Not Hindu Views

Ajay Gudavarthy (“Muslims of Telangana: A Ground Report”, EPW Web Exclusives, 26 April  2014) says that the “purposive sampling method was used” in his survey of Muslims in three of the 10 districts of Telangana. He adds: “Though the survey essentially focused on Muslims, a few Hindus were also interviewed” (emphasis added). 

The author in citing for Hindu views uses such expressions as: (1) “is being viewed by the dominant community”, (2) “while Hindus perceive this”, (3) “is perceived by the majority community”, (4) “Hindus that we have interviewed in course of our survey”, (5) “Hari, a young lawyer”, (6) “Hindus believe”, (7) “Many Hindu respondents”, (8) “The popular perception among the Hindus”, (9) “one of the Hindu respondents Gopal Krishna”, (10) “While the Hindus pointed out”, (11) “as one of the Hindu respondents said”, and (12) “Bhaktha Vatsal, another Hindu respondent”.
