New Delhi: The Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is spreading its even in Middle East by estabhishing its overseas unit Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS).

According to a report in TOI, HSS, the overseas wing of RSS, is now in 39 countries. Of these, five countries are in the Middle East region where outdoor shakhas are not permitted.

As the outdoor shakhas are banned, hence in these five Middle East countries shakhas are replaced by gatherings at people's homes, the report adds.

Nepal has the largest number of shakhas outside India, US comes second with 146. By and large, most overseas shakhas are held once a week. While, in London, HSS hold shakhas twice a week.
