Dear co- workers for the justice to the Dalits in Christianity and Islam,
It is very encouraging to know that the Writ Petition 180/2004 is listed in Court No. 2 as item no.20 in the final list for 08.07.14 in the Supreme Court of India.
This Writ Petition has challenged the Constitution Scheduled Caste Order 1950 Para 3 which denies SC status to Christians and Muslims of Scheduled Caste origin. The National Council of Churches in India and CBCI Office for SC/BC have impleaded in this case.
When majority of the political parties miserably either failed to extend their support for this just cause, or became a hindrance between the justice and the Dalits of Christian and Muslim origin, we look forward for justice from Supreme Court.
Let us pray for the intervention of our God of justice and equality.
Rev. Sunil Raj Philip,
Executive Secretary,Commission on Dalits,National Council of Churches in India.
