Communal propaganda projects the commonality of social, political and economic interests of all members of a particular religion, caste or other ascriptive group. It creates an illusion of the universal content of secular interest of unequal individual members of a religious group.

India with one-sixth of the world’s population, functioning as a democratic unity in spite of different languages, different religions and different ethnicities, is a forerunner facsimile towards a hopeful global future. The dark forces of communalism would like to destroy such a facsimiile

Communalisation of Indian polity is a fait accompli and this has been taken due note of by international authorities and global communities. Therefore our struggle against communalism, through this book has global dimensions, besides national ones.

Analyses of this publication will remain valid until the process of communalization of Indian politics, which has already gone very far and continue to move apace, is reversed.
