" A 20-year-old Dalit man ‘chased, beaten to death over inter-caste relationship with a woman" 
"Want Justice’: Kin of UP Dalit Teen Shot Dead Over ‘Temple Entry’"

Every 15 minutes, a crime is committed against a Dalit, 6 Dalit women are raped every day and 56,000 children living in slums die due to malnutrition every year in India. 
Dalits are still being oppressed. 

Do Dalit Lives Not Matter?
Privileged in India often ignore such atrocities. #JusticeForArvindBansod can’t be found in social media trends. Turning a blind eye does not solve anything for anyone. On June 6, 2020, a 17-year-old Dalit boy named Vikas Kumar Jatav was shot dead by four upper-caste men for visiting a temple in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh. This incident did not make it to the mainstream media houses until people on social media expressed outrage.

Why is justice not asked for the people discriminated against and murdered in their own homeland? Do their lives not matter?

Please don't let this movement die. Let's fight together to bring justice and change!
