Hindu Pad-Padashahi By Veer Savakar (Hardcover)
Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, also known as Swatantryaveer Savarkar, was a freedom fighter and an Indian independence leader and politician who coined the Hindu nationalist ideology of Hindutva. “Hindu Pad Padshahi,” refers to the idea of establishing a Hindu monarchy or a Hindu kingdom. This concept was proposed by Savarkar as part of his vision for India’s future. He believed that an independent India should be a Hindu- majority nation, where Hindu culture and values would be dominant. Savarkar’s ideas and philosophy, on the concept of “Hindu Pad Padshahi,” have been subjects of both praise and criticism. While some consider him a visionary and a champion of Hindu rights, others criticize his ideology for its emphasis on religious identity and its potential exclusionary nature.
