Dalits demand land for graveyard

Dalits demand land for graveyard LARKANA: A group of Harijans held a demonstration outside the press club here on Monday in protest against encroachment of land reserved for the community’s graveyard on Mehar road.

Sanat Lal, Santosh Kumar, Mohan and Babu Lal who led the protest said that they used to cremate their dead on a three-acre piece of land allotted to the Harijans Balmiki community on Mehar road which had now been encroached upon.

The Sindh government was reluctant to give them possession of another six-acre piece of land allotted to them for the graveyard on the Larkana-Naudero road, they said.

They said that Hindus did not allow them to use their graveyard for final rituals and demanded the government and district administration should take action against the encroachers and immediately give them possession of the six acres.
