WHAT IS THIS HINDU RASHTRA ?

On Golwalkar's Fascistic Ideology
and the Saffron Brigade's Practice

By

Sitaram Yechuri

" Seen together with the earlier-toted intolerance against the minorities, this understanding maps out the vision of purges that may well put to shame Nazi fascism if the Saffron Brigade succeeds in establishing its concept of a Hindu Rashtra. "

Yechuri, Chapter 8

" [T]he Saffron Brigade all along opposed and continues to oppose today the linguistic re-organisation of States... Its current slogan, "Hindu, Hindi, Hindusthan", portends what its political project holds for the future of crores of non-Hindi speaking people of India."

-- Yechuri, Chapter 5
