MANGALORE: Expressing regret over Dalits being ostracised for refusing
to work at a farmer's house at Nayakanur village in Navalgund taluk,
Vishvesha Theertha Seer of Pejawar mutt said this was detrimental to
social amity and also for Hindu unity.
The seer said he will undertake a one-day fast for peace and amity,
clarifying that it was not against anyone. "Since I am in Hyderabad
for the Chaturmaasya celebrations, I will be unable to visit the
village. As announced earlier, I will undertake a fast when there is
injustice against Dalits, I will undertake a 24-hour fast," he added.
He requested the people who put up such a ban to withdraw it saying
that in an Independent India, there should be no forced labour.
