UNESCO Courier goes berserk on Hindutva

via Dr. S.Kalyanaraman published on November 5, 2008

Th Courier is claimed to be a flagship publication of UNESCO. This is just one example of the nature of scholarship promoted by UNESCO.

The article titled ‘Ideology clashing with history’ is prejudiced, lopsided and motivated. Neither the writer of this article, Shiraj Sidhva nor the Editor of UNESCO Courier, has cared to get the views of ‘Hindutva’ proponents to ensure a balanced reporting.

The article claims the words of Romila Thapar to be the ultimate in truth. Far from it; she is a Marxist who looks at heritage with a warped outlook and tends to denigrate everything glorious in the cultural traditions of a great nation.

UNESCO is supposed to be a cultural organization and should not become a party to such partisanship and pseudo-scholarship producing zero evidence for the claims made in support of Ms. Thapar. What is ideology about ‘Hindutva’? UNESCO pundits should know that the word hindu-tva simply means being hindu or hindu-ness. Hindu is the identity of a billion people on the globe.


Shame on UNESCO for publishing such inane articles clearly motivated to abuse the Hindu.
