Dear Friends,
Greetings from PVCHR,Varanasi,India. A huge conference on Dalits and Tribals is being organise in the city of Varanasi by National Commission of SC & ST . However prior to that the RSS having a secret conclave to plan strategy against Chiristians. PVCHR is strongly against any attempt to involve religion in politics and oppose strongly any attempt to saffronise Dalit & Tribals and any issues connected with their affairs. Though it is a coalition partner with the ruling BSP party of Ms.Mayawati, the number of atrocities against DALITS ,Tribals and other
marginalised caste is increasing day by day including killing of innocent Dalits and Tribals in False Police Encounters after first  trapping them in false cases.The caste bias of the local Administration and Police Force has been clearly brought out in the final report of the recently conducted INDIAN PEOPLES TRIBUNAL , which is being attached herewith.In the nearby Distrit of Mirzapur, Chandauli and Sonabadra there exist almost Three lacs of Tribals who have been declared as SCs when in fact they should have been declared as STs.In other states Khols and Karwas who constitute Tribals have been declared in other states as STs.The state of UP does not have any Human Rights Commission tilldate. A recent example is that Administration's behavior with the RAMON MAGSAYSAY Award winner Mr.Sandeep Pandey who had organised a meeting against Communalism in Faizabad .The State Terrorist arrested 76 people from this meeting on the 25th of Sept but the Judiciary released them on the 26th of August , a clear indication of the misuse of power by the State to please Communalist and Facist like the RSS AND VHP.
