Over the Wendy Doniger Book withdrawal (NOT BAN) from Penguin we have seen worldwide protests from a veritable swarm of defenders of freedom of speech. As usual these self-righteous pompous airheads have been calling Hindus fascists, extremist Nazis, fundamentalists and anything else that their plethora of vilifying vocabulary can be employed in order to make themselves feel better.William Dalrymple, whose treatment of Indian history show disturbing parallels with how David Irving treats the Holocaust, has even blamed the upcoming Indian election as being the reason, drawing an analogy between India of now and the rise of the nazis during Germany of 1936.
What these rather laughable social misfits conveniently forget is that while they harp on about Hindus being fascists, they should perhaps test their principles by defending freedom of speech at all levels.And that means all levels
. So throwing down the gauntlet we should ask this plague of Hinduphobic fascists who constantly pump out an endless stream of hatred against the largest surviving group of ancient indigenous peoples on the planet, if they would defend the writer who was also arrested back in 2010 for putting his book Pedophiles Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct’ on Amazon and after many complaints finally took it off.So lets see petitions to Amazon and condemnation of the police who went and arrested him for promoting that it was acceptable for adults to be having sex with children. Philip Ray Greaves II was arrested after he sold and mailed a signed copy of his book to undercover police officers. The book included first-person descriptions of sexual encounters, purportedly written from a child’s point of view. Greaves argues in the book that paedophiles are misunderstood, as the word literally means to love a child.
So if the supporters of Doniger are so eager to defend freedom of speech let them also defend this sort of effluence in the name of that very ‘freedom’. Over to you to ..
Note : HHR in no way endorses this sick book but agrees with its withdrawal from Amazon
