Muslims join RSS[edit]

Please add this info.VictoriaGraysonTalk 04:57, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Hmm. You want us to add "Mr. Haque has joined the RSS" to the article? --regentspark (comment) 12:08, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, to prove that the idea of RSS being anti-Muslim is just an academic conspiracy. I am ok to add it if I can also add that the RSS has used its Muslim members/sympathisers to terrorist bomb other Muslims.[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kautilya3 (talkcontribs)
The Muslim branch of the RSS Muslim Rashtriya Manch should be mentioned in the lead.VictoriaGraysonTalk 15:23, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Agree, Muslim Rashtriya Manch is a prominent and well defined wing of it. --AmritasyaPutraT 16:22, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
A "wing"? That is a new word! Should we also call the BJP a political "wing" of the RSS? Kautilya3 (talk) 16:47, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Sorry people. But lacking scholarly sources, none of this stuff is worthy of adding to the article. We could, if you like, add Mr. Haque's RSS membership to Mazharul Haque because it is pertinent there. --regentspark (comment) 18:49, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Forget about the article. AmritasyaPutra and I want to merely link to the Muslim Rashtriya Manch article in the lead.VictoriaGraysonTalk 00:32, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Not significant enough. I note that it is included in the affiliated organizations list and that's probably the best place for it. If, at some time, scholarly sources highlight the importance of this (or any other) affiliated organization, then I suppose we could consider adding something about it. --regentspark (comment) 01:26, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
I'd agree with RP here. We cannot mention all of the 20 odd affiliates of the RSS in the lede; and among those affiliates, the MRM certainly does not have the sort of coverage required to set it apart. It should, and is, mentioned in the "affiliated organisations" section. Though god knows those descriptions could use work. Vanamonde93 (talk) 05:40, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Calling it right wing is an unsubstantiated opinion & as such should be deleted. 118.102.174.130 (talk) 12:55, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done The right-wing label appears to be specifically sourced (see info box) and therefore is not unsubstantiated. --regentspark (comment) 18:47, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

General Secretary of RSS.[edit]

Article says

-Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh abbreviated as RSS (IPA:Rāṣṭrīya Svayansēvaka Saṅgha) (pronunciation: [rɑːʂˈʈriːj(ə) swəjəmˈseːvək ˈsəŋɡʱ], lit. "National Volunteer Organization"[11] or National Patriotic Organization[12]) is a right-wing charitable, educational, volunteer, Hindu nationalist,[5] non-governmental organization-

Right wing politics is defined by Wikipedia itself as -Right-wing politics are political positions or activities that view some forms of social stratification or social inequality as either inevitable, natural, normal, or desirable,[1][2][3] typically justifying this position on the basis of natural law or tradition-

So the term right wing is obviously not attributable to RSS because they try to eliminate inequalities in society at least in principle. So RSS is not a Right wing group. Please edit — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.197.120.174 (talk) 12:40, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
