Gujarat After Godhra: Real Violence, Selective Outrage

Ramesh N Rao (Author)
Synopsis This collection of essays has been put together for several reasons, the least of which is to rationalize the violence in Gujarat after the burning to death of 60 Hindus returning from a pilgrimage in the town of Godhra on February 27, 2002.The book counters the mostly one-sided presentation of facts and analyses appearing in mainstream Indian English media, and the coordinated and orchestrated campaign against the BJP-led government in Gujarat and at the Center by vested interests. This book also critically analyzes the international efforts at demonizing Hindu groups in Gujarat, as epitomized by the hurried report by human rights watch. The contributors to the book are academics, journalists, doctors and students. Their essays reflect a range of opinions, critiques on media reports, and thoughtful analyses of the religious divide in India.
