saffron demography
 n.— «Although we now know that there is no such thing as race, nevertheless racial purity, numbers and culture are yoked together in all fundamentalist discourses. As Patricia and Roger Jeffery have noted, what has come to be called saffron demography has come to stay, a set of pernicious myths masquerading often as common sense.» —“Saffron Demography” by Mohan Rao Times of India Apr. 19, 2006.
