RSS has been named as complicit in multiple human rights violations in India.
“The Hindu organizations most responsible for violence against Christians are the VHP, the Bajrang Dal, and the RSS.” per the the Human Rights Watch Report.
“The CIA’s Factbook mentions RSS leaders as individuals who initiate and encourage human-rights violations.” atimes.com
“In July, even after Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally condemned such violence, an affiliate organization of the BJP, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), announced plans to recruit 5,000 “religious soldiers” to “control cow smuggling and love jihad.” So-called love jihad, according to Hindu groups, is a conspiracy among Muslim men to marry Hindu women and convert them to Islam.” Human Rights Watch.
