From Javed Iqbal’s own caption, “Dontha warns that they dare not touch their Rohith Stupa. ‘Everytime there is a massacre or a killing of Dalits, just like in Tsunduru, a memorial comes up, a bust of Ambedkar. ‘They should not touch this memorial, I must remind them we come from a caste of gravediggers, and we will bury them if they try.'”
