    There are casts in Pakistan but there is no 'cast system'. Casts are slowly eradicating and will cease to exist in another generation's time. They won't be visible anymore.

    I know Siddhaqis and Syeds consider themselves superiors to other Muslims

    @t_for_talli

    Syeds don't consider themselves as 'superiors', they get respect from zealousts. "Most" syeds are fake.

    What is 'Saddiqui's' , never heard of it.

    No sorry no cast system in Pakistan


    Allah's (SWT) Messenger eradicated the problem of racial or colour discrimination so successfully that superiority is not by birth or colour or blood, but by God-fearing and righteousness.


    No caste system

    You are black skinned or white skinned when you pray in mosque its same and so their is no caste system :P

    There is rich / poor but no caste :P not India
    On my passport says Pakistani , no cast mentioned

    Similarly when I go to restaurant I do not ask who made my food or check cast of who prepared my food etc

    Nor when I apply for apartment rental no one denies me residence based no my background , I pay rent sign lease I get property as long as I have job

    India: -> Importance of caste in passport renewal!
    (Lawyer's club India)

    From Indian gentleman experiencing difficulties

    Here is a story of Indian man whose grandfather died and he wanted to renew his passport , first thing the officer asked was his caste .. then his experience becomes bad

    In Pakistan when people had issues it was normally due to request for bribes but since we modernized our Passport system to digital format the process is MODERN and lightening fast

    The reason for post is not to disrespect but to shed light that we do not see caste as an issue in Pakistan as we do not have concept of caste as its considered illegal

    Pakistan's main issue is lack of education and availability of quality education for mases
    and poor quality of teachers in general at Senior Levels

    About as relevant as asking whether one is Shia or Sunni (not Ahmadiyya who officially get the boot). That is an individual's opinion, if reported he could be sacked or disciplined at the least.

    I am simply answering the question , no we do not have Caste system , as much as some would like to believe :)

    Shia / Sunni are muslims , ahmadiya are different religion however they are not caste just not Muslim.According to Pakistani Passport , and we respect the decision by our courts and lawmakers

    However its not a caste its just different religion

    It would be somewhat of caste if I had said Ahmadiya are only good for cleaning my car, or perhaps being servants in my home etc

    Normally all religions get equal rights to work in jobs so that is why I say their is no caste system in Pakistan

    Forcing a particular group to do meaningless jobs promotes the culture of caste , jobs are distributed between many regions and group of peoples

    Maybe in India that happens :omghaha:

    Whenever I see a Syed I automatically think "fake"...

    Yes caste system exists but only as surnames now...
    Where caste system might be truly practiced in Pakistan is in southeastern Sindh, but even there its not strict because of Islamic customs.
