Hindus Under Siege: The Way Out

4.29  ·  Rating details ·  133 Ratings  ·  10 Reviews
The author suggests that siege against Hinduism today is visible in four dimensions:
1. Religious, in the denigration of Hindu icons:
2. Psychological; -e.g. in the foisting of a fraudulent version of our history;
3. Physical- e.g. the Islamic terrorist-driven ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Kashmir and nBangladesh, and the money-induced conversion of Hindus to Christianity;

Recommends it for: Ankshita Prasad, Sreya Chakraborty
Non-fictions can many a times be circumlocutory but not this one . It is terse and to the point . Swamy's erudition evokes envy . The utter disregard for the falsification of Indian History and the rooted callousness in amending it at the grassroots of the school curriculum is disheartening. For instance I always believed in the Aryan invasion theory taught to us in schools. The dismissal of this widely propagated theory and evidences supporting the homogeneity of the Indian ethnicity is a revel ...more

A must read book for every Indian. Though lack of copious notes makes it somewhat dubious... But still, where ever references are provided, they are excellent and thoroughly researched... Note: please keep your mind receptive while reading this book...

Subramanian Swamy is extremely erudite and he has put across clearly the basic issues our motherland is facing today. The book teaches us to be proud of our rich magnificent history and the need to revive our past glory. The five fundamentals listed are absolutely necessary and needs to be inculcated by everyone associated with this great country.

I will make it simple:
1. You can't miss this if you are a Hindustani(or an Indian).
2. You shouldn't miss this.
Read the book and my words will make a sense.
Must read by every Indian/patriot. The TRUTH is laid out all bare.

"Hindu Under Siege" is very shortest but most informative book on issues about Hindus and Hinduism. This book highlighted the most burning topic of town where its compare the siege under Hindu community.

Why Should Every Indian read this book?

Most misinterpreted fact about this book is that it is related to Hindutva and expansion of hindutva identity amongst Hindus. But, This book is far beyond and above than this hindutva identity. This book share the facts from ancient times to till date in ver

his work really is an eye-opener. We all read from the news rails about various incidents that limit Hindu freedom and atrocities against them . However, Dr.Swamy brings to light the connections of these incidents and shows us the bigger picture which is much needed in today's world.
His 'way out' listing possible solutions also talk about the realistic, executionable and practical solutions for the progress of the Hindus.
I would suggest an intellectual mind to scan these facts for oneself and r

The book clearly points out some of the most fundamental issues with the majority Hindu population of India. However it stops short of establishing a basic framework for a common Indian as to how to strive towards such a state. It has its opinion backed by the facts, and is not directed towards any community as is often alleged against Swamy.

The book is a good read. Points out some fundamental issues with India today. However in terms of a solution it doesnt provide one. Its more like a call to action for the masses. The onus is on the reader to research more and act accordingly.

At just over 130 pages its a quick read.

A very well written book that puts the Hindustani history in perspective. While we are fast asleep, a lot is happening. This book enlightens us about it.
Moreover, it does make us proud of Hindutva - a synonym for Patriotism/ Nationalism, breaking the myth that Hindutva is right-winged fanaticism.
