He was opposed to the separatist politics of the Muslim League. After joining the Hindu Mahasabha group, he published a newspaper for it, which was in Marathi language. The name of this newspaper was ‘Agrani’, it was given the name ‘Hindu Rashtra’ after a few years. Once Gandhiji started a movement against the British government, which was a non-violent and resistance movement, Hindu Mahasabha gave its support in this movement.
