Interreligious Dialogue and the Partition of India

Hindus and Muslims in Dialogue about Violence and Forced Migration

«Set amidst the furious fervour of India's partition, this empathetic account is testimony of how those at the receiving end of violence could convert narratives of horror into narratives of hope. Perceptive political analysis intersects with passionate theological imagination to paint a poignant, yet profound, picture of the boundary crossing potential of the faith in the context of boundary reifications.»

«Set amidst the furious fervour of India's partition, this empathetic account is testimony of how those at the receiving end of violence could convert narratives of horror into narratives of hope. Perceptive political analysis intersects with passionate theological imagination to paint a poignant, yet profound, picture of the boundary crossing potential of the faith in the context of boundary reifications.»

«In this informative, evocative, and provocative work, Aguilar interweaves anecdotal and experiential account with penetrating critical analysis. Traversing India's modern history as well as other contexts highlights how hostility arising from the rejection of diverse others leads to the mutual pollution of destructive violence. The response to toxic interreligious behaviour is the patient journey of deep, interpersonal, interreligious dialogue. Aguilar deftly draws the reader into his own such journeying and allied theological reflection.»
