    • RSS ideologue M S Golwalkar spent nearly six months in Madhya Pradesh’s Seoni Jail after the organisation was banned following the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. An official publication of the state government now says he was jailed for being a freedom fighter.


      An article in the latest issue of Madhya Pradesh Sandesh has listed Golwalkar as one of the 41 freedom fighters who were imprisoned in Seoni Jail, built in 1925-26 in the then Central Provinces and Berar, by the British. The RSS ideologue is third on the list, behind Subhash Chandra Bose and Acharya Vinoba Bhave.
