Walden Bello traces the rise of the present-day Hindu nationalist movement from its marginal origins at the time of Indian independence to its formidable present domination of the political landscape.
The author traces the roots and roles of the torch bearers of the Hindutva movement -- a political party, a vanguard organization, and a militant mass movement -- which have drastically changed from the political mechanisms and ideals of post-Independence India and the erstwhile dominant party, Congress.
Interview with Leila de Lima, political prisoner
On August 21, her 181st day of incarceration and a week short of her birthday, Senator Leila de Lima gave me a wide ranging interview, perhaps the most extensive she has ever given. The last time I saw her was in totally different circumstances, when we faced off as opposing candidates for the Senate at a debate sponsored by Rappler in April 2016. I never imagined that at our next meeting she would be a tightly guarded political prisoner at Camp Crame.
