Hathras Protests Spread To US, UK; Diaspora Groups Write To UN Seeking UP CM's Ouster
Moreover, over 30 UK feminist groups, all UK Dalit and other diaspora groups, including Labor Party MP Apsana Begum wrote to the UN Human Rights Commission on Hathras atrocity.
The letter written to the UNHRC calls for the formation of an international panel to investigate the Hathras case and demands the removal of UP CM Yogi Adityanath from the Chief Minister's post. British MPs and other organisations alleged that since 2014 there has been an increase in crime against Dalits and women in India. Over the last few days, incidents of rape of one Dalit society have come to light. Due to this, people of Dalit society settled in Britain have declared a protest in front of the Indian Embassy under the banner of National Valmiki Sabha.
