Some examples of undermining Hinduism

The Bhagavad Gita is a dishonest book.
Ganesha's trunk is a limp phallus.
Devi is the mother with a penis.
Shiva is a notorious womanizer and violent.
Sri Ramakrishna is a pedophile who molested the young Swami Vivekananda.
The bindi is a drop of menstrual fluid.

There are more of these types of findings and modern interpretations of Hinduism and its symbols in American academy.

The book Invading the Sacred - An Analysis of Hinduism Studies in America uncovers the senile people behind such monstrous accusations and the Indian Diaspora's challenges to such scholarship. The book also details how those who dared to speak up against such misinterpretations have been branded as ‘dangerous.’
