An RSS statement said that Swarup was a "moving encyclopedia" and worked closely with all the RSS chiefs from M.S. Golwalkar, also known as Guru Golwalkar, to K.C. Sudarshan.

It said that he was jailed for six months during the ban on RSS after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.

He headed the Deendayal Research Institute and was also associated with the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) as a historian. He authored books like "Integral Humanism, Politics of Conversion" and the "RSS, Politics and Media".
