    Abstract:
    Malhotra is generally portrayed by American and European philosophers as a theologian and he is relegated to the backwaters of Hindutva. This review makes a strong case for Malhotra's scholarship and contextualizes him within the domains of philosophy and even Liberation Theology. Malhotra's scholarship has been non-pejoratively assessed in this review. The reviewer's bias is towards Christianity and not Hinduism. Therefore this review is all the more important to Malhotra's critics.
