The Ravidasi Community

The Ravidasi Community

Description

A study of the Ravidasi community is an important feature for students looking at the issue of caste within Sikhism. This presentation examines the teachings of the Sikh Gurus towards caste. It looks at the contradictions between religious teachings with actual praxis. A substantial proportion of the Ravidasi community claim that they have been discriminated against by higher caste Sikhs because of the stigma of untouchability associated with the traditional caste (zat) occupation of the chamars.
