Digvijaya Singh advices Imran Khan on how to win Nobel Peace Prize and Sidhu on how to stop being abused

The Congress veteran leader appeared to be in a pensive mood as the skies were just clearing up and a bright sun was shining in the national capital.

Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had a few pearls of wisdom to offer on a foggy Tuesday morning. Lashing out on Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan in wake of the Pulwama terror attack, Singh urged Khan to ‘show guts’ and hand over Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar to India. This, Singh said, would bail out Pakistan from the financial crisis and also make him the frontrunner for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Hafiz Saeed, is a Pakistani Islamist militant who was responsible for the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. Singh, However, had given a clean chit to Saeed by launching a book which accused the RSS of carrying out the terror attacks.

He then urged his colleague and other cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, who gave a clean chit to Pakistan in the Pulwama attack, to put some sense in his friend Imran Khan.

That it is because of Khan that Sidhu is being abused. Sidhu, while absolving Pakistan of the terror attack, had said, “Terrorism has no religion. Terrorism has no caste, party and terrorism has no country.”

The Congress veteran leader appeared to be in a pensive mood as the skies were just clearing up and a bright sun was shining in the national capital. Singh said we as a nation should be introspecting on what have we done wrong in Kashmir in last 71 years. He urges the politicians to sweep their political differences aside and to draw out a roadmap to bring back brotherhood between Kashmiri Muslims and Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and Kashmir.

And then, as if that was the most logical thing, Digvijaya Singh says that because Imran Khan was a great cricketer whom Singh admires, there is no way he cannot possibly tackle Muslim fundamentalists and ‘ISI sponsored terrorists groups’.

ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) is the premier intelligence agency of Pakistan.

Meanwhile, since the terror attack on 14th February, the cricketer Singh admires and who is currently the Prime Minister of our neighbouring country, has maintained radio silence and not even condemned the terror attack carried out by Pakistan-bred terrorists from Jaish-e-Mohammad.

Singh’s statement comes at a time when Congress leaders have been giving mixed reactions to the terror attack. While Congress supporting troll along with other Congress-friendly self-proclaimed intellectuals have floated a conspiracy theory that Prime Minister Modi might have orchestrated the terror attack, other Congress leaders have questioned the timing of terror attack which took place weeks before the country goes for general elections. Former Gujarat Congress President Bharat Solanki also wondered if the terror attack could be used as the plot for the new film by BJP. Another Congress leader even went to the extent of blaming the security forces for the Pulwama attack.
