Dear friends,The AAF is closely observing the injustices to the SCs and STs
You are aware that ,in Judiciary,the collegium system was in existence for selecting Advocates for elevation as Judges for the high court and Supreme Court .
Recently ,the collegium has cleared (3) three panels from both the States and they were appointed as Judges for both the High courts.In these (3) panels,no Scheduled Caste or scheduled Tribe advocate from the bar was elevated.In all these (3) three panels less than 5 percent of the population of
forward class advocates were elevated.Kindly note that ,the
Government of India considered necessary for transparency and accountability in appointments of judges and amended ,and brought Article 124 A by 99th Constitutional amendment by constituting “National Judicial Appointments Commission” (NJAC).This amendment was struck down by the Supreme Court and the collegium system is in operation.
Mr .John Brittas ,MP .Rajya Sabha raised this issue in the parliament that “No diversity in Judiciary,collegium system distorting Judicial Independence.He further said Judiciary is dominated by upper castes of the society “.
Mr Kiren Rijiju ji ,the Hon’ble Minister for Law and Justice said in the parliament that “we have been stressing time and again, that ,while recommending names preference may be given to women ,backward class ,scheduled castes and scheduled tribes “
Inspite of the above,even after 75 years of independence the weaker sections of the society particularly the SC&STs are being deprived and discriminated in appointments of judges in higher judiciary and are not getting proportionate representation.
It’s not in dispute that the Chief Justices and their colleagues are non-elected and non-accountable.
It may be welcoming feature ,if the selection is initiated by an independent body like Judicial Commission ,which may be accountable
In US ,the appointment of judges through recommendation by the president and confirmation by the Senate on the basis of territorial representation.In Australia, the appointments are by nomination .In Canada ,the appointments to the Supreme Court are made by giving regional/territorial representations .In United Kingdom and Ireland ,by the Chancellor .May be ,its not working out satisfactorily.
The executive, is totally for all practically purposes is sidelined in our Democracy.
The Present strategy of High Level committee of AAF is that to go to people through “Jai beem Radha Yatra “for inviting valuable suggestions and trying to identify and to place on record the injustices before legislature ,executive and particularly in judiciary and to make a request to the respective Excutive authorities to follow the Democratic values as per the Indian constitution and provide proportionate effective representation to SCs&STs for Social justice and Economic Empowerment in all the three wings of the Democracy.

Caste atrocity in Lathor, Bolangir district of Odisha. More than 50 houses are burnt by upper castes on 22/1/12.
A small boy’s incident took the shape of caste violence in Lathor, Balangir district of Odisha. The incident started at 3.00pm at lathor ,a 9th class dalit boy Ganesh Suna used to wear 2shirts every day but today he wear only a shirt, but he went to purchase a shirt and wear it over that shirt, but shopkeepers Bharat Meher and his brother Daya Meher , called him back and accused him as a thief and beat him . When the boy was returning to home helplessly at that time he met to an old man Gouranga Suna and told about the incident and by responding to the shopkeeper s the old man told that why do you beat him? If he has stolen the shirt we can pay the money for that but you should not had to beaten him, but, the shopkeepers did not listen him and beat to the old man (Gouranga Suna) too by their foot wears. Then the old man reported to his family members, and then 4/5 youth from Dalit community went to the shop and fought with them. This is the fact matter occurred at the beginning of the incident and in this way feeling of hatred created between dalit (Asavarna) and upper caste (Savarna), and upper caste take the advantage of being majority heavy over the dalit minority.
By taking the advantage of the situation, the upper castes reaction to this incident and attacked by their weapons, stick, and muscles power and fought against Dalits. Because Dalit were minority in number so they could not face the violent force of upper castes mob. So Dalit tried to save them from this brutal violence and run way from their home. Some dalit men went to the forest, some went to the nearest villages and the women saved themselves in other untouchable Ghasia Vasti (Scavenger) and saved their life. In this way the upper castes created fear among dalit.
Even the violent upper castes people looted gold ornaments and expensive materials. They burnt all the certificates of the students and other kind of valuables documents. At the same time they abused to all dalit women with derogatory language. Even the upper caste trader people like Marwadi Agrawal distributed liquor and petrol freely to ruin the dalit houses. Meanwhile some dalit tried to register an affair in the Lathor police station but police refuse to register the case and unable to handle the catastrophic situation. The Incident became very serious goes up to a level where no one able stops the upper castes; even they beat to a local news reporter of Kanak TV and threatened to The Dharitri reporter Bhubaneswar Barik . By marching they blocked all the road communication facilities and burnt tyre on the road and dug the road by which communication can be stopped towards Lathor.
