Globalization and Militant Hindu Nationalism

This book is an attempt to propose new directions for Christian theology in India in the present context of globalization and militant Hindu nationalism. In recent years, Christians have been the target of violent attacks by militant Hindu nationalists. Critically analyzing the history of Christianity and militant Hindu nationalism in India, this book contends that militant Hindu nationalism originated in the context of Western colonialism, which brought about a crisis of religious, cultural, and national identity among Hindus. Moreover, contemporary globalization is perceived as recreating colonization-like situations, only now at a staggering speed and on a global level.The contemporary attacks on Christians by militant Hindu nationalists must be understood within the dynamics of globalization. The Church in India needs to respond to this crisis. The author proposes that through a renewed theological initiative based on the three traditional areas of focus of Indian theology inculturation, interreligious dialogue, and social justice - the Church can become genuinely Indian and address the crisis arising from globalization and militant Hindu nationalism.

APPROPRIATION OF YOGA AND OTHER INDIGENOUS KNOW...

Globalization of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) has posed an unprecedented threat to the existence of an Indigenous Knowledge system. There is an increasing amount of appropriation of indigenous knowledge, whereby corporations from rich countries are claiming proprietary rights over knowledge that has belonged to cultures and people of indigenous communities for hundreds of years. IPRs have been inappropriately utilized hindering development and perpetuating poverty within indigenous knowledge holding communities. This book attempts to frame the current debate at the intersection of IPRs and indigenous knowledge, bringing in the case studies on the appropriation of traditional Yoga of Hindu and the Zia sun of Zia Pueblo of New Mexico. By bringing two case studies on appropriation, this project employs legal critical scholarship to analyze how the current IPR regime supports commodifying traditional knowledge and artifacts such as Yoga and the Zia sun, and recommends for customary law as a viable alternative to the IPRs.

Rituals and Environmental Conservation
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Environmentalism has been criticised as being excessively science oriented and bureaucratic. This view has developed largely due to a lack of engagement with cultural, philosophical & religious aspect of societies in the context of environmentalism. For example, lived experience and innate environmental values as expressed &conserved in the form of religious rituals have not been elaborated in detail. In response to this gap, this work considers the popular Hindu rituals performed by lay persons centred around Peepal tree (Ficus religiosa) . The work examines the impact of globalization & urbanization on rituals around Peepal, for which scientific evidence exists to show it s beneficial influence on the environment. The study was carried out in urban, semi urban & rural location in an Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Research methods like interview, participant & non participant observation were used. Significant amount of protection of Peepal tree due to its religious and ritualistic importance was found and there is an increase in the ritual activities due to influence of astrologers & media. This may have both positive and negative effects on both the tree & rituals.
