Secular horror: A true story of 15 years ordeal with Indian Secularism
3 in stock
This remarkable book by Shamsul Islam is a terse reminder to us all that history and society are immensely more complex than the simplicities we reduce this to in your own understanding of the past and the present. One of the commonest reduction is the image of ourselves and of others in undifferentiated, homogenous entities, each enclosed in a self-contained box. Thus the Partition of India took place because the Muslims wanted a separate homeland and Hindus wanted an undivided Bharat. No shades of views, no variation of opinions, least of all any mutually shared space is left with even a shadow of possibility within this image, That is the common take on issues in our everyday life and it acquires a greater self-assurance when issues come to a head.
