Father, son and holy war ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in Hindi and English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A film examining the connection between religion, violence and male identity in India today and exploring the possibility that a key to the psychology of violence against "the enemy" is male insecurity, itself an inevitable product of the very construction of "manhood."
Rama ke naam In the name of God ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in Hindi and English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Though India is a secular state, religious fundamentalism grips much of its population. This film focuses on efforts by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to destroy a 16th century mosque in Ayodhya supposedly built by Babar, the first Mughal emperor of India. The VHP claim the mosque was built at the birthplace of the Hindu god Ram after Babar razed an existing temple; they are determined to build a new temple to Ram on the same site. This controversial issue, unresolved by successive governments, has led to religious riots costing thousands their lives and culminating in the mosque's destruction by the Hindus in 1992. Examines the motivations that led to the drastic actions of the Hindu militants, as well as the efforts of secular Indians to combat the religious intolerance

Pitra, Putra Aur Dharamyuddha Father, son and holy war ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1994 in Hindi and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the politically polarized world, universal ideals are rare. In India, as in many places, at times the vacuum is filled by religious zealotry. But why? This documentary examines Indian patriarchy, machismo, and the attitudes they generate toward women and minorities in India, as well as the exploitation of ancient history, popular culture, prejudice, and religion by the unscrupulous for political gain. Violence--whether against women or members of other regions and religions--is embraced by men as a vital component of being "a real man." If the origin of violence against "the other" lays in male insecurity, itself a product of this construction of "manhood," where do the men of India go from there? Forward, or back?
