India Gujarat Untouchability still followed in Anganwadi shelter schools

India Gujarat Untouchability still followed in Anganwadi shelter schools
Like it or not but Untouchability is still prevalent in Indian culture, its part and parcel of Hindu culture, caste system.

Hajipur is a village of about 2,000 people nearly 130 km away from Ahmedabad Gujarat State.

As per Indian express report in Gujarat’s Patan district, separate anganwadis for Dalit children
In Hajipur’s two anganwadis, which take in children between six months and six years, untouchability is one of the first life lessons they learn.

Anganwadi No. 159 is for Dalits, that is lower caste people.

Anganwadi No. 160 is for Higher caste people.

Anganwadi No. 159 was set up in 1997.

Three years later, the Patidars and the Brahmins demanded a separate anganwadi for themselves and moved into the premises of the adjoining primary school.

The new anganwadi, No. 160, now shares its space and entrance with the school, the boundary wall of the school separating the two anganwadis.

The discrimination in the anganwadis has been brought to the notice of the State Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR). On July 11, 2014, SCPCR member Madhuben Senama and her team visited Hajipur and submitted a report to the chairperson of the Commission

Now if you will go and ask the Dalit parents is it ok they got separate anganwadis, because of fear and lack of knowledge they will say yes is ok and they will also say how can they send their kids to higher class anganwadi

Why this happens because no strict rules and no punishments for such people.

Must think in a Democratic India this is happening what will happen in Hindu country?
