BHOPAL: Taking cognisance of senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s alleged controversial remarks on RSS-run Saraswati Shishu Mandir schools, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has asked DGP Vivek Johri to register a case against him, as per official letter of the commission.

The commission has also asked the DGP to submit a report based on the inquiry with documents within seven days of receiving the letter. The Commission issued the letter on Monday. Singh had said that Saraswati Shishu Mandir schools sow seeds of hatred against other religions in hearts and minds of children. The seeds of hatred sprout and disrupt communal harmony, creates communal unrest and spread religious hysteria.

Students have filed the complaint with the Commission saying that these schools teach nothing to disrupt communal peace. They added that their friends have started boycotting them after Singh’s statements. The Commission found the statement objectionable and also against the dignity students of schools. Chairperson Priyank Kanoongo has asked the DGP to register case against former CM within 7 days.
