Maratha Kranti Morcha – Are Marathas against Dalits? | Satyashodhak
The Maratha community in Maharashtra has been protesting for their right and justice for a rape victim in Kopardi. As usual the print and electronic media largely ignored this unrest and tarnished it via rumor mongering. Upper caste media tried to paint these protests as anti-Dalit. Marathas have been upset for a number of reason. Kopardi incident only served as a breaking point for community's patience. Plight of farming, non-affordable education, cultural attacks on Maratha icons, etc. Along with these problems the community feels that Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act has been misused largely to settle personal and political rivalries. The Marathas for the first time gathered unanimously in large numbers to fight for their rights and took a stand for future of community. That's how Maratha Kranti Morchas were born. Now they have decided to take their fight to next level. On 31st January 2017 Marathas will be blocking roads all over Maharashtra. Are
