The historical baggage of caste-based prejudices coupled with socio-religious inequalities have been quite detrimental for low hierarchy laborers/sweepers in janitorial occupation, which is overwhelmingly dominated by Christians in Lahore. Drawing insights from the theory of intersectionality, Dr. Ayra Indrias discusses the findings of her doctoral thesis with Dr. Nida Kirmani, describing multiple social divisions based on religion, caste, class, skin-colour, and gender-bias shaping peoples’ subjective realities and synergies that in turn lead to disadvantages, discrimination, and social alienation.
