    Das has heard many Sikhs saying that due to there hindu forefather they are forced to follow caste.So das got an essy from Bajrang Dal site which says that scripture revered by Hindus does not validate caste.

    So if caste is unvalid as per Hindus then how could it come in Sikh Panth.

    In Hinduism there is no gender, sexuality, caste, religion, race, nationality or any other barrier since Hinduism teaches to regard ourselves as the soul which is free of all wordly attributes. Any caste can attain Moksha. However just like men are given separate but equal duties they should stick to, so should each caste. That is the true meaning of these labels - to create a good, balenced society.

    How do you justify the caste system in Hinduism?

    Gita says that the caste is due to qualities and profession (Guna Karma Vibhagasah). Qualities were always respected. Rama and Krishna were non-Brahmins. The Brahmin priests wash the statues of Rama and Krishna and swallow it as sacred water. In Bhagavatam it is written that Bhuri Sravasa, who is a pot maker was made Brahma in the sacrifice. Ravana was a Brahmin but was condemned. Every human being is ‘Sudra’ by birth and can become Brahmin by practicing the true meaning of Vedas (Janmana Jaayate). Brahmana means he who knows Brahman. Brahman also means Veda in Sanskrit. Every caste contains good people as well as bad people. Sabari and Kannappa belong to the family of untouchables. No body is untouchable by birth. In Veda only four castes were mentioned. How this fifth caste came into existence? All the bad people in the four castes were expelled from the village just like a bad student is expelled from the school. Thus untouchability is due to the qualities and deeds but not by birth. Brahmins are worshipping the photos of Sabari and Kannappa in their prayer rooms.

    I find this an important one. Problem starts when things are taken granted.. I mean when a kid born to Brahman parents start calling themselves brahman without practising those principles. Extending this to sikhs, kids born into sikh families dont become sikh automatically, if they dont follow the sikhi principles. One got to earn the title.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
