This book is an original study along with compilation of several recorded versions on Gujarat Carnage. The gory tales of political murder of innocent Muslims in the context of the Ram Temple construction by demolishing Babri-Masjid has exposed the new angle of Hindutva psyche-that they are terrorists of the worst kind. There is a fundamental difference between jehadi kind of Islamic terrorism and the Hindutva terrorism.
The Jehadi Islamic terrorism of the kind of Bin Laden aims at its so-called enemies with mass destructive weapons. They killed people at one stoke in the World Trade Centre. The death there, too, was of innocent American. That death was painless. It was like the death of people sitting in a plane and it crashes down to the ground killing all those inside at once. A killing is killing and it deserves to be condemned. That is the reason why all Muslims also joined in condemnation of that killing.
The Gujarat kind of terrorism is more brutal. It was organized by the very ruling party. Even in form and dastardliness Gujarat was worse. Along with cold-blooded killing of people, raping of women, tearing off the stomachs of pregnant women, burning the foetus and the mother alive with awe of celebration is worst form of terrorism. Nobody celebrated the jihad terrorism. The killer themselves got killed But the Hindutva terrorists celebrated the Gujarat kind of terrorism almost on everyday basis. This is a more serious mode of religious terrorism. This mode of terrorism has its origins in its casteist brutalization of the human self.
Brahminism is the root cause for the carnage that took place in Gujarat and for the series of such events that are bound to take place in different parts of the country in the near future.
Instead of facing the challenges posed before the caste system through the demands for justice put forward by the Dalits and Tribals for the wrongs done to them for thousands of years, Brahminism is diverting the attention of the people by saying that the minorities are the root-cause for all evils of this nation.
If the proponents of Hindutva are allowed to establish Hindu Rashtra in India as they claim they will, that will be the Brahminic Rashtra, which would perpetuate the age-old discriminatory caste system. These forces use this tactic, to maintain their Aryan-Brahminic supremacy.
