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 day of Guru Nanak Gurpurab, the birth of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak. 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". [1]

Shamsher Singh of Lucknow was the first national and international Coordinator and convener of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat. The next President was S. Chiranjiv Singh of Patiala, a dedicated social worker.

S. Rulda Singh, the president in 2009 was assassinated by Khalistani militants belonging to Babbar Khalsa International.[2][3]

Gurcharan Singh Gill of Bharatpur (Rajasthan) is the Current President of the organisation. He started his career as a labour leader and later become State President of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh. Presently, being a prominent lawyer, he also occupied the post of Additional Advocate General of Rajasthan. He is reported to fought for the cause of Sikhs and also provided legal aid to Sikhs.[4] The Shiromani Akali Dal assigned him as convener of Operation Blue Star legal aid committee for Rajasthan.

2004 Sandesh of Akal Takhat[edit]

A sandesh (official message) signed by five Sikh Jathedars, issued from Sri Akal Takhat Sahib on 23 July, 2004 declared the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat as anti-Sikh outfit. The Akal Takhat Sahib, supreme Sikh body, cautioned the Sikh panth against activities of Rashiyra Sikh Sangat and directed the Sikhs not to participate or cooperate in any activities of the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat.[5]
