After the video of a Dalit man being tortured in the video emerged on the internet, many Twitter users came forward to condemn the actions taken by the men in the video. While taking the incident as a representation of the whole country being plagued with casteist incidents, one user remarked that either the lawmakers have not been fulfilling their duties or the belief of Manusmriti has been taking over the country.
