Category:Other
Date Posted:Monday, 4/05/1999 1:58 PM MDT

HELLO, WELL I KNOW THAT SIKHISM DOES NOT BELIEVE IN CASTE SYSTEM BUT THEN STILL WHY DO ALL THE SIKHS KEEP BRINGING UP THAT TOPIC? SOMETIMES I HEAR MY OWN PARENTS SAYING SOMETHING LIKE " OH HE'S A JATT, DAKHAAN,CHEEMBA,PAPA...ETC" BUT I THINK THAT NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE, THEY ARE STILL SIKHS AND MOST OF ALL, THEY'RE HUMAN BEINGS. CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL IF CASTE SYSTEM IS REALLY ALLOWED IN SIKHISM? AND IS IT OK TO MARRY SOMEONE FROM ANOTHER CASTE?

You are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. There is NO PLACE in the Sikh religion for "castes".

It is unfortunate that one of the basic teachings of Guru Nanak is not being practiced by many of us.

We are all God's children - and equal to each other
