Bhopal: On Wednesday, Congressman Digvijaya Singh criticised Hindu nationalist Veer Savarkar, claiming that he was not religious. He asserted that Hindutva had nothing to do with Hinduism when speaking at a book launch event. “Hindutva is a political movement that has nothing to do with Hinduism. Savarkar was not a religious person. He was perplexed as to why a cow is considered’maata’ and had no objection to eating beef. He coined the term “Hindutva” to establish Hindu identity, which caused people to be perplexed “.In Delhi, Digvijaya was speaking at the book launch of Congressman Salman Khurshid’s Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh’s Home Minister, Narottam Mishra, suggested that Khurshid may have written the book in order to “purposefully create a controversy.” “They believe in appeasement politics. The ‘Tukde-Tukde’ gang has the support of Congress officials and the Gandhi family. They want the country divided into castes, according to their beliefs “Mishra stated. Salman Khurshid links Hindutva to ISIS and Boko Haram in this book. He brought up the controversy surrounding the Babri Masjid and Ram Janmabhoomi. In his book, he states, “The political form of Hindutva in the present times is casting aside the ageless and ancient Hinduism of saints.”
There is a state of exchange in contemporary public life. “Those who do not know Hinduism will respond to it, and those who do know Hinduism will not respond to it,” Khurshid recently commented of the controversy. On Wednesday, a criminal complaint was filed against Salman Khurshid after a Delhi-based lawyer urged the Delhi Police Commissioner to launch a prosecution against the Congress politician for defaming Hinduism and linking it to terrorism.
