Yesterday, @rohanreplies & his fellow classless Chamchas trolled me on this.

But I say this again - Dr. Ambedkar did refer the ‘#Manusmriti’ in drafting the ‘most significant legislation’ in the Constituent Assembly.

Let us look at the reference. It is quite interesting.

Section III of Vol.14 of ‘Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Writings and Speeches’ describes -

Dr.Ambedkar’s remarks during the ‘Discussion on 🔸The Hindu Code🔸After Return of the Bill from The Select Committee.

According to Dr. Ambedkar, this is the signicance of the #HinduCode 👇🏼

“There is no doubt that the two Smritikars whom I have mentioned— Yagnavalkya and Manu, rank the highest among the 137 who had tried their hands in framing Smritis.”

- Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, the then Law Minister of India to the Constituent Assembly in February 1949.

It's not 'good governance day'. It's #ManusmritiDahanDivas'.

I bet, a lot many Indians are not aware about the same. During the Mahad Satyagraha, Dr Ambedkar bravely showed #Manusmriti its place.
Mahad Satyagraha was a fight to assert the Dalits’ right to access "public water", and to embrace humanity and dignity.

For Dr Ambedkar—a staunch advocate of women’s rights and emancipation—it was a political action to burn #Manusmriti publicly.

On December 25, 1927, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar burned #Manusmriti as a symbol of rejection of the religious basis of #untouchability.

I have been so fed up with many Hindus propagating misinformation about #Manusmriti saying nobody has access to the authentic text, or that it was fabricated by British, etc, I thought it is a good idea to take a picture of printed books of Manusmriti I have with me.
Here is a link to Manusmriti with six commentaries all in Sanskrit. The commentaries included are: Medatithi, Sarvajna-Narayana, Kulluka, Raghavananda, Nandana, & Ramachandra, most of them lived before the British even set foot on India-…
Here is a link to Manusmriti (Moola verses) with English translation of Medatithi's commentary, translated by Ganganath Jha-…

Why people, even Brahmins hate Manusmriti? Have they even read it?
So I decided let me start posting it here. Lets see how it goes. #ManuSmriti
मनुमेकाग्रमासीनमभिगम्य महर्षयः ।
प्रतिपूज्य यथान्यायमिदं वचनमब्रुवन् ॥ १ ॥

The Great Sages, having approached Manu, paid their respect to him in due form, and finding him seated with mind calm and collected, addressed him these words.

Caste In #Hindutva (1/a)
There was No caste system in Sanatan Hindu till Islamic Rule.
All the Scriptures including #Manusmriti upheld "Varna" not the Caste. Next time Any left, Islamic-Xtian Sponsored Intellect say about the Caste, slap this thread on his/her face.
Caste In #Hindutva (1/b)
No where in Vedas mentioned "Caste" according to one's Birth {sic}
If "Varna" is static then there must not be any "code of conducts" for certain Varna. BUT there are code of conducts for 4 Varnas and the Varna Position is "Dynamic"
Caste In #Hindutva (1/c)
In #Manusmriti the 2nd chapter sloka 37, 40, 103, 168; 4th chapter 258 Even In #SrimadBhagwatGita it clearly mentioned there no superiority & Inferiority according to their BIRTH.

Our #Ambedkar Ji hangs his head in shame for this pic. He opposed Casteism, not Deities. He loved Vedas. How dare u insult our Deities and demonise our Babasaheb 😠

Those who are filling ur head with Hindu Hatred are ur real enemies. Open ur eyes.

#Ambedkar Ji's Views on Partition & #Hindus.

How perfectly right he was.

No one listened to him. Now currently we've reached exactly same situation which he despised. Image
#ambedkar Ji's Views on #Aryan Invasion #Shudras and #Vedas

Read his book "Who Were The Shudras?"

You'll not doubt his own book, do you? ImageImage

What is Dharma? - Universal Nature of Reality
What is Religion? - Belief & worship of divine power

@RSS4India @SadhguruJV @AnupamPKher @DrMohanBhagwat @Swamy39 @HinduDharma1
Since Sanatan Dharma is based on scientific concepts, it does not get into rhetorics, bias & isms

@RSS4India @SadhguruJV @AnupamPKher @DrMohanBhagwat @Swamy39 @HinduDharma1
India is a subcontinent which has been in existence since last 100 million years.

It's like South America, Australia, etc, which was split from the super continent Gondwana!

