From beef to calling Batla House encounter fake
By hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus, their efforts to appease the people of a particular religion often force the Congress to come on the backfoot. He had made a similar statement by saying that Hindus are beef eaters.

Digvijay Singh compared the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to the Islamic organization Popular Front of India ie PFI.
