Rajiv Malhotra, whose criticisms of scholarship on India will be familiar to many on this blog, has been accused by Richard Fox Young of plagiarism in his recent book Indra’s Net. Examples of the problematic passages are publicly available. Many of them appear to be drawn, unacknowledged, from the work of Andrew Nicholson, a member of this blog. Malhotra has himself issued public criticism of plagiarism in the past. There is now a petition circulating to HarperCollins, the book’s publisher, to withdraw the book from publication on these grounds.