The burning goes up to more than 6th hour according to OTV news channel but fact is that it’s more than 6 hour from the dalit people report and eyes witness. The Upper castes mob fearlessly attacked to fire brigade and brunt their vehicle so that the fire could not stop and they can burn all the houses. Since, nobody has courage to off the burning so everything changed in to ashes. From the current report there are no single commodities and food grains which are left out for their uses until the case is registered and fire brigade stop the fire. Police reached there at mid night and tried to protect the victimized dalit people.
On the 23 January, in the morning police high authority DIG reached to the spot with another battalion and ordered the fire brigade commandos to stop the fire. When fire was stopped at that time there was nothing which can be collected for their use. Then after the government following the case, in the late morning at 10 or 11 am the administrative officers Tahasildar and BDO reached to investigate the incident. The officers took the homeless dalit in to a Govt School and provided some kind of relief and distributed some Biscuits, Shawls and Chuda. The distributed things are useless which cannot be eaten which are low in quality. The rehabilitation programme taken by government is insufficient. And all homeless dalit accommodate in a Govt school of the particular village. The victimized and homeless dalit people need proper rehabilitation, adequate help and emotional support.
Dalit are lost their houses, property, wealth, clothes bikes, books and they are hopeless and homeless. More than 4 crores wealth has been lost. Whole Dalit Vasti is being burnt, where more than 50 fifty families were living, there is nothing to collect from the home, and they lost everything. The children women and men are displaced from the home. The rehabilitation programme which is taken by the government is insufficient; all the people are rehabilitated in a government school. Imagine the situation is very pathetic, people are crying, such a brutal attacked by the caste Hindu nobody can think on the issue even Police and administration are unable to give justice.
From TV report the Odisha Chief Minister declared to give 1 lakhs to each victimized family as compensation.
These are the victimized dalit families:
|SL NO||Name of the Victims||Male No||Female No||Boy Age under 14||Girl Age under 14|
This is a fact data we collected by the reasonable resources. There are more victimized people whose name is to be enlisted.
These are the picture from the incident which speaks about the caste violence and burnt houses.
1- The burnt materials are thrown out from the home-
These are the burnt and broken buildings.
Documents, utensils and houses are destroyed. More than 4 crores of property have been lost.
The helpless women and innocent children are in the Govt School (relief camp).
These are the up dated news many more facts and details are yet to come……

PETITION FILED U/S 12 OF THE PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS ACT 1993
I, B.Karthik Navayan, Programme Officer, National Dalit Forum wants to bring to your kind notice about the Brutal attack, sexual abuse on six Dalit women, gross violation of human rights. And Inaction of Police and administration
On 09/12/2011, Friday, an upper caste mob brutally attacked Six Dalit Women namely 1) Smt Manju Devi, w/o Satan Sada, 2) Smt Dulari Devi w/o Kainu Sada; 3) Smt Parodevi w/o Ramnath Sada, 4) Smt Pabiya Devi w/o Tarani Sada 5) Smt Reshma Devi w/o Wakil Sada 6) Geetha Devi w/o Dinesh Sada. All are belongs to Nararia village of Khagaria district in Bihar
The accused mob 1) Saroj Singh s/o Promod Singh 2) Anoj Singh s/o Promod Singh 3) Manoj Singh s/o Promod Singh 4) Dharmendra Singh s/o Promod Singh 5) Promod Singh s/o Uchit Singh 6) Uchit Singh s/o Ramswaroop Singh7) Wakil Singh s/o Maheshwar Singh 8) Kailas Singh s/o Maheshwar Singh 9) Maheshwar Singh s/o Sukhdev Singh, all belongs to Chatar Village of Khagaria District in Bihar
All the accused went to the farm of dalit women Manju Devi on 09/12/2011 at 9 AM, to encroach it illegally, and started destroying it. When she came to know, she along with her above said neighbor women went to the farm and tried to stop the mob that started destroying the farm
The accused mob circled the 6 dalit women and abused them in filthy language, on the name of their caste and attacked them by lathi danda and guns. All the 6 dalit women shocked and asked them why they are destroying the farm. The irritated mob had beaten all the women. Due to this two women went unconscious. One woman Dulari Devi’s both hands fractured, they also snatched the gold rings worth of 15000/- (Fifteen Thousand Rupees)
Satan Sada the husband of Manju Devi reached the place and requested for compromise. The accused mercilessly looted Rs 10000/-(Ten Thousand) from him at gun point. The accused number 1, Saroj Singh fired a bullet on Satan Sada, fortunately it missed
The Accused 2 Anoj Singh and Accused 3 Manoj Singh both sexually harassed Pabiya Devi and Parodevi; they removed Sarees and blouses of both dalit women and paraded nakedly. And they spit in the mouths of dalit women. Now all the victims admitted in the Sadar Hospital in Khagaria.
