In fact AV's interpretation of atra vEda avEdAH does not consider pipplAda's
definition of the term vEda (it is a shrutahAna dOSha)

Also it is illogical in the way that when vedas are said to be sublatable
in mOksha, why they are still continue to exist now? Does it mean nobody in
AV sampradAya ever attained mOxa so far?
