Who is Satyapal Singh, the Union Minister who said no one saw apes turn into humans on Charles Darwin’s evolution theory?

Singh had, earlier in October 2015, tried to play down the Dadri lynching as a ‘small incident’ in which 52-year old Mohammed Akhlaq was dragged from his home in Bisada, Dadri and lynched to death on the suspicion of consuming beef.

Union Minister Satyapal Singh, who on Saturday commented that Charles Darwin’s theory is ‘scientifically wrong’ and should be changed in school and college curriculums, is a former Mumbai Police Commissioner. Satyapal Singh was the 1980 batch Maharashtra cadre IPS officer feared by organised crime syndicates in Mumbai during the 1990s. Singh is now the MP from Baghpat in Western Uttar Pradesh and was sworn in as a Minister of State in the Ministry of Human Resource Development. Satyapal was also sworn in as Minister of State in the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation in PM Modi’s council of ministers last September. Singh, a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs and chairperson of joint committee on Offices Of Profit was awarded Antrik Suraksha Sewa Padak in 2008 for his unparallel services in Naxal hit areas of Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh during the difficult phase of the ’90s.

However, this is not the first time Singh has been caught making a controversial comment. The 62-year-old Lok Sabha member had last month in Gorakhpur said, “Koi aadmi agar kehne lage ki main jeans pehenke kisi mandir ka mahant ban jaaunga to log pasand karenge kya? Koi pasand nahi karega. Ya koi ladki jeans pehenkar ke shaadi ke bedi pe jaayegi toh kitne ladke usse shaadi karna chahenge?” Singh said that ‘No one will be respected if he gives up custom of wearing traditional clothes’. No boy will be willing to marry a girl who goes to her wedding in a pair of jeans. He said this at an event attended by UP CM Yogi Adityanath. Also, Singh had, earlier in October 2015, tried to play down the Dadri lynching as a ‘small incident’ in which 52-year old Mohammed Akhlaq was dragged from his home in Bisada, Dadri and lynched to death on the suspicion of consuming beef.

The minister last September said that Indian students should be told that a man named Shivakar Babuji Talpade was the first to invent the airplane, eight years before the Wright brothers. He also suggested that Indian students should study about ‘Pushpak Vimaan’, the chariot in Ramayana and about ‘Vishwakarma’, a deity worshipped by craftsmen.

    Ask these top scientists some of the evidence for evolution and only evidence they give is millions of years and fossils being lost n blah n blah. These todays top scoentific ins utions are like olden day churches whose job is only to promote anti religious sentiments. Homosexuality is considered as natural by these scientists. In what way homosexuality fits into evolution? What is the evidence for it they will show none. Great scientists of past sacrificed their life for truth and todays scientists only care if the social media will support them or not. Thats the reason even though there are tons of evidence both mathematically and scientifically against evolution these so called scientists turn blind to everything. These scientists are as corrupt as any religious organisations today who care nothing for truth but to save their image. As every human has different personal life today if evolution was true then every human should have both external and internal body functionality.
