Bhopal: Se­nior Congress leader Digvi­jaya Singh trig­gered fresh con­tro­versy on Tues­day by al­leg­ing at a con­ven­tion of sad­hus that “some peo­ple wear­ing saf­fron robes are in­volved in rape”.

The ‘Sant Sa­m­agam’ was or­gan­ised by MP spir­i­tual depart­ment and CM Ka­mal Nath was on dais when Digvi­jaya gave this state­ment. The Sa­m­agam was headed by Com­puter Baba who is per­ceived close to Digvi­jaya. “To­day, wear­ing saf­fron at­tire, peo­ple are sell­ing chu­ran. Wear­ing saf­fron, there is rape be­ing com­mit­ted. Rape is tak­ing place in tem­ples. Is this our Sanatan Dharm? Even God will not for­give those who have tainted Sanatan Dharm,” he said.

Com­puter Baba de­fended Digvi­jaya’s state­ment. “Any­one who wears saf­fron and is in­volved in mis­deeds is giv­ing Sanatan Dharm a bad name,” he told TOI.
