Khaki shorts, a trademark of RSS

The Rashtriya Swam Sevak Sangh( RSS ) A right-wing Hindu organisation of India is palling to expand its base in the Northeast and Kashmir by 2025 according to a report

The organisation currently has little to no presence in the Northeast and Kashmir. 

A plan to expand the organisation's presence in the Northeast and Kashmir was discussed during the organisation's three-day long national executive meeting. This was informed by RSS general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale. 

The RSS often stereotyped as a far-right Hindu nationalist organisation hasn't been able to make its presence felt in the Northeastern part of the region and Kashmir. 

Considering that Kashmir is a Muslim majority area, this is quite unsurprising, as the group has been known to make controversial remarks towards the Muslims. 

The Northeast, however, is a Hindu majority region with a large Christian and Muslim minority presence.  

The group presents itself as a philanthropic voluntary organisation taking part in several relief operations across the country. 

The organisation would have to compete with other large philanthropic and ethnic organisations like the YMA and various student organisations of the Northeast, who have been performing social mobilisation programmes and other activities just as effective and long as the RSS have. 

The presence of large social organisations and a sense of community in the Northeast may have been what has prevented the RSS from expanding in the Northeast. 

It is important to note that the RSS would be celebrating their 100 year anniversary in 2025.
