YES
His idea of brotherhood seems to have made him very critical of the old Indian cast system.

"Among the Hindus," Al-Beyrn says, "Institutions of this kind abound. We Muslims, of course, stand entirely on the other side of the question, considering all men as equals. ... This is the great obstacle which prevents any approach or understanding between Hindus and Muslims."

Caste = Corruption
As per "Communal Award" take your caste share of land FC(5-15%), BC(50%), SC/ST/Minorities(35-45%) and go build your own corruption/caste nation.
Your future generations will prosper (e.g former USSR republics).
