Neither I defend nor condemn any thing. For me all this discussion arises
a set of people trying to show that certain practices were not there in the
because they think these practices produce a bad image of  hinduism and
set of people trying to show that they were there( I belong to this set).

I  would like to point out that unless there is some absurdity, welknown
meanings of passages
should be taken and not some far fetched meanings to suit our whims and
This is the convention propounded by Sabara Swamin the first commentator of
Purvamimamsa sutras.

It is meaningless to question Sankara's commentary of Bh.U. passage on the
basis some modern herbal interpretations. Sankara is not only closer to the
than we are but also more knowledgeable because of his extensive tours of
the country
and his interpretation is more valid.

Simply we cannot do away with the things we do not like from the vedas.
