About the Book :
The Myth of Saint Thomas and the Mylapore Shiva Temple is a complete study of the St. Thomas in India legend—its origin, history, and communal ramifications—and is named after the main, 24-chapter essay by Ishwar Sharan. It includes many independent, penetrating articles by senior journalists and scholars, and exposes in detail the anti-Hindu bias in India’s secular English-language media. One chapter deals with the pronounced Christian bias of the Encyclopedia Britannica and popular online reference portal Wikipedia. Both encyclopedia’s carry fanciful, non-factual entries for St. Thomas the Apostle in India that they refuse to correct or change.
The book documents the destruction of the original Kapaleeswara Shiva Temple by the Portuguese and its replacement by the San Thome Cathedral Basilica on the Mylapore beach in Chennai.
