Rajiv Malhotra, renowned scholar, successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and founder of Infinity Foundation said Marxists and leftists have resorted to a new approach of Wokeism to apply Critical Race Theory to castes in India as Critical Caste Theory define Dalits in India as the Blacks of America. This allows them to superimpose atrocities on the Black population in America on the conditions of Dalits in India, in an effort to break India by dividing Hindus.  Rajiv identified such scholars in Harvard as poisonous snakes who could bite and kill a society be it America or India.

Professor Francis Xavier Clooney an American Jesuit priest and scholar in the teachings of Hinduism, agreed with the problem in applying such straight jacket theory, and welcomed Rajiv’s right to take on Harvard on this issue, citing Harvard examines everyone on earth, so why should it be spared. Without being willing to defend or attack Harvard scholars of India in various institutes and centers of Harvard, he focused on the work being conducted in the Divinity School and mentioned the plans to expand Hindu Studies there.
