This is a slur on our society. They are of no use today instead, they are obstacles on the way of development and peace and order. They are social evils and need immediate elimination. Here are some of the examples of social evils prevent in our society.

There is a caste system in our society. This system has divided the castes into two classes- high caste and low caste. Again among some castes in the low class have been declared untouchables. The untouchables are prohibited from touching the touchable, their food, drink, entering, their houses, temples and drawing water from the wells, etc. They are hated and exploited. The Muluki Ain of 2020 BS, the Constitution of the Interim Constitution of Nepal 2047 BS and the Interim Constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal 2063 BS have declared all kinds of discrimination unlawful. So untouchability is illegal and punishable, but it in practice in the society. This practice is a social evil. It deprives the so- called untouchables of their social and legal rights. It is an innovation of human rights. It may cause a revolt and break social integrity. Educated persons are against this narrow-mindedness and defective outlook. Young generation must bridge the gap between the high castes and low castes. We are all honorable members of the society.
