Event Description

As India went into a nationwide lockdown to fight the coronavirus pandemic, caste animosity continued its rampage and destroyed the lives of thousands of Dalit persons across the country. In this panel discussion, speakers will deconstruct the psycho-social and legal dynamics that perpetuated caste crimes during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, using sixty cases of caste violence presented in the book No Lockdown on Caste Atrocities: Stories of Caste Crimes during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The panel will be comprised of:

A. Kathir (Director, Evidence, Tamil Nadu)
Manjula Pradeep (Head of Campaigns, DHRDNet)
Dr. V.A. Ramesh Nathan (General Secretary National Dalit Movement for Justice)
Dr. Shewli Kumar (Associate Professor for Women Centred Social Work, School of Social Work, TISS)
Dr. Sujatha Surepally (Professor of Sociology, Satavahana University, Telangana)
Vasudev Charupa (Coordinator, Human Development and Resource Centre, Gujarat)

The panel will be moderated by Niha Masih (Journalist, Washington Post).

In solidarity,
Jai bhim!
