Poorly referenced[edit]

I have to admit, this is a poorly maintained a referenced article. I don't know why this talk page has been previously deleted. Can't see the history. How can anyone talk about some changes if there's no talk page to start with? =S

In places like in India or Pakistan, they are mostly stratified societies and they have castes which are "condemned" or the "untouchables". (talk) 11:56, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

It's in bad shape[edit]

I'm sorry to say, but whoever wrote this made several serious mistakes. A lot of text is broken, and I have no clue how much is actually lost. I fixed a few myself, but there's probably some stuff missing. Not only that, but I think it should be extended. All the section 'In films and literature' looks at is a minor explanation as to commonplace elements of the outcast, looks at a exactly two characters, then ends. Hell, there's ZERO references here, as stated above. It's in really bad shape. (talk) 15:29, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Did anyone even bother to make any decent changes? Eman9405 (talk) 23:59, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
I would love to help out but I would not even know where to start here, it seems like a muddle, an assortment of bits heaped together. The bit on Pariah is not entirely accurate, as it does not correspond to facts presented in the article on Paraiyars. I think it should be noted that the Paraiyar were not always a low caste of society, they were quite important members of society in the middle ages.

Is there a case for merging parts of this article into Social_rejection? Kaleeyed (talk) 16:08, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
