‘BJP calls me anti-Hindu… be my guest and check’

Digvijaya Singh blogs that he is a practising Hindu. Excerpts

I have the rare privilege to be the most abused person on social media by the Sanghis and paid professionals hired by Modi…

I have been called Dogvijaya Singh,sometimes Pigvijaya Singh,by the above-mentioned “Gang” who would probably be younger than my grandchildren!

Sometimes I am supposed to have converted to Islam and sometimes to Christianity. Blatant lies which the Sanghis are taught to spread during their training as pracharaks…

I am a practising Hindu. I was given diksha by His Holiness Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Dwarka and Joshi Math in 1983. I regularly pray everyday for half an hour,and have been doing this since 1969 when I was given Gayatri Mantra after I got my “Yagyo Pavit Sansakar”.


I have nine temples at my residence. Pooja is performed everyday… This has been going on for more than 14 generations in all the temples.

In four of them a permanent “jyoti” is lit 24×7 throughout the year.

I am the chairman of a trust which is running a Ved Pathshala at Hanuman Temple at Awan…

My mother was deeply religious and inculcated religious values in all of us 5 siblings … She fasted on Ekadashi all her life. We have imbibed these values. I fast on all Ekadashis. All-night kirtans are held every Ekadashi at my residence at Raghogarh,a practice my mother started.

On every “Dol Gyaras” I walk barefoot for 3 km with the “Vimans”. Have been visiting Pandharpur to pray at Vitho Ba’s feet on every Asadi Ekadashi for last 21 years.

Yet Sangh and BJP and their brigade call me anti Hindu!

…My Guru Shankaracharyaji of Dwarka has been unable to explain the meaning of Hindutva,which I believe was first used by Veer Savarkar,a staunch Arya Samaji who was vehemently against Sanatan Dharm… BJP’s Hindutatva has nothing to do with religion but [is a ploy to dupe unsuspecting Hindus.

As a good practising Hindu,it is my duty to stand up to all the falsehood the Sanghis and their paid professionals are spreading against Muslims,Christians and other minority groups.

Would all those who believe I am anti-Hindu please take note of this?

Or do they know a more devout Hindu in BJP and RSS? If they do,I would like to meet him.

I know what I am saying is going to fall on deaf ears of the motivated “Sanghi Gang”; nevertheless it is my duty to put on record what I believe in.

If you don’t believe what I have claimed,you are most welcome to be my guest at Raghogarh in Guna district,MP,which is a 3-hour drive from Bhopal,and cross-check yourself.


I hope all others who have been wrongly influenced by the Sangh propaganda would try to understand me better!
