Hannah Ellis-Petersen’s take on the proposed conference called, ‘Dismantling Global Hindutva'(the Guardian) is disingenuous. The title of the conference has sent shock waves to adherents of the Hindu faith. The title is sinister and threatening. What have global Hindus done to be targeted in this fashion? 53 universities have come together to, ‘discuss the issue’. If that is the case why has no one been invited to present an alternative view. Are Universities not the places where genuine debate should take place? This is a well organized attack on Hinduism by a variety of groups who find the growing following of the faith unpalatable.
