MIB to probe allegations of casteism at IIMC Delhi

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) has ordered a probe after receiving complaints about alleged derogatory remarks against dalits and adivasis posted on social media by a student at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), Delhi.

Media reports indicate that the matter was brought to the attention of the National Comission of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes after some students raised the issue with IIMC authorities.

The Indian Express quotes a high-ranking MIB official as saying that Joint secretary Mihir Kumar Singh, (also the administrative joint secretary for IIMC), has been asked to inquire into it and submit a report to the ministry by February 10.

The alleged issue stems after the recent suicide of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula in the University of Hyderabad. According to the complainant, a student at IIMC shared a Facebook post criticizing the community for making the issue political and for taking advantage of reservations.
