11 years of jail term for hoisting flag at RSS premises???[edit]

" In 2001 three activists of Rashtrapremi Yuwa Dal – president Baba Mendhe, and members Ramesh Kalambe and Dilip Chattani, along with others – allegedly entered the RSS headquarters in Reshimbagh, Nagpur, on 26 January, Republic Day of India, and forcibly hoisted the national flag there amid patriotic slogans. They contended that the RSS had never before or after independence, ever hoisted the tri-colour in their premises, even on Independence Day and Republic Day. Offences under the relevant section of the Bombay Police Act and the IPC were registered by the police against the trio, resulting in their being jailed. They were released after eleven years in 2013.[92][93]" This gives an impression that trio spent 11 years in jail. Is it true? the references 92, 93 didn't mention about the 11 years jail term. Please give the correct source of information — Preceding unsigned comment added by Capt Saurabh (talkcontribs) 15:34, 14 August 2017 (UTC)


@Arpith98: We don't need another Origins section, in addition to the existing sections on Founding and Motivations. Your new material needs to be worked into those sections without being overweight on any one particular point of view. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 18:26, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Gowalkar quote[edit]

@Pranav21391: you don't have to add your personal opinion about a quote and the quote when it has been already described with better sources on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh#World War II. Capitals00 (talk) 09:12, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

@Capitals00: The nature of the quote is more important and its effect given that the book was more of a textbook for the RSS till 1991 (and as some sources suggest even since). The quote itself highlights the attitude towards other minorities in India. Following Adolf Hitlers ideology or admiring him for racial purity does not clearly outline the genocidal mindset the quote portrays. You can have the quote, but the genocidal nature of that quote (as stated by countless sources I can quote) should not be supplanted. Quote from the page: M. S. Golwalkar, who became the supreme leader of the RSS after Hedgewar, took inspiration from Adolf Hitler's ideology of racial purity. - In my opinion it should be re-worded to> M. S. Golwalkar, who became the supreme leader of the RSS after Hedgewar, took inspiration from Adolf Hitler's ideology of racial purity even later on admiring Hitler's final solution. Furthermore this quote existed on this very page in 2010 and 2011. We fought edit wars on this and it was accepted. It being removed is acceptable but its direction being whitewashed is unwarranted --Pranav (talk) 10:38, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
Can somebody provide the diff for the edit being talked about? -- Kautilya3 (talk) 11:49, 7 February 2018 (UTC)


@Kautilya3: How "right-wing volunteer" is supported by any of the sources? You are only misrepresenting sources because the mentioned citation[1] includes no mention of a "right wing" or even a "volunteer" let alone mentioning the term as whole. Also there are no other sources to back up this term, where as I provided 2 reliable sources for "nationalist volunteer", see WP:OR. Raymond3023 (talk) 00:15, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

This book is not available on Google Books. You will have to find a hard copy. But there are hundreds of reliable sources using that description. So, I think you need not bother. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 00:45, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
See Volunteer. Sources call it a right-wing organisation, which is different than "right wing volunteer". Infobox should say both "Nationalist volunteer", "Right-wing organisation". Raymond3023 (talk) 02:42, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
It should have been "right-wing, volunteer". But now that I think about it, I think "volunteer" can be safely omitted. All organisations are volunteer organisations, more or less, and it is already in the name anyway. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 11:45, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