The victims lodged a complaint in the Morkahi Police Station; FIR is registered number 80/2011 under section 147, 148, 149, 342, 323, 325, 504 of Indian penal code and Section 3 (i) (ii) (iii), (iv), (x), (xi) of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1987. The station house officer Sathyendra Kumar took up the investigation
Even after 27 days of incident, neither an inquiry is conducted nor the accused arrested by the police, due to the political influence of the Accused. And meanwhile the accused regularly calling and sending mediators to victims and threatening to withdraw the complaint by saying that “police and other government officials not going to help the victims, nothing will happen to accused” police only serve the rich people not poor like you”.
I request your kind authority to direct the police to conduct inquiry and arrest the accused immediately, also request you to direct the district government authority to visit the victims and provide the necessary health facilities and compensation
The Dalits in this locality are feeling panic after this brutal attack on the dalit women so I further request National Human Rights Commission to visit the Nararia village of Khagaria district in Bihar. And conduct an inquiry in this case, to give moral support to the victims and local dalits

What is an NGO
About 4 years back one of my colleague told me this funny story, it will not suit to all the NGOs but is similar to the activities of an NGO called “Indian against Corruption”
A urban educated man approached a rural shepherd and asked
Urban Educated: “Hey man I will tell you, how many sheep you have with all details male, female, and age. What you will give me?
The Shepherd: How can you tell? You don’t know it, even I never thought of counting my sheep?
Urban Educated: not knowing your own sheep is your backwardness, listen to me. I will prepare a detailed list of all your sheep with their age and gender
The shepherd unwillingly said OK
Urban educated: Then what will I get for that job? I want one of your sheep, Will you agree for that?
The Shepherd kept silent as he never thought this kind of situation
Then the urban educated prepared a MoU and the shepherd put a Thumb Impression unwillingly on it
The urban educated opened his laptop and drawn a table with some figures and given it to shepherd and said: “See this list of your sheep with full details, give me one sheep”
The shepherd put his face blank
The urban educated chosen one and told “i want this sheep”
Then the rural shepherd told “OK OK you can take that one” and asked the educated urban man “Can you please tell me who are you?
Then the educated urban man said “That is not there in the MoU signed by you to reveal my identity so I don’t want to tell my Identity.
The Shepherd: Even though it is not there in the MoU why don’t you introduce yourself to me?
Urban Educated: No No I will not tell you Who I am, it is waste of my time let me go…
The shepherd: OK you can go, I know who are you?
Urban Educated: What you know about me?
The shepherd: I know you are an NGO!
Urban Educated: How you know this
The Shepherd: See there are four reasons to confirm your identity as an NGO
- I never asked you to come here but you have come
- I never asked you to count my sheep but you have counted
- I never agreed to give my sheep but you are taking it with you
- And the important and last point is that you have chosen one to take it with you, actually it is not a sheep but a dog!
The urban educated: !!!!!!??????
Probe against English and Foreign Languages University professors
TNN Nov 16, 2011, 03.37AM IST Tags: The National|Osmania University
HYDERABAD: The Osmania University (OU) police on Monday recorded the statements of two English and Foreign Languages University (Eflu) professors for allegedly abusing a Dalit student in the name of his caste and forcing him to quit studies.
R Jayamurugan, a Dalit student pursuing BA II year (German) at the Eflu, was allegedly harassed by professors of German department, Meenakshi Reddy and Adrian Francis, by failing him consistently in his semester examinations and forcing him to discontinue the course. A complaint was filed by Karthik Navayan, an activist, on behalf of the student with the National Human Rights Commission.
