The Rashtriya Sikh Sangat is a cultural organization affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. It was formed on 24 November 1986 on the Prakash Purab of Guru Nanak Dev.


The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is an organization that aims "to unite and rejuvenate the Bharat nation on the sound foundation of Hindu Dharma". Its definition of "Hindus" includes anyone born and belonging to India (see Hindutva).

Rashtriya Sikh Sangat was formed on 24 November 1986, on the Guruprakash Purab of Jagatguru Nanak Sahibji Maharaj. It describes itself as an independent socio-cultural organization which aims to promote Sikh-Hindu relations. It aims to "spread the knowledge of Gurbani to not only the Sikh masses of India, but also to the rest of Indian society".

S. Shamsher Singh of Lucknow was the first national and international Coordinator and convenor of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat. The next President was S. Chiranjiv Singh of Patiala, a dedicated social worker. S. Gurcharan Singh Gill of Bharatpur (Rajasthan) was the next President of the organisation.

S. Rulda Singh, the president in 2009 was assassinated by Khalistani militants belonging to Babbar Khalsa International.[1][2]
