Taking into account this historical reality the author has made serious efforts to examine the issue of empowerment of Indian Dalits in a wider framework. As a result this study has incorporated the issues like caste system and the social profile of Dalits within it participation of Dalits in the Indian political system violence against Dalits as well as conversion of Indian Dalits.