The OU police summoned the professors as they received a letter from NHRC directing them to enquire into the allegations. On August 16, Meenakshi Reddy, dean of German department, allegedly asked 26-year-old Jayamurugan to get out of the class after verbally abusing him, according to police. “According to Murugan, Meenakshi Reddy said that he should rather take up his caste (pallan) profession than waste university money,”
OU inspector P Ashok said. Murugan claimed he was failed four times in Culture and Civilization of the third semester by Adrian Francis intentionally. “According to Murugan, the professor once remarked that he (Murugan) managed to get admission in Eflu only because of reservations,” the inspector said. Murugan added that because of the harassment, he left the university and went back to his home town. In their statements, the professors denied making any casteist comments.
However, police said that there were some eyewitnesses to the derogatory comments made by the professors. “Some eyewitnesses confirmed the statement given by Murugan and the same will be mentioned in the report to be sent to the human rights commission this week,” the inspector added. Meanwhile, other students of the university have also come up with similar allegations against Meenakshi Reddy. “I have secured an A grade in English, but I was failed in German. The professor was rude to me several times,” a BA III semester student said.

Have visited Kacheguda SC hostel on 19th February 2010, and observed the physical condition and other facilities in the hostel and also interacted with the students
The hostel completely neglected by the officials,
- There is no proper electricity wiring the wires are hanging everywhere where on the walls
2. Electrical wires are hanging even on the floor
3. The water taps are giving electricity shocks while on and off
4. There are 60 rooms in the three floors and in each room about 15 to 16 students are accommodated
5. Mess was not functioning from last one year and students have to cook their food every time
6. If there is no electricity supply then students have to cook their food with woods
7. Students told that there are 6 sweepers are working in the hostel to clean but the premises of the hostel was very un clean
8. There are only 12 bathrooms 12 toilets for 600 students, and the bathrooms are not having doors
9. Five years back the authorities have constructed 12 bathrooms in the 2nd floor, but they are not connected with water so remaining un used
10. No doctor were appointed though it is necessary, and even there is no visiting of a doctor to check the health of 600 students
11. The mess Bills that is Rs 525/- per month is not released from 9 months , so students going to private works to feed stomach
12. The people around Hostel are dumping garbage just beside of the hostel, and it is producing mosquitoes
The state and central governments are claiming that they are providing all facilities for the Dalit for their empowerment, in the budgets we have seen thousands of crores were allocated for the dalits but where the money is going and spending for what
It seem the upper caste governments and officials may not digesting when dalit are studying that why the all social welfare hostel are in the pathetic condition, it may be the hidden plan of the upper castes to keep away dalit students for the education
One can understood the situation of the SC, ST Hostels in the districts and mandal head quarters, after knowing the situation of the Kacheguda SC Hostel which is located in the heart of Hyderabad city
The students demanding for urgent actions
1) Proper electricity wiring should be done
2) Bathroom doors should be arranged
3) Water connection should be given to the bathrooms
4) Mess should be re opened immediately
5) Mess bills should be released
6) Buckets, mugs, plates should be provided
7) Library should be established
8) Dustbins should be provided
9) Doctor should be appointed
10) Surrounding people should stop dumping garbage beside hostel
A students team went to the Executive director of social welfare department and submitted a memorandum with the above demands on 20th Feb 2010, he replied that he will look in to the matter But it will not end with this representation and we the Campaign for the elimination of caste discrimination in education institutions is decided to meet the higher officials for the immediate actions
Thanks and regards

In ancient and mediaeval times they (Brahmins) made such an alliance with the Kshatriya or the warrior class and the two not merely ruled the masses, but ground them down to atoms, pulverized them so to say – the Brahmin with his pen and Kshatriya with his sword. At present, Brahmins have made an alliance with the Vyshyas class called banias. The shifting of this alliance from Kshatriya to banias is in the changed circumstances quite inevitable. In these days of commerce money is more important than sword. That is one reason for this change in party alignment. The second reason is the need for money to run the political machine. Money can come only from banias. It is the Bania who is financing the congress largely because Mr. Gandhi is a Bania and also because he has realized that money invested in politics gives large dividends. Those who have any doubt in the matter might do well to read what Mr. Gandhi told Mr. Louis Fischer on June 6, 1942 – Dr.B.R.Ambedhkar ( Dr .Babasahib Ambedkar Writings and speeches, vol.9, page 208
