History Shows How Patriotic the RSS Really Is

BY PAVAN KULKARNI ON 17/04/2017.Throughout India’s freedom struggle, the RSS was subservient to the British, with its leadership prohibiting participation in mass movements.The RSS is creating false binaries of national and anti-national. Whether it was the ABVP’s recent attack on Ramjas college, or the February 2016 incident in JNU, or the number of other attacks on “anti-national” artists and journalists that have taken place under the Modi-government, numerous media outlets – print and electronic – have been all too happy to cast these confrontations into the false binary of “free speech vs nationalism”.
