      The evil of small minds has triumphed over all that is good intellectually and morally at Harvard.

      Professor Diana L. Eck is a supporter of smooth-talking radical Islamist Tariq Ramadan, whom she describes as “one of Europe’s deepest and most articulate Muslim thinkers… one of the most powerful exponents of a reformist, self-critical, spiritual and dialogical Islam.” She is also a defender of Boston’s notorious Roxbury Mosque (whose former and current trustees, mullahs, and congregants have known ties to terrorism and to preaching violence).

      Sugata Bose has a personal agenda on this subject. He will support any anti-hindu and pro-islamist movements, just to keep peace and happiness at home with his Pakistani wife Ayesha.

      Harvard claims to be a supporter of freedom of speech, which is not reflected in this act.

      Moreover, the premise of 'inciting violence' has not materialized.

      The question can now be safely raised on the motives of those recommending such actions. Harvard has to realize that a lot of its income is generated from the community which still believes in what Dr Swamy says otherwise, irrespective of what he said on this instance.

      If Harvard elects not to reverse this irrational decision, they will lose ALL credibility for many,many years to come. This petition is a starting point. It is the catalyst for a movement that will ensure Harvard's decision is known across the length and breadth of this planet, and it will be known as a pro islamic terror, anti-India decision.
