The vested interest, powerful and well organized, has, says the author, corrupted and crippled the oldest and the greatest of the world faiths to subserve their purpose. And, mercifully, he also gives us as to how to reform and restore the great belief system to its real self and how to create a world, with its help, full of love, compassion and justice! An ascetic, thinker and social activist, SWAMI AGNIVESH heads the Bonded Labour Front, Delhi, India, and UN’s Contemporary Forms of Slavery outfit, Geneva.
