    Do you approve of the Indian President's holy thread?

    The President of India is used to wearing a holy thread that symbolises VARNASHRAM (the Vedic racism) which divides the human race into four castes (VARNAS) determined by birth, which are: (1) Brahmana, (2) Kshatriya, (3) Vaisya, and (4) Shudra, of which the first three are superior castes to which all the superior humans belong, and all the rest belong to the Shudra caste, and all Shudras are reckoned inferior humans born to do all menial and base jobs. The biggest and strongest argument against the holy thread and VARNASHRAM is that VARNASHRAM is a downright falsehood, as I see it.

    Varnashram never degrades the shudras. According to Purusha Suktha, it is from the Supreme God(whatever name you give to Him or Her) everyone is born. Varnashram classified people according to their occupations. Nowadays, everyone does every job and so, this classification may not hold good. For example, a so-called Brahmin can have a shoe shop or the so-called Shudras can perform pujas. So, we need not bother if a person should be called a Brahmin or a Shudra. It is one's belief according to which one acts. Therefore, if the President of India believes in wearing a sacred thread, no one can prevent it.

      By MANUSAMHITA, Shudras are inferior humans. By VARNASHRAM, castes (or varnas) are determined by birth, not by occupations. You've evaded a most important point, namely that VARNASHRAM is a downright falsehood.
