Hindu Council UK Comments on the NIESR publication

Comments on the NIESR publication
Caste discrimination and harassment in Great Britain

Hilary Metcalf and Heather Rolfe
December 2010

Response from Hindu Council UK:


1. It is a great pity that during the passage of The Equality Bill through Parliament, having acknowledged that the available evidence did not indicate that caste discrimination was a significant problem in Britain in the areas covered by discrimination legislation, The Parliament proceeded to accept an amendment to The Equality Bill by inserting a new provision to include caste to be an aspect of Race by a Ministerial decision. By doing so, the Act which was supposedly designed to simplify and streamline discrimination law in Britain seems to have defeated this very objective by including the concept of caste that has eluded clear definition in common parlance, let alone in legal terms.
