Drawing at the severe and theoretical thoughts of sovereignty, biopolitics, and necropolitics, this booklet examines how a normative liberal and secular realizing of India’s non secular identification is translatable by way of Hindu nationalists into discrimination and violence opposed to minoritized non secular groups. Extending those recommendations to an research of historic, political and criminal genealogies of conversion, the writer demonstrates how a priority for sovereignty hyperlinks previous and current anti-conversion campaigns and laws.
The booklet illustrates how sovereignty informs the making of secularism in addition to spiritual distinction. the point of interest on sovereignty sheds mild at the demeanour within which non secular distinction turns into some degree of reference for the religio-secular idioms of Bombay cinema, for criminal decisions on communal violence, for human rights enterprises, and people looking justice for communal violence. This wide-ranging exam and dialogue of the trajectories of (anti) conversion politics via ancient, felony, philosophical, renowned cultural, archival and ethnographic fabric bargains a cogent argument for moving the stakes and rethinking the connection among sovereignty and non secular freedom. The booklet is a well timed contribution to broader theoretical and political discussions of (post) secularism and human rights, and is of curiosity to scholars and students of postcolonial stories, cultural reviews, legislation, and spiritual studies.
