Criminal defamation case filed against Congress’ Digvijay Singh for accusing Bajrang Dal and BJP of taking money from ISI

Earlier this month, the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister had equated Hindus with Pakistani spies and added that non-Muslims are spying for ISI more than Muslims. He had also said that the BJP and Bajrang Dal are funded by Pakistan's ISI.

A criminal defamation case has been filed against veteran Congress leader Digvijay Singh for accusing Bajrang Dal and the BJP of taking money from Pakistan spy agency ISI. The court will consider the matter on 9th October.

The former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister had equated Hindus with Pakistani spies and added that non-Muslims are spying for ISI more than Muslims. He had also said that the BJP and Bajrang Dal are funded by Pakistan’s ISI.

Earlier this month, another case was filed against him by BJP leader in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal for his above remarks.

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. Though Digvijay has increasingly become incoherent, especially so after losing by a huge margin to BJP’s first time MP-candidate Sadhvi Pragya, who was put in jail and tortured by UPA government under false charges of terrorism, his latest statement may have been an extension of the same ‘Hindu Terror’ hoax that Congress had run in the country for years.

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.
