Description

Riding the storied Modi wave, the BJP and its allies won the 2014 general elections to form the government at the centre. While the supporters of the new government may have hoped for economic reforms and accelerated development, the past fyears have only delivered incidents of hate attacks, mob violence and an increasingly hostile attitude towards religious minorities. With questionable decisions like demonetisation still fresh in the minds of people, how did the BJP gear up for the 2019 general elections? As the Hindutva hardliners continue their clamour for a Hindu Rashtra, is the ideology strong enough to withstand the increasing unrest and discontent of the common Indian?

In this astutely observed and expertly narrated account of India’s socio-political present, Ashutosh employs his experience as a journalist as well as a politician to give us an insider’s view of India’s changing political terrain. Relying on research, observations and personal experience, Hindu Rashtra takes a hard look at the political reality of India and what its future may hold.
