    Though delayed, justice has finally been done to the man. After years of prevarication, the Bharatiya Janata Party has at last publicly and explicitly owned up Vinayak Damodar Savarkar as its cult figure. The BJP seeks to displace Gandhi from his position as the pre-eminent symbol of Indian nationalism and project, in his stead. Savarkar as a national hero. This is an enterprise, however, that is fraught with risk. The risk of the truth coming out in the open. This book investigates the figure of Savarkar, the author of the term ?Hindutva?. What it finds does not add up to a flattering portrait. Savarkar rejected the inclusive, secular concept of ?territorial nationalism? and advocated the exclusivist, communal concept of ?cultural nationalism?. He repeatedly apologized and gave written undertakings to the government. He was directly connected to more than one murderr. And most damagingly, as the book demonstrates in great detail, it was Savarkar who led the conspiracy to assussinate Mahatma Gandhi on that fateful winter evening of 1948. Inimitably forthright and hardhitting, A.G. Noorani builds a devastating case against Savarkar. With a wealth of information and historical detail, this book is a must for all those interested in modern Indian politics and the history of communalism in India. A.G. NOORANI is a lawyer, constitutional expert, and political commentator. His columns appear regularly in Hindustan Times, Frontline, Economic and Political Weekly and Dainik Bhaskar. He is the author of The Kashmir Question, Badruddin Tyabji, Ministers? Misconduct, Brezhnev?s Plan for Asian Security, the Presidential System, The Trial of Bhagat Singh and Constitutional Questions in India. His most recent books are Islam and Jihad (LeftWord Books, New Delhi and Zed Books, London and New York, 2002), and Citizens? Rights, Judges and State Accountability (Oxford University Press, New Delhi, 2002).

    People like AG Noorani shuld not be allowed to write books.

    Book is full of crap, so if you are a leftist or a sickular go ahead and buy it as this book has all the vitamins and proteins to sustain you for another decade. Everyone else with genuine interest in history have no business reading this bullshit dished out by the evergreen Noorani.

    Utterly biased

    Poeple like AG Noorani should not write history as they look at it from a tinted glass. unfortunately, despite getting humiliated for their misdeeds, they continue to produce stuff that is convenient to them and the ideology they believe. bashing savarkar is easy but doesn't mr noorani agree with supreme court verdict?

    Let's not forget, Mr Noorani has issued an "unconditional public apology" for accusing RSS of being involved in Mahatma Gandhi's murder. This proves that Mr Noorani's views a...
