03 Jul 2006
Mr. Yoginder Sikand is working with the Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. On his recent visit to Sindh, he observed the pathetic conditions of the Dalits ( non-Christian and non-Muslim Scheduled Castes) living in that part of Pakistan and in parts of southern Punjab. Mr. Sikand Says Ã¢â‚¬Å“I also noted that there is hardly any literature available about them. Recently, the Academy of Third World Studies, Jamia Millia Islamia, approached me to write a monograph on Dalits in Pakistan, and I readily accepted the offerÃ¢â‚¬Â
He appeals Ã¢â‚¬Å“ I would be grateful if you could let me know if you have access to any literature on the subject (in English, Urdu or Sindhi), which I might find useful. I would really appreciate it if you could possibly take the trouble of posting me this material on the following address:
