Who killed Mrs Gandhi? We know the name off the assassins, but did they act alone? In this fictional filmscript, Tariq Ali suggest that larger forces were at work, exploiting genuine Sikh grievances to settle their own sore with a Prime Minister who, whatever her faults, was fiercely independent of Washington and safeguarded Indian sovereignty with a zeal inherited from her father. Provocative and suggestive, this script planned as the second of a series, was never completed. The Assassination is published here for the first time and completes Ali’s trilogy, with The Leopard and The Fox and A Banker for All Seasons. Tariq Ali is a writer, and filmmaker, long- time political activist and campaigner. He has written over a dozen books on world history and politics including The Clash of Fundamentalisms and Bush in Babylon, Rough Music: Blair, Bombs, Baghdad, London, Terror, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Axis of Hope, five novels, and scripts for both stage and screen. The first novel of his Islam Quintet, Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree, was awarded the Archbishop San Clemente del Instituto Rosalia de Castro Prize for Best Foreign Language Fiction published in Spain in 1994 and, like the Book of Saladin, has been translated into several languages.
