The RSS is not just one entity but the core organization that has given birth to further umbrella groups like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). Out of the VHP emerged another militant offshoot, the Bajrang Dal.
In 2015, the former raised the bogey of “Love-Jihad” by peddling theories of Muslim men “luring” Hindu women into romantic relationships to convert them. The latter, is a mainstay during the yearly Valentine’s Day celebrations as they attack couples partaking in any sort of public display of affection to commemorate the occasion which is considered “Western Culture.”
Formed in 1980 as a mix of RSS’s erstwhile political extension, the Bharatiya Jan Sangh, and anti-Indira Gandhi contingents of the Janata Party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) faction is the political wing of the RSS.
There are many other organizations that are a part of this huge network.
