Why not? Vedas encourage women to contribute to society through economic activities, military, politics, science, technology, research, education. In fact Vedas assert that unless women take serious leadership role in all crucial activities of human civilization, there would be anarchy and misery.

Answer 1: This is not true. First there is no concept of order in marital relations in Vedas. Second, Niyog was a social custom for an emergency situation which was applicable only when all other options of getting a child – including adoption – had been exhausted and getting a… Read more »

1. You have raised the doubt so you must know the mantra (not shloka). Otherwise what is the purpose of this discussion 2. Vedas will not talk about things like divorce and khula and coming back to old husband after accidental talaq once a woman had sex with another husband.… Read more »

Please note that this site is not about discussing non-existent social customs. I believe you are in wrong place to discuss this topic. Agniveer has clearly mentioned that Vedas are beyond social customs and rituals. If, however, you find a significant number of people practicing Niyog or polygamy or sex-slavery… Read more »

Understand that Vedas differ from other texts in the sense that Vedas would provide principles and guidelines but not force specific applications. That is why Vedas are relevant to all locations… Read more »

@Redterror : Besides , the Rik Veda also say that if at all the women has taken a second man as the new husband(under the condition of first husband being impotent), her first husband cannot have any physical relation with her and he acts as her brother in relation.

Good points about ‘women in Vedas’ have been raised in this articles, but some more work is required. Today also, several people are misquoting several things from Vedas on the basis of rejected translations.

Merve is a Fundamentalist Christian who's only intent is to degrade the great Vedas. It is not unsual to see Christians making such proposterous claims while they don't read the Bible and see what kind of things the Bible writes about women.

Agniveer, I admit that there is wife beating in Quran. But there is wife beating in Upanishads also.

Namaste So you agree that Quran has wife-beating. Can you proclaim that you reject the Quran because it supports wife-beating? As for your translation of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad. first thing is that for us only Vedas are evidence. Other texts including Brahmans, Upanishads, Ramayan, Mahabharat, whatever are evidence only if they… Read more »

Agniveer, I am aware that the Vedic scriptures are classified into Shruti & Smriti, in which Shruti is the Original and Authentic. If so then both Vedas & Upanishads come under Shruti only. Can we believe in Upanishads, being from Shruti canon? Kindly explain me what exactly is the difference… Read more »

Dear Vimal,

Shruti refer only to Veda Samhitas. No other text is part of it. Everything else is Smriti. Among Upanishads, only Ishopanishad is part of Vedas (Chapter 40 of yajurveda) and hence is Shruti. Everything else is Smriti.

Refer the previous comment. There is no need for us to search for translations because we are allied to Vedas and Vedas alone, and not to any other text. So kindly bring evidence from Vedas alone. Not the Upanishads whom we ourselves claim to be true only to extent that… Read more »

Thanks for bringing that up. And no it is not Vedic duty. No where does it say women leave their home for the man. Or is it true the other way around. It says both should come together. Whether it is in the woman’s or man’s house.
