Karnataka has 1.5 crore people of the Lingayat faith. The sect is called Veerashaiva-Lingayat. It is made up of Veerashaivas, who follow Basavanna and other saints, they worship Hindu Gods. Lingayats only follow Basavana. They say they are not Hindus and now want recognition for their religion. This election all parties face a divided community confronting difficult choices – should they vote for a fellow Lingayat or go with the spirit of Basavanna? If BJP with Hindutva as their political cannot accommodate the aspirations of the followers of Basavanna, can the Congress or the JD (S), be the party of Basavanna? That Kannadigas are now seeing the election as a battle of ideas is due to the ground laid by the work and lives of intellectuals like Kalburgi and Lankesh.
Social media in India is awash with right-wing trolls who incite online communal tension and abuse and sexually harass journalists, opposition politicians and anyone who questions them. But who are they? Why do they do what they do? And how are they organized? In this explosive investigation conducted over two years and including interviews with top politicians, bureaucrats, marketeers and trolls, Swati Chaturvedi finally lifts the veil over this murky subject. Riveting, urgent and deeply shocking, I Am a Troll is an essential read.
