Starting a thread on #कामसूत्रम् (1/n)

I will dismantle vile propaganda to denounce this wonderful text as a sex manual

Before I start, read this article by me to understand कामसूत्र as a शास्त्र…

Hindi version -…
Lack of basic information leads to false propaganda (see the tweet in the image)

कामसूत्र is not written by Richard Burton. Authorship is with वात्स्यायन (~300 BCE) - a well known fact

Person who doesn't know such basic info has made a video to denounce this text !!
In fact, title of Burton's translation work in 1883 was - Kamasutra of Vatsyayana

Burton himself has acknowledged that this is not his work but is of वात्स्यायन and Burton has just translated it

So, saying "Burton written Kamasutra" is an agenda driven white lie.
Another propaganda is (screenshot) - No evidence of वात्स्यायन writing कामसूत्र.

Answer -
In #कामसूत्रम् text, वात्स्यायन has mentioned "इति वात्स्यायनः" and put his views at places

वात्स्यायन of न्यायसूत्र is respected but of कामसूत्रम् is fake - is only a foolishness
Moreover, the earliest ref. of वात्स्यायन is found in #पञ्चतन्त्रम् , #वासवदत्ता (सुबन्धु) and #नाट्यशास्त्रम् (भरतमुनि)

These all #Sanskrit works r not only ancient but respected too. In all these works, वात्स्यायन is related to काम only

Propagandists don't know anything
Propagandist doesn't know about the antiquity of कामसूत्र (see earlier tweet) so he goes on paddling lies

His world is limited to दयानन्द सरस्वती and विवेकानंद.

Commenting on every शास्त्र is not possible for anybody. Without अधिकार, a wise person will also not attempt it.
Pic 1 (Propaganda) - Use of selective portion of #कामसूत्रम् (w/o context) to defame the text

Pic 2 - Truth with context and clarity

This person doesn't know basics of विवाह-संस्कार but ready to burn शास्त्र
Pic 1 - Another selective quoting w/o understanding context

Pic 2 - Truth with context and clarity

Take away -
Reading commentary of शास्त्र is vital. Idiots always ignore it.
Look at this another handle who, w/o any knowledge of संस्कृत/शास्त्र paddling her vile propaganda and defaming #कामसूत्रम्

Such pathetic idiots r supporting other agenda paddlers and openly insulting the beautiful heritage of my country.

Irony is - People r hailing them.
These idiots not only defame कामसूत्रम् but also use derogatory words for others Indians who know the essence of शास्त्र.

Openly they are calling our great sages perverts and declaring शास्त्र as a toilet paper.

Irony is - Such people r glorified in society.
After defaming कामसूत्र and मनुस्मृति, now this धूर्त is targeting to अर्थशास्त्र of कौटिल्य.

He and his gang are on a serious mission to damage the धार्मिक pillar of our nation by discarding every ancient text as fake/tampered

How vicious this person is !
Too much ignorance on manuscript of #कामसूत्रम् by @SanjeevSanskrit

Ref. Indian Epigraphy (DC Sircar), p101 (pic 2)

King of #Gujarat in 13th c. CE already had the manuscript of कामसूत्र in his library which he gave to यशोधर who then composed जयमंगला टिका available today.
Also clear ref. of वात्स्यायन, with many other greats, is also found in an #Inscription from #Combodia of king यशोवर्मा (end of 9th c. CE).

Ref. : Indian Epigraphy (DC Sircar), p217

This proves, वात्स्यायन & #कामसूत्रम् were celebrated out of #India too
Within few hours, due to evidence (12th tweet above), propagandist had to change his stand about Manuscript of कामसूत्र. From 16th (Lodhi) to 12th century (Ghori)

In 12th century, #Rajputs were ruling, not Ghori

A foolish attempt to associate कामसूत्र with #Islam (pic 3)
Old wine in new bottle ... See 7th tweet in this thread. He tweeted the same "selective quoting" last year and now today too.

In 7th tweet, I have already dismantle this claim.

He is trying again to link a Hindu text with Islam (sultanate period) w/o evidence
This propagandist must have passed his History exams by unfair means.

Look at his "historical imbalance" to link a Hindu text कामसूत्र to Islam - Lodhi to Ghori to now Ghazni (11th to 16th century).

The same bluffing again and again. How many times one can refute it ? 😊
