For Dalits, Tribals and Adivasis, Easter is an opportunity to revive their hope in a new heaven and new earth....

For Dalits, Tribals and Adivasis in India:

Easter is...

An opportunity to revive their hope in a new heaven and new earth....
A time to see the curtain of division and discrimination tore apart....
An attempt of re-formation of human relations as Mother Mary and John had at the cross....
A reminder of the need of endurance and persistence to counter casteism....
An indicator that the possible and certain persecutions they have to undergo....
And a pointer to the fact that if they do not shout aloud, the stones will shout....

Let us have an Easter of resistance to casteism!


Let us celebrate Easter in solidarity with Dalit, Tribals and Adivasis!

Rev. Sunil Raj Philip,
Executive Secretary, Commission on Dalits,
Executive Secretary- in- charge, Commission on Tribals & Adivasis,
