Case lodged against Congress’ Digvijay Singh for his ‘ISI sponsoring BJP’ and ‘Non-Muslims spying for ISI’ remarks

Congress' Digvijay Singh came up with a bizarre statement on Sunday claiming that the Bajrang Dal and BJP are funded by Pakistan’s ISI.

Congress veteran Digvijay Singh had again stoked controversy recently with his comments against BJP and Bajrang Dal.

A case has been lodged against the loud-mouthed Congress leader in Muzaffarpur at the court of CJM Surya Kant Tripathi. The case has been lodged under IPC Sections 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class), 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).

The court will hear the case on September 13.

Another case was lodged on the basis of an FIR registered against him by BJP leader in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal on Monday. BJP’s city unit general secretary Satish Arora had registered a criminal case at the Chandausi Kotwali police station, against senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh over his allegation that the Bharatiya Janata Party and its affiliated organisations were accepting money from Pakistan’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

Congress’ Digvijay Singh, whose statements have been used by Pakistan on multiple occasions to further its narrative against India, came up with a bizarre statement on Sunday claiming that in India Bajrang Dal and BJP are funded by Pakistan’s ISI. His bizarre statement was, however, not limited to this. Going even further and equating Hindus with Pakistani spies, Singh added that non-Muslims are spying for ISI more than Muslims.

A day later, however, he claimed that some channels were telecasting “totally wrong” news about his statements.

This is not the first time Digvijay Singh has toed Pakistan’s lines. Much like his other party colleagues, Digvijay Singh has also been known for his often controversial rants. It is notable here that Singh was one of the leaders of Congress who had called the 26/11 Mumbai attacks as a conspiracy of Hindu organisations. He was one of the main proponents of the ‘Hindu Terror’ bogey propagated by the then UPA government.

Echoing Pakistan’s rants after India stripped Article 370, Digvijay had also stated that if the Indian government is not careful, they will ‘lose Kashmir’. He had also called for a protest march from Lal Chowk to Lal Qila against the Indian government’s decision to strip Article 370.

It is notable here that Pakistan has been using the statements of Congress leaders to further its narrative against India. Recently, the Pakistani government had quoted Rahul Gandhi in their letter to the UN.

Digvijay’s remarks against the government of India have been used by Pakistan after the Balakot airstrikes too.
