Our Hindu Rashtra (transl. "Our Hindu Nation") is a book about Hindu majoritarianism in India by journalist Aakar Patel, published by Westland Books in 2020. It surveys historical documents, government committee reports, court judgments, media archives, and records personal anecdotes on a range of issues. It argues that India is today a Hindu state in practice, and that the erosion of secularism in India began soon after India became independent, although the process accelerated after the election of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister in 2014.
