While Sri Aurobindo synthesizes and harmonizes differences by pointing out latent truths present in all traditions, Rajiv Malhotra seems inclined to foment divisions and instigate acrimony by micro-analyzing all the distortions which have occurred in the Christian tradition. In that sense, he is no different from his Christian adversaries who employ the same angle of attack when it comes to Hinduism. They are all stuck at the same level of consciousness. They complement each other! :-)

Till the time there is hate, till the time we tolerate hate-mongers, till the time we don´t reject politics of intolerance, we cannot possibly dream of peace. Politics of hate can only breed further hate; only someone insane would believe that a deepening cycle of hate will lead to peace, harmony or prosperity and strengthen the foundations of a robust democracy or a harmonious society. Let us not perpetrate hate. Let us condemn all the hate-mongers, of any community or creed. Let us demand that all the guilty in each of the attacks be brought to justice.
