The purpose of this page is not to attack religion. The intention is to expose the betrayal of truth and also the injustice to human dignity in the name of religion.
1. PUNISHMENT FOR LOW CASTE HINDUS
The tongue of a Shudra, who spoke evil about a BRAHMIN should be cut off. A Shudra who dared to assume a position of equality with the first three castes was to be flogged. (Apastambha Darma Sutra III, 10-26)
If a Shudra overheard a recitation of the Vedas, molten tin was to be poured into his ears; if he repeated the Vedas his tongue should be cut and if he remembered Vedic hymns, his body was to be torn into pieces.
If a Shudra arrogantly teaches Brahmins Dharma, the king shall cause hot oil to be poured into his mouth and ears. (Manusmirthi 167-272)
2. THE WEALTHY BRAHMINS
Brahmins should not be taxed and should be maintained by the State. (Manusmirthi, 7-133)
That no collection of wealth was to be made by a Shudra, even though he may be capable, for a Shudra who has acquired wealth would pain a Brahmin, and that Brahmins may appropriate by force the property of the Shudra. (Manusmirthi, 10-129)
Even if a Shudra acquired wealth, he must always remain a slave. His main job is to wash the feet of the higher caste. (Panchvanish Brahmin, 3-1/11)
Even if a Shudra is learned and virtuous, he should not be given respect and honour. (Tulsidas in his Ramayana)
Slavery is inborn among the Shudras and no one can free them from it. (Manusmirthi, Chapter 8, Sloka 4, 14)
Sri Brahmin had intended from eternity that the Untouchables should be born slaves, live as slaves, and die as slaves. (Manusmirthi, Chpater 19, Sloka 413)
shravana, adhyana, arthapratishedhat smriteh ca (Brahma-Sutras 188.8.131.52)
The smrithi orderes that shudras must be prohibited from hearing, studying and understanding the Vedas.
4. FROM RAMAYANA
MEAT-EATING RAMA: When God Rama was told to go to the forest, he mournfully revealed to his mother: It has been ordained that I have to lose the kingdom, forego the princely comforts and the tasty MEAT-DISHES. (Ayodhya Kandam, Chapters 20, 26 and 94)
RAMA’S MANY WIVES: In Mr. C.R. SreenivasaIyengar’s translation of Valmiki Ramayan, it says:
Though Rama had married Sita to be the queen, he marrried many other wives for sexual pleasure in accordance with the royal customs. (Ayodhya Kandam, Chapter 8, Page 28)
RAMA’S DISRESPECT FOR HIS FATHER: Rama called his father “a FOOL, an IDIOT” (Ayodhya Kandam, Chapter 53)
RAMA’S CONTEMPT FOR WOMEN & LOW CASTES: Rama said “Women should not be trusted” and that “Secrets should not be confided to the wife”. (Ayodhya Kandam, Chapter 100)
Sambuka was slaim by Rama because he was making penance which was forbidden to him by Vedas as he was a Shudra. (Uttara Kandam, Chapter 76)
SITA: As soon as Sita stepped into Ravan’s palace, her love towards Ravan grew more. (Aranya Kandam, Chapter 54).
When at length Rama asked Sita to swear about her chastity, she declined and died. (Uttar Kandam, Chapter 97)
PORNOGRAPHY: Rama’s description of Sita’s beauty which is lewdly detailed (refer to C.R. SrinivasaIyengar’s translation of Aranya Kandam, Chapter 46)
In Kiskind Kandam, Rama explains to Lakshmana of his sexual experience with Sita
According to Ramayana, the Aryans (Brahmins) used to drink liquor (nine different kinds), eat meat, marry many wives and prostitution was an accepted way of life amongst the priests and gods.
Ramayana also recounts the story of King Dasharatha who, in order to have a baby son, made a big sacrifice (yaham) of sheep, cattle, horses, birds and snakes. He then delivered his three wives Kaushaliya, Sumatirai and Kaikeyi to three priests. These holy men, having fully satisfied their carnal desire, returned the ladies to the King. By this means, the King was able to have three sons – Ram, Lakshman and Bharat. (Bala Kandam, Chapter 14)
The Ramayan tells us much about the unlawful relationship of incest. It is not appropriate to put the details in this page. Please refer to Aranya Kandom, Chapter 45, Verses 122, 123, 124 & 125.
5. NON-VEGETARIAN FOOD
The eater who eats the flesh of those to be eaten does nothing bad, even if he does it day after day, for God himself created some to be eaten and some to be eater. (Manusmirthi, Chapter 5, Verse 30)
Eating meat is right for the sacrifice, this is traditionally known as a rule of the gods. (Manusmrithi, Chapter 5, Verse 31)
God himself created sacrificial animals for sacrifice, …., therefore killing in a sacrifice is not killing. (Manusmrithi, Chapter 5, Verse 39 & 40)
MAHABHARATA, Anushashan Parva chapter 88 narrates the discussion between Dharmaraj Yudhishthira and Pitamah Bhishma about what food one should offer to Pitris (ancestors) during the Shraddha (ceremony of dead) to keep them satisfied. Paragraph reads as follows:
“Yudhishthira said, “O thou of great puissance, tell me what that object is which, if dedicated to the Pitiris (dead ancestors), become inexhaustible! What Havi, again, (if offered) lasts for all time? What, indeed, is that which (if presented) becomes eternal?”
“Bhishma said, “Listen to me, O Yudhishthira, what those Havis are which persons conversant with the rituals of the Shraddha (the ceremony of dead) regard as suitable in view of Shraddha and what the fruits are that attach to each. With sesame seeds and rice and barely and Masha and water and roots and fruits, if given at Shraddhas, the pitris, O king, remain gratified for the period of a month. With fishes offered at Shraddhas, the pitris remain gratified for a period of two months. With the mutton they remain gratified for three months and with the hare for four months, with the flesh of the goat for five months, with the bacon (meat of pig) for six months, and with the flesh of birds for seven. With venison obtained from those deer that are called Prishata, they remaingratified for eight months, and with that obtained from the Ruru for nine months, and with the meat of Gavaya for ten months, With the meat of the bufffalo their gratification lasts for eleven months. With beef presented at the Shraddha, their gratification, it is said, lasts for a full year. Payasa mixed with ghee is as much acceptable to the pitris as beef. With the meat of Vadhrinasa (a large bull) the gratification of pitris lasts for twelve years. the flesh of rhinoceros, offered to the pitris on anniversaries of the lunar days on which they died, becomes inexhaustible. The potherb called Kalaska, the petals of kanchana flower, and meat of (red) goat also, thus offered, prove inexhaustible.
So but natural if you want to keep your ancestors satisfied forever, you should serve them the meat of red goat.
