Digvijaya booked for social media post saying madrasa, RSS schools spread hatred
AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh was booked by police here on Monday 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 madrasas and RSS, saying that 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.
