Behind Gujarat boycott: Dalits won’t pick carcasses, want equal treatment

Around six months ago, a buffalo belonging to Vikram Thakor died. He dragged the carcass to an uninhabited place on the outskirts of Lhor village in Mehsana with a tractor.

“We have to do it on our own,” Vikram said, “Dalits in the village stopped picking up carcasses two years ago. Some months back, a dog died near my house, and I had to dispose it in a similar manner.”
Accusing the upper castes in the village of discrimination, Dalits in Lhor decided to stop disposing animal carcasses as part of their “customary” service saying it was a “filthy and unpaid for” job that was thrust upon them.
