    Mark Lindley
    ABSTRACT
    : Gandhi’s views in regard to basic aspects of the caste system changed in the last years of his life. In the 1920she had held that every Hindu “must follow the hereditary profession” and that “prohibition of intermarriage” between people of different varnas was “necessary for a rapid evolution of the soul.” But later he gradually became “a social revolutionist,” advocating intermarriage between Brahmins and Untouchables in order to dismantle the caste system “root and branch,” and acknowledging that “When all become casteless, monopoly of occupations would go.” The changes were due in part to the influence of two opponents of the caste system whose integrity he held in high regard: Ambedkar and Gora. His view of marriage between people of different religious affiliations underwent a similar change.

    I found this site that offers multiple reasons for wearing the hijab/head scarf. Nothing “to avoid unwanted attention” was mentioned. http://religiondispatches.org/17-reasons-why-women-wear-headscarves/

    Your comment prompted me to do a little research. I found this site that offers multiple reasons for wearing the hijab/head scarf. Nothing “to avoid unwanted attention” was mentioned. http://religiondispatches.org/17-reasons-why-women-wear-headscarves/
