Puppets of Faith: Theory of communal strife

By BS Murthy

General non-fiction, Education & teaching, Current affairs, Religion & spirituality, Biography & memoir, Psychology & philosophy | eBook


This thought-provoking work seeks to demystify Muhammad 'n un-glamorise Islam in an artful form by dissecting the anatomy of the faith shaped by Quran. Besides, it depicts the psyche of the Musalmans, shaped by the proclivities of their prophet, vicissitudes of his life and the attitudes of his detractors, which the mechanism of their umma perpetuates. More to the point, aided by “I’m Ok – You’re Ok”, the path-breaking work of Thomas A. Harris and Roland E Miller’s “Muslim Friends–Their Faith and Feeling”, this book, for the first time ever, psycho-analyzes the imperatives of the Muslim upbringing, which has the potential to turn a faithful and a renegade alike into a fidayeen. Also, apart from delving into the ironies of the faiths that affected the fate of the peoples, eclipsed the cultures of communes, altered the course of history and afflict the politics of the day, this book examines how the sanaatana 'Hindu' dharma came to survive in India, in spite of the combined onslaught of Islam and the Christianity on Hinduism for over a millennium. This book is for those who wish to be aware of the follies of their faith and the foibles of others to lighten the burden of dogma and reduce the baggage of prejudice postulated in its thirty-four well-structured chapters. Bernard Shaw had stated that Islam is the best religion with the worst followers but if only he could have read this work, he would've reversed his stance. Possibly in a new genre, this free ebook is a book for our times. Really, this is a book for our times

Schooled in letter-writing, BS Murthy, born 27 Aug 1948, graduated to articulate his managerial ideas in thirty-odd published articles before penning fiction with the ‘novel art’. Beginning with Benign Flame: Saga of Love, he fashioned two more ‘plot and character’ driven novels, Jewel-less Crown: Saga of Life and Crossing the Mirage: Passing through youth before switching over to the narrative non-fiction with Puppets of Faith: Theory of Communal Strife. After versifying the Sanskrit epics, Vyasa’s Bhagvad-Gita (Treatise of self-help) and Valmiki’s Sundara Kãnda (Hanuman’s Odyssey) in contemporary English verse (can also be found in Constitution Society.com, Boloji.com, Vedanta Spiritual Library, gatewayforindia.com etc.) and ascending Onto the Stage - Slight Souls and other stage and radio plays, he returned to fiction in the stream of consciousness mode with Glaring Shadow - A stream of consciousness novel and Prey on the Prowl - A Crime Novel. And finally he reached the short story horizon with Stories Varied - A Book of Short Stories.
