Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat released a book on Cultural Terrorism: Conflicts and Debates on Cultural Pasts, which was penned by Dr BS Harishankar in Kozhikode, Kerala recently. Indus Scrolls Press is a collection of 21 articles authored by Dr. Harishankar. The book reflects on how India's history has been immensely influenced by vested interests, in particular NGOs belonging to Christian missionaries, both within India and abroad..
The main focus is on cultural terrorism and how various techniques are used to threaten Hindu culture through the use of archaeology, linguistics and genetic studies. The insidious role of the Church-Communist axis in exploiting historical and archaeological evidence has been discussed in detail. Archeological and genetic evidence is presented that Aryans did not come from outside India.
Many ancient civilizations have been washed aside by both Christianity and Islam. Erasing these ancient cultures, including new civilizations, is referred to as spiritual conquest. The threat of terrorism to the national traditions and society of a nation is prevalent in India and other nations. In this regard, the work of the author brings us a timely note.
