1889 - Dr. Keshav Baliram Hedgewar - Founder RSS - Striving for Unity in Diversity of Hindus
Dr. Keshav Baliram Hegdewar strongly believed that the Hindu Society, due to its internal caste, region and language differences as well as differences in the modes of worship; suffered untold losses and has been enslaved under foreign rule for over a millennium.
