Description

In February, 2002, Hindu extreme right-wing religious organizations, under the umbrella of the Sangh Parivar, organized and carried out a genocidal ethnic cleansing of Muslims in the state of Gujarat, in western India. Between 2,000 and 5,000 Muslims were slaughtered, and more than 150,000 rendered homeless and destitute. Human rights investigators, despite having earlier visited Kosovo and Afghanistan, were completely unprepared for the horrors they found in Gujarat. To date, the victims have seen no justice - particularly economic justice - and the perpetrators continue to boast of Gujarat as a laboratory of their plans for the rest of India. With the rise of Jewish and Islamic fundamentalism in the Middle East and Christian fundamentalism in the US, the Gujarat genocide looms large in a scenario of global fundamentalist wars. It is a story that reverberates in every corner of the globe where the wolves of religious fundamentalism howl at the gates of power. How are we to face this juggernaut of religious fascism, presently manifest in all major world religions?For all those who cherish human freedom from dogma and hatred, this book is not merely a case study in communalist cleansing, but a Neo-humanistic spark of liberation from the cycle of hatred. In His last discourse on this earth, Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar asked of humanity the following questions: "How can this problem be solved? How can we check these belligerent parties from implementing their outdated ideas, which may cause the physical disintegration of the country? What should be done? What should be our short term and the long-term policy? The approach should be both physical and psychic. Will simple economic theory do or is something more required? Education is a long-term program. What should be done immediately in the physical and psychic realms?"
