Re: Rajasthan Government School Texts Glorify Casteism
The delhi based author was biased in his observation, and hie prejudice against caste system does not let him to see the castes system in neutral perspective..
And i suspect a malicious play in terming his article as remarkable study.. what is remarkable in it except for denigrating the text books and caste system? Or is it anything that denigrates hindu system is remarkable?
The normal user has to understand the conspiracy of using such descriptive words like remarkable, brilliant, in legitamising a complete lie..
First of all, the very title of this mail is wrong.. writing positive about caste system is definitely NOT glorifying.. and the refusal for the mail author(sikand) to see anything positive in caste system is pathetic..
Indeed, many of the points mentioned by the delhi based author, can be clearly observed even today in rural areas.. Those who had come from rural side, will be able to understand it verywell..
In my own community, a typical marriage consists of rituals involving all sections of the society.. a barber singing holy song, a madhari presenting a new chappals, a washerman presenting a new clothes to the couples, like wise, all sections wish the couple as per their profession..
Secondly, the author attributed caste system to brahminism.. and he had expressed his utter anti-brahminists hatred in his article.. As today, anything said about brahminism is taken for granted..
He also dealt with manu smriti and attributed to brahminic dominance.. But he fails to understand that manu was a King, and he wrote the smriti for his empire, and NOT for Hinduism.. There are thousands of such srutis written later on according to times..
But the hindu bashers stick to the manu smriti for defaming hinduism..
I put forth a counter question to both sikand and the article author.. Are they ready to discuss about bible and quran, in the same way as they discuss about manu smriti and caste system?
I will show them equal number of highly provocative quotes in bible and quran.. will they bash those religions as they do for hinduism?
The utter hypocrisy will not allow them to do that..
