Caste discrimination in India
MPphoto
 
 

  Monica Luisa Macovei (PPE), in writing. – I deplore the alarming discrimination against Dalits still occurring in India. Although abolished through the provisions of the constitution of this country, the discriminatory and untouchability practices still affect millions of people. India is the largest democracy in the world. However it is unacceptable that justice in this country is not able to address properly violence against human rights. Today, I urge the Government of India to reinforce the legislation protecting Dalits and any other vulnerable groups. Indian authorities must ensure the intervention of police in gross acts of violence against people and their assets. In parallel, serious efforts must be made in order to ensure that the judicial system of the country will guarantee protection and justice whenever these atrocities are reported.
