Publisher's Summary

"I thought the nation was coming to an end", wrote Khushwant Singh, looking back on the violence of Partition that he was witness to over half a century ago. He believed then that he had seen the worst that India could do to herself. But after the violence in Gujarat in 2002, he had reason to feel that the worst, perhaps, is still to come. 

Analysing the communal violence in Gujarat in 2002, the anti-Sikh riots of 1984, the burning of Graham Staines and his children, the targeted killings by terrorists in Punjab and Kashmir, Khushwant Singh forces us to confront the absolute corruption of religion that has made us among the most brutal people on earth. He also points out that fundamentalism has less to do with religion than with politics. And communal politics, he reminds us, is only the most visible of the demons we have nurtured and let loose upon ourselves. 

A brave and passionate book, The End of India is a wake-up call for every citizen concerned about his or her own future, if not the nation’s.

The end of India, is just round the corner!

The great writer & scholar, Khushwant Singh, could see the future, crystal clear. He knew, if the BJP comes into power, it would be the end of India, as we know, a plural, composite and all-accepting culture and generations to come would curse us, for making this govt our dream-maker!
A must for all people who love India to read this prophetic vision as he died in 2013!
