The activities of the PFI, the Rohingyas, the Patthalgadi in Jharkhand, or the proposed Khalistan Referendum; or even the blasts in Sri Lanka may look like disparate events, fuelled and supported by different people for different reasons. But are they?
With six case studies of events in our recent history, Author Binay Kumar Singh gives a unique perspective as to how forces inimical to India’s growth and civilisational ethos work in tandem to inflict injury on her. Read the story of how Islamic fundamentalism, Christian evangelism, urban naxals and the media-NGO-human rights nexus have come together in what appears to be a common goal –to make India bleed. Are we paying heed?
Sanghi literally means someone who is a member of the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) or its affiliates, but the ‘liberals’ use the term liberally to deride those who differ with their political and ideological stand, or those who wear Hinduism on their sleeves. This book analyses why Hindutva as an ideology is no longer anathema and what brought about this change. Why did a country that was ruled for decades by people espousing Nehruvian secularism suddenly began to align with the ‘communal politics’ of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)? The book is the story of this transformation.
