Human Rights is one of the majors subjects for discussion in academics as well as in social sector and has an international approach to social issues and problems. The struggle to promote, protect and preserve human rights changes and holds continuity in every generation in our society. The concept and practice of human rights is the hallmark of any modern society. Marginalized Groups of India includes SCs/STs, Women and Children etc. The Constitution of India provides equal rights to all its citizens’ right to live with equality, honour and dignity. But the caste system and untouchability somehow and others are still playing negative roles from different parts of the society. Talhan, Meham, Dulina, Gohana, Saalwan, Chakwada, Khairlanji, Khandamal and Mirchpur are some of the recent instances of atrocities against Dalits in India. Atrocities against Dalits thus continue to exist even today, despite constitutional safeguards, and various legislative measures. Here we will study the way of their empowerment through the philosophy of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and what he contributed to their welfare. Empowerment is the process of increasing the capacity of individuals or groups to make choices and to transform those choices into desires actions and outcomes. In this context, the article tries to analyze the increasing and perpetuating atrocities on the dalits and other sections of the society which leads to gross violation of their Human Rights in a larger context.
Key-words: Atrocities, Human Rights, Constitutional Rights, Rights of SCs and STs.

The whole world celebrated “World Knowledge Day” to commemorate 125th Birth-Anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. Dr. Ambedkar emphasised on liberty, equality, and fraternity in society. He fought against caste and injustice because he found that there were no human rights for a large majority of the people. He rebelled against such a social organization.
