Savarkar was a freedom fighter, politician, lawyer, and writer and was popularly known for coining the term ‘Hindutva’.

Savarkar was also a leading figure in the ‘Hindu Mahasabha.’ Savarkar started participating in the freedom movement while still a high school student and continued doing so while attending Fergusson College in Pune.

He got active with groups like India House and the Free India Society while studying law in the United Kingdom. He also published books that promoted revolutionary methods for achieving total Indian independence.

The British colonial authorities outlawed one of his works, ‘The Indian War of Independence’, which was about the 1857 ‘Sepoy Mutiny’ or the First War of Independence. (ANI)
