Filing religion : state, Hinduism, and courts of law

Author: Daniela Berti; Gilles Tarabout; Raphaël Voix
Publisher: New Delhi, India : Oxford University Press, 2016. ©2016
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This volume explores how court actions significantly shape Hinduism in Indian and Nepalese societies, perhaps even more so than the ideology of any political party. How do courts, within the framework of secularism, deal in practice with Hinduism? The approach developed is resolutely historical and anthropological and relies on in-depth ethnography and archival research.
