Harijan Sevak Sangh celebrates its foundation day

 

  • On this day in 1932, Harijan Sevak Sangh was founded, when Gandhi Ji was in Yervada Jail, Pune and on fast.
  • The immediate historical background dates back to the Second Round Table Conference in London in 1931 when Gandhi ji opposed the segregation of the depressed classes of the Hindu community into a separate electoral group.
  • Gandhi Ji saw in it a sinister device of the British govt to create a split in the Hindu community in furtherance of its policy of divide and rule.
