Campaign against caste: 'Caste in census will partition India'

Comment: It is not just the caste. We probably also need to remove the religion for a simple reason that it has lost its meaning. If my catse can be Indian, My religion could be humanity!

Comment: Yes, I am against the cast system in India. The Word caste should be deleted from the Dictionary. There should be no caste/religion system in India. And No reservation on caste basis. But our chutia Neta's are doing all these mesh for their Vote bank. Jab Tak Ye gandey neta rahenge, Tab tak India nahin sudhar sakta.

Comment: I am against the caste census. It will definitely break the social fabric that is called as India. This will definitely create new problems in regions which never had a caste problem before, because someone will come to know that his/her caste is a majority in that region. In this scenario, we must all collectively try to kill this divider "Caste" . Caste should be confined to homes and should not be allowed to become an epidemic.

Comment: I wonder how the caste information is going to make a difference. In fact I would suggest we should not even ask for the religion. Religion is very personal and the more we respect it the lesser we will fall into the communal traps that some vested interests pursue.

Comment: My caste should be have's and have's not. It should be based on economic criterion. Caste census is for the political parties to convert it in voting machine and get the power to grab poor peoples money. Particularly Congress who wanted to have cast census to concentrate on Muslim votes and made india a battlefield to remain on power. Useless Govt. policy. It is policy of English rural in eighty and nienety, which congress implementing with Indian face. Vijay.

Comment: Before blaming Mr. Manmohan Singh or any political party, we Indians need to understand one ground reality. Who voted them to power. We people did it. In India politicians ask votes based on caste. Even in big cities, people look at caste for example marriage. Look at any matrimony sites for example. The profiles in Matrimony sites are not created by Mr. Manmohan singh or any politicians. It was created by us. There 95% of the people mention their caste and prefer marrying a person of same caste, otherwise they reject the proposals. It is because of narrow minded citizens. India is caste based not because of politicians, but because of corrupt and narrow minded citizens. Casteism has to be stopped by us first, only then we can stop India from being a casteist country.

While countries like China focus their energy on capturing the 21st century, our so called leaders are finding ways to keep us divided and waste our energy in petty issues and fights. They should remember that if the people get tired, a revolution is not very unlikely... But then we are Indians, the same people that allowed other less civilized cultures to rule over us just because we could not unite... May God have mercy on US. ...................

Comment: I am in favour of identifying caste in census. It is very sad to see that your web-feedback form is so designed that one can only say that he/she is against it. On clicking "I am against the caste census!" which is equivalent of submit buttion, I have no choice to say that I am in favour. That means you are trying to count only in favour of your discriminated campaign and not those who want caste in census. Please change your form. I know still there will be more not in favour of caste-counting. Since web media is mostly viewed in Urbanised area (25% of Indian population) where most of the middle class live and they have their view on caste. This is totally different in Rural area (75%). So it becomes a skewed survey by you. Please publish my view prominently.

Also the Chattakari/Julie film released during 1970 insist upon this which touched me. He is a Hindu, Julie is a christian, the Children born to them are Indians. In 1974 I married a Christiann Girl have two daughters. The elder an Engineer married a boy from another caste in hindu. The Second girl, a Doctor got her marriage delayed for 5 years since no takers from a intewrcaste inter Religion group. After frusteration I got her marriewd to a Christian boy who readily accepted her as aChristoian wife. Think of this. Only love marriage with a lot of bond will remove the caste syatem.

Comment: The very demand to ask census on caste base is to loot the wealth of nation. In the name of reservation the wealth of nation which belonged to its citizens has been looted by rich and powerful people only. Realy needy and deserving people are miles away from the benefits. Realy tribes, backward and adiwasies have not received the fruits. Now also those are demanding will take away the benefits from truely needy people. Economic information is being collected which will bring forth fairly real information. The benefits should be given to those who have not enough to feed them selves. Benefit should be given in form of work and not in favour. Common indian does not expect that.

Comment: Abolish Caste system totally from India. It is a disgrace to our society and a major block for the progress of our country. Throw in dustbin the argument of helping lower caste people by reservation in education & employment. Make education and health care free or affordable for all citizens. Create employment opportunities for all. No matter what it costs. It is possible for a country like India with huge resources (ununtilized). Involve all the people in building this country into a super power. All it takes is the WILL, GUTS, VISION.

They should be tried by the courts as traitors and enemies of the nation and society and put behind bars for life. Their crime is no less than mass killers and terrorists. They have inflicted irreversible damage to many generations of our society. Since, Congress ruled India for the major part post independence they must take the blame as well for keeping this issue alive. This party has turned out to be the biggest curse for us, our society and our nation. This does not mean that other parties and leaders are any better.

