    This is a game that has been played by both the USSR and the US and also UK.

    It is a great 'force multiplier' for them to keep countries and people on their side of the world view.

    The religious organisations and the NGOs also play the same game.

    Did he get the book banned? I know he had reservations against Doniger's work.

    No he hasn't got it banned!

    Penguin has decided to withdraw all the copies of 'The Hindus' in India and destroy all circulating copies. It is being done because there has been widespread academic critique on the contents of the book which has been shown to be full of factual errors and misinterpretations.

    Also as a scholar Wendy should have interacted with Rajiv. Why hasn't she got the guts to have an equal academic debate with RM? Isn't that what scholars do?
    Wendy Doniger's book 'The Hindus' withdrawn by Penguin India due to controversy | Latest News & Updates at DNAIndia.com

    Also Rajiv Malhotra has nothing to do with this book withdraw personally, the book was being opposed by American Hindu community and other groups.

    Don't spread twisted news!

    I know book is banned. But there is a difference between book getting banned and Rajiv getting the book banned.

    I got the impression from Rajeev Malhotra's twitter feed that he played a role in getting the book banned.

    My bad if its not the case.

    But nonetheless, a great victory for Mr. Malhotra.

    Though i exactly don't know the details of the doniger book being discussed here.

    But i was there during this program, if am not wrong was held on Jan 19th in Bengaluru. I really enjoyed the entire program/entire talk by Shri Rajiv malhotra.. This program was basically regd kannada translation of his book "Being Different". I also purchased the kannada translation.

    Its due to a law suit filed in 2011 by some organisation in Naraina Vihar, Delhi and others apparently and not Rajiv Malhotra.

    Penguin to withdraw Wendy Doniger’s controversial book, The Hindus
    ...
    According to the agreement, the book has to be withdrawn from all territories of 'Bharat' starting at the earliest and latest within six months of the agreement being signed. The agreement also states that Penguin 'submits that it respects all religions worldwide'. The agreement has been drawn with a group called Shiksha Bachao Andolan based in Naraina Vihar in New Delhi, which had filed a civil suit against the company over the book in the 2011. In addition to this, there were two criminal complaints filed as well in this matter in Hauz Khaz. One complaint was filed in 2010, and another in 2013.

    Rajiv malhotra told that day, thanks to his books being among best-sellers, the publishers can not ignore him. Else they would not have even looked at him. He told that a cabal exists in west/india which wants to push a certain narrative only to their interests/worldview.

    We can always ban these organisation, but there money also indirectly funds areas where the Govt seems to be incapable to handling.

    Further, it has all to do with geopolitics and India does not seem to upset the US or the Western countries.
