Penguin India has defended its decision to recall and destroy copies of a book on Hinduism by a prominent US scholar.

In its first comments on the row Penguin said it had to respect the laws of land, such as those which make it a crime to offend religious feeling.

Penguin also said it had a duty to protect its employees against threats.

Wendy Doniger's book The Hindus: An Alternative History had been the subject of a legal challenge claiming the text was offensive to Hindus.
