160 Million Untouchables in India

"Many Brahmins believe Dalits cannot be part of society because they are subhuman. Indeed Dalits once were treated like beasts. The rich could exploit them as they pleased. They could send them to clean their filthiest sewers, to skin their dead cows, to cobble their shoes, to sweep their roads, to cremate their dead. Today thousands of them work as scavengers amid human waste. They clean latrines and carry buckets of waste on their heads."

This excerpt was taken from an article entitled "The Miracle of the Dalits." George had me read it today and it was eye-opening and very sad. Someone has said that what God is doing among these "untouchable" people may be His greatest work in the world today. Read the article here about this "apartheid of India."
