ABSTRACT:
It is a well-known fact that the colonial state kept a close watch on social, political as well as other kinds of movements in India. As a state created and manned by foreigners in the higher echelons, it was deeply distrustful of the Indian society and sought to protect itself by a rigorous and comprehensive monitoring of all those forces which it regarded as potentially dangerous. Among the organizations watched closely by the colonial state were the RSS and the Hindu Mahasabha. During the period 1942-1944, these two organizations witnessed substantial growth in terms of the level of their activities and their reach in different parts of India. The official records have documented their activities in considerable detail and thus provide an interesting perspective on these organizations.
