RAIPUR, Jan 18: The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has asked the State Governments not to use the word ‘Dalit’ in official documents, saying the term was “unconstitutional”.
The Commission has stated that sometimes the word ‘Dalit’ is used as a substitute for Scheduled Caste in official documents, sources in State Tribal Department said here today.
After consultation with the legal department, the Commission said the ‘Dalit’ word is neither constitutional nor the word has been mentioned in the current laws.
Rather ‘Scheduled Caste’ is the appropriate and notified word as per the Article 341 of the Constitution, it said in a letter sent to all states.
Acting upon the order, the Chhattisgarh government has directed District Collectors and its departments not to use ‘Dalit’ word in their documents, they said. (PTI)
This “Dalit” word does not exist in Sanskrit, neither is it constitutional. Hindus should shun it like plague. It is only being promoted by the Church to give a false identity to a group of unrelated Hindu castes and organise them under a single banner so that they can take on the rest of Hindus. The church is a genocidal animal — remember Red Indians and Rwandans. Hindus should be careful about the vendors of religion of “love.”
