The Myth of the Holy Cow (Paperback)Dwijendra Narayan Jha
Paperback Published: 03/02/2004
- Not available
Hugely controversial upon its publication in India, this book has already been banned by the Hyderabad Civil Court6 and the author's life has been threatened. Jha agrues against the historical sanctity of the cow in India, in an illuminating response to the prevailing attitudes about beef that have been fiercely supported by the Hindu right-wing government and the fundamentalist groups backing it.
