India – Casteism is Fanaticism
The archaic antiquated casteism created hierarchies in Indian society by the presumptuous exerting authority and superiority over those declared inferior and unworthy of equal rights and respect is fundamentally flawed by any definition.
The abhorrent caste system maintained till today in the twenty first century in India justifying prejudice, persecution and isolation of humans in the infamous tradition known as untouchability – achut commonly referred to as the so-called Dalits, backward class (BC), other backward class (OBC), scheduled caste (SC) and scheduled tribe (ST) etc. by those above in the caste structure is anything but a progress for any society and nation celebrating 75 years of independence.
Independence – the sheer meaning and relevance emphasize freeing society from all forms of subjugation and suppression granting citizens nationwide equal access without exception on caste, creed, religion, gender and age…not only in adherence to constitutional law but also in acknowledgment of inalienable right of all citizens in the country.
The truly free nation would disavow discrimination and disenfranchisement of citizens in different communities based on caste, religion and other factors across the spectrum viz. social, economic, political and religious domains.
Unfortunately, India is far from the milestone in this regard. There is absolutely no desire or efforts from the ruling Hindu fundamentalist government and political class together with caste supremacy advocates and practitioners exploiting the caste system to exclusive benefits at the peril of those subject to generational indignation and suffering.
The caste pride inversely an embarrassment for a society unwilling to abandon and abolish segregation linked to caste and minority religion such as muslims continue to marginalize and polarize society.
The resistance and uproar on the latest publication on the topic – Indian Casteism in Hindi language on this site is least surprising.
The inflammatory remarks and reactions only confirm casteism mania crystallized into fanaticism among those whose ignorance exemplify ignoramus stupendous.
The topic – Indian Casteism published on this site in Hindi language with the legitimate classification of human species in human race unlike the prevalent caste pyramid and similarly suggesting human religion as humanitarian as opposed to the persistent degenerative caste decadence arousing rancor and dissonance is classic symptom prior imminent termination.
Anything destructive that has run its course and exhausted exploitative measures and means at the unjust expense of vast majority is designed for inevitable ending.
The victims of the discriminatory custom in return are expected to remain silent and endure the pain and vilification indefinitely is a tall order with direct impact on the users and abusers glorifying the trend.
India’s casteism is fanaticism deceitfully citing ancient literature and interpretations that are adulterated, subverted and distorted to retain tainted stigmatized status quo.
It’s time for Indian society to update and upgrade to the new millennium and twenty first century and relinquish superficial medieval school of thoughts manufactured caste doctrine.
The nation and societal development is achieved in fairness and equality experienced in life with dignity en masse.
The revival of humanity and humanitarian value is the only hope and gateway to pervasive advancement.
It is not possible in subscribing to radical ideology dehumanizing all those created by the same Supreme Being – Brahman not Brahmin nomenclature.
