Great feeling to start the day with a letter from United States Dept. of Justice that my appeal for furnishing some info pertaining to the BJP's shady activities in the US has been accepted. When Indian RTIs don't get you the info, we file an RTI (FOIA request) in America 🙂 https://t.co/fhwyEyDW1J

the University of Toronto Faculty of Law recently asked me to teach Critical Race Theory and/or Race & the Law. given @CAUT_ACPPU's censure of UofT, i've declined. it would be inconsistent with principles of either course to teach them while @censureutoronto remains ongoing.

Full disclosure -- the article mentions the Bhutada family, which also has ties with the right-wing Hindu American Foundation (HAF). I am currently conducting research on HAF, as part of a project on the US-based Hindu Right. I am also being sued by HAF in a SLAPP lawsuit.
