This book…is a worthwhile read as a sort of potted history of Hindutva-inspired hatred and to remind those who may want a refresher course in the context of recent happenings.(DNA)
In just under 100 pages, the three historians from Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University have succeeded in highlighting the fact that communalism continues to be a threat in present day India…the authors argue and suggest that it is time that we capitalise on the presence of secular forces within the country.
