Summary, in English

The Nehruvian policies propagated upon India’s independence envisaged no place for religion in political mobilization. Still, religion has continued to affect and influence Indian politics, even as India has become progressively affected by processes of liberalization and globalization. The particular politics of Indian secularism was based on keeping a distance from matters of faith and custom. However, in practice it has often translated into political interference in religious affairs, and vice versa. This chapter investigates some of the consequences of these strains in the secular consensus and the shrinking space for state adjustment in terms of the relationship between Hindu nationalist policies and Indian foreign policy. Outlining four narrative dimensions of this relationship, the chapter explores: 1) the relationship between policies at home and images abroad; 2) the entwinement of foreign policy and national identity; 3) the extent to which ‘Hinduness’ rather than ‘Indianness’ has acted as a guide for foreign policy; and 4) the ways in which the capitalization of unease, fear and resentment - so-called emotional governance - have impacted on the formation of foreign policy.
