Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh is often at the centre of controversies due to his rhetorical statements and petty antics. This time also Digvijaya is in the headlines due to his tweet calling Muharram “auspicious”. Yesterday, on the occasion of Muharram, Digvijaya Singh tweeted, “greetings to all Muslim brothers and sisters on the auspicious occasion of Muharram”
सभी मुस्लिम भाईयों और बहनों को मुहर्रम के पावन अवसर पर हमारी सलाम।

This tweet portrays Muharram as a very positive festival, and Muslims need to be wished. We know Digvijaya Singh that you are a very strong supporter of Muslims and you are ready to even declare an entire community as a terrorist for them, but how did you make such a big mistake? Muharram is an occasion of mourning, not of happiness. Digvijaya is wrong, because on this day Prophet Muhammad’s son Hussain ibn Ali and his wife’s children were murdered, and that’s why Shia Muslims prominently mark this day as mourning.
Therefore, on this childish tweet by Digvijaya Singh, senior BJP leader and former cabinet minister Shahnawaz Hussain lashed out at him. In his tweet Shahnawaz Hussain writes, “Shree @ digvijaya_28, today is a day of sorrow. You don’t even know that Digvijay ji ”.
श्री @digvijaya_28 जी, आज दुख का दिन है।
इतना भी नहीं मालूम आपको दिग्विजय जी। https://t.co/8IeqRd1kvc

What was next, users trolled him on this tweet of Digvijaya Singh.
लेकिन उनको तो खुशी मिल रही है। शहनवाज भाई यही इनकी असलियत है, पता नहीं आम मुसलमान कब इनकी यह चाल समझेगा।
क्योंकि अगर ये मुसलमानों के सच्चे हमदर्द होते तो इनको मुस्लिम भाइयों के धार्मिक कार्यक्रमों के बारे में सही जानकारी होती।
ये झूठे हैं, इनकी भावनाएं भी झूठी हैं।

Anyone who is well acquainted with the political career of Digvijaya Singh, he will surely be shocked by reading this tweet. But given the nature of Digvijaya, this is not new. Looks like, Digvijaya Singh has completely lost his mind since he lost the Lok Sabha elections to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur in Bhopal.
Recently he had alleged that Bajrang Dal and RSS are trained by ISI and promote terrorism across the country by taking money from them. Not only this, Singh has also trounced the Congress on many occasions for such ridiculous statements.
Whether it is to address Osama bin Laden as ‘Osama ji’ or make vulgar remarks about artist Sapna Chaudhary, Digvijaya has time and again put the Congress in a spot of bother. This time around, Digvijaya has again proven his sheer ignorance.
