HYDERABAD: A case has been registered against senior Congress leader Digivijaya Singh for his tweet comparing Muslim Madrasas with a RSS-run organisation.
The case was registered by the Dabeerpura police on Monday following a complaint by Majlis Bachao Tehreek spokesperson Amjadullah Khan.
Amjadullah Khan lodged a complaint with the police stating that Digvijaya Singh's tweet on Twitter comparing Muslim Madrasas in the country with the Saraswathi Shishu Mandir run by the Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) hurt the religious sentiments of the community.
"Digvijaya Singh's remarks have hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community as Madarsas are schools of learning of Islamic education where students are taught various aspects of Islam and modern education including the State official language like Telugu, Marathi, Odhiya and other languages,'' the MBT leader said in the complaint.
Based on complaint, police registered case under section 295 (A) (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion) of IPC against the Congress leader.
On February 22, Digvijaya Singh tweeted, "Is there a difference between Madarsas and Sarwasti Shishu Mandir Schools run by RSS? I don’t think so. Both spread hatred.”
