A thread by Aabhas Maldahiyar 🇮🇳
n #SadarPranam to Ishwara within @t_d_h_nair ji. I’m sorry but before I expln,hw u have made fool of urself by quoting Martin Haug’s interpretation for “Aitareya Brahmanam”, let me show u mirror for “Niars” & “cow meat”. Read the string & respond if u have enuf substance.
n Prema A. Kurien mentions in her book “Kaleidoscopic Ethnicity: International Migration and the Reconstruction of …” that Nayars avoided beef & even lamb meat to great extent. Check this snippet (pg no 124).
n While being inducted into the military,a Nair warrior having finished studying the art of warfare from Kalari took oath with King as primary witness to protect “Brahmins” & “cows”. This is documented by Duarte Barbosa, a 16th century Portuguese writer.
n Zamorins, the Nair kings of Calicut had taken a similar oath before their royal coronation. Check snippet. Ref: The Zamorins Of Calicut
by Krishna Ayyar, K.V. Pg 124
n @t_d_h_nair ji,Nairs r not “cow meat” eater by culture nor is Kerala. The things are quite clear frm the refs above but it will get evn more interesting if I tell u that as per local folklore Raja of Cochin, Rama Varma Shaktan Thampuran executed a Muslim who had killed a cow. n The Rama Varma had refused to observe Shivaratri since the Muslim had killed the cow on that day. Aren’t you aware of this folklore Ravi Nair ji? Come on, don’t kid me that you don’t know it. So now let me give you account of how “been eating” became a part of Kerala. Read 👇🏼 n The culture of “Beef eating” touched Kerala in 1788 when Tipu Sultan ordered forced circumcision and consumption of beef to prove their conversion to Islam.
I draw this snippet & evidence from book “Asiatic Researches/Vol 5, pg 33”. Link: (books.google.com/books/about/As…)
n @t_d_h_nair I’ll explain shortly that what are the errors in “translation” of Martin Haug’s for “Aitareya Brahmanam”, that you have used to prove that Vedas support “cow meat” consumption. If you would be man of grace, then pl apologise shud u b unable to prove ur claim now.
