The only way Hindu caste system could be annihilated would be by annihilating Hinduism. There is no other way.

Annihilating Hinduism means annihilating Hindus? How do you propose to do that? Why should you blame IS of killings in USA or Europe if your mind also works that way? Which religion of peace do you subscribe to?

How did Buddhism get annihilated in India, without annihilating Buddhists?

Let Hindus think for themselves. Thank you very much. You worry about yourself. Don't know how such fanatical posts are even allowed on this forum.

What is so fanatic about it? How was communism annihilated not far back? How was Buddhism annihilated from India? Want me to mention more examples? Are you saying that such acts are fanatical?

If Hinduism survives, Caste system also will, for sure.

Hints: In Bali, Hindus have the same caste system as in India. Cambodia had caste system when it was Hindu. Now being Buddhist it doesn't have any caste system.

That's why Indian Muslims and Christians couldn't give up their former Hindu castes. My own caste has a Muslim counterpart caste, lot of them live in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Beside that,we have Nadar Christians or Dalit Christians etc. in South India and often report surfaces how they discriminate against each other. Hinduphobia is another thing and conceding the reality is other thing.

Also, they are to be reminded of the Madras Regiment time and again to stop any silly thoughts of "eliminating" anyone. If India decides they are expendable, no one can save them. They will turn into Rohingyas and it will be little more than entertainment on TV News in the West etc
Well If Tamils have anything it is superiority complex not inferiority. Kandal is little nuts but you should see some of the Northern Indians if you want to see real inferiority complex. They worship whiteskin and have fetish for central asia. If that is not inferiorty complex what is?

ps: Kandal is absolutely wrong about Hinduism and caste. If Christians can evolve into modern and liberal religion so can Hindus. There is absolutely no need for any kind of annihilation. Hinduism will have to change for sure. caste will be annihilated but not Hinduism itself.

Buddha said a Brahmin is made by character not by birth. So a educated man who is born a shudra becomes a brahmin . It is not defined by birth but by his character.

Just so you know Karma is also in Buddhism but reinterpreted in Buddhist way. There are many vedic terms in Buddhism which Buddha also used but in a different way. Buddha despised caste and his sermon shows it.
