Indophobia: The Real Elephant in the Living Room
By Vamsee Juluri
Juluri has diagnosed the reasons of Indiophobia of the Whites correctly when he says:
“The present Indophobia has its origins in colonial Hinduphobia. Fuelled by the crazy stories of missionaries determined to rid the world of heathen Hindus and steeped in the ideologies of the colonizers’ civilizing mission, Indophobia infiltrated popular, journalistic, political and academic thought.”
This Hinduphobia is what gives rise to movies such as Slumdog Millionaire and creatures like Wendy Doniger and Martha Nussbaum. The phenomenon is driven by the Christian hatred and fear of religiously tolerant pagans.
