A COMMENT OF RAM SWARUP'S HINDU VIEW OF CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
This reluctance to allow Hindus in India their perspective on other religions is also rather strange because in Christian or Islamic countries, Hinduism, if it is tolerated at, is generally explained in a very negative manner as a religion of strange cults, idol worship, widow burning, and dowry deaths.

I am speaking as a writer on Hinduism in the United States and have to frequently deal with these negative stereotypes. Even in academic circles in this country there is a reluctance to accept that Hinduism is a religion at all but merely a collection of cults. 

One university here recently published the view of a prominent American professor of Asian Studies that Hinduism is a modern political expropriation of various unrelated cults for nationalist ambitions and that prior to the last century there was no such thing as Hinduism in India, and no such thing as India as a country!
