Caste no bar (SC/ST excuse)Wedded to untouchability, even in cyberspace


COIMBATORE: sample the way untouchability is making it to cyberspace: ‘Caste no bar (SC/ST excuse)’. The entry, made by a girl as part of her profile posted on Bharatmatrimony.com, horrified city resident P Jayan. “I wonder how the website management allowed the client to post such an entry. It’s an affr ont to the country’s Scheduled communities,” Jayan told Express.

On Monday, he called up the girl’s mother. That night, he found the profile having been yanked off the site.

Portal founder Murugavel Janaki raman says BharatMatrimony has been neutral towards caste and religion. “If we sight an objectionable entry, we modify the description and educate members on the subject.”

Jayan doesn’t see this as an isola ted case. He claims many matrimony sites bear similar entries. He now plans to move a court seeking directions to all such portals to moderate content to prevent untouchability.

K Samuel Raj, State secretary of the Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front, says he is surprised to learn that untouchability had crept even into matrimonial portals. A rec ent survey by the Front had found untouchability in 82 different forms across the State, but it did not include cyberspace. Terming the issue as ser ious, he said his Front would take it up with the government.
