Pune Maratha Kranti Morcha
MARATHA KRANTI MORCHA is series of silent demonstrations happening across Maharashtra by Maratha community. The first silent march (demonstrations) happened in Aurangabad on 9th of August 2016. It was a reaction to Kopardi rape and murder of a teenager on 13th July 2016. The striking feature of these demonstrations is no political party, leader or organization is at the forefront of these marches.
Typically people gather at at a starting place on a pre-decided date and time. Then walk silently to the district headquarter or a city center where a memorandum of demands is handed over to district administration by youth.
The main demands are
1- Justice to Kopardi rape-murder victim: the body of the 14-year-old girl’s discovered in Karjat’s Kopardi village (Ahmednagar district in maharashtra) on July 13. According to the police, the victim who was returning home after visiting her grandparents in the same locality, was stopped by three men on the way who raped the girl and then strangled her. The post-mortem confirmed that she had been raped and brutally beaten up. Her limbs had fractured, arms dislocated from shoulders, and the body had human bite marks all over.
Police said she was killed by strangulation
2-Change in Atrocity act to avoid its misuse: The crime has caused quite a stir in Ahmednagar district, especially among members of the Maratha community. The victim belonged to a Maratha family while the alleged perpetrators belonged to Mahar caste, a Dalit community. There is a widespread feeling among Maratha community that atrocity act deters people from reporting crimes against dalits due to the fear of fake retaliatory complaints under atrocities act.
3-Reservation for Maratha under OBC: Jats of northern India, gurjars of Rajasthan, patels of Gujrat and Maratha of Maharashtra are traditional farming communities. Once the dominant communities of rural heartlands, they no longer enjoy the same status. Hence the demand for reservation is getting stronger. The Kopardi case presented a forum for Maratha community to unite and present their long standing demand
