“Every fascist regime needs communities and groups it can demonize in order to thrive. It starts with one group or two. But it never ends there. A movement built on hate can only sustain itself by continually creating fear and strife… No one is safe. We must realize this if we hope to keep India alive,” reads the excerpt from The End of India.
When it was written, The End of India had elicited fury amongst many people who termed it provocative and insulting. The book was published during the tenure of the BJP-led government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
