Snakes In The Ganga author exposes dangerous theory of American racism from Indian caste
In an exclusive chat with Republic Media Network Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami on Nation Wants to Know, “Snakes in the Ganga: Breaking India 2.0” author Rajiv Malhotra explained how ideas that the United States have on the caste system is imported into India.
Speaking on the subject, Malhotra said: “Nowadays because we live in a global era, Kurukshetra is global, you cannot say that something happening thousands of miles away will not affect us. .Distance doesn’t matter at all.”
He explained: “Let me ask you this: what if Microsoft and others like them adopt a corporate policy in their human resources department to have caste quotas and a census of castes like they did for blacks and whites in the United States, and they say caste equals the problem of blacks and whites in the United States, and what happens when they apply to their subsidiaries in India? All of this is likely to happen.
“They say caste is the root of American racism”
Earlier in his interview, the Indian-American author added, “A new theory has been formulated in the United States in the Ivy Leagues called Critical Caste Theory. He says caste is the root of American racism. According to them, caste has its origin in the Vedic traditions, according to them, then the British learned it in India, brought it to America and it helped them to frame the black and white question in terms of racism. Thus, caste and racism are inseparable. Caste is the global culprit of racism everywhere. It is the architecture, the plane from which racism of all kinds emerges in the world,” he said.
He added: “Based on this, there is an attack on IITs by Harvard Professor Ajantha Subramanian in one of the leading 400-page books saying that IITs are a bastion of casteism. Mainly privileging the Brahmins and oppressing the Dalits. And then, in addition, there was a lawsuit in Silicon Valley against Cisco that the Brahmins who are in charge there are essentially racists. Therefore, US racism law must be applied to prosecute such cases.
