the Khairlanji massacre where Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange a Dalit lost his family in a village in Maharashtra On 29 September 2006 Bhotmange 61 went to work on his farm near the village and when he came back he found his wife Surekha 45 daughter Priyanka 17 sons Sudhir and Roshan 21 and 19 murdered by amob The massacre enraged Dalits who took to the streets for a wide-spread silent protest which soon got aggressive The 10-year anniversary of the incidentcoincides with the Maratha-Kunbi movement for abrogation of the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act which was triggered by the rape of a girl by Dalits in Kopardi in July Rallies held by lakhs of people in absolute silence have been going on across Maharashtra for more than a month This Thursday the Maratha movement reminds us of that fateful evening of 29 September Representational image PTI The Khairlanji massacre On 28 September 2006 Surekha Bhaiyyalal’s wife had lodged a complaint against the participants in an assault on the village policeman another Dalit Siddharth Gajbhiye The accused were members of the politically dominant Kunbi caste who had received the OBC status by the Maharashtra government in 2001 The day after the complaint was lodged the accused were arrested but soon let off on bail after which they returned to the village and lynched the Bhotmange family For three hours that evening as Bhaiyyalal was on his farm a group of villagers surrounded the hut where the family lived then abused assaulted and killed the four people There were allegations that the women in the family were raped however the CBI investigations concluded that they weren’t That evening when Bhaiyyalal came home he saw his dead family The incident wasn’t picked up by the media immediately However as the Dalits of the state started a widespread movement seeking justice the details of the incident came to light This incident triggered one of the most prominent Dalit movement In September 2008 six people who were charged with wiping out the Dalit family were given death sentence for the crime by the specially appointed Fast Track trial court However in July 2010 the Nagpur Bench of the Bombay High Court in the case disappointing large sections of the Dalit community as they on appeal commuted the death sentence on the grounds that it was "not the rarest of the rare cases" warranting the death penalty The court modified the life terms of the accused and gave them 25-year imprisonment The judges presiding on the case ruled that the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989 was not applicable to the Khairlanji case In their view there was no caste angle to the case The panel who heard the appeal held that the murders of Surekha Priyanka Sudhir and the visually challenged Roshan was not motivated by caste prejudice; it was a case of "revenge killing" According to an editorial by The Hindu the caste profile of the Khairlanji village in Bhandara district was relevant to the case as the Other Backward caste (OBC) people formed a majority of the village The village was known for its prejudice against Dalits The case is currently being presided over by the Supreme court and Bhaiyyalal hopes that he gets justice Each year the Dalit-Buddhist organisations light candles on the spot where the family once lived Today the hut is gone but Bhaiyyalal keeps the iron cot as a reminder of the events that occurred The Maratha agitation In the past two months the Maratha community has taken out various silent marches in Maharashtra in cities like Mumbai Navi Mumbai Amravati etc demanding justice in the rape and murder of a girl at Kopardi in Ahmednagar district two months ago On 13 July a 15-year-old Maratha girl was allegedly gang raped and murdered by four Dalit youths who inflicted injuries all over her body They allegedly broke her limbs too before throttling her at Kopardi village in Ahmednagar The incident had sparked public outrage as well as a political slug-fest with the Congress demanding Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ resignation on "moral grounds" After the gang-rape Maratha Kranti silent morchas were held in Akola Nanded Beed Osmanabad Aurangabad Jalgaon and Jalna districts Apart from demanding death penalty for the accused the Maratha community leaders pressed for scrapping of the SC ST (Prevention of Atrocities Act) saying it is grossly misused and also raised other demands like quota in education and jobs As pointed out in a previous Firstpost report the entire Dalit community of Kopardi village wanted death penalty for the accused an yet they weren’t allowed to be part of the protest This has raised questions over the legitimacy of the intentions of the protests The situation today The two incidents of murder have triggered responses from the two communities — Dalit and Maratha After brutal incidents such as Kopardi incident the Dadri lynching (where a family was massacred for allegedly consuming beef) the Una incident (where four youth were canned for carrying cow carcasses) and the Rohit Vemula case (where a Dalit scholar of the Hyderabad University committed suicide after being suspended) tempers are fraying and it remains to be seen which if any community recieves justice Published: February 6 2014 1:44 am Related News AAP-Congress face-off on jan lokpal skirts the real issue: sweeping powers of the anti-corruption body Amid the political squalling over the Jan Lokpal Bill debate on its provisions has become a casualty By all accounts the Aam Aadmi Party-led government in Delhi — whose cabinet cleared the draft legislation this week — intends to table the bill in the legislative assembly against the wishes of the Congress which props it up from outside The Congress contends that this law would require the prior sanction of the lieutenant governor and the home ministry given that the jan lokpal’s expenses would be met from the Consolidated Fund of India Arvind Kejriwal’s government which has made the Jan Lokpal Bill the life and soul of its fight against corruption seems to be in no mood to listen If the AAP stays with its decision to send the bill for Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s approval after the Delhi assembly passes it the Congress will have to confront the difficult choice of either supporting a bill it considers to be constitutionally unsound or voting against it Should the bill fail to clear the legislative assembly the government may even fall offering Kejriwal and his party the big stick of anti-corruption to beat the Congress with on the the eve of the Lok Sabha polls Aware of its limited options the Congress has sought refuge in procedural rules to prevent the Jan Lokpal Bill from reaching the floor of the House The issue of gubernatorial assent is indeed important The AAP cannot purport to bring the Delhi Police and the DDA — which fall in the ambit of the Union government — under the jan lokpal without consulting the lieutenant governor and the home ministry That said there’s also a debate to be had on the mandate of the jan lokpal The bill moots a number of controversial measures to stem corruption many of which fall foul of due process In as much as the jan lokpal combines investigative prosecutorial and judicial functions in one body it has been invested with sweeping powers It can impose life imprisonment on officials found guilty of corruption Failing to comply with the jan lokpal’s directives could mean imprisonment upto six months and/ or hefty fines It can also issue orders to bring about changes in “work practice” The anti-corruption body’s powers need to be subjected to careful scrutiny By harping only on prior Central government approval however the Congress is evidently trying to keep alive its bid to somehow appropriate a plank it has tried to seize belatedly But its silence on the bill itself does disservice to the anti-corruption cause For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More
