India: The Siege Within
India: The Siege Within succeeds in explaining, as no other book has done, the resilient achievements of India's secular democracy, as well as its vulnerability and failures. As such, it makes essential reading for everyone wishing to understand today's India. Here, M.J. Akbar, one of India's most distinguished journalists, discusses the origins and nature of the strains on Indian unity that have deep roots in history. Taking 1947 as his springboard, he provides a full historical, political and cultural survey of the main pressure points, and brings his analysis up to date to include the removal of Farooq Abdullah in Kashmir, and an account of his meeting with Bhindranwale, the army operation at the Golden Temple, the assassination of Mrs Indira Gandhi, and their implications for the future. Rising fundamentalism, separatism, the consequences of the Partition, the unease in Kashmir - on every side, it seems, that India's democratic unity is continually at risk.
