In Worshipping False Gods: Ambedkar, And The Facts Which Have Been Erased, readers are offered a critical perspective on Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar and his involvement in the Indian constitution.
Summary Of The Book
This book is a critical analysis of the Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, who was chosen as the greatest Indian by History TV and CNN-IBN. In Worshipping False Gods: Ambedkar, And The Facts Which Have Been Erased, Shourie attempts to provide readers with what he states are the “real facts” about Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.
Through extensive research on the topic, Shourie has divided his analysis into three main sections. The first section addresses areas such as Dr. Ambedkar’s role as a freedom fighter and his opposition to the Congress party, Mahatma Gandhi, and the freedom movement. In the second section, Shourie addresses two perspectives on social reform, both Gandhi’s and Dr. Ambedkar’s, with references to the Pune Pact. In the third section, Shourie talks in great detail about the evolution of the Indian constitution since 1925, and the contributions made by some important figures of that time.
With his book, Worshipping False Gods: Ambedkar, And The Facts Which Have Been Erased, Shourie aims to make his readers re-examine their earlier beliefs about India’s freedom struggle.

All those who accused BJP of attempting to saffronize History when Murli Manohar Joshi spoke about re-writing Indian History must read.
This book contains incontrovertible evidence to prove that we as an Independent country are, beyond any trace of doubt, guilty of distorting history!! That too within the first fifty years of independence itseof!!
When this is the case, how much an alien ruler should have done that if only to retain power for over 2 centuries.
If the truth revealed by the book that Dr. BR Ambedkar had not even once spoken in favour of India getting freedom should shock a few, impressions held about him by the erstwhile Vice-roy as conveyed in the exchange of tested telegrams etc., more that prove that the British regime had a very opinion about his integrity itself!
How many people are able to relate to the import of his one sentence 'When concessions are granted politics evolve around those concessions? Indeed this thought line is thought provoking to say the least.
This is a great book, it is a MUST READ for all educated people in the sense as defined by Nani Palkivala: Education enables a person to think for himself independently.
To my mind more people would have read it if only size of the book was reduced to just around 250 pages or so.
While all other taller leaders of india were attending to the task of liberating us from the ENGLISH, someone was required to do correction within the system, to liberate us from ourselves, for without internal vibrancy no social fabric can sustain for long. and india's society was rotten to the core.
Right from brahmin, to kshatriya, to vaishya everyone was suffering.
a brahimn suffers because inspite of having all the good qualities of a student, he cannot go abroad for studies.
a kshatriya, alone had to shoulder the responsibility of defending the country, which was full of immoral bigots, sycophants, so the motivation was already in short supply.
likewise a vaishya was looted everytime the governmet changed. and so his loyalty was towards the king he was having a good relation, than one of the same religion.
and lesser said the better about shudra.
we were in dire need of someone who could take us out of this morass, we were in.
and it is here that DR. AMBEDKAR played his role brilliantly.
he liberated us from ourselves, and made us realise our mistake.
AND yes there was a reason for him to be apprehensive of INDIA's independence.
for, history has taught us, and to him as well, that whenever the guards changed at delhi, not much happened in society with respect to social progress.
when the power passed into muslim hands from rajputs, nothing substantial, nay nothing indeed, was done to help oppressed, and the when RAJPUTS converted to islam, shudra's to islam, and the status quo neevr changed.
what he was up against was a 3000 years old tyranny, and i will certainly ignore his negligible contribution in direct freedom struggle, but he more than made up for that by championing the cause of oppressed castes.
in my opinion, this book does not even make a scratch, let alone a dent, in my respect to such a great luminary.
PS: and yes as you can see from my signature, that i am a BRAHMIN, but sorry, not a bigot.
JAI BHEEM(saying jai bheem, doesn't mean that i am disrespecting anyone,but i am offering my respect to one great STATESMAN)
Mr. Eknaath Nagarkar the only reason he was not to call for full independence was his people were not to get any freedom. it was the upper caste who would be benefiting from any kind of freedom. His saw these people were not in favour of social reforms and hence his fight for freedom was from the Hindu mentality. the changes we are seeing in the society is only due to his effort. and more over he only gave women right to vote of which the upper caste were dead against..
you cant expect more from such politicians. Main problem with the writer is that he has quoted incidents without context. Even Lord Krishna statements during Mahabharat seem to be that of a criminal, if talked without context. So, dear readers its a book with incomplete knowledge. But definitely if you already hate Mr. Ambedkar, then this book will promote your such feelings.
First of all let me state that i have not read this book.I am not here to give a review of arun shourie's work.
I am here to debate about the necessity of such a book.No dalit will ever stand up against Ambedkar and No person other than a dalit is interested in knowing about Ambedkar.So whats the point in writing such a long book which will be read only by dalits who will never go against their God-Baba Saheb Ambedkar!
By the way Mr Arun Shourie here is a quote :
"Every man who repeats the dogma of Mill that one country is no fit to rule another country ,must admit that one class is not fit to rule another class" - Dr B.R Ambedkar
I pity Shourie because of wasting his time in writing a book which reflects his chauvinistic attitude!
We can be patriotic and human beings at the same time.Ambedkar was a living example of this.I am a dalit(So stop guessing about my identity).I find Ambedkar's ideas to be the most useful if we are to become a modern and a free nation.And Mr Shourie ,a free nation does not mean freedom just from colonial rule.A nation free from poverty, a nation free from discrimination-social,economic and political,a nation free from untouchability.This is what Ambedkar dreamt of.Unfortunately Shourie could not see things this far.He thinks life to be a battle between the good and the evil.In that case who will watch the battle?.
Enlightened ones like Ambedkar will watch the battle!
Mr Shourie,give a thought to changing the way you look at things and dont provoke the future generation to commit the same mistakes again.
Ambedkar is the last social reformer known to dalits.Dont waste your time in tarnishing his image .His popularity can only grow with time.Today U.P is the most sought after constituency in India.All the campaigning is done in the name of Ambedkar.Be it Congress or BSP.This is because he was not a politician ,he was a Social Reformer!
"Political tyranny is nothing compared to the social tyranny and a reformer who defies society is a more courageous man than a politician who defies Government.
