Storyline

Since gaining independence in 1947, India has been a secular state. But now, as religious fundamentalism grips much of India's population, the greatest danger to the nation's extremely strained social fabric may come not from Sikh or Muslim separatists, but from Hindu fundamentalists who are appealing to the 83% Hindu majority to redefine India as a Hindu nation. Written by Just a Human

A documentary about the Ayodhya dispute.
29 July 2008 | by siddharthbirdiSee all my reviews

One of the best Indian documentaries i have ever seen. It took nearly six of legal dispute before it was finally aired on doordarshan(Indian state television),and still created a furore. A hard hitting documentary for those who seek the truth about the issue.

It deals with the the politicization of the Ayodhya dispute and it's influence on the rise of militant Hindutva, also the impressions the dispute made on various communities. It shows the common man's apathy towards the whole dispute and the inherent brotherhood between men being challenged by communal forces. It also questions the integrity of the religious leaders supporting the cause, and shows the indifference of politicians to the plight of the common man. Another important point made in the documentary is the caste divide that exists on the issue.
