Do we need to talk to them?," you ask. I don't think so, either. Not
because there isn't an issue here. But because we're unqualified.
Speaking for myself, I'm not a sociologist, or even a history of religions
person. I haven't read all the subaltern stuff, nor all the Orientalism
debates. I've mostly spent my time trying to understand old Sanskrit texts
on vyakarana, ayurveda, and yoga. That is not a good preparation for
debating with Malhotra, who is not really interested in Sanskrit, as far as
I can tell.
I do think some scholars need to take him on, although I think his
arguments are feeble to the point of not being serious. But it's a job for
someone who does Orientalism etc. professionally.
