RSS now thinking to end concept of minorities in India: Punjab Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee

Farmers' protests on Delhi-Haryana border.

New Delhi: Sarwan Singh Pandher, the head of the Punjab Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, has strongly criticized the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for considering the elimination of the minority concept, arguing that it could exacerbate divisions within the nation.

Pandher’s remarks come in the wake of recent statements by the RSS branding protesting farmers as ‘disruptive forces,’ adding fuel to the ongoing protests by farmers against government of India.

The RSS, a right-wing Hindu outfit, has faced backlash from various quarters for its stance on the minority concept. Pandher’s condemnation reflects the broader discontent among agricultural unions towards the RSS and its affiliated groups.

The controversy surrounding the RSS’s remarks coincides with the persistent farmer protests that have gripped India for months.

The protests initially erupted in response to contentious agricultural reforms passed by the Indian government, which farmers argue would undermine their livelihoods and leave them vulnerable to exploitation by corporations.
