Abstract

This paper sets out to examine the emergence and significance of the word Hindu (and associated terminology) in discourse about India, in order to determine the light it sheds on what is currently happening in India. It concludes that the word, and its derivatives, contain a series of semantic bivalences characterised by unresolved tensions, and further that these tensions help account for the complexities generated by the induction of the word Hindu (and associated terminology) in modern Indian political discourse.
