The 2015 question

Professor Varshney's last column of the year 2014 takes as its topic religious conversions, a movement that has raised its head again in India. Varshney asks whether the cultural project of Hindu nationalism can undermine the economic project of the Narendra Modi government, and concludes that Mr. Modi will soon have to make a choice between ideological purity and pragmatism. Column available from the Indian Express.
