Sardar Patel And Mahatma Gandhi On The RSS

"But don't forget, so had Hitler's Nazis and the fascists under Mussolini ...it (the RSS) is a communal body with a totalitarian outlook."

"Hindu Raj...that mad idea." Sardar Patel, February 1949.

 "All their (RSS) leaders' speeches were full of communal poison. As a final result of the poi-son...an atmosphere was created in which such a ghastly tragedy (Gandhi's assassination) became possible...RSS men expressed joy and distributed sweets after Gandhiji's death."Excerpts from Sardar Patel's letters to M.S. Golwalkar and S.P. Mookerjee.
