Untouchability high in urban UP and Rajasthan, even Delhi: Survey


The Indian Express reports:
A new survey on social attitudes in the country indicates that close to two-thirds of the population in rural Rajasthan and rural Uttar Pradesh still practice untouchability and almost half the population in the same area is also opposed to Dalit and non-Dalit Hindu inter-marriages. Despite decades-old-laws criminalising untouchability, it appears to be practised more by women as close to two-thirds of women respondents have confessed to "self or family member" practising untouchability in rural Rajasthan (66 per cent) and rural Uttar Pradesh (64 per cent).
