Rashtriya Sikh Sangat
The Rashtriya Sikh Sangat ("National Sikh Association") is an India-based Sikh organization with about 450 units predominantly in the states of Rajasthan, Punjab, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Rashtriya Sikh Sangat was inspired (started) by the Hindu nationalist organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and has aimed to unite Hindus and Sikhs.
The organization has also pressed for Sikh rights in many states in India, including Jammu & Kashmir where it demanded that the state should recognize National Commission of Minorities jurisdiction and protect Sikhs as minorities in the state.
In 2014, the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat elected Gurcharan Singh Gill as its president.
