    1. It is apparent from the very beginning that this is a lofty book that makes you question the nuances of religions you see around you. I thoroughly enjoyed the critical thinking and the research that went into writing this book. At times, I could see the strain in the narrative where it seems to tend toward a judgement, but the author masters the art of expertly maneuvering it to maintain the open-endedness of the novel. I am sure I will read this one again in a few years, it is going in my perma [...]


    2. This is easily one of the best books I’ve read till date. It is intellectually stimulating and though heavy on history keeps the reader hooked till the last page. As a student, I’d read in bits and pieces about the Mughal rule in India. None of it was substantial enough to form an opinion. This book takes on a brave stand with unflinching truth on the atrocities and its consequences on the Indian culture.This book stands apart with its irrefutable evidences and primary sources to support the [...]


    3. In my quest to read more books based out of India and in my mother tongue which is Kannada, I picked this book up. It has been translated to English from Kannada. I was quite skeptical when I started the book, but I am so glad I read it.To give a brief synopsis, this is a story of a marriage between a Muslim and a Hindu. It also touches upon how women are expected to be the caretakers of the house and how society treats a women who has ambitions.If you are a staunch believer of either faith, I w [...]


    4. This book clearly exposes the pseudo seculars and liberals of India, it also point out the apathy of government towards the history content taught in schools of India. Though this book talks about few faiths and their teachings but it is not harsh towards any faith, it is only depicting the truth which is concealed. Essence of book is to understand that if we truly want communal harmony in the country then we must acknowledge the historical truth as it is, we need to learn from the past so we do [...]


    5. this book gives a valuable insight into the apathy of current education system towards the factual and real history. while it can be passed as a communal fiction by a lot of well educated 'left' bred intellectuals, writer has left no scope for doubt by providing his primary sources, major part of which is as old as the subject matter itself. writer seems to tear into the stubbornness arrogance and egotism of the particular faith by using their own writting. amount of research gone into writting [...]



    6. My dissatisfaction with the prevailing answers to the deep-seated questions within me led me towards this book, and it confirmed the ignorance(or a collective bias) that I felt in the rhetoric of today's public discourses. Kudos to the author who braved it all to bring out the truth. Satyameva Jayathe!


    7. Fiction set in current day as well as in the time of Mogul empire. Uses lots of history sources but mostly written as an 'expose' on the Mogul/islamic brutality and somewhat a justification for the Babri Masjid/Ayodya incident.
