It is said that wherever the people of India reach, casteism reaches there. For a long time people used to talk like this. But for the last few years, this issue has heated up in America so much that now steps have been started to ban the caste system there. Race is now officially included in the discrimination policy at the University of California’s Davis Campus. Earlier many students there had complained that they had to face discrimination due to caste in the university. According to the information revealed now, in September last, the policies of this campus of the university were amended. Under the new rules, now those students or teachers who feel that they are being discriminated against because of their caste will now be able to file a complaint officially. According to an American newspaper, several students of this campus started raising the demand for changes in the rules there after they noticed that people in the chat group were sending memes that joke on the basis of caste. It was also seen that there South Asian people are asking each other’s caste.

This matter first came to the fore in 2015. Then a student who had gone to the US from Nepal complained that his family members had even faced violence in Nepal on several occasions because they belonged to an alleged low caste. But he never thought that he would have to face caste discrimination in America too. The student had told the media that during his interactions with other South Asians, he was reminded of caste in everything from restaurants to community events. Since then, when the caste system was discussed in America, then it was discussed. In many places a group of students started organizing themselves. An anti-caste association was also established. Today it has branches in 23 campuses. But only the Davis-based campus has changed the rules so far. But the students running the campaign are happy with this. He says that this is a big step towards the acceptance of the problem of caste discrimination in America. This sends the message that this is a problem that the time has come to deal with it.
