Vinayak Damodar Savarkar (28 May 1883 – 26 February 1966), commonly known as ‘Swatantryaveer Savarkar’ in Marathi language,was an Indian independence activist and politician who formulated the Hindu nationalist philosophy of Hindutva. He was a leading figure in the Hindu Mahasabha.

As a response to the Muslim League, Savarkar joined the Hindu Mahasabha and popularized the term Hindutva (Hinduness), previously coined by Chandranath Basu,to create a collective “Hindu” identity as an essence of Bharat (India). Savarkar was an atheist and also a pragmatic practitioner of Hindu philosophy.

Savarkar began his political activities as a high school student and continued to do so at Fergusson College in Pune.He and his brother founded a secret society called Abhinav Bharat Society. When he went to the United Kingdom for his law studies, he involved himself with organizations such as India House and the Free India Society. He also published books advocating complete Indian independence by revolutionary means.

One of the books he published called The Indian War of Independence about the Indian rebellion of 1857 was banned by the British authorities. In 1910, Savarkar was arrested and ordered to be extradited to India for his connections with the revolutionary group India House.

In 1926, two years after the release of Savarkar from the prison, a biography titled “Life of Barrister Savarkar” and authored by a certain “Chitragupta” was published. A revised version was published in 1939 with additions by Indra Prakash of the Hindu Mahasabha. A second edition of the book was published in 1987 by Veer Savarkar Prakashan, the official publisher of writings by Savarkar. In its preface, Ravindra Vaman Ramdas deduced that, “Chitragupta is none other than Veer Savarkar”.There exists ample debate among scholars about the authenticity of this deduction.

In January 1924 Savarkar was released from Jail and was confined to the territories of Ratnagiri District and was banned from engaging publicly or privately in any manner of political activities. The same year, A brief biography of Savarkar was Published in Marathi by Sadashiv.Rajaram. Ranade Titled स्वातंत्रवीर विनायकराव सावरकर ह्यंचे संक्षिप्त चरित्र which in english translates to A Short Biography of Swatantraveer Vinakarao Savarkar in which he was first referred to as Swatantraveer throughout the biography.

After Gandhi’s assassination, Savarkar’s home in Dadar, Bombay was stoned by angry mobs. After he was acquitted of the allegations related to Gandhi’s assassination and released from jail, Savarkar was arrested by the government for making “Hindu nationalist speeches”; he was released after agreeing to give up political activities. He continued addressing social and cultural elements of Hindutva. He resumed political activism after the ban on it was lifted; it was however limited until his death in 1966 because of ill health. His followers bestowed upon him honours and financial awards when he was alive. Two thousand RSS workers gave his funeral procession a guard of honour.
