The Brahmins Declare The Vedas to be Infallible and not to be questioned, Why?

The Brahmins Declare The Vedas to be Infallible and not to be questioned, Why? - The Riddles in Hinduism by Dr. BR Ambedkar explains how The vedas became infallible or apaurusheyas on the basis of Shaastras of Hindu religion.

We come across the questions like are the brahmins are only authority on vedas ? who wrote vedas? Are the vedas eternal or apaurusheya?. Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution, attempts all such questions and reveals all the hidden truths from the shaastras of hindu religion or the holy books of hindus.

To say that the Vedas occupy a very high position in the Religious literature of the Hindus is to make an understatement. To say that the Vedas form the sacred literature of the Hindus will also be an inadequate statement. For the Vedas besides being a sacred literature of the Hindus is a book whose authority cannot be questioned. The Vedas are infallible. Any argument based on the Vedas is final and conclusive. There is no appeal against it. This is the theory of the Vedic Brahmins and is accepted by the generality of the Hindus.

Vedic Brahmins say that the Vedas are Apaurusheya what they mean is that they were not made by man. Not being made by man, they are free from the failings, faults and frailties to which every man is subject and are therefore infallible. 

It is only in the time of Gautama that the Vedas came to be regarded as the only authority. There was a time when an agreed decision of the Assembly was admitted as one source of authority. That is the period represented by Baudhayana.
