Harvard should take a re-look, says Swamy

Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Thursday said the Harvard University should have a re-look at its decision to remove courses taught by him while maintaining that it should have sought his comments before reaching a conclusion.

The University had decided to remove courses taught by him describing as “reprehensible” his views in a controversial piece he wrote on Islamic terrorism. Dr. Swamy said the University should have first sought his comments which is a normal procedure and this was not done.

“The article was written for a Mumbai newspaper and I teach economics at Harvard. I would assume that they would have sent their petition to me asking for my comments, which is a normal procedure. But they have not done that,” he said.
