This is a book that dives deep into the disturbing case that shook India in 2018. Kishwar presents a compelling argument that challenges the mainstream narrative surrounding the incident, claiming that there was an underlying evil misinformation campaign and a sinister jihadi plot to persecute Hindus and alter the religious demographics of Jammu.
From the outset, Kishwar meticulously investigates the case, starting from April 2018, when she came across what she describes as a "bizarre" and "absurd" charge sheet filled with inconsistencies. The author's extensive research and laborious efforts, spanning over five years, are evident throughout the book, exposing what she believes to be glaring flaws, callousness, and even collusion among those in power. She sheds light on the role of Mehbooba Mufti, the former Chief Minister, whom she accuses of aligning with the narrative propagated by ISI and demonizing Hindus and India.
One of the crucial takeaways from "The Girl from Kathua" is the sense of a looming civilizational crisis faced by Hindus. Kishwar argues that this particular incident is representative of a broader pattern, where hundreds of Hindu girls are routinely raped and murdered by Muslims across the country, with little attention from the media. The author criticizes the lack of commitment among Hindus in defending their own interests, contrasting it with the strong sense of commitment displayed by the Muslim community. Kishwar suggests that Hindus should learn from this and be more proactive in shaping their own narrative, rather than constantly reacting to the narratives set by others.
The book also delves into the changing demography of Jammu and highlights the perceived threat of Ghazwa-e-Hind, a concept that refers to the Islamic conquest of India. Kishwar asserts that after forcing Hindus out of the Kashmir Valley, the next target is the Hindu population in Jammu, followed by Ladakh and other regions. She suggests that the influx of illegal immigrants, such as Rohingyas and Bangladeshis, is part of a larger plan supported by organizations like ISI and the George Soros cabal, all working towards implementing Ghazwa-e-Hind. This portrayal raises concerns about the potential impact on the cultural fabric and identity of these regions.
Kishwar also emphasizes the information war, highlighting the perceived disadvantage faced by Hindus in this arena. Despite Hindus holding prominent positions in top companies and playing a significant role in social media development, the author argues that they have failed to grasp the basics of this new-age warfare. She asserts that Hindus need to take the initiative in setting the narrative to counter what she sees as a biased portrayal of Islamophobia. Kishwar points out the importance of being proactive rather than reactive, citing examples where proactive narratives have yielded positive results.
Another intriguing aspect of the book is the examination of Hindu characteristics and the perceived disadvantages they face. Kishwar suggests that Hindus excel in conflict avoidance, which has inadvertently made them vulnerable and led to the derisive labeling of being a "lazy and effeminate race." She posits that Hindus, despite being the majority, find themselves at the mercy of the minority, a phenomenon rarely seen elsewhere in the world. This introspection prompts questions about the community's self-perception and the need for collective empowerment.
In addition, "The Girl from Kathua" shines a critical light on the perceived biases and corruption within the Indian judiciary. The author argues that the judiciary, driven by a sense of shame toward their own culture and the desire for praise from foreign countries, often appears
