Q.

Why everyone talk only about the caste system among Hindu's. There are 13 castes, fighting, killing, and annihilating each other in Islam. There are 146 caste in Christianity in Kerala and more than 1400 castes among US christians.

This is our weakness,Leave aside,caste;In Great Britain,christains were waging war against each other on the basis of their subsect,viz.,Protestant and catholic for separate Nation.(IRA).In Iraq,bloody fighting is going on between two groups of Muslims,Shias and Sunnies;Lakhs of lives have been lost due to group clashes in Muslim countries &christain countries in recent times.But these countries never highlighted it publically.But in India, we only quarrel as brothers of same religion,in very few cases,it turned out to be fatal,that too in small numbers.It may be noted that political parties ,for their personal gain,encourage caste division &instigate violence.Hindus should be proud of their tolerance.

Could you please provide the evidences from Quran & Authentic Hadiths?

Infact the Quran says in Surah Maidah, Ch. No.5, V. No. 32, thatIf anyone kills a person unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole nation all the people. And if any person saves a life, it is as though he has saved the whole of humankind all the people. The Quran says that if any person kills any human being whether it be a Muslim or Non Muslim it does not specify the race or caste or colour or creed If any person kills any human being, unless it be for murder, or for spreading mischief in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity. And if any one saves an human being, whether it be a Muslim or Non Muslim, from any caste, colour or creed, it as though he has saved the whole of humankind.

First find out what is cast, there are no casts like hindus either in Christianity or Islam.A christian and Muslim can join any other group among them, but none can join to Brahmin or Kshathriya.

You need to modify your question. Hindu is the only cast. There are no casts in Islam, Christanity or so, because these are Religions. The different groups in Religions are denominations. A hindu can become a christain or muslim, but not these both can become hindus, because hindu is by birth ( even the children of christains borne of Christain parents are not christains till the are baptized and become members of the Church.). So the first part of your questions gets answered. This is the first time I came to know that there ar 146 denominations in Kerala christains and 1400 in US. Wonderful. Kindly give me the source of this information. Except the Roman Catholics all over the world, the groups of protestants spread all around the globe the groups are numbered by the titles of congregations founded mostly by their leaders, but their identities are not recognized separately, except few who had the basic protestant entity like Orthdox, Patacosts, Witnesses of Jahova, 7thday Adventivist ...more
