Police in Hyderabad on Monday filed an FIR against AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh over his alleged post about the madrassas (seminaries) and the RSS-run Saraswati Sishu Mandirs.
Police registered the case under section 295 A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of IPC against the Congress leader.
In his post on a social networking site on February 22, Singh allegedly equated the schools run by the madrssas and RSS, saying that both spread “hatred”.
He had said, “Is there a difference between Madarsas and Saraswati Shishu Mandir Schools run by RSS ? I don’t think so. Both spread Hatred.”
