Not done: as you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to any article. - Arjayay (talk) 08:33, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
I have just reverted an edit that cited Edgar Thurston. I'm pretty sure that this is far from being the first occasion that he has been removed from this article. The source has been repeatedly rejected on the grounds of reliability, across an entire swathe of articles relating to South Indian communities: he was a scientific racist, untrained in ethnography, unable to speak the local languages and reliant mostly upon a few Brahmins whose own biases he did not take into account. - Sitush (talk) 08:34, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
