Rearming Hinduism
About the Book
Rearming Hinduism is a handbook for intellectual resistance. Through an astute and devastating critique of Hinduphobia in today’s academia, media and popular culture, Vamsee Juluri shows us that what the Hinduphobic worldview denies virulently is not only the truth and elegance of Hindu thought, but the very integrity and sanctity of the natural world itself.
By boldly challenging some of the media age’s most popular beliefs about nature,
history, and pre-history along with the usual Hinduphobic myths about Aryans, invasions,
and blood-sacrifices, Rearming Hinduism links Hinduphobia and its hubris to a predatory
and self-destructive culture that perhaps only a renewed Hindu sensibility can effectively
oppose. It is a call to see the present in a way that elevates our desa and kala to the ideals of
the sanathana dharma once again.
