RSS on Tilak?

Just thought of this after a friend mentioned Lokmanya Tilak's book "The Orion". In that book, Tilak used astronomic observations to prove that the Aryans did indeed come from outside India. Now this would run contrary to RSS's Saraswati Civilization theory. I have personally heard Sangh leaders spew venom at Max Mueller for coming up with the Aryan Invasion Theory.

Wonder what their views on Tilak are? Would an organisation started mainly by Marathi brahmins and still enjoying considerable support amongst Marathi brahmins actually have the gall to rubbish the most respected Marathi brahmin of them all?
