Read this article at length and in detail, and then read it again; only this time just take in the facts and timelines and not the writer’s interpretations and biases.
Then, we will talk. #Thread #RSS thewire.in/history/rss-hi…
First, I laugh at the #libtards who continue to on one hand caricature the #RSS as a club of old fat men pretending to play arms with their sticks and on the other hand they want some to fear these fat old men with sticks because they might fight them.
Why do these #Librards believe that those who are caricaturized by some with Kalashnikovs, suicide vests, knives and rampaging motor vans, have anything to fear from those that are caricaturized by some with half pants, fat bellies and bamboo sticks?

Dr Hedgewar went to prison at least twice in the course of independence process. He was with Congress, joined the Khilafat movement and I’d say he saw the potentially damaging outcomes of both these 80 years before we all could and split from them. #RSS
By the late 1930s and certainly by the early 40s, it was evident plentifully to anyone who had the vision of seeing the trees from the woods that India’s freedom from British colonization is imminent. It’s just a process of when and how, not if.
Hedgewar, Golwalkar, Savarkar etc saw the inside workings of the Congress schemes with the British.
They saw that Congress was being propped up as the vessel for power transfer by the British, and sacrificing their lives as side show was futile, wasn’t going to change outcomes.
In 1930s Congress made it illegal for any Congress members to also be a member of #RSS, Hindu Mahasabha or Muslim League, because they were sectarian groups.
Come 1947, how then was Muslim League and Jinnah allowed to be stake holders and claim Pakistan but no stakes for RSS?
The #Libtards keep insulting #RSS as having been ‘subservient’ to the British government; but how come it was Congress that was the recipient of all the power transfer benefits? Who was actually putting out for the Brits?
The #RSS tried to align with the Brits, offering them partnership in governance through the ‘home guards’ program, hoping that their willingness to govern in system would make the Brits think of making them a party in power transfer.
Alas, Nehru was literally ‘in bed’ with Brits.
If it was a woman leader from the ruled country that was sleeping with the colonizers and in turn received a transfer of powers and favors, what would people call that woman?

Why should Nehru be judged any different, just because of his gender??
Getting back to the #RSS, I see how the RSS and Hindu Mahasabha felt betrayed by the Brit-Congress nexus when they had ostentatiously disowned them and Muslim league together but when it came to transfer of power, Muslim League was given a share, not them.
Gandhi became the pivotal point that had the potential to create a true balance in the power transfer, to have the RSS and Mahasabha at the table as representatives of a major population group. Instead, Gandhi chose to be partial. He became the excuse that gave Congress validity.
