"In the post 9-11 world, the politics of intolerance is finding acceptance within the mainstream, 'nationalism' is on the rise and the right-wing seems to be tightening its stranglehold across USA and Europe mainly on the anti-immigrant/anti-Moslem issue. The Indian right-wing is legitimizing its own agenda of the politics of hate by supporting the global War On Terror. I find shocking parallels between India 2002-2004 and Germany of the 1930s - The state-supported genocidal violence against Moslems in Gujarat, its continuing impact - ghettoization in cities and villages, formal calls for economic boycott of Moslems and attacks on intelligentsia by right-wing Hindutva cadres. We have earlier lived through many dark periods in history, often justifying our barbarism by using similar phrases. I hope this film forces people to react and think, challenge popular opinions (being handed down in easy-to-digest form across media) so we build a world which has for its foundation peace, love and welfare/well-being of people rather than hate, despair, destruction and tragedy." - Rakesh Sharma
