" Campaign For Common Crematorium "

Creating crematorium or burial ground on the basis of caste is a crime. An elected govt cannot do this with public fund. Laying separate path also illegal. 

SC ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Act 2015 Section 3 Sub section (za ) clearly says : 

" obstructs or prevents a member of a Scheduled Caste or a Scheduled Tribe in any manner with regard to—(A) using common property resources of an area, or burial or cremation ground equally with others or using any river, stream, spring, well, tank, cistern, water-tap or other watering place, or any bathing ghat, any public conveyance, any road, or passage.

This crime 'shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than six months but which may extend to five years and with fine' the law said.  

I invite you all to join this ' Campaign for Common Crematorium '
