New Delhi: Union Minister Prakash Javadekar took a jibe at former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh over his ‘saffron-clad rapist’ remark.
Javadekar said,” Even Congress does not give importance to him whatever he says. Why should we react? We have seen his mentality after the Mumbai attacks. Since then, he has been making such comments.”
On Tuesday, the Congress leader generated controversial statement when he said that people donning saffron clothes are committing rapes.
“Today, people are wearing saffron clothes and raping, rapes are happening inside temples. Is this our religion? Those who have defamed our ‘Sanatan Dharma’, not even God will forgive them, Singh said.
He gave this rapist remark after a law student in Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur levelled allegations of sexual harassment against former union minister and BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand.
