The BJP and India’s International Emergence

(p.185) Conclusions
Hindu Nationalism and the Evolution of Contemporary Indian Security

Chris Ogden

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion sums up all of these perspectives and importantly notes how the BJP-led NDA government witnessed profound changes concerning the development and evolution of India’s security practice. It finds that these changes continued to be reflected in Indian security policy after the NDA left office in 2004 and have been maintained by successive Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) governments. In addition, the Conclusion highlights the efficacy of a fuller ideational account of India’s security practice through the norm-based comparison of differing political ideologies. Such an approach further indicates how norms can often have primacy over material factors. The Conclusion then finally discusses the future trajectory of Indian security and Hindu nationalism’s potential influence upon it, especially in light of their established position as India’s leading Opposition party and the forthcoming 2014 elections.
