Digvijay Singh, gets trapped by making a statement on Saraswati Shishu Mandir

Madhya Pradesh: Congress leader Digvijay Singh is known for controversial comments against the people living in India and its institution is in soup once again.  The Congress leader targeted the  Saraswati Shishu Mandir schools in India.  He has accused these schools of sowing the seeds of hatred against other religions in the minds of children since childhood.

Congress leader Digvijay Singh while addressing a protest on Saturday said that RSS-run schools at Saraswati Shishu Mandir are sowing seeds of hatred towards other religions in the minds of children. He further said that for this reason incidents like religious frenzy and riots take place in the country. Here, reacting sharply to Digvijay Singh's statement, BJP has said that Singh should talk about madrasas, which promote terrorism and spread enmity.

Addressing a protest in Bhopal on Saturday, Singh said, Saraswati Shishu Mandir sows the seeds of hatred towards other religions in the mind and hearts of children since childhood. Then it gradually increases and disturbs the communal harmony. Creates communal bitterness, spreads religious hysteria and then causes riots in the country.

A video of this statement of Congress leader Digvijay Singh has surfaced on Sunday. After this, BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya tweeted targeting Singh over this. In this, he said, Saraswati Shishu Mandir is a school of patriotism. Only a person suffering from hallucinations can point a finger at this institution.

Vijayvargiya said the country wants to know in which Congress school it is taught to address terrorist Osama bin Laden as 'G', calling terrorist Zakir Naik a peacemaker, humiliating the martyrdom of Inspector Mohan Sharma by calling the Batla House encounter fake And taught to ask for proof of surgical strike.

Another BJP leader and party MLA Rameshwar Sharma said that in Shishu Mandir there is patriotism, religion, brotherhood, affection and the ability to take everyone along. "Singh should speak about those madrassas where terrorism is encouraged, nurtured, humanity is trampled upon, the honour of daughters is looted," he said.

They should think about the education and training of madrasas where separatism and terrorism and enmity spread. When asked, a Congress spokesperson later declined to speak saying that he was not aware of the party's stand on the issue.
