Riddles in Hinduism: The Annotated Critical Selection

This book is about Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar
"Riddles in Hinduism: The Annotated Critical Selection" unveils the provocative insights of B.R. Ambedkar, a pivotal figure in the fight for racial justice, religious freedom, and indigenous rights. Originally withheld from publication and only released by the State of Maharashtra in 1987 amid controversy, this book challenges the very foundations of Hinduism. Ambedkar, with his incisive questioning—Is Hinduism truly a religion? Who qualifies as a Hindu?—illuminates the systemic inequities embedded within the religion. This edition, enriched with critical annotations, brings to light Ambedkar's rigorous critique at a time when his legacy is being co-opted by Hindu nationalist narratives. Kancha Ilaiah's introduction further explores why Hinduism is now confronting unprecedented scrutiny from the Dalit-Bahujans, descendants of Ambedkar's legacy. Published on April 25, 2016, this book is essential for adult education groups seeking to understand the complexities of social justice through the lens of a revolutionary leader's struggle against entrenched religious hierarchies. Engage with this compelling work to explore how Ambedkar's challenges to Hinduism remain fiercely relevant in today's socio-political climate.
