The RSS and the Tricolour have had a fascinating history of resistance, rejection and acceptance. Gas pain left side It may come as a rude surprise to neo recruits like Sharma that the RSS — not the Congis+Commies+Left– did not hoist the national flag at its headquarters for 52 years.

The national flag was first hoisted at the Sangh headquarters on August 15, 1947 and then on January 26, 1950. Gaston y daniela The Tiranga was seen flying next time at the RSS premises in 2002, when it was hoisted at the HQ and Smruti Bhawan, the building that houses the memorials of its founder Hedgewar and Guru Golwalkar.

According to The Times of India, Chotu Bhaiyya Dhakras, nagar sangh chalak of Mohite Vibhagh and Shriramji Joshi of Dr Hedgewar Smarak Samiti hoisted the flags respectively at the HQ and Smruti Bhawan, according to RSS office.

So, why was the Sangh averse to hoisting the Tiranga at its headquarters and shakhas? In 2002, when the Sangh decided to hoist the national flag at its headquarters, its national executive member K Suryanarayana Rao told reporters in Bangalore the RSS did not biannually hoist the flag because till a few days ago, there were stringent rules restricting the hoisting of the flag only on government buildings.

In 1948, the RSS was banned by the government for its alleged role in the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. Bp gas prices akron ohio When its leaders approached the then home minister Sardar Patel for revoking the ban, he put forward several conditions. Austin electricity outage One of them: the RSS accept the Tricolor as the national flag.

According to this collection, Patel said at a Congress meet on 17 December, 1949, in Jaipur that any organisation seeking to supplant the National Flag by another would be sternly dealt with.

“Sardar Patel, who vehemently condemned the activities of the RSS, was loudly cheered at the conclusion of his speech,” says a newspaper report of the event, reproduced in this collection.

Home Secretary H V R Iyengar had written to Golwalkar in May 1949, stating, “An explicit acceptance of the National Flag (with the Bhagwa Dhwaj as the organisational flag of the Sangh) would be necessary for satisfying the country that there are no reservations in regard to allegiance to the State”.

The RSS has disputed this. Gaz 67 for sale It claims that there was never any conflict between the bhagwa dhwaj, which it considers the organisation’s Guru, and the tricolour. Gas delivery On August 22, 2000, when Prakash Ambedkar, grandson of BR Ambedkar, argued in Parliament that the RSS had signed an agreement with the government in 1949 for hoisting the tricolour at its headquarter, its leaders challenged the Parliamentarian to produce the agreement.

According to the Organiser (3 September, 2000), MG Vaidya, member of the national executive of the RSS, “marshalled facts to nail the canards being spread to malign the Sangh on the question of the National Flag.”

Vaidya pointed out that on August 16, 2000, Shri Prakash Ambedkar, MP, while speaking in the Lok Sabha had stated that according to the Home Ministry’s resolution dated 26 November, 1949, “There was an agreement between the RSS and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel which clearly states that RSS will hoist the national flag on 26h January 1950 at its Nagpur headquarters.”

According to historian Ramachandra Guha, during the thirties and forties, few, if any, RSS workers were seen saluting the national flag.
