Abstract

The discursive power of Hindu communalism does not spring exclusively from single texts or even a chain of them as from the swift creation of a popular network of certain tropes, themes, structures of apprehension and reform, at the heart of which functions a single mobile trope to provide the necessary ideological orientation. This produces a formation of immense potency and amazing flexibility. For, it constantly accretes new meanings, whole traditions to itself producing from its formative moment a web of thought that ranges from stereotypes to statistical and sociological analysis.
