ORISSA in the CROSSFIRE-Kandhamal Burning
"Orissa in the Crossfire' provides many vital details related to the Hindu-Christian violence that has frequently swept Orissa's Kandhamal district. Many have familiarized themselves with the propaganda that has fictionalized the events surrounding the Kandhamal crisis as yet another case of Hindu extremist anti-Christian violence. This book reveals the true foundations of the crisis. In agreement with the author's conclusions the US State Dept's 2009 Report on International Religious Freedom reported that, "...the underlying causes that led to the violence have complex ethnic, economic, religious, and political roots related to land ownership and government-reserved employment and educational benefits." The book also highlights the history of the indigenous people of the region.Long labeled as 'a cruel human sacrificing tribe of ruthless savages' it is time the truth be revealed. It is time for the world to learn about the Kandha 'God of Light' and their Culture of Life.
