Madhya Pradesh: Why FIR was registered against Digvijaya Singh in Indore

Indore: Advocate Rajesh Joshi of Madhya Pradesh High Court has lodged a police complaint against senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh sharing a fake statement on social media about second Sarsanghchalak Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar 'Guruji' of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. 

Joshi, a resident of Sudama Nagar, Indore, lodged an FIR under sections 153A, 469, 500 and 505 of the Indian Penal Code at Tukoganj police station at around 11.30 pm on Saturday night.

Joshi has said in the police report that Singh tried to create enmity, hatred and disharmony among Dalits, OBCs, Muslims and Hindus against the world's largest selfless social service organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. The post has hurt the religious faith of people, including the RSS volunteers and the Hindu community.

On Saturday at around 4 pm, former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh shared an alleged newspaper clipping on Twitter and wrote, "What were the views of Guru Golwalkar ji for Dalits, backwards and Muslims and on rights over water, forest and land must be known." "

The purported newspaper clipping quoted Guru Golwalkar as saying - "I am ready to be a slave to the British all my life, but I do not want such freedom, which gives equal rights to Dalits, Backwards and Muslims."

Congress leaders trying to spread hatred: RSS

Expressing strong objection to this, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh said that Congress leaders are trying to spread hatred with the help of lies. Sangh's All India Publicity Head Sunil Ambekar responded to Singh's tweet and addressed him on Twitter, writing, "This tweet in the context of Golwalkar Guruji is baseless and is creating social disharmony and aims to tarnish the image of the Sangh. There is a false photo-shopped picture. Shri Guruji never said such a thing. His entire life was dedicated to ending social discrimination."

Common people also reacted strongly to this tweet of Singh and termed it as against his dignity and political status.

Indore Police Commissioner Makarand Deoskar said, "We received a complaint claiming that Singh in the post attributed some remarks to Golwalkar which the latter never made. Based on this complaint, the case has been registered against Singh. " Further steps would be taken after a probe into the charges against Digvijaya Singh, Deoskar said.
