About the Book
Dalit Issues: Caste and Class Interface will fill the gaps in the existing body of literature pertaining to Dalit issues. The book addresses the key issues of Dalits struggling for the right to life and survival with dignity. Though this right is constitutionally granted as fundamental right, the realization of the same seems to be the most strenuous task.
Dr. Ambedkar’s lifelong concern for the vulnerable took the Dalit issues at the centre-stage of national politics. Political parties took up the Dalit issues and came to power. The stakeholders, including the human rights bodies, remain vocal in condemning the atrocities and injustice inflicted on Dalits. However, efforts are on for the realization of constitutional rights safeguarding the interests of Dalits, and creating an egalitarian society. The book in hand will definitely take such steps forward. This book will be of great help to all concerned with Dalits and human rights issues.
