We live in an era of nation-states. Nationhood is predicated on shared sense of past and a common purpose of future. More than nation-state, India is a civilization, a complete civilization. To keep this civilization fresh and vibrant, winds from all directions are imperative for its nourishment. But, winds cannot be allowed to build into destructive storms, that threaten to uproot the civilization, the very basis of nationhood. Jihadism and Maoism are the two main destructive storms. Fueling these storms are India’s enemies as well as the forces of proselytization. They have to be crushed both at ideological and physical levels. We have been squeamish in dealing with the problems because of the misplaced notion that all ideologies are basically benign and beneficial, they are not. These forces have to be vanquished to secure the internal or the third front.
This book ‘Know the Anti-Nationals’ exposes these enemies within. The book “The Jihadis Plus - Know the Anti-Nationals” is a sequel to the book ‘Know the Anti-Nationals’ published in 2021, both in English and Hindi. What is germane to the internal security challenges to Bharat Nation and the Indian State, are ideologies and isms. The dynamics of internal conflicts and shades of anti-national characters and allied forces keep changing, but the ideological moorings and motivations of the anti-nationals remain unchanged. If they were to change, they would whither. Since anti-nationals keep mutating in updated versions, correspondingly this book became an imperative. Sanatan is not expansionist, because it is eternal. Nevertheless it certainly prescribes offensive-defence. Without offensive defence Bharatiya nationhood cannot be preserved and nurtured. This is a set of both books "Know the Nationals Anti-Nationals" and "The Jihadis Plus".
