FIR against Digvijay Singh in Hyderabad for hurting religious feelings

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.”

A complaint in this regard was lodged by Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) leader Amjed Ullah Khan, said Dabeerpura police inspector C Venkanna Naik.

“We have registered a case under section 295 A of IPC and are investigating,” the officer told PTI.
