Contemporary Hinduism: A Quest for Identity

R.P. Singh (Author)
Synopsis This book attempts to answer a few questions about Hindus in the contemporary Indian context. The questions this book addresses relate to the identity of Hindus.Who is entitled to define that identity-a political party, a cultural group or the self appointed guardians of its purity? Out of the multiple facets that Hinduism encompasses which one of these is the true face of a real Hindu? The author believes that the so-called communalism or the fundamentalism among them is a delayed response of a thousand years of unabated onslaught on their rituals and cultural activities? By its nature there is no possibility of the existence or survival of a communal streak in them. What one sees today is the reflection of the bogey created by our ''secular politics''. The day politics ceases to interfere with social and cultural beliefs and practices of Hindus the so-called Hindu communalism would vanish. By their nature Hinduism and fundamentalism are total strangers. Then why like Sancho Panza attack windmills?
