This volume examines how religion is intrinsically related to politics in India. Based on studies from states across the length and breadth of India, it looks at political formations that inform political discourse on the national level and maps the trajectory of religion in politics.

The chapters in this volume:

  • discuss contemporary trends in Indian politics, including Hindutva, citizenship bills and mob violence;
  • draw on fieldwork conducted across states and regions in India on critical themes, including the role of religion in electoral process, political campaigns and voting behaviour, political and ideological mobilization, and state politics vis-à-vis religion, among minorities;
  • focus on the emerging politics of the 21st century.

The book will be a key reference text for scholars and researchers of politics, religion, sociology, media and culture studies, and South Asian studies.
