Anonymous posters seeking a ban on Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s entry into temples were put up outside various temples in Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday.
This came after Digvijay Singh, who is infamous for making controversial statements, kicked up a storm on Tuesday claiming that people wearing Saffron are committing rapes inside the temples these days.
The posters, which emerged outside various temples including the Parshuram temple in Char Imli area, carried pictures of the Congress veteran and read: “Hindu samaj ki yahi pukar, Hindu virodhi Digvijaya Singh ke liye mandiron ke darwaze band hon, band hon, by Hindu Samaj” (This is an appeal of Hindu society that doors of temples should be closed for anti-Hindu Digvijaya Singh).
These posters were, however, removed the next morning.
Congress leader Digvijay Singh, generally known for making slanderous statements against the Hindus said on Tuesday that people donning “saffron robes” are committing rapes which are taking place in “temples”, and thus defaming the Sanatan Dharma (ancient religion). He made the defamatory remark while addressing the Sant Samagam in Bhopal.
He added that it is a matter of concern that people are defaming ‘Sanatan Dharma’. Singh further added that and even god will not forgive those who are doing these things in the name of religion.
“Today, people are wearing saffron clothes and raping, rapes are happening inside temples, is this our religion? Those who have defamed our ‘Sanatan Dharma’, not even God will forgive them,” Digvijaya Singh said.
Digvijaya Singh, who is known to make illogical statements, had sparked a major row recently by claiming that BJP and the right-wing Hindu outfit Bajrang Dal are getting money from Pakistan’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The veteran Congress leader further alleged that non-Muslims were spying for ISI more than the Muslims and everyone should understand this fact.
