Harvard Instructor Creates Uproar for Anti-terrorist Article

Subramanian Swamy, a summer school economics instructor at Harvard recently wrote an article about the July 13 Muslim terrorist bombing in Mumbai, India, his homeland. The title of the article was: How to Wipe Out Islamic Terror.

In his article, Swamy wrote that Muslims in India:

“Are being programmed by a slow reactive process to become radical and thus slide into suicide against Hindus. We need a collective mindset as Hindus to stand against the Islamic terrorist.”

As a result of Swamy’s article which was only published in India, more than 200 people have signed a petition demanding that Harvard immediately terminate him.

Once again we see the intolerance for criticism of other religions, especially Islam while no one seems to care when Christianity is not only criticized, but rebuked and trampled upon by the same academic community. In colleges, high schools, junior high schools and elementary schools across the nation, teachers can open make statements to their students telling them the Bible is nothing more than a fairy tale and that Christianity promotes ignorance and anti-science, while at the same time they are not allowed to defame Islam or Allah.

Where are the petitions when a teacher announces to their class that Christianity is nothing more than an ignorant superstition or when a bus driver calls a student a stupid little bigot when she expresses her Christian views on morality to another student on the bus?

Fortunately, at the moment Harvard University says that it is not investigating the matter nor does it plan on taking any action against Swamy for his anti-terrorist views. However the incident is another case of the growing defense of Islam and it’s intolerance of all other religions in our nation.
