There is no castes in sikhism.. there is caste system in punjabi culture..that is that...sikhism and punjabi culture are competely different concepts....sikhism is off coz much more priceless than idotic punjabi culture which has nothing else to offer except - drinking, caste system, gender bias and arrange marriages.

here is what guru granth sahib ji has to say about caste system

"Let no man be proud because of his caste.

For the man who has God in his heart, he alone is the true Brahmin.

O stupid fool, be not proud of your caste, by this pride many sins arise.

Everyone says there are four castes, but they are all created from the Lords seed (essence).

All men are moulded from the same clay, but the potter has fashioned it into vessels of numerous forms.

By joining the five elements, the form of the body is made, no one can say that the element is less in one and more in another" Ang 1128 SGGS

thank you also kaur1699 ji, u kno whats surprising to me;

although many of our elders know alot more about our religion they follow it less.. and the newer generation is willing to follow the peace and equality shown in sikhi, i have many mates from other religions and all of us respect each others religions, but too bad some people in the world including some elders do not wish the people living in the world to been seen equally.

i am sorry if i have said nething wrong, i am only a bacha lol.

once again thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

Yea... I agree that the older generation does place a lot of emphasis on the Caste thing... Hopefully as the younger generations take things on, the Caste system is something that will be looked upon as something that has no significance..
