The author said that this pogrom was against Hindu refugees from Bangladesh and 40,000 were massacred in cold blood.
In a chapter Recovering Bengal, Nandakumar continues to claim that to secularize the language, the Mamata government has removed all the words from school textbooks that have a Hindu connection.
Pointing to an example of Muslim appeasement, he states that the West Bengal higher education council has replaced the Bengali word for rainbows, Ramdhenu (Ram's Bow) with rongdhenu (colorful bow).
The RSS leader also said that 90 RSS-BJP workers have been killed in the state and four have been killed for singing Jai Shree Ram.
The writer also accused Banerjee of Islamization of Bengal.
The state has a Muslim population of 30 percent and many say it is heading for a demographic catastrophe 'thanks to unbridled illegal infiltration and lack of family planning among Muslims, the leader wrote.
In presenting an indirect case for NRC in Bengal, Nandkumar said that more than five million illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh have made India their home.
Through the proposed Great Islamic Bangladesh, the jihadists plan to restore the former Nawab princely state of Bengal Siraj-ud-Daulah (1733-1757), which encompasses Bangladesh, Bengal, Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya and parts of Bihar, and Odisha. Author stated in the book.
The author also spoke about Kaliachak's communal riots against Hindus and blamed the state government to remain in denial mode.
The only remedy for ongoing anarchy and the deterioration of law and order in Bengal is to restore democracy and the supremacy of the constitution, Nandakumar wrote in the book.

A government with a nationalist perspective, which seeks to replace violence policies with development policies, can only restore peace and harmony in Bengal, he said.
In another chapter called Decolonizing the minds of Bharatiya, Nandakumar has argued that Indian nationalism has come to stay.
The rise of nationalist organizations, both sociocultural and political, across the country also means that we are on the right track, he said, calling for a review of the education system and the elimination of distorted forms of Indian history.
The progeny of colonization and the prisoners of colonial mentality are still on a war footing against the decolonization efforts of various nationalist movements. But a young enlightened India with devastating zeal to break the shackles of centuries-old slavery is leading the cause and fighting for the cause, she wrote.
The author stated that the unusual impulse of Indian minds to connect with our cultural roots is a really welcome signal that, I am sure, would deliver a true swaraj even after seven decades of political independence.
In making his point, the RSS leader said that (BMS) has become the largest union in the country.
Unlike other labor movements rooted in the Western thought system, BMS defends the Indian thought system and believes that the labor camp is a family unlike the communists who treat it as a battlefield, the author said.
