Many Indians don’t consider Dalits, Muslims as human beings: Rahul Gandhi
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said the shameful truth is many Indians don’t consider Dalits, Muslims and Tribals as human beings.
Launching a scathing attack on the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath over the Hathras case, he said in a twitter: ‘The shameful truth is many Indians don’t consider Dalits, Muslims and Tribals to be humans,’ report Indian newspapers.
Rahul Gandhi has been active in supporting the family of the 20-year-old girl who was allegedly gang-raped and murdered by a group of upper-caste men.
Last week, in an attack over Prime Minister Natendra Modi, he had said that it was ‘no big deal’ that he was pushed to the ground by the Uttar Pradesh police when he and his sister Priyanka Gandhi were on their way to Hathras to meet the family of 20-year-old Dalit girl who was allegedly gang raped and murdered by a group of upper-caste men.
In his press conference, Rahul Gandhi took a dig at Modi government and said, “The entire country is being pushed to corner and being beaten up. What’s the big deal if I was pushed. It’s our job to protect the country, we have to stand with the farmers. The government is such that if we stand against them, we will be pushed. Dhakka kha lenge, lathi kha lenge.”
He had also spoken about the UP administration and the handling of the case and his purpose for visiting the victim’s family.
