In a recent literary event, she said that ‘ I will not say sorry for my writing”.
At the same time, by writing ‘Why I Am a Hindu’, and criticising the Hindutva Shashi Tharoor haven’t faced any uproar yet. In the interview to India Today, he was seen trying to project himself as a Hindu foremost, an informed Hindu who can tackle the misled Hindutva organisation. For a viewer, it may be bit heartbreaking particularly when the former UN official is known to exercises his rationality.
There is also an opinion that Tharoor has joined the Congress brigade, which now is playing ‘temple politics’ that was first tested by Rahul Gandhi in the midst of Gujarat polls. Going by this, the title of the book could easily be his political strategy to woo Hindus.
To underline the politics of ‘Why I Am a Hindu’ , let’s quote Tasleema again, She also added that ”secularism and fundamentalism… the rational illogical mind and the irrational minefield… innovation and tradition and between the people who value freedom and who do not”.
