By Cathy Breen

My thoughts go to the recent perilous journey of a close Iraqi friend (I will call him Mohammed) and his son (whom I will call Omar). Already the survivor of an assassination attempt, this trusted translator, driver, guide and confidant received a death threat on his gate in early August.

The question is how to uphold the values of Indian Constitution in the current times?

On 10th October, 2015, a Jan Adhikar Rally organised by National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM), RSD and Jan Haq Manch was stopped in 9 villages and dalits who supported the rally were asked to pay a fine of Rs. 50,000 by the Panchayat in the village Lakhsyar. Savarnas of 9 villages had promised Dalits that they will be allowed in temples and would not be discriminated against. But when a young Dalit woman, Babli accompanied by Dinesh from Kanauta and Tarachand from Singota tried to enter Mahasu temple in Lakhsyar, they were pushed away. When Babli spoke about the panchayat decision, Maali Digpal Singh Tomar attacked her with a sharp weapon and Maali Shurvir Singh attacked her with kicks and punches. Similarly, Dinesh and Tarachand were attacked. Dalits present on the site admitted the injured in Vikasnagar Government Hospital
