Punchline

Irfan's cartoons visualize the thoughts of the Aam Aadmi and few of his recent political cartoons are highly acclaimed. Famously called the “political cartoonist Irfan” got sentenced for 4 months for making a cartoon on former Chief Justice of India in 2007. This matter is still pending in the Supreme Court of India. His political humor exceeds all limits and brings the harsh facts pictured through dumb yet vicious cartoons.

RSS: Marketing Fascism as Hindu Nationalism

Indian democratic-secular polity is passing through the most critical phase since its birth on August 15, 1947. It has been lately taken over by the RSS/BJP leaders committed to the Hindutva politics. This politics of Hindu separatism was neither part of modern India’s anti-colonial heritage nor has been faithful to the principles enshrined in the Preamble of the Constitution of India. The protagonists of Hindutva politics decried and continue to decry democracy, secularism, egalitarianism and an all-inclusive India. This book provides an insight into the philosophical moorings of the followers of Hindutva and their action plans to convert India into a theocratic Hindu State. This Hindutva project led by RSS is in full steam with the BJP victory in the last parliamentary elections held in 2014. It is no more a hidden agenda as the incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi identifies himself as Hindu nationalist. This study is based solely on the internal documents of the RSS/BJP and other fraternal Hindutva organizations. It is hoped that this RSS Reader will help researchers and common readers in getting acquainted with an ideology and its perpetrators who present the most lethal challenge to democratic-secular India. Shamsul Islam taught political science at the University of Delhi (1973-2013). As an author, columnist and dramatist he has been writing against religious bigotry, dehumanization, totalitarianism, persecution of minorities, Dalits and women. He is known for his work on the rise of nationalism, specially religion based nationalism and its development in India and the world. He writes in English, Hindi and Urdu.

Savarkar Unmasked

Quote by Khushwant Singh: [Savarkar] in his presidential speech at the Mahasabha conference in Ahmedabad in 1937, said: ‘As it is, there are two antagonistic nations living side by side in India’…The Hindu Mahasabha had no problem in joining the Muslim League Government in Sind and Bengal. He was also the supporter of the princely order and thought it would not be a bad idea if the King of Nepal became the Hindu emperor of India…If you want to recheck what I have written, take a look at Shamsul Islam’s book on Savarkar. —Khushwant Singh

Secrets of the Kashmir Valley: My journey through the conflict between India and Pakistan

“Qazi skillfully connects us to the intense, complex and remarkably strong women of Kashmir. Their fascinating and emotionally touching stories are deeply moving and need to be heard.”
ROSS KAUFFMAN, Academy Award-winning film-maker of “Born Into Brothels”

In this timely and important book, Farhana Qazi traces the lives of women in the deeply divided Kashmir Valley and shows how they have survived a 60-plus-year conflict. With unique access, Qazi is an American storyteller who travels extensively through the region to interview mothers of martyrs, militants’ wives, prisoners, protestors, and political activists. Her evocative reporting and extensive interactions brings to life these women’s stories—their individual oral histories make up a collective chronicle of suffering and struggle.

Ultimately, this is a hopeful book. With strong voices and will power, the women of Kashmir are changing their society. These reformers are the people leading the way forward.

This crucial book on Kashmir is a brilliant and thought-provoking work. Qazi’s unique perspective on Kashmir and deep passion for the women she writes about make this a definitive account of a proud people.”

The Stalwarts: Builders and leaders of Mushawarat

The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, or Mushawarat for short, emerged half a century ago in very difficult times when communal riots had engulfed many parts of north India and some Muslims had started even leaving the country in despair. In those difficult times, some selfless leaders of the community from all over the country came together, discussed and formed a common platform for all Muslims, to think, guide and interact with the forces in society. This book sheds lights on the extraordinary lives of those stalwarts and their followers who kept the flames burning and still manage to keep that common platform intact and strong giving voice to the community nationally and internationally.

What is Riba? (English)

A number of works deal with the issue of riba (usury) in Islam, but none of them is as comprehensive as this work which first appeared in 1936. This new edited version, together with Arabic and English translations, has been brought out in order to enrich the debate on this vital issue. The author, Allamah Iqbal Suhail (d. 1955), was a highly learned scholar of Islam and had deep knowledge of modern issues. He is known in the Subcontinent as a distinguished Urdu poet, freedom fighter and lawyer. With this background, he was most suited to deal with religious issues in the light of the requirements of the modern age. Allamah Suhail discusses the opinions of the fuqaha in detail and shows that they confused riba with muratala (barter) and sarf (exchange) which have little to do with riba. He shows that riba concerns only the bai al-salaf (credit/deferred) transactions. After a thorough discussion of the Islamic texts on the issue, Suhail puts forward his authoritative definition of riba and where it is applicable.

Who Killed Karkare? The Real Face of Terrorism in India

Political violence, or terrorism, by State as well as by non- State actors has a long history in India. The allegation that sections of and individual Indian Muslims indulged in “terrorism” surfaced for the first time with the ascent of the Hindutva forces in mid-1990s and became state policy with the BJP’s coming to power at the Centre. With even “secular” media joining the role as stenographers of security agencies, this became an accepted fact so much so that common Indians and even many Muslims started believing in this false propaganda. This book, by a former senior police officer, with a distinguished career that included unearthing the Telgi scam, peeps behind the propaganda screen, using material mostly in the public domain as well as his long police experience. It comes out with some startling facts and analysis, the first of its kind, to expose the real actors behind the so-called “Islamic terrorism” in India whose greatest feat was to murder the Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare who dared to expose these forces and paid with his life for his courage and commitment to truth. While unearthing the conspiracy behind the murder of Karkare, this book takes a hard look at some of the major incidents attributed to “Islamic terrorism” in India and finds them baseless.
