The word “Dalit”, which it is customary to call Indian “untouchables”, can be translated as “oppressed”. Every day in India, an average of three Dalit women are raped and two of this caste are killed. According to official statistics, crimes against “untouchables” occur every 18 minutes. In addition, although the new president of the country Ram NathCovind himself belongs to the Dalits, this has little effect on their position in society.
