Statements in Wikipedia articles must usually be verifiable by reference to reliable sources. Lepel Griffin and his ilk from the British Raj era are not reliable. This has long been the consensus of the community across the entire spectrum of caste articles etc, so please do not introduce such sources to this article. Find something modern and, preferably, academic. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 03:57, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
Aside from again removing Griffin, who was reintroduced to this article some time after 21 August 2016, I have had to revert to before that date because of this material in the lead. It makes no sense and is clear WP:PUFFERY. It Sikh Rajputs were Rajput princes who converted, who were the other (peasant etc) Sikhs who they allegedly protected? It is completely illogical, not least because not all Rajputs were princes. If you think that the sources really do say this then please provide a quotation from them. - Sitush (talk) 16:07, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
IP contributors keep adding this. The problem is, although it is phrased in a way that looks like it has been copy/pasted from somewhere, it does not appear to be in the cited sources. Please read WP:V. - Sitush (talk) 10:19, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
