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 businessyou 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 NagarkarMr. 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..

uselessthe 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........

informative bookelaborate and supportive data on movements that had a niche but undeniable impact on Indian national struggle. For students of history this is a good support and additional read.

A book for a bookFor all those who have read the loq IQ work of Ambedkar 'Riddles of Hinduism' would find this book useful. It carries on the same lines and extensively quotes Ambedkar to prove the point. If they have the problem that at times context is not taken into account, they should first question Ambedkar.

Is Ambedkar really A freedom fighter as people of my generation think .Clearly illustrates how British with their divide & rule policy has made their stay in india credible to the world. The strategy is to project some people as champions of their people in international fora, then take them into the goverment, then make them to speak against the freedom of india and make them to project Hinduism as corupt.

The problem with Arun shourie!One thing that Arun Shourie suffers from is an utter lack of imagination.He has a way of looking at the world and has strong and, i would say, unreasonable beliefs and anybody else who does not look at the world in the way he does is wrong.Everything is black and white for Mr Shourie.
