Christians demanding for Equal Rights for DalitsChristians from different denominations will observe Aug 10 as black day to to mark the 61st anniversary of the Constitution (Schedule Caste) Order 1950.

It stipulates that “no person who professes a religion different from Hinduism shall be deemed to be a member of Scheduled Caste.”
