Nehru Centre talk: Religion and Conflict in Indian History
8 South Audley Street
London, W1K 1HF
A talk by Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
In recent decades much has been written about the role of religion in the making of Indian history. From one side it has been claimed that religious differences were the main motivation for invasion and persecution whilst others reject this perspective arguing that religion was of no real significance in these events. In this talk we will look carefully at both points of view and seek, if possible, some form of viable reconciliation.
