal Oswal, chairman of Motilal Oswal Group made anti-reservation remarks on twitter. Someone please file a case against Mr Motilal Oswal under SC/ST act for this tweet. Let him have a taste his ‘talent’. So called upper castes like him can become chairman of any company because of their caste not because of ‘talent’. Following tweet was posted by Motilal Oswal, chairman of Motilal Oswal Group, and was later deleted by him.

12936525_990239784385463_8479596338097832107_nMr Motilal Oswal, representation is a constitutional right and don’t compare it with begging of brahmins who are living on begging since ages. 

Mr Motilal Oswal has written in his description at Twitter – “proud of our values and culture”, “loves to spread positivity & happiness in a negative &cynical world” and here is the example of all that. Is this the company’s proud culture where SC/ST/OBC communities are defamed? Further he has written in his description, “Hungry for knowledge” and I would suggest him to read the history of your forefathers and the history of representation in India. Also, read some good books written by some good authors not by “chaddiwalas”!

Mr Motilal Oswal for your clarification, the bridge was being built by IVRCL, which is a private company owned by Reddy brothers, means upper castes company and there is no reservation in private sector as you may know very well. So, doesn’t bridge falling show upper castes merit? And this is not the first time this upper castes company IVRCL’s construction has failed, earlier in Jharkhand also their construction had failed. So, how much talent and merit upper caste companies want to show?? Further, Mr Motilal Oswal, whole India saw your talent (of fooling people) also when company was involvement in a series of IPO irregularities in 2003-05.

Earlier, Havells Fans had shown its castiest nature and now Motilal Oswal Group. We should boycott these companies and their products and services. What is the Merit of those upper caste Brahmins who dupe our Banks worth thousands of Crores & then flee the country? Mr Motilal Oswal should be booked under SC/ST act and should be punished for hatred towards Dalits and minority communities.

Update –

Mr Motilal Oswal deleted the tweet and posted the following message. It’s too late for the Motilal Oswal Group to hide its casteist nature and casteist mindset. We must go forward and file case against him so that no one else tries to defame Dalits & other communities availing constitution rights.

motilal

All this shows the casteist mindset of private companies in India. Even if I accept that it was “forwarded sms”, does it mean he didn’t read it before forwarding? He opened twitter and pasted that “forwarded sms” but didn’t read it? Whom you are trying to fool Mr. Motilal Oswal?

How can anyone trust such a chairman of financial company who doesn’t read before forwarding the information? Wonder how Motilal Oswal Group has survived till now, oh am I forgetting “Vyapam Merit” of upper castes? Motilal Oswal Group is an investment management group and such are the chairman who don’t read information before sharing it. I would suggest investors to back out from Motilal Oswal Group or be ready to lose money in the hands of such “Vyapam Meritwalas” upper castes!

Vice Chancellor of Hyderabad, Appa Rao, who is responsible for the death of Rohith Vemula again joined the university as VC and when students were protesting this and were demanding justice for Rohith, Police did beat students at University of Hyderabad! Such a shameful act.

Manu Smriti Irani, your ‘children’ have been attacked by police and are without food, water and electricity at Hyderabad university.

Which mother will let her children without food?

Brahmins’ Job Portal – Only for Brahmins! Others need not to apply


Brahmins have infected every space in India with caste discrimination and Brahminism. They have made separate foods – especially for Brahmins, and there already is caste discrimination in private job sector.

As per the website, brahminexpert,  it is dedicated private job exchange run by Brahmin welfare organisation for the unemployed Brahmin community and it is run by Tamil Nadu Telugu Brahmana Saba Trust.

We have seen, such organisations and so called upper castes having links in private companies don’t give any chance to Dalit-Bahujans in jobs at private companies. When these so called upper castes have links and family members in private companies there is no way they will give opportunity to lower castes. This is the reason manuwadi governments are privatizing everything so that they don’t have to implement reservation and upper castes will keep on enjoying!

We demand reservation in private sector and we strongly object privatization.

Institutional murder of Dalit engineering student Ajith Kumar


Ajith Kumar (21) was studying second year B.E civil engineering in St.Joseph college of engineering, Pennalur village, Kanchipuram dist. He was the youngest son of Gnanamani (56) a daily wage laborer from Allur village, Sethiyathopu post, Cuddalore district. Ajith was staying in the St.Zavier men’s hostel inside the college campus. He was 200 kms away near Chennai from his native village.

1930423_10207805216480687_7152449444912643804_nOn 1.3.16 Ajith’s father Gnanamani received a phone call from the college management who complained about his son and asked him to take his son from the college. The next day Gnanamani visited the college along with his elder son Gunasekaran. The college management comprising the principal and two college administrators discussed the issue with them and asked to take Ajith out of college or pay a fine of Rs.5000. Initially Gnanamani protested that an investigation shouldn’t be done without his son present in the room. Later he accepted to pay the fine and asked for a week’s time since he couldn’t get the money immediately.

On the same day Gnanamani met his son Ajith in the hostel and enquired the complaint on him. Ajith informed that he haven’t done anything wrong and punished just for questioning the quality of food in hostel mess with the management. The father advised his son that these issues with food are normal in hostels and he need to adapt to them.

After few days Gnanamani received a call from his son Ajith, who said that he is afraid and the college management mainly administrator Fr. Jude are abusing him verbally in the classroom. Fr. Jude told Ajith ‘You Paraiyars are useless. You dogs are studying free of cost. Even if you get free education you still complain about rice and sambar? You should get lost and die’. Gnanamani asked his son to come home and he too responded positively. This whole abuse happened in front of the students inside the classroom and it was happening daily since his father visited the college. Fr. Jude is said to be always inspecting the hostel rooms, beating the students with mobile or laptop charger during those visits, abuse students verbally in classrooms and hostels.

On Feb 10 Vinoth Kumar, a computer science student was suspended by the college management. Vinoth was dragged out of the hostel and beaten up by Fr. Jude before sending him out for suspension. The other students were concerned and tried to report these violent behavior of Fr. Jude to the principal. When Fr. Jude found them standing outside principal’s office they were immediately suspended for 15 days. Ajith Kumar was one among the nine got suspended. Everyone was thrown out of the college & hostel. Ajith spent his suspension at home and came back. Initially he was denied entry into hostel and the casteist abuses started from that time.
