Annihilation of Jaati is a fool’s errand. Those who support it have zero understanding of human nature.

In fact, in all the areas where ‘progressives’ have tried to annihilate it, Jaatiwad has taken even deeper roots.

Look at Tamil Nadu.
Let’s say that in Tamil Nadu, we didn’t have anti-Jaati progressive movement for long time.

Come to Punjab and Haryana where Arya Samaj, probably the most anti-Jaati organisation to have ever existed, has been working since 1865 with missionary zeal. Achievement? Zilch.
What do these ‘annihilation of Jaati’ advocates end up doing?

- creating identity crisis for those who fall in their utopian trap
- obliterating diversity of rituals, traditions or practicises of jaatis that become their victims.
Theirs is ‘the vision of the anointed’ (Sowell). These are ‘promoters of a worldview concocted out of fantasy impervious to any real-world considerations.’ They only look at ‘what is seen’ and react w/o caring for ‘what is not seen’ aspect of jaati, doing more harm than good.
Jaati and Jaatiwad are different. Those who want to conflate the two are no different from US Leftists who don’t see any difference between race and racism. Does having a religion instantly makes one a religious supremacist? Let’s end religion then, no?
Those who think we can’t get rid of Jaatiwad without giving up jaati think very low of Hindus.

Jaatiwad will end giving way to Hindu unity sooner rather than latter. That’s what we should focus on. We can do without Abrahamic mindset of throwing babies with the bathwater.
