Riddles in Hinduism : The Annotated Critical Selection

Dr. Bheemrao Ambedkar


In Circulation

Hinduism claims one billion adherents worldwide. To all those who hold this religion dear, B.R. Ambedkar poses many riddles: is it even a religion? Who is a Hindu? Like most of his writings, riddles in Hinduism remained unpublished during his lifetime. When the state of Maharashtra finally printed it in 1987, The Shiv sena sought a ban.

While the liberals looked away, the Dalit movement circulated copies. At a time when the state and the Hindu right are painting Ambedkar as a ‘Hindu’ figure, this fierce critique—now with illuminating annotations— shows us how and why Ambedkar had no love for Hinduism. In his introduction, Kancha Ilaiah shepherd tells us why Hinduism is facing its biggest ever challenge from dalitbahujans. Ambedkar was one, today there are a million Ambedkar.
