Before five thousand years, there were no castes among original inhabitants in India. Budhism governed people of this Harrappan Civilization, known as Nags. Aryans came, snatched power from them through capricious means. They became divided into two groups, namely, Brahmans and Thakurs. Applying manipulative mechanisms through scriptures, society became composed of seven classes, viz. Brahmans, Thakurs, Vaishya, and Shudras, placed in touchable, untouchables, and others category. This system codified in Manusmiriti became law, making castes central to India. Paasees, previously Nags, now became Bharshiv. They became a martial community during Gupta period, ruling Avadh region in 14th century A.D. As Nags, Brarshiv, Rajapaasees, Hindus, and criminals at different stages in history, they fought Aryans, Kushans, Thakurs, Muslims and British respectively. Uttar Pradesh, dominated by Paasee was placed under Jarayam Act, a repressive law, in 1924 and was repealed in 1952. Thus, Paasees attained freedom in 1952 instead of 1947. Paasees of Uttar Pradesh should use Rajapaasee as their surname for specific identity, without being objects in political vote market.
