We want to see our Mother in Human form – Prof Narendra Nayak
Mangaluru: The Karnataka Dalit Sangharsha Samiti staged a protest against the Central government for the recent attack on Dalits, in front of the DC office here on July 28. Prior to the protest, a rally was held from the Ambedkar circle, which culminated in front of the DC office.
Addressing the protesters state convener of the Karnataka Dalit Sangharsha Samiti Devadas said that the BJP and the Sangh Parivar is showing double standard with the Dalits. In the name of beef, the BJP and the Sangh Parivar are assaulting Dalits but they are not taking any action against the party leaders who are involved in beef export. In the name of Gorakshak, they are trying to dominate the Dalits and the women. ln the next elections, we will surely give the BJP government a befitting reply.
Addressing the protesters President of the federation of Indian rationalist association, Prof Narendra Nayak said that the BJP government is against the Dalits, and is not allowing them to have nutritious food. The Dalit children are deprived of getting nutritious food. The prices for the daily commodities have been increased and it is very difficult for the poor to lead a normal life. We have to change our eating habit and depend on meat which has more protein. Beef is cheaper if you compare to other meat and most of the people consume beef but Hindu organizations have problems if Dalits consume beef.
He also said that we always want to see our mother as a human being and not in the form of a cow. We need to treat and respect all humans equally. The BJP is respecting animals more than human beings, he said.
Santhosh Kumar Bajal, P V Mohan, Dayanand Shetty, Gopal Muttur and others were also present.
