One of the speakers, Gajendran Ayyathurai, teacher and researcher at Centre for Modern Indian Studies, Göttingen University, Germany, singled out five last names to declare them as violent advocates of what he called “Brahminism”. He said: “So, these last names — Iyers, Kompella, Trivedis, Sharmas, Mukherjees and so on — they seem to be violent advocates of this kind of malignant Brahminism, which we need to talk about more”.

Another speaker, Akanksha Mehta, Lecturer in Gender, Sexuality and Cultural Studies and the co-director of the Centre for Feminist Research at Goldsmiths, University of London, on Day 2 asserted: “I say all this to emphasize, without hesitation, that Hindutva is indeed inseparable from Hinduism. And arguments of “Hindutva is not Hinduism” are deeply dangerous, Brahminical, and laced with eration and violence. They will not take us to the future desired.”

One of the hosts, Rupa Vishwanath, Professor of Indian Religions at the Centre for Modern Indian Studies at the University of Göttingen, Germany, also asked the panelists if Hinduism needs to be dismantled.
