On May 4, 2003 Daily Herald reported that "scholars and non-nationalist Hindus in the United States increasingly are concerned about the proliferation of RSS [Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh] branches in this country, known here as the HSS, called shakhas. In 1991, there were just three shakhas in the United States; now, there are more than 50, according to the HSS web site... Two local shakhas meet weekly in Schaumburg and Wheeling while a third Chicago-area one is being formed, organizers say."
