Home to all the major religions, India is also, inevitably, host to virtually every type of religious fanatic. For centuries, Hindus, Christians, Sikhs and Muslims have waged bloody wars, sought violent conversion and declared jihad against their enemies, as their religions have been hijacked by the forces of fundamentalism.
In Holy Warriors, Edna Fernandes meets extremists of every faith and paints a uniquely vivid portrait of a country too often divided by dogma.
"This impressively researched and lucidly written book travels quickly beyond many banalities about India today. Anyone interested in exploring the complex appeal of religious extremism in half-modern societies should read it."
