Addressing a camp of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Wardha (Maharashtra) in 1934, Gandhi had praised its volunteers for their discipline and attitude of service. Jawaharlal Nehru was a secularist and he considered the RSS a divisive and communal organization. Yet, he tasked its volunteers with managing the traffic in Delhi during the 1962 Indo-China war and invited them to participate in the Republic Day parade the next year. Nehru was trying to wean the RSS away from its religious fanaticism.
However, Babasaheb Ambedkar never visited any RSS camp. He never trusted the organization. He was well aware of the character of the Marathi Peshwa Brahmins. How could he have forgotten the atrocities committed on his ancestors by the Peshwa Brahmins?
