SC/ST , Dalits r Colonial Constructs
Dalit” isn’t even a word in Hinduism and all the manufactured Dalit narratives and Ambedkarite garbage has no realworld implications and is just political limbo-jumbo. they rarely have anythingto do with real world persecution.
This is hindinized version of term Depressed. The term Depressed was used for the first time in Indian Census 1881and prior to this earlier term was Outcast which you can find in Indian Census1872. Outcast were nothing but anyone from any jaati. .
The restrictions that the Scheduled Communities faced in India, indefensible and in human as they were, are entirely different in their context and development. An apt parallel to study would have been the people of defiled trades and dishonourable professions in Europe, including the untouchable communities like Cagots.
Historian Kathy Stuartpoints out that in pre-modern Europe, 'throughout the Holy Roman empire,dishonourable tradesmen suffered various forms of social, economic, legal, andpolitical discrimination on a graduated scale of dishonour at the hands of‘‘honorable’’ guild artisans and in ‘‘honorable’’ society at large' and thenshe points out that 'dishonor was transmitted through heredity, often overseveral generations. The polluting quality of dishonor is one of its definingcharacteristics.' (Defiled Trades and Social Outcasts, Cambridge University Press, 2000, pp.2-3).As late as 17th century, when a rich Cagot dared to ‘pollute’ an upper castewater font his hand was chopped off and pinned to the Church gate.
