Sikh Vision of Caste System and the Menace of Casteism Among Sikhs

 
Arvinder Singh (Author) Forever learning
Synopsis

Highlighting the menace of casteism among the Sikhs, the book shows how this evil has led to caste-based social divisions in the once egalitarian community, how the downtrodden Sikhs are being discriminated against by the upper-caste members of the society, how today there is a growing frustration among Dalit Sikhs, and, how this spiteful practice has produced a sense of alienation among urban Sikhs and caste conflicts in rural areas. Ironically, Guru Nanak; the founder of Sikhism, had unequivocally denounced the Hindu caste system. And, accordingly, he and the other Sikh Gurus envisioned a casteless society. Exploring the genesis of the Sikh caste system, Arvinder Singh reminds the community that, by practising this divisive system, it is moving away from the ideal Sikh way of life – as prescribed in Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
