Caste-based discrimination is a serious issue in the Indian sub-continent. Over 160 million people fall under the category of Scheduled Castes (SCs), the erstwhile untouchables, and still suffer from terrible discrimination. And, while untouchability has been outlawed, abuse and discrimination of SCs persist, particularly in rural areas of India. Caste-based discrimination and a birth-based hierarchy are not intrinsic features of Hinduism, and they represent a failure to uphold the highest ideals proffered by Hinduism’s essential, spiritual teachings, namely that each and every living being is, by his or her nature, divine. Prominent Hindu religious and spiritual leaders have joined the Hindu American Foundation by issuing statements against caste-based discrimination and a birth-based hierarchy. The elimination of caste-based discrimination must be a top priority for all segments of Indian society.
