The various castes are no cause of honour. God Almighty has only made these castes a means of recognition. In these days, even aft er four generations, it becomes difficult to confirm a person’s lineage. It does not behove a righteous person to fall into disputes over caste. Allah the Exalted has decreed that castes are no means of preference in His estimation. True honour and greatness comes from righteousness alone.
(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 1, p. 36)
