Religious Identity and Political Destiny: qHindutvaq in the Culture of Ethnicism is an ethnography of a contentious on-going debate about the place of religion in Indian civic life. Exploring Hindu nationalism from the varied perspectives of its critics in women's activist and Left intellectual circles, its ideologues, supporters, and sympathizers, Deepa S. Reddy locates qHindutvaq in a broader culture of critique in which identity movements of all kinds compete for recognition, representation, and rights. This book will be of interest to anthropologists, historians, and sociologists, as well as readers of ethno-nationalist movements, religion, activism, global feminisms, and all matters Indian/South Asian.Sahlins, Marshall, xx, 100 Saith, Sanjeev, 83 Sangh parivar, 10, 20n7, 22n15, 27, 36- 41, 55nl8, 56n26, 105, 123-5, 138, ... 136, 139, 169-72, 189n6; Western, 38, 151-52, 168, 170, 174, 176, 190nl 1; See also Hindu Code Bill; Personal Laws;anbsp;...
