Lord Budha, ‘Light of Asia’ and most divine a figure, was never the one to be confined to a caste as the world as a whole was his domain and he was humanity incarnate. Born around 6th century B.C., Gautam Budha was a Kshatriya, more popularly known as Rajputs and being son of king Siddodhan, his upbringing took place in Shakyan traditions as his father was of a Shakya sect amongst Kshatriyas ruling Kapilvastu. Gautam Budha himself is referred to as Shakyamuni. Later when Budhism was pioneered by Gautam Budha as a Sangh abandoning princely status and becoming himself a bhikshu moving from place to place seeking alms, his father Siddodhan had an objection contending that he should refrain from doing so as a Kshatriya can’t be supposed to live on alms. Gautam Budha’s reply to this was that as a Budhist he was neither a Kshatriya nor any other caste whatsoever, he belonged to a world where there were no caste barriers of any kind. Great Budha was not for any discrimination between a person and a person. Now that it is a total scenario of political domination on all counts, there are people to describe Gautam Budha as a non Kshatriya and that he belonged to a scheduled caste. No harm in belonging to a scheduled caste but there is no reason to far fetchedly over twisting the historical facts. One is supposed to be honest to history and no political mileage should be allowed to overtake the factual reality. The mission one leads is much more important than the caste which one belongs to. Those who aspire to honestly persue Budhism are the ones who practice equality based on a cause and not the caste. They are not to indulge in erasing history.