Comment: In America there is no system in place today that forces people to remain separate or keeps one class subservient to another. If you were born the son of a street sweeper, but excelled, you could become a doctor or lawyer or some celebrity or entrepreneur - and at the same time you would be fully accepted by your peers. Not so in India. The Caste system freezes everyone in place. It is extremely difficult - almost impossible - for someone from the lowest Caste to rise in education and social status. A Dalit would never be allowed to marry into one of the higher castes and would never be accepted as an equal. And for a Dalit to make it into bollywood, medical school or operate a restaurant or become a priest in a temple or become a member of high society in India is very rare indeed. You can move from one class to another in America(e.g Obama became President of USA) You must not move from one caste to another in your life time in India(e.g. Ambedkar could not become Prime Minister of India) I believe the right question to ask yourselves is What is the official parliamentary procedure to carve out an Independent Nation for 300 million SC/ST community from India?

Comment: I am in favour to write your caste. Hi, 1. when government has taken decision to do census on caste basis I think such type of "Indian" movement is encouraged by those who are not getting reservations but those who are getting reservations are certainly going to write their caste as well as their income to press for reservation & certainly this census is making room for "Mandal" like division in society. 2. caste basis census is certainly an evil but if carried out do not shy from it, I am in firm belief that upper caste should write not only its caste but also the income as well to provide necessary data to prove that they are not better placed then SC/ST & OBC & if they will shy from it they are making a blunder & loosing an opportunity which can not be make good decades to come. 3. Before last year I visited Lucknow dental college & I found there selection list displayed on notice board & I found out of 40 candidates selected 8 were Muslims which is about 20% of total selection, a recent survey of government of India shows that 31.2 % Muslims in India living below poverty line while the national figure is 37.2 % which reflects the false propaganda of Muslim leaders about the poor condition of Muslims. 4. therefore I believe that all community must participate in caste based census to show pro caste leaders about the condition of Indian masses that their conditions are almost similar of whatever community he belongs it is only politicians are igniting caste for vote bank politics.

Comment: If the Government truly wants to give the equal opportunity to all people then first of all the Government should stop the reservation on the basis of caste and community. Opportunities should be purely on the basis of merit of a person rather than which caste he/she holds. Secondly in case of the reservation system give the reservation for economically backsword people. What I observed that the people with good economical background enjoy the caste based reservation system rather than the actual needy backward person. If government really wants the progress they should concentrate on the development of slum area by providing them education for their children and food at lowest price.

Comment: Its a sad day to note that the Census would be CASTE based.God has not made us indivduals on the basis of Caste so how we as humans divide the society.India has fragmented in the past due to castiesm.All the ills which the country faces today be it the Islamic rebellion or the North east is because of casteism.Hindusim being such a beautiful religion has not been able to grow because of this.Buddhism which has come out from Hindusim surprisingly has more followers.And today we in the 21st Century so called the next Super Power are humiliating a section of our society..Really amazing..Let all the Hindus integrate because times are not good.Our peaceful religion is under attack on one side from Islam and on the other side from Christian conversions which is also happening due to Castesim...And one more thing all the Laloos and Mulayum`s who want Caste based census are the Country`s number one ENEMIES. Just hoping that Hinduism does not cease to exist in the next couple of 100 years.I LOVE MY COUNTRY AND PROUD TO BE A HINDU.

Comment: Sir, At every stage we have been talking about having a Casteless Society. But at the same time Every form that we fill Contains a Field to be filled ie Caste.... Can any body justy this? It is 65 years since Independence of our Country but still we are talking about caste. Let us first remember that first we are all Human beings. Each one of has the same blood and flesh. Let us, instead of caste, have a census of Humanism, Let us count how many pepople are ther who have Humanity in them? if the count is less let us stat converting them into being humans first who has respect, love,affection, and genuine concern about the other human being. I strongly wish to VOICE OUT AGAINST CASTE CENSUS. There should not be any Caste Census. It will only hasten our move towards doomsday. But will our voice count to stop the census? I have my own doubts. RMurthy

Social scientists have not been able to define "caste" precisely despite its universal acceptance.THe classical four fold "Varnashram" is a historical myth and perfectly useless for any practical purpose.

Reservation system is perpetuating the caste system. Reservation system, if at all, should be on the basis of economic status and not social status.

Comment: Caste based division is the most important tool to garner political power in our country.It is so deep rooted that nationality takes a backseat. I think its good to voice my opinion thru this forum, but its just for fun and discussion.And I have a doubt if these politicians will ever consider national pride over these discrimatory issues as caste.

Comment: Isn't our identity as an Indian is enough in our own country?If we are allowing ourselves to be categoriesd on the basis of caste in the very records ,how are we supposed to say we are secular.

Comment: Each time we fill a form that seeks caste details -- be it in education, employment, and elsewhere -- the notion of equality celebrated in our Constitution takes a beating.

Comment: Stop playing this "Divide and Rule" game! History has proved that again and again this happens in Hindu-Muslim, Men-Women, Dalits-NonDalits, NorthIndian-Maharashtrian, etc
