Demographic Mass

“In the Indian context, caste-ist and religion-based cultural minoritization is not only pervasive, but also is a site of discursive disenfrachisement and material violence. As Partha Chatterjee has argued in his indictment of contemporary India, ”[t]he continuance of a distinct cultural ‘problem’ of the minorities is an index of the failure of the Indian nation to effectively include within its body the whole of the demographic mass that it claims to represent.“
