  1. Dalits are in a no win situation in India
    Look what is happening to them even when the convert to modern religions like Islam Christianity or budhism
    They in fact face. double discrimination as they are branded Dalit converts
    UP is the worst. Among the Bhimaru states
    Even the first citizen of India is not spared
    So what is the alternative ?
    None .
    Dalits will continue to be stewed
    And India is a blessed country
