Dalit Dastak was launched as a monthly magazine in Delhi in presence of senior journalists and Bahujan thinkers at New Delhi on 27th June 2012.
Under the leadership of its founder, publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Ashok Das aka Ashok Kumar, the magazine has evolved into a popular YouTube channel www.youtube.com/@dalitdastak and web portal www.dalitdastak.com, dedicated to the cause of the downtrodden sections of the masses or Bahujans, literally meaning the majority, because the deprived sections of the society together form a majority in India.
Dalit Dastak is therefore committed to raising the issues and providing coverage to problems affecting the downtrodden masses: the Dalit-Bahujans, Adivasis and the minorities.
The Dalit Dastak YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/@dalitdastak has more than one million subscribers.
Founder and Editor-in-Chief Ashok Das, an alumni of the prestigious Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC),completed his Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism from the main JNU Campus of IIMC at New Delhi in 2006. He has worked for several media organisations as a political reporter.
Prof Vivek Kumar (JNU), Shri Anand Ji, Shri R.K Dev Ji and Dr. Puja are the Member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Dalit Dastak.