Traces of Humanity have been found in India since more than 10 million years…

வேத எதிர்ப்பாளர்களை அரசன் தனது எல்லையிலிருந்து வெளியேற்ற வேண்டும். (அத்.9: சுலோகம் 225)
வேத எதிர்ப்பாளர்கள் அன்றாடக் கடமைகளை செய்யாதவர்கள்; இவர்களின் பிறப்பே வீண்; திருட்டுத்தனமாக சாதி மாறிப் பிறந்தவர்கள்; வேதத்தை கேள்வி கேட்டு நிந்தனை செய்யும் துறவிகளுக்கும்
தற்கொலை செய்து கொண்டவர்களுக்கும் அவர்களின் ‘ஆத்மா’க்களுக்காக ‘தர்ப்பணம்’ (செத்தப் பிறகு ஆத்மா சாந்தியடைவதற்கான புரோகிதச் சடங்கு) செய்யக் கூடாது. (அத்.5; சுலோகம் 89)

Varna vyavastha practiced upto the Mahabharta period:

Manu’s social system all people had equal rights to join any of the varnas according to their merits nd vocations, irrespective of their parents profession.

System continued from Rigvedic period until Mahabharata(Geeta) period, Geeta clearly says:


The chaturvaranya (the four-class system) has been created on the basis of people’s vocations nd merits nd not on their birth nd parentage.
The whole community acquiring a new varna:

Besides individuals we also come across examples of a whole community or a large part of it leaving its earlier varna and acquiring a new one.

Caste Based Reservation in India Started in 2nd Century BC. In #Manusmriti - the law book of Brahmins all the laws were based on #Caste and no Merit was ever considered. It divided people into High & Low Castes on the basis of their birth and not on the basis of Merit.
Wealth, Political power, Spiritual leadership, Education, Ownership of Land, Trade and all lucrative aspects were reserved purely to the higher castes. This system of caste based discrimination entrenched in day today social life since ages.

|| धर्म और अधर्म ||

व्याकरण के नियमानुसार मनुष्य अथवा चराचर सब वस्तुमात्र जिसको धारण करते हैं, वह धर्म है।
यह धर्म का शाब्दिक अर्थ है।

धर्मशब्द सुखहेतु गुण, कर्म वा द्रव्य का वाचक अभीष्ट है, किन्तु दुःखहेतु गुणादि का वाचक नहीं।
जहाँ दुःख का हेतु धर्मशब्द आता है, वहाँ उसमें नञ् अव्यय संयुक्त करके अधर्म कहते हैं।
यजुर्वेद के ३१वें अध्याय में ‘यज्ञेन यज्ञमयजन्त देवास्तानि धर्माणि प्रथमान्यासन्॰’ यहाँ धर्मशब्द कर्म का पर्याय वाचक है।
#मनुस्मृति में धर्म

महर्षि मनु ने विश्व के आदि मानव धर्मशास्त्र में धर्म की महिमा और धर्म व अधर्म के लक्षणों के विषय मे लिखा हैं।
महर्षिमनु के अनुसार धर्म के दस लक्षण इस प्रकार हैं:

धृति: क्षमा दमोअस्तेयं शोचं इन्द्रिय निग्रह:।
धीर्विद्या सत्यमक्रोधो दशकं धर्म लक्षणं।। (६/९)

#Manusmriti Change of Varna:

Examples in history:

Hundreds of examples from Bharatiya history can be cited in support of the fact that Varna Vyavastha is based on an individual’s vocation andaction, and has nothing to do with his birth.
1. Aiterya Rishi was the son of Das. But he became a "उच्च कोटि" Brahmin and composed Aiterya Brahmana and Aiterya Upanishad.
Aiterya Brahman Grantha is considered to be very important to understand the Rigveda.
2. Raja Vishvamitra who- was born of Kshatriya parents became a Brahmarshi.

#thread: The position of women in the #Manusmriti

Women are held in highest esteem

It is clear from the internal evidence of the Manusmriti that the anti-women picture of Manu presented by some is baseless and contrary to the facts.
(1/n) Image
The provisions concerning women in Manu have been inspired by his sense of respect, justice and goodwill and his concern for their securityand equality with men. Here are some facts of evidence in support: -

Maharshi Manu is the first great man of the world to have given the society the highest ideal about women which adds remarkably to the dignity’, status and self-respect of women.

Thread:- #Manu & #Manusmriti

"If your wife is unyielding for sex, strike with stick or hand and curse her!"

Wife Beating and #MaritalRape in Vedic Literature: Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 6.4.7

Original Sanskrit verse & Commentary by Adi Shankara (Shankara Bhasya) translated into English by Swami Madhavananda:
One, The Early Upanishads are considered Vedic Literature attached to Veda Samhitas. Two, Context is SEX; Procreation OR not; spelled out in 6.4.10-11. Three, The interpretation "buy her over with ornaments" is from Shankara Bhasya, & THIS version was used.
Is he @MisraNityanand dishonest or just plain ignorant? He goes till verse 8 of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 6.4 & concludes "context is procreation only (needed for life)". Go further till 10 & 11. Husband chants "may she not conceive!" 6.4.10. Context is Sex.
