Comment from I. Mallikarjuna Sharma on the article "Caste and Class"

A traditional type of upper caste bashing and Brahmin baiting Marxist oriented article based on dated statistics from a highly partial and largely senseless Commission Report which based itself on 1931 Census figures! See this other side too: "Per capita income of various communities in Karnataka as per a statement of Finance Minister in the Assembly a few years back: Christians Rs. 1562/-; Vokkaligas: Rs.914/-; Muslims: Rs. 794/-; Schedule Castes: Rs. 688/-; Schedule Tribes: Rs. 577/- ; Brahmins: Rs. 537/-" So what is needed is a fresh impartial and scientific outlook and analysis based on quite recent or recent statistics depicting current realities.
