Dear Sirs,

We are writing to you with sadness and pain that as major national English TV channels you have not highlighted the horrible event of the burning and destruction of nearly 400 Dalit houses in three villages near Dharmapuri in Tamil Nadu.

Systematic looting, vandalism, terrorization and burning down has resulted in once happy families now living as refuges in fear and lack of even proper food and shelter. This planned attack perpetrated by about 2000 Vanniars belonging to some 30 villages has terrorized 3 villages for about 5 hours. Armed with fire, petrol bombs, crowbars and other weapons, they systematically looted the houses, stole all valuables, burnt all documents and certificates and then set fire to their houses, gutting them to the grounds in front of the people, old and young including children. Young school children witnessed fathers of their classmates stealing all valuables and pouring petrol, opening gas cylinders and setting fire to their houses. Some have estimated the damage caused at Rs. 25 crores. A love marriage between a Dalit young man and a Vanniar young woman is falsely cited as the cause of the violence and there seems to be some mystery surrounding the death of a father of the girl. Caste-based leaders of PMK are holding out threat against such intermarriages.
