This view is called "deconstructionism" in the West and is the product of French Marxist thinkers.  By this view Thapar sees Hinduism, and religion in general, as reinterpreting cultural symbols for purpose of social and political exploitation. She tries to point out that Hinduism is mainly a vehicle of social oppression through the caste system and is not worthy of much respect for any modern rational or humanistic person. 

This is standard deconstructionist thinking about religion which is based on the assumption that there is nothing eternal in human beings and therefore there can be no continuous meaning in religion. In other words she interprets Hinduism and religion which are supposed to deal with the eternal, only in terms of time and history.

Such people have failed to understand the correct development of reason (buddhi) according to Hindu sages, whose real purpose is to allow us to discern the transient from the eternal, not to deny the eternal in favor of the transient such as is the movement of the logic of thinkers like Thapar.
