Solution

Our Constitution adopted the values of freedom, equality, fraternity, and social justice. In accordance with this, the practice of untouchability was banned by law.

Our Constitution drafted under the leadership of Dr. BR Ambedkar took a strong stance on the removal of the inhuman practice of untouchability.

The 17th paragraph of the Constitution bans untouchability and the affected class was included as the Scheduled Castes and parliament made law in this regard in 1955.
