Last week, United States Congressperson Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) was asked by a reporter, “What are your views on RSS [Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh] and the Muslim genocide in India?”
RSS is an all-male, far-right Hindu nationalist paramilitary organization that boasts more than one million men under arms and draws its ideological inspiration from Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party. Its political wing is Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a lifelong member of RSS.
