This is just the sort of unconsidered, knee-jerk response that can give
INDOLOGY a bad name. I agree that Prof. Tokunaga's statement was
controversial, and strongly worded. Far from being a thoughtful or
interesting contribution, based on a knowledge of classical indology, the
above reaction seems simply intended to wound or insult.
There is a very real possibility that INDOLOGY will cease to be of
interest to professional indologists unless the forum's guidelines are
adhered to. I have no "religious" committment to the forum: I am quite
happy to shut it down if it ceases to be useful and interesting (and
occasionally funny, I hope). The guidelines are prominently displayed on
the forum's web site.
All the best,
