Senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh has stoked a fresh controversy when he said that non-Muslims are spying for Pakistan’s notorious spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), more than Muslims.

“Non-Muslims are spying for Pakistan’s ISI more than Muslims. This should be understood,” he said, news agency ANI reported.

Digvijaya also claimed that organisations like Bajrang Dal and the country’s ruling political party BJP are getting funds from ISI.

“Bajrang Dal, BJP are taking money from ISI. Attention should be paid to this,” he added.

The Congress leader made these controversial remarks in Bhind while addressing a gathering after inaugurating the statue of Maharana Pratap. A video of Digvijaya was shared by news agency ANI as well. The video is being widely circulated on the internet.

The Congress leader’s remark invited sharp criticism from senior BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Shivraj came down heavily on Digvijaya, saying the grand old party and its leaders are speaking Pakistan’s language.

“He (Digvijaya) gives controversial statements to stay in news. He and his leaders speak Pakistan’s language. Pakistan quotes Rahul Gandhi. As far as BJP-RSS is concerned, the entire world, the entire country knows their patriotism,” he said.

Digvijaya later denied making allegations that the BJP was taking money from ISI and accused media of biased reporting.

“Television channels are playing that I accused the BJP of taking money from ISI and spying for Pakistan. This is completely wrong,” he tweeted in Hindi on Sunday afternoon.

“The Madhya Pradesh police recently arrested Bajrang Dal and BJP IT cell officers for passing on information to ISI for money. I leveled this allegation and I stand by it even today. Why channels are not asking this question to the BJP?” he asked.
