A Revolutionary Change: Dalits (untouchables) defy Hindu Ban, Enter temple
From Times of India:
MADURAI: After a decade-long struggle, Dalits at Panthapuli village in Tirunelveli district entered the Kannanallur Mariamman temple with help of district officials defying a ban imposed by caste Hindus. Dalits, led by district collector G.Prakash and Superintendent of Police Asra Garg, entered the temple at Panthapuli near Sankarankovil on Wednesday. Though the caste Hindus resented the entry, they did not, however, make any effort to resist the move, apparently due to a stern warning issued by Prakash.

Secondly it is sickening that we still continue to describe some people (or should I call our own citizens of India) among us as Dalits, and Untouchables and it is very unfortunate that our national government and some national media too legitimize this label of discrimination for many reasons (that we can discuss it later). We don’t need words like Dalits, Untouchables in our Indian society. It’s just a shame that even today Caste System still occupies an important place in the Hindu religion.
If Hindu society wants to survive then it’s high time to time to stop discrimination (Dalits, Untouchables) from our society and start treating everyone equally….
