Vishal Agarwal has masterfully offered an elaborate critique of Wendy Doniger’s “The Hindus: An Alternative History” in this book. Dr. Doniger is one of the prominent Western Indologists who had authored the controversial book on history of Hindus, demeaning Hinduism as a religion of sex and perversion. In that book, Hindu Deities are presented as lustful, Hindu saints are falsely alleged by the author to have indulged in sexual orgies, or to have 'taken actions against Muslims', Hindu worshippers are compared to cheating boyfriends, ‘intoxication’ is a ‘central theme of the Vedas’ and Hindu scriptures are presented as a litany of tales of ‘faithful women forsaken by their ungrateful husbands.’ Prof. Doniger, in her book, transforms Hinduphobia into an academically acceptable pursuit. The author has offered a nuanced critique of Prof. Doniger's book paragraph by paragraph. This is a must read by all those who are affected by Hinduphobia.
