5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Important Book !
By Harish singhal on 20 April 2021
A very powerful story which is a perfect blend of historical accuracy and an artist's imagination.

All the statements, facts are backed by citations and proofs.

Even after being historically accurate the story does not become dull and remain crisp till very end. Story revolves around a progressive Hindu women and Muslim men who fell in love and later married together.

Being an interfaith marriage she faced many hardships from family Which made her even more hard critique of hindu religion. Both being full fledged artists wrote many plays and dramas undermining the hypocrisy of Hinduism.

While making a script for a documentary of a certain historical place, she recalls memories of her childhood,which leads her to question everything including the "progressive historians" and her life decisions as a whole.

Hitherto, a progressive activist finds herself caught up in factually incorrect historical facts and lies made up by so called "progressive historians" .

This book is about her journey to discover the truth and exposing the lies which are filled in our daily life about certain historical figures.

Which leads her to question the foundation in which these so called progressive historians are trying to build hindu-muslim unity on i.e making hindu as the scrape goat for every ill in today's society,for which they manipulate historical facts and add absurd lies to make it look so.

This book also try to expose hypocrisy of islam extremist and their ignorance for other religions.

And how supremacy of their god over others is very dangerous for modern democratic India in which all gods are equal.

Some Historical facts are very harsh and might hurt some people, few might even try to deny it but one cannot deny it because everything is backed by proof.

Which further proves the point of the author which is trying to show how history is being manipulated,and how lies are feeded to the normal citizens of the country, which has made people ignorant about certain historical figures and made them glorify them even though they were tyrants.

The primary storyline is accompanied by a secondary story, which give the readers vague idea of the conditions in which Hindus were in during mugal era.
Even though the book is a good attempt by the author to undermine this problem in modern India, it is a novel and not a history book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant narration. The most important part is list of books given as evidence at the end. It is extremely important to set Indian history straight & heal the wounds of the traumatised hindus. If not genocide of hindus, world over will continue unabashedly, as a right and duty. Very relevant, especially in the current context of kashmiris being denied their past and return tto their ancestral lands. The 7 decades of congress rule has been a mere extension of the british empire. Bharath mathaki jai.
