05.08.2012 · Posted in Minorities, Report

In Hemmanahalli, a village near Maddur, Kemparaju, a Dalit priest was assaulted on March 15 this year for challenging a social convention that bars Dalits from entering the ‘garba griha’ of the local Chowdeshwari temple. Kemparaju was hospitalised due to injuries, and a case has been foisted against him by the police. This incident is part of the social discrimination that Dalits face in this area.
