What do different dharma shastras say about domestic violence against women, is domestic violence treated as sin in majority of them? I would like to know from different dharma shastras especially the shastra by ved vyasa and parashar.
Manusmriti recommends husbands to beat their wives when they commit a fault.
भार्या पुत्रश्च दासश्च प्रेष्यो भ्रात्रा च सौदरः । प्राप्तापराधास्ताड्याः स्यू रज्ज्वा वेणुदलेन वा ॥ २९९ ॥
bhāryā putraśca dāsaśca preṣyo bhrātrā ca saudaraḥ | prāptāparādhāstāḍyāḥ syū rajjvā veṇudalena vā || 299 ||
The wife, the son, the slave, the servant and the uterine brother shall be beaten with a rope or a split bamboo, when they have committed a fault. (Manusmriti 8.299)
