#Article17: Untouchability in Death: Dalits Not Allowed To Bury Bodies In Crematoriums

Posted on April 24, 2012 in Society

The other castes from the village have illegally occupied Dalit crematoriums. The body of a recently deceased young Dalit boy had to be buried in mud by the side of the road. Caste barriers are alive, even in death.

End Untouchability. Sign the Petition.
