To those who claim that India is now officially a totalitarian, fascist, Hindu Rashtra, one must ask: What kind of a Hindu Rashtra is this where a billion-strong Hindus have been, through our parliament, our courts, our education system, and our constitution, reduced to not just second-class but, rather, eighth-class citizens? What kind of a majoritarian state is this where Hindus are ruthlessly attacked and stoned on Ram Navmi, Hanuman Jayanti, Durga Pooja, and even Garba celebrations? What kind of Hindu Rashtra is this where a sitting Prime Minister shamelessly claims that minorities have the first right to the country’s resources? In what kind of Hindu Rashtra do 700,000 Kashmiri Pandits become refugees, but 40,000 Rohingya Muslims settle everywhere from Bengal to Kashmir?

What kind of Hindu Rashtra is this where the judiciary unabashedly claims that it is too late to prosecute those who raped, murdered, and ethnically cleansed lakhs of Hindus? What kind of Hindu Rashtra is this where Hindu temples are exclusively controlled by the State, where Hindus must beg for Waqf land to celebrate their festivals while the government usurps hundreds of thousands of acres of temple land and is responsible for more than 100,000 temples losing lakhs of crores in rental income? In what kind Hindu Rashtra does the Right to Education Act openly discriminate against Hindus and their schools, forcing tens of thousands of them to shut down? In what kind of Hindu Rashtra are monsters like Aurangzeb and Tipu, who perpetrated large-scale Hindu genocides, eulogized through State-sponsored publications, naming of roads and cities, and organizing of festivals? What kind of Hindu Rashtra is this where a law was about to be enacted that would have held solely Hindus guilty in a communal riot even if they were in a minority?

What kind of Hindu Rashtra is this where court judgments like the Sabarimala and legislative enactments like the Hindu Code Bill purport to “reform” only Hindu religious practices but dare not touch practices of other religions, and if they do, the decisions are promptly reversed like in the Shah Bano case? In what kind of Hindu Rashtra is there a law – The Places of Worship Act – that continues to deny the Hindus their legitimate right to correct historical injustices and reclaim thousands of demolished temples? What kind of Hindu Rashtra is this where the Waqf Act gives overarching powers to Muslims to declare a 1500-year-old Hindu temple to be on Islamic land when Islam is only 1300 years old?

If this is how a Hindu is rewarded in a Hindu Rashtra, he’d much rather be in a Muslim Rashtra because then at least there would be no pretense of equality – a Kafir will get what he deserves. In this searing commentary penned with clinical precision, the author shreds to smithereens once and for all the guilt-tripping, self-loathing fake narrative that Hindus have been duped with since Independence. A politically incorrect book with nothing but unvarnished truth, Hindus in Hindu Rashtra persuasively drives home the notion that the Hindus are living under State-sanctioned Apartheid.
