The caste system as is known now was created by the British for the census purposes. It appears that the present government may continue this practice of our past masters, Alberuni however gives quite a different picture.

This is such an arrogant discussion.
People talking patronizingly as if they are burdened with a sense of heavy
responsibility toward those unfortunate creatures who did not get born as Hindus
-quoting from this and that shastraa. Whom are we deluding here? The world is
not flocking at our doors to convert to Hinduism. There are just a handful of
romanticists who are probably unaware of the inequity imbuilt within Hinduism
who want to come to Hinduism. Give them an honest answer about Hinduism and its
caste system and half of them would not bother again to convert. Rest would be
of a sturdier material and would be well off either way whether you place them
in a high or low or left or right caste.
