Details: About the Book: Godses Children: Hindutva Terror in India 2nd Edition Hindutva terror has finally emerged. It was on 6 April, 2006when Nanded witnessed a bomb blast at the house of LaxmanRajkondwar, a longtime RSS activist, killing his son and anotherSangh activist. The blast brought to the fore the systematic mannerin which people associated with RSS and allied outfits were engagedin making and storing explosives, imparting arms training andplanning to bomb minorities as part of their mission to establishHindu Rashtra in India. Five years later, investigating agenciesare in the know of the involvement of Hindutva supremacists indozens of earlier and later blasts like Malegaon and SamjhautaExpress. The role of international linkages and networks ofdifferent Hindutva formations in collecting funds, mobilisingresources and supporting the cause has added further ferocity tothis project. The present book, the first comprehensive treatmentof the subject, shows that Hindutva terror is not a mere regionalor rare phenomenon. Apart from bringing forth the commonality oftactics used by these terror modules, the book also looks at thephenomenon historically and presents hitherto unexplored evidence.It also underlines the Himalayan task which awaits theinvestigating agencies as they are yet to nab any of themasterminds, planners, financiers and ideologues of these terrorattacks despite ample evidence.
