In a major bid to reach out to the foreign media houses to clear any misconceptions held about Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the organisation’s chief, Mohan Bhagwat is likely to hold a briefing of members of such media houses on 24 September, reports The Hindu.

The said interaction with foreign media will be aimed at briefing them on Sangh's position and ideological stance on sundry issues. The engagement with the foreign media houses will also be aimed at briefing them about how the RSS has evolved over the course of history.

The development comes at a time when the foreign media has grown scathing in their reportage related to the RSS. Also, it should be noted that the RSS chief had also conducted a lecture series last month which was well attended by the representatives from the Indian media.

Bhagwat had in July also hosted the German Ambassador to India, Walter J Lindner at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur.
