But my point here is not to pit these two books against each other—it does disservice to both and although they are broadly similar in topic they are very different Hindus in Birmingham book detail—but to point out to Doniger, an author who I admire, that tone of voice can mask and detract from message. Hindus perform idol worship because they believe that a part of the god resides in it. The British did not want to "hurt the sentiments" of the orthodox Brahmins so they disallowed any representation of Hinduism that gave voice to the untouchables, to women and to tribals. Hindu America has to sort out the question of what exactly Hinduism means for it.

For centuries, they remained unaware of the hymns of the four Vedas or the idealist monism of the Upanishads that the German Romantics, American Transcendentalists and other early Hindus in Birmingham book solemnly supposed to be the very essence of Indian civilization. In the absence of such a debate, it has become easy for the apparent success of Hindu Americans to be turned into a symbol for various political interests. During the colonial era, the term Hindu had connotations of native religions of India, that is religions other than Christianity and Islam. While no one can dictate how Hindu Americans ought to feel about Hinduism, it is definitely important for the community to step up the conversation on how Hindu Americans, and Hindus, more generally, could be thinking about global issues today such as nature, the environment, work, family, and money.

Sex, and homosexuality in particular, had to be expunged. This first encounter with devotional ecstasy left the Bloomsbury aesthete baffled. It did not look good for the newly emergent Hindu right to be associated with a faith with dirt under its nails, and gods with sexual lives. Hindu girls and women pierce their nose also. There is almost no legal protection. The strongest point on which Hinduphobia exists today in academia, media, and activist circles after all has to do with the alleged elitism of Hindus in general and Hindu Americans in particular.
