As per his bio and per Google Scholar, he has published no papers or research as pertaining to Hindus, rights of Hindus, impact or relationship between Islam and Hinduism / Hindutva, India, or the Indian Government. His works "Religion and Globalization: World Religions in Historical Perspective" and "World Religions Today" include discussion of Hinduism where none of the authors including John have any specialization related to Hinduism or Hindutva, Sikhism or Dalits.

In 2021, he endorsed the "Dismantling Global Hindutva" conference stating that

"the current government of India [in 2021] has instituted discriminatory policies including beef bans, restrictions on religious conversion and interfaith weddings, and the introduction of religious discrimination into India’s citizenship laws. The result has been a horrifying rise in religious and caste-based violence, including hate crimes, lynchings, and rapes directed against Muslims, non-conforming Dalits, Sikhs, Christians, adivasis and other dissident Hindus. Women of these communities are especially targeted. Meanwhile, the government has used every tool of harassment and intimidation to muzzle dissent. Dozens of student activists and human rights defenders are currently languishing in jail indefinitely without due process under repressive anti-terrorism laws."
