Nagpur July 17: German Ambassador to India, Walter J. Lindner, called on RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat and toured the organisation’s headquarters here on Wednesday.

Lindner also described the RSS, founded in 1925, as “the world’s largest voluntary organization though not uncontroversially perceived throughout its history”.
