Your continual reference to them in attempt to slight others (Pakistanis in this instance) just shows that Indians collectively consider these hapless people as something inferior.
Many indians do indeed consider Pakistanis inferior. Whether this is due to their previous caste status or conversion to Islam is another matter altogether. Merely mentioning this recorded conversion of certain tribes outside of the Brahman system caste system to Islam is not racism. Perhaps try not being so sensitive. After all, Bangladeshis share a similar heritage from Pods and Rajbanshis who were outside of the traditional caste hierarchy.

It is directly relevant to the discussion. We are talking about the arrival of Islamic culture to North-Western South Asia (Pakistan). These groups were outside of the caste system eg the Jatts of Sindh and therefore more open to Islam. If such facts are hurtful then that is not my issue.
You said -

" ... descendants of Sudra tribes and Islamic invaders."

" the Punjab region has the largest population of Scheduled castes in South Asia. Naturally these.."

In a discussion of languages, caste is totally irrelevant. You brought it up solely because you thought "If such facts are hurtful.."

This serves only to expose your intrinsic racism.

Racism is so natural, so inherent to you that you don't even realize what utter piece of racism you are propagating.

Are pods and rajbanshis (aka modern Bangladeshis) a separate race? Are you implying that there is something wrong with Pod or Rajvanshi ancestry? This is the result of scholarly consensus. Now please stop this moral grandstanding/virtue signalling. Unfounded accusations of racism are against the rules.

As previously stated, this is the result of scholarly consensus:

How anyone can take this as racism, I fail to understand. In any case, MS Islam has proudly stated that Bangladeshis are descended from Afghan and Persian settlers but is offended by this?

The real question is why MS Islam is so proud and defensive of the idea of Bangladeshis being of foreign ancestry but when reality is shown, accuses others of racism? Perhaps their is some inferiority complex at play? Does he see Pods etc as inferior to Afghan invaders?

This thread is a good example of why we are considering banning South Asia topics.
