Myth 4: Vedas have selfish prayers

Vedas have nothing but selfish prayers. For example, Rigveda 3.53.14 calls for looting people of other countries.

किं ते कर्ण्वन्ति कीकटेषु गावो नाशिरं दुह्रे न तपन्तिघर्मम |
आ नो भर परमगन्दस्य वेदो नैचाशाखं मघवन्रन्धया नः ||

हे इन्द्र, अनार्य देशों के कीकट वासियों की गौओं का तुम्हे क्या लाभ है? उनका दूध सोम में मिला कर तुम पी नहीं सकते. उन गौओं को यहाँ लाओ. परमगन्द (उनके राजा), की संपत्ति हमारे पास आजाए. नीच वंश वालों का धन हमें दो. [ऋग्वेद ३/५३/१४]

ये अनार्यों के धन और संपत्ति को लूटने की कैसी प्राथना वेदों में की गई है?

‘कीकट’ शब्द की व्याख्या करते हुए यास्क आचार्य ने अपनी पुस्तक ‘निरुक्त’ में लिखा है,

कीकटा नाम देशो अनार्यनिवासः [निरुक्त ६/३२]

अर्थात कीकट वह देश है जहां अनार्यों का निवास है. इस पर टिप्पणी करते हुए प्रसिद्ध आर्यसमाजी विद्वान पं. राजाराम शास्त्री ने लिखा है- “कीकट अनार्य जाती थी, जो बिहार में कभी रहती थी, जिस के नाम पर बिहार का नाम कीकट है.” (निरुक्त, पृ. ३२१, १९१४ ई.). स्वामी दयानंद ने ‘कीकटाः’ का अर्थ करते हुए लिखा है-

“अनार्य के देश में रहने वाले मलेच्छ ”

तो पंडित जी अब आप ही फेसला कीजिये कि ये दूसरों का धन लूटने की स्वार्थी प्रार्थना है या नहीं. मैंने केवल एक उदाहरण दिया अन्यथा ऐसी स्वार्थी प्रार्थनाओं के अतिरिक्त वेदों में कुछ और है भी नहीं.


1. Another shameless act of fraud. Am getting tired and bored countering such stupid allegations now. Perhaps we deserve more intellectual haters.

2. When it has been clearly established that Anarya means terrorist and the ‘allegators’ have themselves given reference from Nirukta and Swami Dayanand (I am not sure of later source), where is the confusion?

The mantras prays that Cows that give milk and sources of prosperity have no utility in places where terrorists thrive. They be better put to use for prosperity of noble people.

3. In other words, if Al-Qaeda or Maoists have lots of weapons and wealth, these better come to peaceful people than stay with them. This means that the country should adopt policies that ensure that wealth goes to deserving people and not criminals and terrorists. It is on basis of such mantra that all civilized nations put strict control and security on distribution of currency and critical resources.

4. Vedas also have prayers that call for reformation of terrorists into civilized beings. Refer Rigveda 6.22.10 that states that ‘Daas should be made ‘Arya’. How could it be possible if these were to denote races or specific geographies?

Hence, the whole allegation is as baseless as chair without legs.

Myth 5: Vedas imprison married women

Vedas provide no option of divorce for women and force them to tolerate the husband regardless of his deeds. Its the Hindu Law that allows divorce rights to women.

हिन्दू विवाह अधिनियम,१९५५ के अनुसार विशेष स्थितियों में, यथा दुष्ट स्वभाव, मूर्ख, व्यभिचारी, नामर्द होने पर स्त्री अपने पति को तलाक़ दे सकती है. लेकिन हिन्दू धर्म में तलाक़ का कोई प्रावधान नहीं है. पति चाहे दुष्ट स्वभाव वाला, मूर्ख, और रोगी हो तब भी स्त्री नहीं छोड़ सकती. उसे अपने ही पति के साथ जीना और मरना है.
