    Dalit students from Andhra from very poor deprived families have managed to perform brilliantly in IIT JEE. India will surely be a more egalitarian society in the near future if all sections of society manage to bring themselves up.

    In West Bengal, Muslim students are carving success stories and that too economically backward ones!

    Big differences between Muslims and Dalits - Muslims were never deprived from getting educated and/or systematically discriminated against; they were in fact the ruling class and artisan class basically. Dalits have been living at the periphery of Hindu society not given access to wells by upper castes and other resources. Even today Dalits are disrespected in Tamil Nadu , Haryana , Maharashtra etc [from incidents that are reported]. In few cases, Muslims perpetrated the atrocities [such as in the case of a Dalit boy daring to elope with a Muslim girl]. If even one such incident were to occur with a Muslim whole of the village/town would be up in flames. Even today in Pakistan the bhangis are Hindu Dalits, no Muslim cleans toilets and serwers, it is still done by bhangis. Muslims cannot be equated with Dalits, ruling class/lower middle class != lowest of the low. This is a false comparison.
