Rajiv Malhotra's supporters, leveling thoughtful criticism, along with a suggestion for a new research project.

Remember this the next time somebody suggests a debate, as if there were two sides to some academic argument here. There's not. This is scholarship vs. insults & hate.
Another fine bit of reasoning here.

Why am I sharing these? To illustrate what I face for sharing academic views and research. This isn't my characterization of those who smear me; it is their level of argumentation, in their own words.

I'm just going to put it out there people -- Can ya'll please curse me out in संस्कृतं? And if you think that Sanskrit doesn't have some really salty words and phrases, well, you might want to keep studying.

And some #Islamophobia. Hate crimes against Muslims are up in recent years, both in India and the United States. This sort of hateful rhetoric -- where being Muslim is project as de facto bad -- is having a real world impact, for the worse.
