Uproot Hindutva: The Fiery Voice of the Liberation Panthers

Front Cover
Popular Prakashan, 2004 - Dalits - 248 pages
3 Reviews
Thirumaavalavan analyses the various roles of Hindutva (ideology of the Hindu right] in sustaining the hegemony of the caste system. He speaks provocatively of the need to counter Hindutva with a Tamil identity that can reach beyond its region to other oppressed peoples. He speaks of Eelam -- the cause of the Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka -- of the refusal to be Hindu and of the right to conversion, of women's rights, of the heritage of the dalits, of the need to follow the guidelines of the dalit reformer, Dr B R Ambedkar, among other issues. Always unflinchingly honest and hard-hitting, the collection reveals new currents in Dalit politics.

this book is utter crap,this guy is a failure.this book is just written to fill his bank account from the money he get from christian and muslims.First let him try to uproot casteism in christianity and islam and then speak about hinduism.Ambedkar is another crap,he asked dalits to convert to buddhism,but unfortunately srilankan tamils majority of whom are hindus(Pillai,Brahmins etc) were murdered by offsprings of buddha is srilanka..I am damn sure only religion which is perfect if followed and read correclty is hinduism.IF thol Thiruma who is failure is just concluded elections in TN can challenge with ordinary person like me abt this topic i wud defeat him.
