• It is a significant part of Hindu beliefs.

    Hindus believe in reincarnation. They believe that, if you do well in your life in the caste you are in, you will come back with better status. It is not so much discrimination as it is a deep rooted religious and cultural belief or tradition. While it is unfortunate that many people suffer because of who they were born as, it is such a deeply rooted belief that is thousands of years old.

  • Hindus worship the Devil

    The gods of the hindus are nothing more than devils, Islam is the true religion. The Devil lives in the Bermuda Triangle and sends his devils and they disguise themselves as gods, angels, demons, ghosts, ufos, aliens, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, Mothman, The Jersey Devil, Owlman, Goatman, Black Dogs, Black Cats, Big Hairy Monsters, Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents, lizard men, etc.

    The gods of Hinduism are also devils,

    There is only one God

    worshiping false gods is shirk and leads to Hell fire forever

    Worship the true God Allah (swt) only, Alhumdulillah

    Hindus also believe we are all God, but this is wrong because why can't we create anything?

    Reincarnation is also the work of the Devil, the Devil plants these memories in our heads, they are Confabulations

    and the Caste System is discrimination because it makes people born as one person better than someone else

    all men and women are equal in the sight of Allah (swt) because we are all the children of Hazrat Adam (as) Alhumdulillah

  • Culture versus Religion

    I present my stand and disagree with the arguments put forth. Culture and Religion are not the same, though they are very close.

    The caste system was a cultural product, result of the classification of the Hindu society based on profession, into 4 classes:
    the Brahmins: priests, teachers and preachers.
    The Kshatriyas: kings, governors, warriors and soldiers.
    The Vaishyas: cattle herders, agriculturists, artisans and merchants.
    The Shudras: labourers and service providers.

    These classes/caste/positions were made to provide a sense of belonging and to provided a sense of standing in the society,
    but over time, these positions/classes became hereditary which became a problem and lead to discrimination . So the pitfalls in a society should not be blamed on religion.

    Lastly I wonder how the post of tahir123, got anything to do with this topic? I think such posts should be filtered out and deleted as such posts doesn't make any meaningful contribution.

  • Digression of society is the reason

    Hinduism is a large collection of philosophies and beliefs with one underlying premise-that of impermanence in the world. When the caste system first started out, it was just a system of labels based on one's chosen profession. People were able to choose their professions and standings in society based on what they wished to pursue. This is illustrated in the Mahabharata, when Karna the archer goes from being a shudra to being regarded and labeled as a warrior and king by his mere acquisition of a title from his friend. This was the case even after discrimination had solidified. Before that, there existed a Vedic society in which any person was able to hold great positions of power and obtain education regardless of familial social standing, sexual orientation or gender. The labels of Brahmin, shudra, vaishya and kshatriya were used in the same way as today, we use the words 'soldier', 'businessmen, 'domestic servant' and 'teacher'. In fact, the brahmins started out as beggars who were forbidden to possess as their own any material posessions except the barest of clothing, and who earned res
