Digvijaya Singh’s rants against Sadhavi Pragya reveals Congress’ misogyny and anti-Hindu proclivities

Such comments reveal the latent misogynistic mindset of Congress leaders who cannot put up with nonconformist women who don’t flinch from speaking their minds out and who do not seek validation from men before expressing themselves freely.

Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh in a public meeting yesterday had made an inherently misogynistic remark about Sadhavi Pragya who is going to contest against him from the Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency. Digvijaya claimed that Sadhavi Pragya is a ‘mute doll’ for the RSS.

Speaking on the ban imposed by the Election Commission on Sadhavi Pragya, Digvijaya Singh insinuated that the EC’s ban on Pragya was in conformity with the RSS demand which wanted to keep Sadhavi Pragya silent. Attributing his views to RSS, Singh added that the Sangh wants a ‘mute doll’ whose movements can be regulated by their masters.

Such comments reveal the latent misogynistic mindset of Congress leaders who cannot put up with nonconformist women who don’t flinch from speaking their minds out and who do not seek validation from men before expressing themselves freely. Though the comments were deceptively ascribed to the RSS, it, in fact, exposes Congress mentality and their dim view of the growing role of women like Sadhavi Pragya, who refuse to be subservient to the male wisdom of their counterparts and are willing to take the risk of charting a new territory in the Indian political arena.

Sadhavi Pragya was hailed by many as a crusader of Hindu revivalism. Many were inspired by her conduct and her commitment to the cause of Hinduism. This didn’t sit well with the Congress party. So Congress concocted ‘Hindu Terror’ and made Sadhavi Pragya its face by nationally vilifying her for her supposed role in Samjhauta Blasts which is yet to be proved in the court of law and in fact, the NIA gave Sadhvi a clean chit in the case too.

If that was not enough, Congress leaders like Digvijaya Singh, who is known for his brazen anti-Hindu remarks and despicable comments objectifying women, seeks to continue to belittle her with his blatantly misogynistic remarks. Congress leaders can’t abide by the site of a woman with strong Hindu credentials giving them a tough fight in the Lok Sabha elections.

Even though Congress had raised hollow slogans of ‘woman empowerment’, they have merely been lip service done to distract the media’s attention from the other embarrassments faced by the party. In his attempt to attack PM Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had made a misogynistic remark against Defence Minister N Sitharaman saying that the PM is hiding behind a woman minister.

When a party’s president himself indulges in misogynistic conduct, other senior leaders are only encouraged to exhibit such behaviour. Union Minister Smriti Irani, who is competing for Amethi seat against the Congress president Rahul Gandhi, also has had to bear the sexist and vulgar obscenities hurled at her by the Congress leaders and supporters. No action was taken against the culprits while the matter was swept under the rugs by the Congress party.

Recently, former Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi left Congress and joined Shiv Sena because the Congress goons who misbehaved with her were let off the hook and reinstated by the party.

Digvijaya Singh is an epitome of an archetypal Congressi who cannot see a woman, let alone one with strong Hindu roots assert herself in the field of politics, which is generally dominated by men. After bearing indescribable torture allegedly on the directions of Congress leaders, Sadhavi is squaring up against the Congress tyranny. If Digvijay Singh’s recent utterances are anything to go by, Sadhavi is winning Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency hands down.
