Demonstrators gather in Karanataka to protest misuse of SC-ST act

Dharwad(Karanataka): In against the dire misuse of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, thousands of people mingled on Kadapa Maidan in Dharwad. 

The march was taken out under the aegis of Akhila Bharath Veerashiva Mahasabha, with the State president of Mahasabha N. Thippanna, and other office-bearers including Gururaj Hunasimarad, leading it.

It was alleged that a false caste abuse case has been registered against the Tehsildar Pradeep Hiremath of Humanabad taluk. 

The State president of Mahasabha N. Thippanna has alleged that some people made it a habit of filing cases against innocent people including judges and politicians under the provisions of the Act.

“The false cases are creating a divide in the society. False cases were also being filed even against judges and politicians which was a bad trend”, Thippanna told local media.

The Mahasabha also clarified that only 2% of the cases filed under the Act had been proven so far. Moreover, the state is promoting the people to impose more atrocity cases by offering a big compensation amount.
