Description

A novel about religious fundamentalism with great relevance for the changed times in which we live.

This novel is about religious fundamentalism. Two great religions, Hinduism and Islam, confront each other, the arena is the city of Bhopal, its spectacular landscape providing a dramatic backdrop to the human drama. It tells the story of Dost Mohammed, an Afghan adventurer, who fled to India after killing a man and ended up founding the kingdom of Bhopal and Vijay Ram, his wise counselor.

The second part takes up the story of their present day descendants whose own lives are swept in the vortex of communal passions. The novel quotes passages from the holy Quran and Hindu text to show that fundamentalism is basically a misinterpretation of religion. This is a story with great relevance for the changed times in which we live, and is compulsory reading for those who are concerned with communal harmony and the true meaning of religious faith.
