“Right education starts where discrimination stops”. The words of great Dr. B.R Ambedkar still creates consciousness on the very purpose of education system. To him, fundamental rights would mean establishment of equality and liberty to reform our social system which is full of inequalities, discriminations, and other which conflicts with our fundamental rights. Social movements are not only caused by a single reason but emerges as a burst out from incessant torturing and denial of justice. Atrocities, discrimination, exploitation and subordination have a cause and effect relation with people’s demand for justice. In India discrimination based on caste, creed, gender, economic status exists in every sphere of society. The glorified knowledge centers rich in traditions do not have a different story to tell. The steadily isolated Dalit students becomes martyr’s due to their sufferings. Movements arising from students of higher education is also a struggle that tries to counter attack the socio-cultural hegemony of the upper castes. Indian Dalits student’s life depicts definitions of discriminations, poverty, injustice, denial of education, and so on. The cruel fact is, in our so-called democratic country, 28% of village police stations are forbidden sacred places for Dalits. We can’t expect any shielding hands from temple of justice wherein no one is there from these communities to raise voice for the voiceless people who constitutes one fourth of Indian population. Students movements experienced a vibrant change across the country which depicts sever failures in administration of distributive justice. The first and foremost function of a state is administration of justice. But certain prejudice still hunts the democratic values that have been upraised by our constitution. The main objective of student’s movement recently arises from central universities like JNU, HCU is to establish an educational environment in India based on social equality.
