GFA: India

Gospel for Asia reports that a legal case before the Supreme Court of India affecting the rights of Dalits (India's untouchable caste) has again been delayed. The case is intended to close a loophole that states that Dalits who convert from Hinduism are no longer eligible for assistance they have received from the government, on the grounds that the caste system is part of Hinduism, and if a Dalit converts, they are no longer covered by the caste system.
