Nehru Centre talk: Religion and Conflict in Indian History

Nehru Centre Event
Thursday, 30 August 2012 - 6:30pm

Nehru Centre
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.

I am neither a historian or a religious scholar. However according to me your talk was most illuminating even for an ignoramus like me.

In my humble opinion your comments about the current situation in India i.e.pursuit of westernisation and wealth at the cost of all ethical and morneither all values (religious in other words) was absolutely spot on! The question is how and who can lead India out of this!

Thanks once again.
