    Today data collecting persons of Indian census came to my home.I filled the form for my entire family.I was surprised to see there was no column for relgion.Instead of that there was column for caste.I even asked the person is there any place where we should have to write religion and he said no.Its surprising because without religion in census we sikhs cannot even estimate our numbers

    SSA,
    Very valid point. I think there are two things which we sikhs should do now.
    1. We must bring this point to the knowledge of administration and leaders to find solution.
    2. Most valuable feature of real sikhism is that it does not believe in caste systems so we sikhs should also not believe in castes and in the particular coloumn of caste we must write "SIKH" only. That would be real sikhism.

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!
