Dalit Panther's co-founder Raja Dhale dies

Raja Dhale, one of the founders of the radical outfit Dalit Panther, died. He was 78.


Hailing from Maharashtra's Sangli district, Dhale along with others in 1972 founded Dalit Panther, a youth-based organisation inspired by the Black Panther outfit of African Americans in the US, with an aim to raise the voice of Dalits more aggressively in the state.


Apart from being a social worker, he authored several books based on his thoughts and works.
