Hindu vs. Buddhism
The Caste system mainly pertains to Hinduism, and is similar to the social class ranking in the early years of England. The caste system is associated with mainly marriage and a traditional occupation such as; barbering or weaving. Since the caste system is connected to the Hindu concept of the four varnas, which orders humanity by innate spiritual purity. The practice of the caste system consists of thousands of Jatis, generally in a local region. Each caste has its own history, customs, and descent from one of the varnas.
In India the main purpose of the caste system is to organize people by divisions of power and labor. This is the biggest topic in India because people think it’s becoming an act of injustice, and its causing people to be treated differently.
