|R.C. Majumdar 1888 - 1980|
DR. R.C. MAJUMDAR, doyen of Indian historians, told the winter camp of RSS in Calcutta in 1960: "All the programmes and activities of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha have been visualised with a great aim and plan by its creator. He started the work with a great view in mind, with the aim of inspiring the true spirit of nationalism, and making the nation strong and powerful. He rightly and boldly declared that Hindus are the true nationals of this great country. Many people feel ashamed to accept this fact, though they also feel that it is true. We must acknowledge boldly that it is Hindu History, Hindu Culture, Hindu Civilization that this country is proud of, when we people speak of the great past and great culture of the country. I do not know why they should feel ashamed of saying that the great past and the great culture was nothing but the Hindu past and the Hindu culture."
