Thank you for your question

As you mentioned,  in Islam there is nothing like class or cast difference.  The best person in the eyes of Allah s.w.t is the one who has taqwa (piety).

According to Islamic teachings,there is nothing wrong in marrying a person from a lower cast as long as he is a good and pious person. Rather Islam encourages people to do so.

From what I have understood from your question is  that it seems that  you are  well aware of the  Islamic opinion regarding this issue but you have a problem with what people will say about you marrying a person from a lower cast.

Dear sister to change people’s minds has never been very easy. If you are sure  that your actions are in accordance with the Islamic teachings and  that your Lord is pleased  with what you are doing,there is nothing to worry about.

Have trust on Allah and be strong. He will surely help you.
