Establishment of Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh 1925

In 1923, there was a Kumbh Mela in Haridwar and here the Hindu Mahasabha was revived by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya. Now the slogan of Hindu Mahasabha became the protection and promotion of the Hindu Civilization.

In 1925, Keshav Bahram Hedgewar founded the Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh in Nagpur. Dr. Hedgewar , who had got his education in the Calcutta Medical College had been a part of the Anushilan Samiti and Yugantar and was a nationalist by heart. He became a member of Indian National Congress initially but left it soon and established RSS. The idea was to train the Hindu youths so that they united the Hindu Community and make India an Independent undivided country. He was much influenced by V D Savarkar and adopted his ideals.
