There is still a long way to go before the Dalits could imagine of some degree of respectability, dignified life and livelihood and access to criminal justice administrative system. For the Dalit community across the country, little has moved ahead on both fronts, with daily life continuing to be marred by incessant human rights violations in the form of atrocities and archaic untouchability practices. All the indigenous reform movement and religions in India had inherently revolted against the Brahmanical value system, which gave divine sanction to untouchability and caste system. The irony of the entire movement is that rather then working on the collective wisdom, the movement though claim to work for all communities, has by and large remain confined to a few individuals who used their community identity to gain the political clout.
