Was Holika Dalit?

Claim: Holi is premised on the burning of Holika – a Bahujan woman. The Vedic and Puranic stories which dictate our festivals rely on suppressing the story of the lower castes, and it is they who are painted as asuras.

Fact: Holika was not a Bahujan woman, she was a Kattar Brahman woman. She was the daughter of the great Brahman sage Kashyapa. The burning of Holika has no caste angle.
