The articles in this book have their roots in recent events. Their theme is the carnage in Gujarat in 2002 and the physical and intellectual savagery of the Sangh Parivar.

They look at how the Sangh Parivar systematically distorts history, works against the Constitution of the Republic of India and throws into the waste bin all those ideas of civilization that have arisen after mediaeval times and on which all modern societies are based.

The author has drawn on published reports to show how the leaders of the Sangh Parivar routinely use hedging, deception and outright lies to pursue their vicious ends.


After going through Mukul Dube's thoughtful work, one wonders why it does not sink into the minds of the aggressive separatists and destroyers of the unity of this great country that there is not the faintest possibility of the conversion of Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and Buddhists into second-grade citizens, that the general run of the Hindu community will not tolerate it, that the extremist groups in the so-called Parivar will never realise their horrid objectives and that a united, liberated, democratic and secular India will remain the hope the reality of the future.
