“Savarkar never considered cow as ‘Maata’ & had no issues with Beef consumption”: Digvijay Singh

Digvijay Singh

Taking a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress leader Digvijay Singh said that Vinayak Damodar Savarkar never considered cow as a ‘Maata’ (Mother) and he had no issues with the consumption of Beef.

Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh, on Saturday, made a controversial statement, this time raising the sensitive issue of ‘Beef’. Singh said that Vinayak Damodar Savarkar never considered cow as a ‘Maata’ (Mother) and he had no issues with the consumption of Beef. The Congress leader, at an event in Madhya Pradesh’s capital, said, “Veer Savarkar, in his book, said that Hinduism has nothing to do with Hindutva. He never considered cow as ‘Maata’ and had no problem in consuming beef.

Speaking at Jan Jagran Abhiyan in Bhopal where several party cadres and leaders were present, Digvijay Singh said that the grand old Congress party has a fight with the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and if they are voted back to power in General Elections in 2024, the first thing that they will do is to change the Indian Constitution and following that, they will end the reservation. Singh also reiterated Rahul Gandhi’s statement that Hindutva has nothing to do with Hinduism. 

Hitting back at Digiviajy’s remark, the National General Secretary of the BJP, Kailash Vijayvargiya, on Sunday, said that Digvijay Singh should change his name to ‘Digvijay Khan’ if the leader considers eating beef an appropriate move. Vijayvargiya further added that “Digvijay Singh can say anything, he is on his political retirement. He can change his name to ‘Digvijay Khan’ if he considers beef-eating appropriate.”

Joining the chorus with Kailash Vijayvargiya was BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma who stated that Digvijay Singh is always engaged in defaming the Hindus. He said “Digvijaya Singh is that great man who keeps working hard and hard day and night to conspire against Hindus. If you had worked for the betterment of Hindus and Hindustan, then neither Jinnah would have been born in Pakistan nor terrorism would have been visible anywhere on the soil of this country… Sometimes in the name of Savarkar and sometimes in the name of other great men they make false statements.”

This is not the first time that Digvijay Singh had targeted VD Savarkar, earlier also, on a few occasions, the senior Congress leader had taken potshots against the freedom fighter.
