Congress leader Digvijay Singh said in a book release program that Veer Savarkar did not consider eating beef wrong. He said that Veer Savarkar was not a religious person and said that what is the need to consider cow as mother. Not only this, he said that there should be no problem in eating beef. Digvijay Singh said that he had given the word Hindutva so that Hindu identity could be coined and due to this there was confusion among the people. He said that the word Hindutva has nothing to do with Sanatan Hinduism.
Digvijay Singh said this on the occasion of the release of a book written on the Supreme Court’s decision on the Ayodhya case of Congress veteran Salman Khurshid. Digvijay Singh said, ‘I am sad that the media also links Hindutva with Hinduism. Whereas Hindutva has nothing to do with Hinduism and Sanatani traditions. Savarkar ji was not a religious person. He had even said that why do you consider cow as mother and he had no objection to eating beef. Savarkar brought the word Hindutva to establish Hindu identity. Due to this confusion spread among the people.

This has happened because of the propaganda system of RSS. It is not a matter for anyone to get past them. Now they have a weapon like social media, which is proving to be irrefutable. Regarding the decision of the Supreme Court, in this book of Salman Khurshid, it has been said that the situation of division in the society regarding the Ayodhya dispute has been found by the Supreme Court. In his book, Salman Khurshid has compared Hindutva with terrorist organizations like ISIS and Boko Haram. He has written that Hindutva is putting aside the Sanatan and ancient Hinduism of sages and saints.
