Why It's Different When Dalit Women Are Raped

A 19-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped and savagely murdered by men of a higher caste in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh. In this Dalit Camera: Through Un-Touchable Eyes interview from 2013, award-winning professor Sukhadeo Thorat explains why Dalit women are sometimes specifically targeted for sexual violence.

    These higher class societies have no fundamental rights to rape the Dilit Girl, the Prime Minister should intervene into the matter and do the needful to enable Dalit girl gets justice she deserves, otherwise great shame for the world largest democratic country; police officers should be sacked immediately and 4 rappers/culprits should be hanged in broadday light.

    अजीब मानसिकता है। दलितों के हाथ का पानी पी नहीं सकते।पर उनकी महिलाओं के साथ सो सकते हैं।🤨

    Actually these high caste men with low standard of character want to marry dalit girls. But they're not fit to marry them I think, that's why they do such things. Murderers, children of-_-----.

    The very first statment is they want to hurt Dalit.. so they hurt Dalit women I lost my interest there only.. Since u "don't believe" in caste system. Then how can u justify this. N if u have understanding for them . Then where is your understanding when muslims hurts n hindus suffer .. at that time u close your eyes n ears.. If u had shown me something like this woman has been hurt i would have understood.

    It's high time I diana move on from the crap of lower caste higher caste. Gods sake all are humans. People use this as an advantage to demand some people whereas some people use it to advantage to get jobs and free schooling. This nonsense has to stop and the society needs to move on to a better living relationship with each other. No woman deserves to be raped and no man has the right to humiliate a woman or a female for that matter. Let's support this and eradicate the caste system.

    But the problem is you cry more when a brahmin girl is raped and keep silence when more cruel thing happens to a dalit girl.we fight only for the reason that dalit girls are also human beings. Dalit lives count.

    I have a question for everyone who believes in caste system, please define every caste and their meaning ? I would like to learn how this actually works. My parents never taught me To be superior or inferior to anyone, I was raised to be equal to all humans, but its a kind request from humble people reading my post to elaborate my knowledge.
