The Advent of Hitler in India

However, he has met resistance in his work. “Since I started working as an Assistant Professor, I have designed a number of courses with Jewish themes embedded in them in a camouflaged manner, as I failed to get approval for my proposed courses focused on Jewish themes and on the Shoah. It is hard to get approval for such courses in Indian academia as the administration fears that it might lose the goodwill of its political masters if any action of theirs has a detrimental effect on their political masters’ Muslim votes.” Muslims in India do not know that Arabs enjoy equality and high standards of living in Israel, and believe that the mosques on Temple Mount are closed to Muslims because of Israeli control. Because of such misinformation, Indian political parties do not make efforts to support Israel likely because of fear that the large Muslim population will turn against them.

Yet he still finds ways to inform his students of the truth. In a History of Science and Technology class he once taught to engineering students, for example, he assigned a paper asking students to analyze the misuse of technology during the Holocaust. He also introduced a series of weekly film screenings at the university, where he shows movies on the Holocaust and other Jewish themes.

“I made a serious effort to eliminate misconceptions and to bring into sharp focus the Jewish contributions to the world,” he says of his work. He concluded, stating: “I ask the world to help me in my endeavour to remove hatred and to promote peace through the spread of knowledge.”

    Holocaust is taught in middle school history so People know about Hitler.As Hindu dharma preaches- God is one, paths are different, Name is different so they don't hate anyone but you got the part right about importance of Muslim votes. That is current Pro-Muslim govt. fallacy

    Anything which puts Muslims in bad light, is suppressed in India. As 99% Indians ve no opinion/knowledge on middle-east, they get influenced by Muslim voice which strongly anti-Israel and Pro-Palestine. Whereas, if they listen to their Dharma- India and Israel should be best friends for all purpose. Jews and Hinduism/Buddhist/Sikh/Jain only religion which were not created after Prosecuting anybody.
    Our leftist education system and media even suppresses true India history- glorifying all Islamic invaders and pointing all ills in Hinduism.
    Before Islam came to India through invasion- India very pro-minority country- Iranis fled after Islamic invasion and took refuge in India , & I think same was case with Israelis too in 1 AD ,
    Indians don't even know how Hinduism is different from Abrahamic faiths –
    but we need such academic discourses. and understand why Muslims hate Jews and why we Hindus should always be Pro-Israel.

    Forget Judaism, Hindus don't even study actual Quraan & Bible! Such is power of our brain dead current Government- Anything to do with promotion of Hindu values, protection of temples etc. is strongly suppressed in India to not to hurt "Muslim sentiments".
    I strongly support having Jewish Study in our colleges- India after all proclaims it is secular country- so what's wrong in teaching all religions?
