Valmikis Dalit community decides to do away with their Hindu religion
Valmikis are a Dalit community in India which was persecuted like other minorities.Since years they were not even allowed to have a haircut or get shaved as dominant upper caste Hindus deprived them of this right too.
The Brahmins consider Valmikis as too “impure and unhygienic” to use the razor. In Sambhal village, Valmikis have to travel a distance of more than 20 kilometers to reach other villages in order to get a haircut.
Recently, a Muslim barber was ready to give a haircut to a Valmikis family but he was forced and threatened by the dominant Hindus, as a result he refused.
Now the Valmikis have threatened to do away with their religion and convert to Islam, they assert that if the caste discrimination and anti Valmikis and Dalits campaign does not stop, they will embrace Islam.
There have been many other incidents too in the past which have now persuaded the Valmikis Dalits to take such a step.
There are already enumerable movements going on in India that threaten dis-integration of the country, with this new development by Valmikis Dalits, it seems that the Hindu religion is also at the brink of extinction.
