India: On Denotified and Nomadic Tribes

Indian Muslims on the plight of Denotified and Nomadic Tribes. “Denotified and Nomadic Tribes are defined as tribes whose people are “addicted to the systematic commission of non-bailable offences.” It is a classic example of “collective guilt”, how it has been endorsed by law, and how people are made to believe that it has indeed been created in public interest. In simple words, anyone born into such tribes is considered a criminal, not just by authorities, but by the average person on the street too.”
