Sangh Parivar

The Sangh Parivar is a loose "family" of organisations, including political parties, which promote the ideology of Hindutva, a nationalist movement based around the Hindu religion, which had its origins in the late nineteenth century independence struggles against the British Empire.

Sangh organisations are considered to be on the political "right" wing. They are frequently accused by their opponents of being fascist groups, and have at times had direct contact with and occasionally expressed admiration for other fascist movements (e.g. Nazi Germany, or Benito Mussolini's Italy).
