Before that in 1981 “Meenalshipuram conversion” has seen huge members converting from scheduled caste. On December 2 20 feet high wall built by a caste hindu, without adequate safety measures, collapsed on a row of house where Dalits resided in nadur village.

The decision to convert was taken at a meeting the outfit held in Mettupalayam on Sunday. General secretary illavenil said “Our lives have no value in this religion and if they don’t want Dalits we don’t need them, We have been oppressed and beaten by discrimination our whole lives” says the resident of annur in Coimbatore district.

He continued “even when we are hindus we are not treated like it. In my village we are not allowed into the temple and we are not given equal across to the government burial ground. And now after the nadur incident I have been booked for unlawful assembly assault and damage to public property. All this because I stood up against caste discrimination. This religion has done me no good. I don’t see the point of being a part of it”.

While asking about their choice of Islam ” Muslims don’t believe in caste ” says illavenil. “Over the years they have supported us in our fights and struggle and treated us equally. We have grown up around Islam and understand the culture. We don’t have the same connection with Buddhism. So we have chosen to become Muslims”.
