  2. BY: M. Kashif yunus

    Good effort BUT in direction of uniting the Ummah not dividing it.

  3. There is no caste called Dalit in Islam

    All are equal..

    who is discriminating his fellow muslim as a dalit on the basis of caste shuld be hanged..

    And if any body want to see the equality among muslims they can come and see in tamilnadu

    here the embraced dalit hindus being married with muslims irrespective of caste and treated as a muslim not as a dalit

    here every body is equal..

    if u are believing islam,u should come out of castism..

    if u are merged with castism.. u are not a muslim..

    so no one can say superior..
    every body is equal

  4. Im a Muslim born in Kerala and brought up in Tamil Nadu. I have never heard a work called Dalit Muslim in my place. First of all there is no caste system in Islam. Here in Kerala and Tamil Nadu every Muslim is equal. If you come to the Masjid early, you will stand right behind the Imam, dosent matter you're black, short, rich, poor etc. etc.

    Poor North India should have some education, and then only this damn thing will come to an end. Please give importance to education. Dont discriminate your self calling as Dalit muslim.

    @Anish Ahamed
    He is right, I have seen muslim guys marrying datilts after they are converted to Islam. And a converted guy is more respected and has been given good support.

    There is always a thing called cleanliness. I have seen a video in youtube about dalit muslims and gosh they say that they do all the dirty jobs. Who asked you to do that???? Come out of that and have some good life. No one is forcing you to do that work. Dont say that we dont have money and all. Atleast you can afford your kids education. So my suggestion or advice is give education to your kids. This will change the situation, Insha Allah.

    May Allah the Almighty guide us all in the right path. Ameen.
