Get a book entitled Caste Out , was written by David Haslam and published by Unknown. This book was released on 16 June 1999 with total pages 171. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. The Dalits of India are downtrodden out-castes, constituting 17 per cent of the Indian population. However, thanks partly to the mass movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, they are comprised largely of those of the Christian faith. As a result of a sabbatical journey to India and Pakistan, David Haslam offers a sympathetic outsider's glimpse into India's caste system and the liberation struggle of the Dalits. Comparison is made between casteism and racism and the Church is called upon to play its part in overcoming caste oppression across India.
