Hundreds of Dalits convert to Islam in Delhi due to Upper Castes' atrocities, offer Namaz, say would not return to Hinduism
These Dalits who belong to Bhagana in Haryana had been protesting against the upper caste Hindus' atrocities for months.
They alleged that they were facing casteist discrimination from Jats and their land was forcibly encroached.
Minor Dalit girls were raped but demand for justice was met with deaf ear by district administration in Hisar.
They had demanded action and redressal of their complaints about atrocities on scheduled castes (SCs) but when nothing came out after meeting politicians of all hues, they decided to embrace Islam. Those who undertook religious conversion said that the decision was unanimous.
The representatives of these Dalits offered Namaz (prayer) at Jantar Mantar in Delhi, led by a local mosque's Imam. They earlier recited the 'kalma' to formally become Muslims. Those who converted said that they had left Hindu religion as they wanted to live with dignity for the rest of their lives.
