New Delhi: The controversy over the Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s saffron terror remarks is yet to die down, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Monday has put the party in the dock by terming the

Lashkar-e-taiba chief Hafiz Saeed as ‘Saheb’.
Digvijay Singh said that Hafiz ‘Saheb’ is involved in terror activities and Pakistan government supports it.

At a time when BJP is adamant on its demand for unconditional apology from Shinde over his controversial comment, the new controversy sparked by Digvijay Singh may put the Congress in the dock.

It’s being assumed that mastermind Saeed is instrumental in the brutal killings of Indian soldiers along LoC in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan on January 8. Saeed visited the site where Indian jawans were beheaded by Pakistani troops.

Using respectable words for terrorists is not new for Digvijay Singh. He has earlier used such words for slain al-Qaida terrorist Osama Bin Laden.
