Caste system is NOT evil as projected - seeking discussion
I have been seeing in various mails, that people start observing facts about caste system, but at last end in projecting as though the caste system is the biggest evil..
This is not true.. Caste system had its own share of problems, drawbacks.. but those are short comings as in every other system.. THey are NOT evil as being projected..
the caste before britishers were more of religious in nature, and caste were merely a dharma to a person.. but, since britishers came from a racist society and background, they saw everything in terms of race.. and hence they categorized each jaati as race which formed the basis of present day caste system.. giving identity to those people, who were not aware of that so far..
In one way, the present caste system, their problems and the degradation are all british creations...
I wish a constructive debate on this, and i request who dont agree with me, to be factful based on inferences, and NOT to resort to any accusations ..
those who believe caste as evil, please dont repeatedly accuse that caste is evil.. this has been said thousands of times.. so please try to be objective on why it is called evil, what are the drawbacks, and the probable historic background on the caste system..
The proper understanding of caste system is essential, because this is one of the tools used by western countries to denigrate india as whole and hinduism in particular..
Expecting a constructive response on this..
