Strange Rules & Cruelties in Hindu Scriptures

14 strange Rules and Cruelties in Hindu scriptures –

If a person of lower caste adopts the occupation of a higher caste, the king ought to deprive him of all his property and expel him from his kingdom. (Manusmriti, X: 96)

If a Shudra (lowest caste member) dares to give moral lessons to a Brahmin, the king is to get him punished by pouring hot oil in his ear and mouth. (Manusmriti, VII: 272)

Similarly, if a Shudra occupies the same seat as a Brahmin, he is to be punished by branding his waist (with hot rod) or getting his buttocks cut! (Manusmriti, VIII: 281)

Even if the husband is morally degraded, engaged in an affair with another woman and is devoid of knowledge and other qualities, the wife must treat him like a god. (Manusmriti, V: 154)

Women should never be allowed by their guardians to act independently. (Manusmriti, IX: 2)

If a person of lower varna (caste) has sexual intercourse with a woman of higher varna, with or without her consent, he is to be killed. (Manusmriti, VIII: 366)

If a Brahmin (highest caste) abuses a Shudra (lowest caste), he is to be fined mildly, but if a Shudra abuses a Brahmin, he is to be killed. (Manusmriti, VIII: 267/268)

If a Brahmin (highest caste) kills a Shudra (lowest caste), he is to perform penance by killing a cat, frog, owl or crow, etc. (Manusmriti, XI: 131)

Non-believers, including free thinkers, rationalists and Buddhists, are not to be entertained respectfully as guests;though, mercifully, they may be given food. (Manusmriti, MS IV: 30)

The families of non-believers are destroyed sooner than later. (Manusmriti, MS III: 65)

If a woman should not grant her man his desire, he should bribe her.If she still does not grant him his desire, he should hit her with a stick or with his hand, and overcome her, saying: ‘With power, with glory I take away your glory!’ Thus she becomes inglorious. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 6.4.7)

It is the highest duty of the woman to burn herself after her husband. (Brahma Purana 80.75)

When a woman, proud of her relations [or abilities] deceives her husband (with another man), then the king should [ensure that] she be torn apart by dogs in place much frequented by people. And the evil man should be burnt in a bed of red-hot iron. (Manusmriti, MS VIII: 371/372)

Offering presents (to a woman), romping (with her), touching her ornaments and dress, sitting with her on a bed, all these acts are considered adulterous acts. (Manusmriti, MS VIII: 357)

  1. Hii.. i checked the manusmiti to find the 2nd quote @ http://sanskritdocuments.org/all_pdf/manusmriti.pdf

    “If a Shudra (lowest caste member) dares to give moral lessons to a Brahmin, the king is to get him punished by pouring hot oil in his ear and mouth. (Manusmriti, VII: 272)”

    But i couldnt find such a sentance in it.
    Also i could find only 226 sentances in the 7th chapter

  2. Anywayz wots bout the others? you cant find the second.. but have you found the others? wot u say bro?
    and one more thing, all scriptures are not same. different writers put different words and meanings as they like. put same scripture from different writers and u can see the difference bro.
    and also check some godly stories and scripts 10 years ago and now check them. many mistakes are edited as the fools of stone age made.
    and bro you cant find one line so you are commenting here, bro you found many bout the cruelty beside the number 2. then wot u say?
    i think you already shut-off your antenna. think. use your brains.

  3. Absolutely true @AB
    Mr. Safeer you cant find the 2nd para, that means you found the others.
    why dont you say about them? or maybe you dont think its logic to read sumthing without fingering. what your humanity says mr. sabeer? beside number2 others are true and do you support it?
    maybe you will be happy reading other posts on hinduism and dont be upset lol that you didnt found the 2nd para. this applies to GOD also, nobody found him. hahahhahah.
    so be happy at-least you found the others and you will start thinking about the subject of CRUEL RELIGIONS. dude vote for BROTHERHOOD NOT EVIL RELIGIONS WHICH SEPARATES PEOPLE.
    atleast i am happy that someone has started this kinda blog to STOP THE POISON OF RELIGIONS. BE ONE. UNITED IS THE POWER.
    THUMBS UP FOR THIS BLOG#!
