The articles in this book analyse the quest between Religion, Ethnicity and Resistance and whether they can coexist or not.
For a nation like India, religion and ethnicity comes in multitude and so does its complexity. In such state of heterogeneity, resistance comes handy.
Resistance often has positive, even heroic connotations too. Yet it defies precise definition. It has two facets viz., violent as well as non-violent. The problem of non-violent resistance is, of course, not specific to any religion, instances of violent resistance galore in History.
The problem of resistance, religion and ethnicity must be posed theoretically; that would surely involve questioning the definition of religion, ethnicity and resistance too, that has been addressed by the contributors in this book.
