American Indologist Wendy Doniger’s book The Hindus: An Alternative History, withdrawn from the Indian market by Penguin India, became inaccessible online on Wednesday.

The cyberworld blackout came amid indications that the Shiksha Bachao Andolan Samiti, which forced the book's withdrawal, would soon file a case against Aleph Book Company for publishing another book by the author. People took to the Internet to download it on Tuesday, but could not do so on Wednesday. A message on online shopping site Amazon said, “Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available.”
