Washington Post and Hinduphobia

“Shankar Vedantam”:http://www.vedantam.com/mainpage.html, Washington Post staff writer and SAJA Member had an article in WP, titled, “Wrath Over a Hindu God; U.S. Scholars’ Writings Draw Threats From Faithful”:http://www.vedantam.com/ganesha04-2004.html. The article quoted Sulekha Columnist, Rajiv Malhotra extensively as well as Columnist Sankrant Sanu. But then what do you expect from a SAJA member. According to “Rajiv”:http://www.sulekha.com/expressions/column.asp?cid=305924
bq. Washington Post’s front-page article entitled, ?Wrath Over a Hindu God: U.S. Scholars’ Writings Draw Threats From Faithful,? by Shankar Vedantam (April 10, 2004; Page A01) misrepresents the topic by failing to highlight the central issues being debated, namely, systemic ideological biases within academia, while caricaturing the community’s dissenting intellectuals in ways that approach Hinduphobia.
