With *humility* I would say there is no religion with wrong
credentials. I also doubt the symbolic status of a foreigner. As
far as I know there is no Acharya who has thought on these lines. The
Jagadguru's have never approached interpreting dharma that way and even
Paramacharya of Kanchi. There are many more examples what we can give.
Please go through the Hindu Dharma by Paramacharya, ( where he speaks
elaborately it is also available online) and I also support views of Jaldhar
and Sanjay and opine that it would be better for ourselves to introspect.
sada shiva samarambham Shankaracharya madhyamam !
asmadacharya paryantham vande guru paramparam !!
