Time Magazine writer, after long piece very critical of India's leadership, finds Wikipedia page vandalized

Time Magazine recently offered a booklet-length article by Aatish Taseer on Narenda Modi’s :reign” in India, as an example of populism and leading to anti-intellecualism.

In an attempt to defuse socialism (and India’s bureaucracy, which has been criticized). Modi is said to have created a climate of “religious nationalism”, comparable to alt-right movements in many countries.

His attitudes are supposed to have undermined the intellectual capital that allowed Indian companies to get Y2K work from American companies, for example.

The writer’s Wikipedia page (now OK) is said to have been vandalized.
