Caste discrimination legislation

3 hours
First broadcast:
Monday 04 March 2013

Join the debate with Nihal at 10. He's asking, do we need a law in the UK to stop caste discrimination? The House of Lords is discussing whether it should be made illegal to discriminate on grounds of caste. Campaigners are holding a rally outside parliament to support the move. Those in charge of the rally say many people face prejudice and abuse here because they are considered to be of a low caste. What's been your experience, has this happened to you? Have you been barred from a Gurdwara or Temple because of your caste? How about jobs? Have you been discriminated against in the workplace. After 11, broadcaster Aasmah Mir talks about her website Cracking Curries. And later in the hour, what's the best place to keep your gold? We're asking this because NatWest bank has lost a pensioner's safety deposit box which she said contained heirlooms worth £20,000.
