    Caste, Hindutva and Dalits
    By Prof.Ram Puniyani
    Caste_Hindutva_and_Dalits.jpgCaste has been a major defining characteristic of Indian society. It has its origins in early India and finds mention in Hindu scriptures.

    Dix reporters ont été tués durant les six premiers mois de l’années en Inde, au Pakistan, au Bangladesh, en Birmanie et aux Maldives.
    Le sous-continent indien se transforme en terrain miné pour les journalistes. Durant les six premiers mois de l’année, dix reporters ont été tués en Inde, au Pakistan, au Bangladesh, en Birmanie et aux Maldives.

L’Inde se classait ainsi en 133e position sur 180 dans le classement de la liberté de la presse établi par Reporters sans frontières.
