Caste Marriage

I am a Hindu, I am avid follower of lord Shiva, Me and a Lingayat girl are in Love but her Mom is not approving for marriage just because I am not a Lingayat.

I heard stories about basavanthappa from my mom during my childhood., Anubhava Mantapthpa equal rights for all from all cultural backgrounds.. I don't know how to say this to them.. they dont even want to see my face..

Is there any books i can take as reference and speak with them stating that to them. Thank you. My apologies for this silly question in this forum where it helps people to realization of god.

Ligayat don't understand Basavanna, they just showcase him and follow even hierarchy, which was the main purpose this dharma was created, to remove hierarchy.
Basavanna wanted to remove hierarchy but these followers of Basava made Hiremath, who is higher order in lingayat.

Now Basavanna supported intercaste marriage you must not only be allowed but be encouraged to marry her.

And these lingayats are no where following single principle of Basavanna.

I request all ligayats to please don't claim themselves belong to this great religion until you could really know what you are ought to follow and lead a life of evil less, equated and unbiased intellectualism.
