WORSHIPPING FLASE GODS (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.583

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.

good for business

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.

Reply to Mr. Eknaath Nagarkar

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..

2} Politics of Converting Budusim..

he cannot remain Hindu
i} he abused where ever he got chance .
ii} He cannot Convert to Christanity becuase he labeled as missonary had his Prestious of Leader of so called SC/St will be lost
iii} he cannot convert to ISLAM because Jinnah was here leading them.. Ambedkar Daal would dissolve there..

I thing Equality and stuff was Only to Fool the SC/ST masses ..

3} Sold SC/ST more resevation or Communal Award by bristhers for very less and Regeotiated price with gandhi in POONA pact.. whole describition is in Book..

4} if anybody tries to help SC/ST from any section of scoiety..
a} Ambedkar will create all type of hurles from doing so.. after poona pact when congress was collecting 25 lac rupee.Ambedkar was aginst it
b} Ambedkar was wheel chair revelourist is well said in book..

5} What Provked me to read this book..
I have never read about Ambedkar taking part in any National Freedom movement.
"in Cast movement yes"
Now I know the reason Why.
"Brithsers wanted to show hindu was not repreneted by Congress at least at that time..
Ambedkar was perefect tool for them.

A pointless book!

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 :

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!

Jai Bhim!

"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.

."-Dr B.R.Ambedkar.

useless

the book just seems to be a work of a political man of a political party which has been struggling.....one most important thing I would like to tell that he has quoted without telling whole context......it seems through this he has targeted his traditional votebank i.e. pandits through his work........

VERY GOOD BOOIK

Very informative. As the documents cited in the book are authentic and available,room for doubt left is very less. Usage of the content depends on the reader's bias. (View complete review)

WAS MENTIONED AS MAHAPURUSH IN MY SCHOOL BOOK!!

LOL

I pity him( Arun S.)
The 3 parameters on which he had made a conclusion about the great soul are laughable.
1st of all- Yes, Dr Ambedkar was against Gandhi and hindu religion and y shud he not be. Go and google out the manusmruti (holy book of hindus on woman). You will get an idea how derogato...

This is the worst book I have ever read. This book is written for the sole purpose of spreading venom and inflicting hatred in the minds of people with respect to Ambedkar.
