Indian pro-independence activist, politician, poet, writer and playwright. He advocated dismantling the caste system in Hindu culture, and reconversion of the converted Hindus back to Hindu religion.
Savarkar created the term Hindutva, and emphasised its distinctiveness from Hinduism which he associated with social and political communalism. The stated aim of Savarkar's Hindutva was to create an divisive collective identity.
He died on 26 February 1966, aged 82, in Mumbai, India.
