Advani is remembered for playing a prominent part in the heroic struggle against Emergency. Even though jailed at Bangalore and Rohtak for the full month term, he fought a brave legal battle along with fellow prisoners.

Probably because of this, the book displays an aversion bordering on contempt to Indira Gandhi. Not only is she flayed for the excesses during the Emergency and her propensity for dynastic succession, the honour rightfully due to her on account of the historic victory in the war with Pakistan is withheld.

Advani buttresses the Hindu claim with the argument that the mosque was just an ordinary one like any other for the Muslims, but one of the holiest places for believing Hindus. He never regrets his role in the movement, but claims to be proud of being associated with it. He was an eye witness at Ayodhya on that fateful day when the structure was forcibly pulled down by irate karsevaks volunteers for a religious purpose who were tired of frequent agitations not yielding any concrete results.
