    ‘A passionate and thoughtful call for perspective on hot-button Indian social issues’
    Midwest Book Review


    The resounding electoral victory of Narendra Modi and the BJP in the Indian elections of 2014 makes it all the more imperative for the Western world in general and academics to get a true picture of what Hindu Nationalism stands for.The second edition of Lies, lies and More Lies. The Campaign to Defame Hindu/Indian Nationalism (pp 252. Publisher. iUniverse. 2014)does this in an objective manner.
    The last decade has seen the publication of a plethora of books like Christophe Jaffrelot’s, The Hindu Nationalist Movement in India, Thomas Hansen’s The Saffron Wave and Martha Nussbaum’s The Clash Within that have been highly critical of the Hindu Nationalist Movement in India. This genre of books has been a one-sided, prejudged narration that has failed look at the movement from the Hindu perspective or even accord Hindu Nationalism a fair and scholarly treatment. At times these books have highlighted dubious incidents to put forth their point of view or held up radical fringe elements as representative of Hindu Nationalism.
    Lies, Lies and More Lies presents the other side of the story in a balanced manner with tangible proof backed by sound references that puts paid to many of the false innuendoes against Hindu Nationalism that have been bandied around for years. This second edition of Lies, Lies and More Lies (first edition was published in 2007) contains 2 new sections (Gujarat and Babri-Masjid-Mandir Controversy), 10 new chapters and 100 more pages. It provides more evidence of the lies that have been spread about Hindu Nationalism.
    Especially revealing is the content of these two new sections. In a chapter titled, “Intellectuals or Charlatans’ which deals with the Ayodhya verdict, there is a detailed description of the judge’s rebuke directed to the detractors of Hindu Nationalism for their unethical and unprofessional attempts to influence the outcome. The same unethical conduct is evident in the SIT investigation of the Gujarat riots; the SIT report speaks of doctoring of evidence and even goes so far as to dub a witness as “highly suspicious and undesirable”.
    This book is a must read for all who wish to get a better understanding of Hindu Nationalism. It is recommended for local academics, political leaders, businessmen, and others who wish to interact with India and Indians for it enables them to understand the Hindu/Indian psyche better.
