Uproot Hindutva: The Fiery Voice of the Liberation Panthers
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.
