India's caste system takes another life?
His Light was put off in vain due to the societal ills people carry within themselves. Ask your self WHY? Is it necessary?
A blood shed of an innocent man goes unattended if not for the few who cared. The above picture if you don't know is Rohith Vermula. A minority student perished in hands of brahmanical facisim.
"Rohith Vermula, a 28 year old student activist and Dalit research scholar, committed suicide by hanging himself. Rohith was one of the students protesting against the extremely casteist social boycott of Dalit students by University of Hyderabad. The death of Rohith Vermula at University of Hyderabad is a grim reminder of the persecution faced by the Dalit, Bahujan, Adivasi and minorities, especially in educational institutions.
University of Hyderabad (UoH) had restricted the entry of five dalit research scholars into hostels, administration building and other common places in groups and denial of permission to participate in students union elections. The aggrieved students were Rohith Vemula, Dontha Prashanth, Vijay Kumar, Seshu Chemudugunta and Sunkanna.
The decision was an outcome of political pressure exerted by BJP Union Minister for Labour, Bandaru Dattatreya and BJP MLC Ramachandra Rao. A letter was written by Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya to Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani alleging that the campus has become a “den of casteist, extremist and anti-national politics”.
BJP MP Bandaru Dattatrey, BJP MLC Ramachandra Rao and University of Hyderabad authorities must be held responsible for abetment of Dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula's death as it is their actions which lead to his suicide. ( thanks to - Pratik Sinha)"
The story has progressed asking the officials to take responsibilty of the action. The officials who were responsible filed a law suit against Rohith claiming he severly beaten the HoU ABVP President Susheel Kumar. The hospital released that he was admitted for appendicitis. The university has objected to these allegations and defended it's position and the truth of Rohith Vermula. See the letter written by BJP MP, Bandaru Dattatreya and BJP MLC Ramachandra Rao. Down below is the Press Release from HoU Teacher's and Officer's Forum.

Below the students are protesting. We agree. They did not come to a Higher Education Institute to get killed but to get an education. When will India take responsibility of these petty caste problem and religious segregation and learn to live in harmony? According to many citizens these provocations are by politicians for their ulterior political motives and not for the greater good. The ordinary citizens live in harmony with each other.
Rohith's body was cremated without any notifications which definitely rise suspicions that the authorities had something to hide.
HoU VC's appeal to the students.
