After the harrowing Hathras case, the reality behind India's casteism and the hate crimes related to it are finally being discussed. In order to aid this much-needed conversation, users on social media are circulating a particular clip that sums up the harsh reality of India's caste system.
Ayushmann Khurrana's impactful scene from Article 15 is being used to talk about discrimination against the Dalit community. It is a fine example of how reel life imitate real life.
The scene features the actor, playing a cop who asks his subordinates how caste system works in the village and where he stands as a 'Brahmin'.
The movie, and this clip particularly are being used on Twitter with the #DalitLivesMatter.
My favourite scene of Article 15 as I could relate to each and every dialogue. Listening to these things since early childhood and still continue to. https://t.co/VHzJi5hXzM— Prashant Tiwari (@prashant2664) October 2, 2020

Article 15 of the Indian Constitution prohibits discrimination of Indians on basis of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.

With Article 15, Twitter users have found a way to get the point across in a simple yet effective manner.
