There is a lot of talk which was initiated by (so-called) western scholars with evil intention to demean our shastras, our dev bhASa sanskrit, our purANas, smritis and grihya sUtra. This was not the work of one man or a few bunch of ontologists. This work was well planned strategy of British East India Company.
This page is intended to expose their evil intentions. The extracts are taken from the book "The True History and the Religion of India: An Encyclopedia of Authentic Hinduism" by dharm Chakravarti H. D. Swami Prakashanand Saraswati (Read more about author)
This is a *must read* book for every sincere seeker, specially bhArtiya brothers and sisters.
This is the first time in 400 years that such literature has been produced which gives the true vision of authentic Hinduism and details its continuous history of trillions of years with scientific evidences.
This book exposes the evil intentions by westerners. Swami ji has given authentic proofs along with excerpts of letters and publications published by westerners portraying our dharma and shastras in a demeaning way.
I will try to give some info about their actual 'opinion' about our shastra-s.
Disclaimer: I am not of the opinion that ALL westerners are biased against India and our shastras. There are good people and bad people everywhere. But certain people have elephant teeths. Just want to expose them as many take their opinions as genuine. No matter how much they are skilled, when the intention itself is not noble, the enquiry and the direction of thinking cannot be. We should not follow their guidelines no matter how much impressive they seem to be. Only noble, selfless intentions can yield good results.
Britishers in a quest to rule us have done a lot of conspiracies to damage our social, cultural, economic and religious systems. bhArata varSha, also known as Aryavart is the whole land beginning from foot of himAlaya-s to indian ocean. Britishers realized that our culture and spiritual base was so strong that it is not possible to convert people just by giving lectures on Bible. They concluded that the only way to push our way of life, and rule them was to demean their backbone - spirituality. To carry out their plan, they created Asiatic society and hired many professionals who were send to India with sole purpose of demeaning and denigrate our religious philosophy as inferior, mythology, primitive, supporting animal and human sacrifice, imaginative and full of superstitions.
Then began a period of collecting manuscripts and then interpret them in derogatory way. They also paidlofty amount to Max Muller, a german philologist, who is often credited of interpreting veda-s and bringing them to west and general public. MAx Muller was also one of them who purposefully interpreted our shastra-s in derogatory way. Other members of Asiatic Society were
Max Muller - Translation of rg veda in demeaning way and other articles tragetting our shastras to degrade them.
Sir William Jones
J. D. Peterson
H.H. Wilson - Translation of Vishnu PurANa in demeaning way
F.E. Partiger - Critical analysis of purANas and veda-s in demeaning way
Colonel Colin Mackenzie
Pandit Taranath (Indian writer hired to write on Hinduism in derogatory way)
(the list extends to 34 names).
The list also includes Britannica encyclopedia, who added Hindu words and explained their meanings in demeaning way.
They influenced Hindu writers like
Dr. R.G. Bhandarkar - highly influenced by Max Muller's works and his research
Bal Gandhar Tilak - who dated vedas to 1500-200 BC
S. Radhakrishnan - whose works are used for post graduation in History and religion of India
All these writers never wrote anything on Christianity. Why? If one is interested in studying religions of others, they also study their first religion. No one keeps studying and publishing foreign religion throughout their life and not study and publish something about their own religion. This shows the wicked mentality of the then Britishers.
There were some Indian Pundits who were genuinely interested in fact-finding. They saw the truth was different then that is propagated. One such revered Pundit was srI Narayana Sastry. He did 20 years of research, refuted false claims by Britishers and attempted to publish them. Since he did not had enough finding, he split his research in 8 volumes. In 1916, The first volume was published under the title, 'The Age of Shankra'. In the introduction of this book, Pt. Narayana Sastry wrote contents of full 800 pages book which he was going to publish in future. In 1917, his other book, 'The Kings of Magadha' was published in which he extensively quoted from bhaviSya purANa. (Kaliyug Rajvrittant)
But immediately after that, his entire 20 years of hard work mysteriously disappeared and long with his written books and manuscripts and a year after that he died.
The facts he brought were
1. Established date of SankarAcArya 2593 of kaliyug to 2625, which comes to 509-477 BC, while refuting arguments of western writers and gave a full history of all five maths (including kamakoti math) of SankarAcArya with his discipline successions.
2. Refuted the arguments of western writers and correctly proved the date of mahAbhArat as 3139 BC
3. Established date of Lord Buddha in 19th century BC
4. Points of deliberate misinterpretations by European writers in the Rajtarangini and fixed the correct chronology of the kings of Kashmir
5. Refuted the Identity of Chandragupta Maurya with Sandracottus (Sandrocottus) by Jones
6. Produced unbroken list of historic dates of the kings of Nepal from the end of dvapAra yUga up to the 20th century
7. Refuted the arguments of the European writers and established the correct dates of the kings of Magadha from Brihadrath dynasty up to the Gupt dynasty according to the purANa-s ad also the inscriptions and the coins, etc
8. Pointed out fabrications of European writers how have they manipulated the interpretations of edicts, coins and the inscriptions to align it with Ashokvardhan of Maurya dynasty (which in fact was related to Ashokaditya of Gupt dynasty)
9. Gave full date-wise list of the king of lunar dynasties (chandra vanSa) and also of solar dynasties (sUrya vanSa) ... but that valuable work was all destroyed as a piece of their simple diplomatic game.
Even now, the records of pUrI, dvArkA, kAmakotI and GauDa sArasvat (GAuDapadAcArya's lineage) math-s shows that the actual birth of our gurU Adi Sankara was 509 - 477 BC.
The above facts were presented so that we can understand that, the reasons behind fact-finding are not always good. We should be proud of our culture and rich history and of course of our scriptures. It is needless to say that we should have complete faith in our scriptures. ?Unfortunately, even today (March 2014), our kids are taught history as fabricated by East India Company and sadly this wrong teach extends to the post graduation in Indian History and Religion.

To know more about such conspiracies, one *must* read a book titled "The True History and the Religion of India: An Encyclopedia of Authentic Hinduism" Swami Prakashanand Saraswati (titled dharm chakravarti, after this work). Swami ji provides authentic proofs and scientific evidences for all his claims and gives correct pictures of our glorious bhArat varSa. An intro is given here and few list of articles are given here. The book is also available at Flipkart and Motilal Banarsidass and Sons. It is published by Macmillan Publications.
Note: First few chapters may not sound interesting, but later on after chapter 9 or so, swami ji enters into in-depth analysis. Swami was disciple of Swami Brahmananda Saraswati of Jyoti MAth, but later left to jungle and spend 20 years in roaming, finally settled in Braj and practised Chaitanya bhakti'. Sometimes a tinge of his philosophy comes, but does not harm in any way to the contents of book.
Interpolations and fabrications were not difficult in those days.
Many eastern and western scholars have appraised the work of Max Muller and H.H> Wilson. However their real intention behind translation our SAStra-s was to present them in a demeaning way.
A website is created to expose their real intention and spread the truth. Instead of copy pasting articles, it is better to redirect readers to the original content.
