For decades, Veer Savarkar was persona non grata for those who framed the post-independence “idea of India”. With a growing majoritarian groundswell from a new generation of politicians and voters, he now seems to be heading for a Bharat Ratna. Does this flip mean that the earlier pluralistic mindset was imposed on the reluctant many by the powerful few? Is the Hindu majority not as inclusive as habitually portrayed? And if so, should India accept this fundamental bias or try to rise above it? What is the correct answer for the nation at this critical crossroads in time?
