Penguin To Recall And Pulp Doniger's Book

 

Copies of American scholar Wendy Doniger's 'The Hindus: An Alternative History' are to be withdrawn and destroyed in India, due to a legal tangle involving Penguin, its publisher. A settlement has been reached between Penguin and Shiksha Bachao Andolan that found the book insulting to Hindus, following a lawsuit in a New Delhi court.


The settlement requires Penguin to recall all copies of the book immediately and to pulp them within six months.
