Chapter II. FOIL on Hindus and Hinduism

As mentioned earlier, FOIL’s views on Hindus, Hinduism and India are highly biased, unsubstantiated and based on the research of scholars with questionable credentials or without lack of specialty.  This is very much an example of the blind leading the deaf.  Each has to rely on the other’s faculty and their world view is shaped on what information they feed each other.  Furthermore, FOIL and its affiliates are highly selective in their analysis and excel at half-truths.  And, they use this view to examine and ridicule other organizations and individuals.
