in response to reader comment: knowledge is power

What there is special to know about hinduism which teaches cast system no where it has peace

as Follows

RgVeda book 10 hymn 90 verse 12 - Manu Smruti chapter 1 verse 31

"So that the world would prosper, Brahma created Brahmana from his
mouth, Kshatriya from his arm, Vaishya from his thighs and Shudra from
his feet".

Manu Smruti in chapter 1 verse 93 glorifies Brahmins. It says

"The Brahmin is the Lord of the whole creation according to the law
because he was born of the highest part of the body, because he was
born first and because he maintains the Veda".

Manu Smruti Chapter 9 verse 317 says

"A Brahmin whether he is learned or not, is god. Even if he indulges
in all kinds of sinful acts, he is a god".

Manu Smruti degrades Shudras. Chapter 8 verse 413

"The Shudra has been created by Brahma to serve the Brahmin. Even if
master frees the Shudra, he is not free since Shudra is slave by
birth".

Chapter 1 verse 91 says

"The Lord assigned only one activity to Shudra, serving other three
classes without resentment".

Manu Smruti chapter 8 verse 281 says

"If a Shudra tries to sit down on the same seat as of Brahmin, he
should be branded on the hip or his buttocks should be cut off".

This is some of them I have mentioned over here

Let us see what Islam says :

1. Surah Hujurat chapter 49 verse 13 (49:13)

"O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female
and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other
(not that you may despise each other)"

2. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in his last sermon said

"Every muslim is the brother of other muslim. You all are equal.
Nobody has superiority over other except by piety and good action".

Surah Isra chapter 17 verse 81 which says

"And say : Truth has (now) arrived and falsehood perished, for
falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish".
