Some Historical Facts:
Savarkar was lodged in the Cellular Jail on July 4, 1911. Within six months, he submitted a petition for mercy.
His second mercy petition was submitted on November 14, 1913.
Gandhi Ji returned to India from South Africa only on January 9, 1915.
Before Gandhi's return to India in 1915, Savarkar had only one interaction with him. In 1909, when Gandhi was invited by the Indian diaspora in the UK to attend a Dussehra event, Savarkar was present there.
Savarkar was arrested and extradited to India in 1910.
There was absolutely no interaction between Gandhi and Savarkar in this period.
Can Shri @rajnathsingh pls explain when did Gandhi Ji ask V D Savarkar to write mercy petitions to the British?
Or did Gandhi Ji sent a WhatsApp message to Savarkar, asking him to apologise?

Do you know a total of 14 FIRs were registered against 49 BJP-RSS leaders for their role in the anti-Sikh riots of 1984?
The RSS and the BJP were first in line with those who pressured the Indira Gandhi-led Congress government at the centre to take military action in the Golden Temple. BJP under Vajpayee and Advani sat on a dharna demanding the armed forces be sent into the Golden Temple.
RSS leader Nanaji Deshmukh justified the anti-Sikh riots. According to him, "The massacre of Sikhs was not the handiwork of any group or anti-social elements but the result of a genuine feeling of anger among Hindus of India."

66% of the surveyed Hindus believe it is very important to stop inter-religious marriages of Hindu women and men. 78% of the surveyed Muslims have the same opinion.

Religious leaders must be enjoying looking at the prospects of their business growth :)

“World-famous” where? At the UN? In the US? India? At least, Bharat? No mate, you were just world-famous in your own head, that is all.
Lose that melancholic Bahadur Shah Zafar long white beard and whatever illusions you may have had about how you are being seen around the world
Only he who lived by the camera now seems to stand exposed, to be judged by it. No one needs to say the obvious anymore.
He who lived by the camera is now upstaged by the camera.
Before the cameras, there is now only fire, cremation ground fire.
He grasps for his handy tools perhaps. The apparatus of State broadcasting and digital management services. The Twitter followers. The sheer numbers.
The illusion of the social. The narcotic of narcissism. The myth of the messiah.
