New Delhi. The rhetoric on the issue of Hindu and Hindutva continues. Senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh has claimed that Hindutva ideologue Vinayak Damodar Savarkar did not support cow worship. Singh, a Rajya Sabha member, said in a training program of party workers that Savarkar had said in one of his books that there was nothing wrong in eating beef. On the other hand, RDD leader Shivanand Tiwari has supported Digvijay Singh’s words and said that calling cow a mother is an insult to mankind.
Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh said, “He (Savarkar) has also clearly written in his book that Hinduism has nothing to do with Hindutva. Savarkar has said that the cow is such an animal that rolls in its own feces, from where can it be our mother, there is no harm in eating beef. Savarkar has said so.
