Dalit Groom Wears Helmet To Save Himself At His Baraat As Upper Caste People Throw Stones

A Dalit groom’s baraat was stoned by upper caste villagers forcing him to wear a helmet to his wedding on Sunday in Ratlam district of Madhya Pradesh.

The upper caste villagers argued that lower caste grooms are not allowed to ride a horse or take out a procession, and the grooms family to abide by these rules.

When Pawan Malviya, the groom, didn’t abide by their dictate they started throwing stones at the procession, causing him to wear a helmet and seek police protection for the fear of further attack.
