In India Muslims are often known to support pro-Pakistan, anti-Hindu agenda, and oppose decisions like construction of a temple for Hindus' revered Incarnation Rama at the Incarnation's birth place, Ayodhya. Dr. Swamy's article, to reduce such tensions, has urged Indian Muslims to realize that they are not some immigrants from the Middle East, but that their ancestors a few centuries ago were Hindus themselves.
Dr. Swamy, in an interview with Karan Thapar over his article, has well clarified that he is not against Islam or Muslims, that if it were so, he would not have accepted his daughter's marriage to a Muslim man !
It is clear from these examples that views such as expressed in Dr. Swamy's article are often distorted in the media. In India some anti-Hindu political figures tried to sue Dr. Swamy over this article, but the cases were not even accepted in the Indian courts of law. Only after some political pressure has a case been entered in a high court in India recently, but the court has yet to rule for or against Dr. Swamy. In such a case, how can
Harvard University declare Dr. Swamy guilty of hate speech ?
In the name of freedom of speech, Universities like Harvard are known to hold conferences that have an anti-Hindu, anti-India agenda, such as the pro 'Kashmir cessation/freedom' conferences held by the organization of Ghulam Nabi Fai, who has now confessed in US courts about the source of his funding being Pakistan's ISI, to influence US policy on Kashmir. This has promoted policies that have virtually enabled genocide of Hindus in Kashmir ! Don't such conferences demonize an entire religious community, namely the Hindu community and aren't they allowed in the universities in the name of freedom of expression ? It smacks of double standard that Harvard University should feel justified to brush aside this very freedom of speech to cancel Dr. Swamy's courses, citing some imaginary distinction between unpopular and unwelcome political views ! In light of this and in the name of democratic principles, Forum for Hindu Awakening condemns Harvard University's decision to cancel Dr. Swamy's courses on Economics.
