by Inbaraj JeyakumarDay of Protest and Hunger Strike on Schedule Caste

SCMI members along with program staffs stood for the cause of Dalit Christians and Muslims and participated in a Three Days Hunger strike in Delhi organized by the National Coordination Committee for Dalit Christians (NCCDC) & National Council of Dalit Christians (NCDC). It was held in Janthar Manthar near Parliament from 25th up to 28th 2011.

Day of Protest and Hunger Strike on Schedule CasteThe Dharna was about the Dalit Christians and Muslims struggle and demand for Rights and justice, particularly a demand for the deletion of the paragraph three of the Presidential order. People from different walks of life pour in for all over India and participated in the Dharna. Everyone came with the slogans and raised their voice to the government asking for justice. SCMI gave our service as volunteers in this Dharna.

Bishops, Pastors, Political leaders and social activists from all over India delivered speeches which were an inspiration to press more and to gain our justice back.

Day of Protest and Hunger Strike on Schedule CasteThe Dharna ended with a public rally marched from Ram Lila ground to Jantar Mantar. More than 3000 people joined in the march.

SCMI is happy and proud to have been a part of the Dharna and is most hopeful that such initiative will bear fruit and create a just society.
