I agree partially on #1 and 2.. but lets not forget that the book hasn't been banned, the publisher reached a court backed deal with the petitioners. And that too a publisher no less than Penguin.

On #3, there are umpteen books written to degrade Hindu Gods, be it Shiva, or Ganesha or Kali.. how much ever a westerner may study the Hindu religion they will never be able to comprehend and accept Hindu philosophy.. and Indians don't need a foreign author's cocktail of confused commentary.
