How We Work

Indians society, especially in the rural areas, is still influenced by feudalism and the caste system which continues to determine the political, social, and economic life of the country. Caste based discrimination is practiced in the educational system, in places of work, villages and towns and even in courts of justice. The most heinous impacts of caste based discriminations are starvation and malnutrition. Acute poverty and cases of starvation occur especially in marginalized groups in the Indian society like minority communities, tribes and Dalits.

 

Dalits (often called the “untouchables”) have been engaged in the hardest and most difficult jobs in the Indian society, bearing the brunt of rigid caste-based discrimination in terms of residence, occupation or education. When the national rate of literacy touches 67%, among the Dalits it is a mere 32%. And if at all you are a woman from that community, it is still less at 23%. Only 6% of the Dalits own land, most of them labour in someone else’ field or migrate to the cities. Their standards of living force their children to work as child labourer even in hazardous industries.
 
The severest human rights violations in India, as the widespread use of custodial torture, are closely linked to caste based discrimination. In the context of crime investigation suspects are tortured to enforce confessions. Due to the absence of an independent agency to investigate cases, complaints are often not properly proofed and perpetrators are not prosecuted and punished. The discrimination of women and gender based violence which includes domestic violence, dowry linked violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment and sex-selective abortion is one of the most relevant human rights issues in India.

Solution lies in the structural change added with cultural reformation. N.H.R.C., and Minority Commission's recommendations should be legally enforced. In addition,social empowerment works with solid awareness campaign, both at the grassroots level to national level.Finally,a minimum human rights standard must be followed in every norms of social and political life. Not only government but also people should be judged against the international human rights norms in order to pave the way for the discrimination free society.
