Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has once again caught everyone's eyeballs on Twitter. The Gangs of Wasseypur director has on Thursday mocked the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) march which took place in Telengana.
Kashyap went on to compare RSS to German dictator Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party. Instead of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, he called RSS as Rashriya Schutzstaffel. Schutzstaffel was a major paramilitary organization under Hitler.
Kashyap said that Rashriya Schutzstaffel army is now out in the open and is marching towards the Third Reich (Hindutva Reich). "R(SS) (Rashriya Schutzstaffel) army is now out in the open .. marching towards the Third Reich (after the British and the indian realms , now the Hindutva Reich)," he wrote.

RSS was formed in 1925 and they are conducting such marches since then. They even do Shastra Pooja too.— Yosha? (@Blackdrug_) December 26, 2019
This march is not new. Many before you came and tried to ban them, jail them and even murdered some of their innocent workers but they are still marching. https://t.co/GNqa4VBq0T
