An excerpt from 'The Hour Before Dawn': Playing football in the time of Babri Masjid

Editors Note: Ajaz Ashrafs novel, 'The Hour Before Dawn', published by Harper Collins, narrates the thought-provoking and suspenseful story of a terminally ill mans search for the person who claims to write Indias Secret History, the pages of which appear on the walls of Delhis residential neighbourhoods, dividing its people as never before. Four weeks before the Babri Masjid is demolished, Delhi wakes up to accounts of Indias Secret History, pasted on the walls of the citys residential neighbourhoods, dividing its people as never before. That division is mirrored in a school football match which suddenly turns into a game between Muslims and Hindus. #Babri Masjid #BookExcerpt #RSS #Hindus #Muslims #Babri Demolition #Football match #Secret History
