Rashtriya Sikh Sangat
The Rashtriya Sikh Sangat is an arm of the right-wing Hindu-nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in India. It is perceived as one among the several subsidiaries of RSS that operate in the state of Punjab to further the anti-Sikh propaganda of the RSS.
A 2002 claim by RSS that "Sikhs are Hindus" led to an outcry among Sikhs. In 2004 the leader of the Akal Takht stated that the Sangat was "Anti-Sikh", and forbade all Sikhs from having any association with it.
