Whether modern Hinduism is a fabrication by Vivekananda

Rajiv Malhotra (The writer is Indian-American thinker and author) My article in Organiser. FIGHTING THE LEFTIST-EVANGELIST MAFIA: http://t.co/CFVHx60qIw
Initially, I had encounters with the Hinduphobics who denigrate Hinduism by using Freudian psychoanalysis. They are obsessed with looking for abusive sexuality in gurus, deities, symbols, family life, and everything Hindu. They made many false allegations against me for opposing their scholarship; they tried to claim that I was denying their free speech, when the exact opposite was true. 
Then I wrote Breaking India exposing the nexus of Evangelists and Leftists that is run from abroad using Indian sepoys to do the dirty work. This, too, generated a huge awakening in India, and at the same time raised the level of threats I started to face. 
Following this, my book Being Different explained how our civilisation differs in very fundamental ways. We should not dilute these distinct qualities, and in fact, they are a great gift to the world. Again, this activated the same Indian sepoys whose strings are pulled by their puppet-masters sitting in Western academia, church seminaries, human rights watch dog groups and funding agencies.
More recently, my book Indra’s Net exposed the entire school of academic studies that considers modern Hinduism to be a fabrication made up by Swami Vivekananda for the sake of Hindu nationalism. He is being accused by this group of scholars for appropriating elements of Christianity and other Western ideas and using Sanskrit terms like karma, yoga, bhakti to repackage Western practices in Indian vocabulary. I showed that many well-known Indian writers from Romila Thapar to Pankaj Mishra had picked up this thesis from the West and popularised it in India.

My interest is in the nineteenth century reinterpretations of Hinduism and not in Swami Vivekananda. In this instance, his happens to be the most systematic and influential reinterpretation. The Hindu self-images that have come about as a consequence of his restatement of Hinduism have social and political implications. As someone interested in intellectual history, my aim is to bring this complexity to light.

I dont know where India Facts is going with such articles. To cloak self-indulgence in Samskrit is to insult my intelligence. "Hindu view" is larger, deeper and more evolved than selective and motivated quotes from some texts. Had the author or India Facts really wanted to present readers with honest discussion on meat-eating then both should have presented how other sampradayas deal with meat-eating - say Srivaishnavism or Jainism. Shatavadhani Ganesh shld spare intelligent readers with gratuitous, untenable advice. "The negative effects of meat-eating can be tempered by making better choices in how the meat is procured.Finally, there can be no universal dictum about the food that we can eat or should not eat". How the leat is procured? Ganesh, meat is prcured from a living creature who also knows the same fear of death and hunger as evolved writers like you. There is no fearless or painless way of procuring meat. If the animal had the choice it would run away - which means it is afraid to die. As I said, pl spare me the bogus scholarship which is selective. Meat eating drinking and sex are not of the same category. Manu also says the end purpose of physical unity of man and woman is child. Drinking and meat eating serve no noble objective. And pl allow me to make this point as harshly as I can. 
Such articles undermine the Hindu war against the Abrahamics. India Facts is abandoning this Kurukshetra for such articles which serve no real purpose except give our adversaries a handle to weaken our arguments. Anachronist articles do great harm and disservice to the battles here and now. And in case I have not said it in words of one syllable - meat eating rests on fear and pain of the animal that is killed. When there are alternatives I see no reason to kill. Hindu dharma is all about context, time and place. This article makes so-called liberalism a universal diktat - that Hindus must not see issues in black and white. Wrong. Some issues must be seen as black or white if we have to fight the war. The male progeny of the cow does not become another species. Cow is cow male or female. And it is uplakshana. If we begin to eat the cow or the male progeny of the cow because there is something in some Samskrit text which says we ate cow, then we will eat anything.
And as for your silly observation that meat eating was a reality - my objection was not to the reality but to the fact that it is a reality. And so is rape, sadism, sodomy, incest also reality. Reality dearie is not just what is found in samskrit texts but what is seen in the real world. Welcome to a world outside of selective quotes from our texts which you use to insult those less well read. My grandmother who couldnt read best exemplified the dharma and culture by which i live. The last thing she would do everyday before she locked the doors of her house for the night was to place food for the dogs and this was Srirangam in the 1950s. That dearie is dharma - not quoting some text which says Yagnyavalka liked to eat cows as long as it was tender. No wonder Christians and Muslims have a cake walk in trampling us under their feet. With scholars like you and the author, their objective to undermine and mock the beliefs of ordinary Hindus that we worship the cow, cow is sacred, killing animals is cruel - is achieved without a battle.
