Digivijay Singh attacked Madarsas and Saraswati Shishu Mandirs, guess who filed an FIR against him

Digvijay Singh has always had a habit of courting controversies with his statements. Be it the time where he equated Kejriwal with Rakhi Sawant by stating that they both try and expose with no substance or the time where he called Congress leader Meenakshi Natrajan a ‘tunch maal’. He has also waged a long war against the RSS via his elaborate conspiracy theories like claiming RSS  was involved in making Bomb factories or appearing at a launch of a book which claimed that 26/11 was a RSS conspiracy. More recently, Digvijay was caught spreading untruths on social media.

His penchant for letting his tongue run loose though seems to have come back to haunt him as he appears to have finally pissed off the wrong people. On 22nd February he tweeted that both the Madarsas and RSS run Saraswati Shishu Mandir schools spread hatred:

It did ruffle certain feathers as some were angry over Digvijay Singh comparing Shishu Mandirs with Madarsas and stating that they (SSMS) spew hatred. Others were angry over the fact that he compared Madarsas with Shishu Mandirs and that they (Madarsas) spread hatred. Eventually, one group decided to take him to task:

The case was registered under section 298 A of the IPC which covers deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs and was filed by Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) leader Amjed Ullah Khan.

This tweet of Digvijay was unique for the fact that rarely had Digvijay ever spoken critically about the institutions associated with the minority community and had even praised controversial Islamic preacher Zakir naik in a 2012 video.

One does wonder if this case against Digvijay too falls under the ambit of ‘Growing intolerance in India’ and if it too would merit debates and armchair discussions about the changing times. It also remains to be seen whether the folks at Saraswati Shishu Mandir too would try match the intolerance and also file a case against Digvijay Singh as such a thing seems to be in fashion now a days.

When the RSS had sued Rahul Gandhi over his ‘RSS killed Gandhi’ remark, Digvijay Singh had bravely stood up and  reiterated RaGa’s charges. Will he show the gumption of repeating his charge against the madarsas now?
