"Have you been accused of being High Caste and therefore automatically judged evil ?

Has your child been vilfied and accused of being evil, just because of your surname ?

Have you been made to feel inferior for no reason?

Are you tired of trying to prove your innocence, your goodness, your genuine humanist perspective and your dharmic desire to see good things for all Humanity?

Let's talk about Caste ..

Almost everyone on the planet has heard of the "Ancient Hindu Caste" system and somehow, almost everyone knows how horrible it is, but what if it wasn't ancient and it wasn't Hindu? Almost everyone on the planet knows that the colonialist erasure of indigenous languages and ideas was a horrific chapter in human history, but what if it's not over, what if it's morphed in to a new form, just as devastating and destructive, and what if the Caste issue holds the key to revealing it?

 

Every Hindu walks through life carrying a subliminal guilt that his or her ancestors were "caste discriminators" and every devout Christian walks tall and proud in the knowledge that his or her ancestors helped to free the crushed, downtrodden from the depraved Hindoo caste system, and being an accepted "truth" no-one questions it any more. What if they are both victims of the same deception, of the same multigenerational fraud?

In 2016, the British Hindu community was rocked when it became the target of demonisation and dehumanisation by anti-Hindu Anglican Evangelists. Allegations were made that caste discrimination was not a relic of history but was present and not only present but rife amongst the British Indian community. The difficulty was that there was no experience of it at the grass roots level, and there was no evidence of it being either systemic nor endemic, so what was afoot? The author Pt Satish K Sharma, a Dharmic Scholar and Theologian and a long serving community worker under took the task of determining, once and for all, the real history of Caste and of establishing and quantifying its presence or absence in the Britain of the 21st Century. There were mountains of academic accounts of the theory, allegations and anecdotes abounded and yet the reality at ground level was remarkably different.

Ultimately, Indians themselves, Hindus and non-Hindus, will have to find a solution to this issue and it is my conviction that the time for the healing of the rift in our Indian family, is at hand. One thing is clear, as will be demonstrated by the contents of this work and that is that non-Indian non-indigenous interlopers in this space, whose interests are served by this conflict, will seek to add fuel to and fan the flames of this conflagration, seeking surreptitiously to perpetuate Caste consciousness - their “good intentions” need to be courteously but firmly ejected.

The revelations contained in this work were the revelations which incinerated the false claims which had been levelled, revealed the hidden hand behind the anti-Hindu media campaign but also provided the context and framework with which this long running civilisational wound could be healed.
