The department of Political Science of Delhi University has finally decided to go with Dalit academic and activist Kancha Ilaiah’s books, as a part of their post graduation syllabus. It has put on hold, the University’s Standing Committee’s recommendations for removal of his books that are reportedly said to be “Anti-Hindu.”

Ilaiah’s three books were being objected: ‘Why Am I Not A Hindu’; ‘God as Political Philosopher: Buddha’s Challenge to Brahaminism’; and ‘Post-Hindu India: A Discourse in Dalit-Bahujan Socio-Spiritual and Scientific Revolution’. These books were allegedly “vitriolic towards Hindu Faith.”

The final call ,however, over the matter is yet to be taken by the Academic Council (AC).

“We stand by the past courses we have taught,as we had sent them earlier.The books will continue to be used. These were very carefully considered readings which were given for these courses, and these are readings which are used all over the country and the world. They are part of standing academic discourse, so there’s no question of selectively picking on them”¬†The Indian Express has quoted associate professor Madhulika Banerjee, as saying.
