Caste atrocities happen even today. There is ample historical record of mistreatment of lower castes, they happened in the past as well, on a much much larger scale.We teach false history. No where there were so many atrocities done(not denyingbthey were not there but they were mostly in period when british created caste system).
Modern caste dynamics are complex, since the constitution has empowered the lower most strata to an extent and inter-caste clashes are not a one-way street anymore. It is specially complex where class and caste issues intersect.
Not condoning or condemning religious conversions, but good luck trying to stop them without acknowledging the casteist fault-lines in Indian society.
