Law was not that strict in the past.Recently the word " Dalit" has been seen as someone being abused and rightly so why people comment on people.
I have observed people do discriminate, they may not utter a word but definetly see them differently.
Recently a FIR has been lodged where a "Dalit" girl attempted suicide by consuming poison. As per her two professors of the college were harassing her and making castiest remarks. She uploaded a video of the same on Facebook thats how the case was highlighted and the professors were caught.
Now what comes in my mind, how shameful it is that schools and colleges where we are taught that we all are equal there too such things are happening.
Secondly as this case is related to castism so is highlighted. If she were a common girl, it might not have been highlighted that much. What do you say? Is media not highlighting such case and provoking people?
