Michael Witzel and his racist remarks

If you have not already heard of Harvard University's Michael Witzel and his racist remarks on Hindus and Hinduism, please go here:
Prof. Kalyanaraman's Article or Vivekajyoti blog.

Witzel is part of the clique comprising Romila Thapar and the "secular academics" who believe in and peddle the much discredited "Aryan Invasion Theory". You can see these "secular academics" writing about "Hindutva" quite often in the pages of another red-rag of The Hindu group, the "Frontline" magazine.

Of course, there's not a peep of this story that appears in The Hindu till now. Why would The Hindu publicise that one of its own is the hate peddler?
