Do you know that nearly 3,000 RSS members eat beef and the Sangh is OK with it

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has around 3,000 members in Arunachal Pradesh, many of whom do consume beef. This fact was shared by RSS representatives during a media interaction in Arunachal Pradesh on 8 December.

The RSS is apparently making an effort to ward off the image of being against beef-eaters. Eating beef cannot come in the way of becoming a member of the RSS, its all-India prachar pramukh Manmohan Vaidya was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

Vaidya made this statement while addressing reporters during his three-day visit to Arunachal Pradesh.

"We want to make India the number one country. RSS is not a religious organisation, but a social one," he claimed.

Vaidya said that RSS has nothing to do with the beef ban and the organisation is only opposed to anti-national activities. "The RSS has nothing to do with the food habits of people," he said
