Dalit leader and human rights activist Jignesh Mevani on Sunday demanded a ban on cow protection groups in Karnataka and caste-based seating arrangement (pankti bheda) for food at Udupi Sri Krishna temple.
At one of his first major rallies outside Gujarat since emerging as a Dalit leader in the aftermath of the Una lynching, Mevani said that the Karnataka government should direct temple authorities to roll back the existing system or face protests. “We are willing to go to jail for this,’’ he said at a Dalit “self-respect convention’’ in the coastal town of Udupi.
Alleging caste discrimination in allocation of land by the government, Mevani asked the Karnataka government to release a white paper on land allocated to private industry.
