Genocide of 1 Million Dalits
The Pioneer
The Pioneer, 30 Jan. 2000 (http://www.dailypioneer.com)
"... The religion based on caste system has annihilated millions of Dalits over the centuries. About three million Dalit women have been raped and around one million Dalits killed from the time of Independence. This is 25 times more than number of soldiers killed during the wars fought after independence. That is why Dalits do not need Aryan culture or Hindu Dharma based on caste any more. ..." [Dr. Tulsiram]
