The RSS held marches in Tamil Nadu's Kallakurichi, Cuddalore and Perambalur districts on Monday, a day after it announced the cancellation of the event, following a hearing in the Madras High Court. The marches and a public meeting commemorating India's 75 years of independence and the 125th birth anniversary of BR Ambedkar concluded peacefully amid tight security. These are the three places where the Tamil Nadu Police had allowed the marches. On Friday, the Madras High Court allowed the RSS to hold marches at 44 places, but only at closed places like stadiums. The RSS, calling the order "unacceptable", had said it would file an appeal. "Route marches happen in the open in Kashmir, West Bengal, Kerala and other states..." the RSS had said.
