Situation of violence in India in lower caste protests Order of the Supreme Court

According to The Dalits, those who have been a marginalized community throughout history indicate that the order dilutes the legal safeguards.

In New Delhi, riots took over parts of northern and central India, when thousands of Dalits, members of the lower castes of Hinduism, protested against the order of the country’s highest court.

Caste prejudice is endemic in Hindu-majority India, even though the constitution outlaws the practice and has made it a crime punishable by up to a year in prison.
