(B) M.G. Ranade
(C) Bipin Chandra Pal
(D) Aurobindo Ghosh

Correct Answer : B.G. Tilak
Question Asked : UPPCS (Pre) 1996, 2005
Explanation : The Assertion (A) in the question is not correct because Bal Gangadhar Tilak was actually a staunch nationalist who supported for’ Swaraj’ as the birth right of every Indian and in this way he tried to make close contact with the people of India and his view was considered as pioneer of M. K. Gandhi. He protested against arenas, stick, club and Cow slaughter. He started ‘Ganapati Parva’ and ‘Shivaji Mahotsava’ in Maharashtra to enthuse Nationalist feelings among masses. On the other hand, he used the religion as a political weapon but not for communal purposes.
