Gender, Religion and Caste are the three pillars on which social divisions and inequalities of human civilisations lay .

  • Gender division is based on social expectations and stereotypes and not on biology .
  • Unlike gender differences, religious differences are often expressed in the field of politics.
  • The use of religion in politics is called communal politics. It is based on the idea that religion is the principal basis of a social community.
  • There is no official religion in the Indian state. The constitution provides to all individuals and communities freedom to profess, practice, and propagate any religion, or not to follow any.
  • The caste system was based on the exclusion of and discrimination against the ‘outcast’ groups.
  • Casteism is rooted in the belief that caste is the sole basis of a social community.
  • It is not politics that caste gets caste-ridden, it is the caste that gets politicized.
