The nullification of Article 370 and enactment of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), 2019, had been landmark legislative actions in 2019. Author Sanjay Dixit delves deep into the past and traces the events, actions and their repercussions that finally led to the Union of India introducing these two measures. He looks at these events from all perspectives-historical, social and political. For Article 370, he traces the entire history of Kashmir from its pre-Islamic past and to the events that unfolded at the time of the Partition of India, leading to the initial inclusion of Article 370 in the Constitution of India. Dixit also studies in detail the legal and constitutional labyrinths, discussing the various Presidential Orders and case laws from the Constitutional Bench jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. For CAA, Dixit traces the constitutional history of India from the time of the partition of Bengal in 1905 to the unfortunate events of the Partition in 1947. His study relies heavily on Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s analysis of the reasons for the Partition and the theology of a ‘separate nation’ that prevailed during the period. The author contends that this same theology has been staging a comeback now in the form of mazhabi pehchan which forms the crux of the anti-CAA protests. The informed position of the author, his lucidity of language and directness of approach lend clarity to his arguments and make this an accessible and important read.
“The book ‘Delhi Riots 2020: The Untold Story’ is published from ground research material on the Delhi Riots that occurred in February 2020. This material was collected by the authors and their team during their many visits to the riot-affected areas of North East Delhi. The research team met both Hindu and Muslim victims of the violence and religious leaders of both communities who attempted to de- escalate the situation. The book contains eight chapters which narrate the fact and evidence-based story of the dharna-to-danga model, planned and executed by Urban Naxal and Jihadi elements in Delhi. One of the main themes of the book is the destruction of inter-community relations in North East Delhi in the garb of Anti-CAA protests. The book shows us that hatred and violence was ignited between two communities which had been peacefully coexisting for decades, by people with ideologically vested interests. It exposes the plot behind the violence, how it was planned and how the events unfolded. The book contains details on the events of 23rd February 2020 in Jaffrabad which laid the ground for full-fledged communal riots in the area on the next day. It shows how a Genocide was committed in North East Delhi under the cover of women’s empowerment. The book uncovers the Urban-Naxal-Jihadi theories as contained in their own documents and literature. The book must be read because it shows the citizens of this country the ways in which their internal security is being compromised by fanatic ideologies.
India’s independence from the British on August 15, 1947, was preceded by its partition on religious lines having a murky history of dangerous antics and shenanigans of the likes of Muslim League, Jinnah and others; supported, either by accident or design, by Congress and its leadership. That Nehru failed miserably to control the situation, in which there was bloodshed, communal hatred, brutalization of women and loss of India’s territory, is a well-known story. The question is what would have been the status of India’s political borders had, say, Nehru been in charge of ‘unifying’ India – that is bringing together more than 500 princely states within the Indian union? We could well have been left to wishful thinking – “Had Sardar been the in-charge of the department handling unification of princely states within the Indian union”. This book, a well-researched document, takes the reader step-by-step on how Sardar went after the task; and how diligently he completed them. Of course, the story of Hyderabad and Junagarh is slightly more well-known. But do you know how Chhattisgarh and Orissa (now Odisha), or even Lunavada (in Gujarat), Deccan States and so many others were included in the Indian union? Do we today ever realise that these states were ‘not part of independent India’? That is why we say it is not only a book for history enthusiasts but all students, who ought to know the real political map of our country when it became independent.
छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज अप्रतिम थे। उनका पराक्रम, कूटनीति, दूरदृष्टि, साहस व प्रजा के प्रति स्नेहभाव अद्वितीय है। सैन्य-प्रबंधन, रक्षा-नीति, अर्थशास्त्र, विदेश-नीति, वित्त, प्रबंधन— सभी क्षेत्रों में उनकी अपूर्व दूरदृष्टि थी, जिस कारण वे अपने समकालीन शासकों से सदैव आगे रहे। राष्ट्रप्रेम से अनुप्राणित उनका जीवन सबके लिए प्रेरणा का स्रोत है और अनुकरणीय भी। छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज ने ‘हिंदवी स्वराज’ की अवधारणा दी; अपनी अतुलनीय निर्णय-क्षमता और सूझबूझ व अविजित पराक्रम के बल पर मुगल आक्रांताओं के घमंड को चूर-चूर कर दिया; अपनी लोकोपयोगी नीतियों से जनकल्याण किया। शिवाजी महाराज की तुलना सिकंदर, सीजर, हन्नीबल, आटीला आदि शासकों से की जाती है। यह पुस्तक उस अपराजेय योद्धा, कुशल संगठक, नीति-निर्धारक व योजनाकार की गौरवगाथा है, जो उनके गुणों को ग्राह्य करने के लिए प्रेरित करेगी।
