The Madras High court on Monday allowed RSS to carry out marches at 14 places in Tamil Nadu in November, but under several conditions which include wearing full pants instead of shorts and not raising slogans, according to The Times of India.
The Tamil Nadu government had objected to RSS carrying out rallies stating the civic elections in October-end and the recent tension in Coimbatore over the death of the spokesperson of Hindu Munnani leader. However, the court allowed RSS to conduct the rallies either onNovember 6 or 13.

It has asked the cadres to wear proper attire, especially full pants during the rally. The judge also stated that they should not get involved in any unlawful activities and not raise slogans. The court also allowed the police to impose other rules as per law.
