India Dalit couple hacked to death over 22 cents debt.

   A man from India's Dalit community has been beheaded and his wife hacked to death after a row over a 15 rupees (22 cents; 16 pence) debt in Uttar Pradesh state.

       
"While Mishra kept shouting for the money, the couple started walking towards the fields. Mishra then ran to his house nearby and returned with an axe. He hacked Bharat repeatedly and then attacked Mamta who was trying to rescue her husband. The couple died on the spot," Nadeem, a local villager, told The Indian Express newspaper

Just when you think the world can't get any worse, two people lose their lives because of 22 cents. Why? What type of a twisted man would think 22 cents are worth the lives of two people? Money is the root of all evil indeed.

Lord have mercy on their souls and stand by their loved ones.  :'(

Not two people.  Two Dalits. 
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Is the situation there really that bad?

Yeah, this isn't really the world getting worse. On the contrary, the idea that they should be treated like humans and that an upper-caste man who kills them should be prosecuted is relatively new.

Evil people don't need big reasons to be evil, 22 cents are more than enough.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

The British formalization and perversion of the caste system (a system which was often really quite a good one, for all involved, in ancient times) is also "relatively new" and is probably the main reason extreme prejudice against low-castes and un-castes emerged in India.

Dalits being treated as subhumans.

In almost all the reports of horrific gang rapes occurring in India, the victims are Dalits attacked by upper-caste men.

As much as I like to blame the British for everything, I'd be curious if this is supported by facts.
