We need to understand that casteism is a social evil that affects entire society. It is not upper caste vs lower caste. It is the tendency to consider oneself part of a smaller and smaller special group.
Caste system is far worse among so-called Dalits. And it exists within Brahmins.
Many teach specific scriptures only to specific gotra, specific village etc etc. Try organising inter caste marriage among so-called Dalits in UP.
It is a pan-society problem. Those who make it exclusively upper vs lower are doing it for political mileage.
And let me tell you, Muslim society and Christian society is far worse than Hindus in this matter because carrot-stick of heaven-hell also dangles over their head.
Good part is that it does not exist in Vedas.

For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.
