About the Book:
In 1948, we observed two contrasting images of the Hindu Mahasabha leaders. In the first image, SP Mookerjee was being included within the Nehru cabinet while in the second image another well known Hindu Mahasabha leader VD Savarkar is being put on trial for Gandhi’s murder. Obviously, the question rises do these contrasting images embody in themselves two contradictory histories of Hindu Mahasabha? If yes how have these two histories continue to exist within the same organization for such a long time? This book traces the ideologies, activities and dilemmas that defined the Mahasbha in 1940s.
