    Things are not that hunky dory for Dr Swamy.

    His courses have been removed from Harvard.

    The University seems to have taken a view that his personal opinion is unwelcome.

    Harvard professors can not envision a future where a mosque is built on the rubble of their campus. Muslims can.

    Harvard, at first, rejected the lobbying by some students against his article as free speech.

    And the link to his op is no longer working, or is it just me?

    Harvard dropping Subramanian Swamy's summer economic course is an improper decision. Economics has nothing to do with right to free speech. He is paying the price for speaking against Gandhi Family corruption.

    I don't think the Gandhis can muster the Muslims of the world to oppose.

    It was opposed by the Muslim students.

    Given all the uproar against the US being anti Muslim, this was a good chance to show that they are not and it helped since the action while placating Muslims did not go against any American or American interest.

    Killing two birds with one stone!

    Unfortunately, Only Gandhi family can muster Muslims of the world and not any Indian Parties like BJP which is considered as communal by many.

    Gandhi family are Pro-Muslims. They would not like Swamy to propose "Declare India a Hindu Rashtra in which non-Hindus can vote only if they proudly acknowledge that their ancestors were Hindus” and “Remove the masjid in Kashi Vishwanath temple and the 300 masjids at other temple sites” Congress will never like such proposal to have high PR because of obvious reason.

    It's Congress behind the line due to whatever politics you may say sir.
