Exclamation Seven Dalits burnt alive in UP (by Dalits)

Look at the bias that Times Of India has always shown. The headline screams Seven Dalits burnt alive in UP giving the impression that upper castes did this horrible act.

Only when you go to the second paragraph do you see that two Dalit groups were in a dispute and one group burnt the others alive.

This whole incident is shocking and horrible. It should never have happened. Yet look at our media. Always pounding on the majority!

Seven Dalits burnt alive in UP

LUCKNOW: Seven persons, including three children, three women and a man were burnt alive while over twelve others injured when a group of miscreants set Dalit houses ablaze in Unnao district late on Wednesday night.

The gruesome incident was an outcome of a group clash, sources said.

On Wednesday afternoon a group of Nut community members entered into an argument with members of Kanjhard community—both Dalits—over the issue of goat grazing in Danpur Sibli village under Fatehpur Chaurasi police station of Unnao district about 60 kilometers from the state capital.

The issue was later resolved by the village elders.

Despite the compromise, one section managed to set their rivals’ homes ablaze. From among the dozen odd houses engulfed by flames, nearly a dozen occupants managed to run to safety and escaped with minor burns.

However, later it was discovered that three women, three children and a man were roasted alive, reports reaching the state capital said.

Top officials of Lucknow Range, which covers Unnao, are camping at the site to supervise subsequent action in this regard. Further details were awaited.

Yehi to problem hai.

And if an upper caste was burnt by a Dalit, it would have appeared in small print somewhere, if at all.
