New Delhi, May 1: Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Monday claimed the Telangana Police to set up fake ISIS site to radicalise Muslim youth. The senior Congress leader further alleged that after encouraging the Muslim youths in joining ISIS, the Telangana Police themselves informed the MP police about the train bomb blast in Shajapur District of Madhya Pradesh.

In a series of tweets, the senior Congress leader said, “Telangana Police has set up a bogus ISIS site which is radicalising Muslim Youths and encouraging them to become ISIS Modules. It was on their information that MP Police arrested accused who were responsible for the bomb blast in train in Shajapur District of MP.It also resulted in Saifullah encounter in Kanpur the same day.”


Questioning the morality of Telangana Police in trapping Muslim youths in becoming ISIS modules, Digvijaya Singh demanded Telangana Chief Minister KCR to resign from his post. “The issue is whether Telangana Police should be trapping Muslim Youths in becoming ISIS modules by posting inflammatory information? Is It Ethical? Is it Moral? Has KCR authorised Telangana Police to trap Muslim Youths and encourage them to join ISIS?”


“If he has then shouldn’t he own the responsibility and resign? If he hasn’t then shouldn’t he enquire and punish those who are responsible for committing such a heinous crime? I agree but what about the Telangana Police which is posting inflammatory postings to radicalise Muslim Youth through their fake ISIS site?” Singh said in a series of tweets.

Responding to all the allegations made by Digvijaya Singh, the Telangana Police said that the “unfounded allegations” made by the Congress leader would lower the morale of the security forces in the state. Replying to Digvijaya Singh’s allegations, Telangana DGP tweeted stating, “Unfounded allegations from a senior responsible leader will lower the morale and image of Police engaged in fighting anti-national forces and it.”


Apart from Telangana police, state minister KT Rama Rao criticised all the allegations made by Singh and demanded an unconditional apology from the former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. “Most irresponsible & reprehensible thing coming from a former CM. Request you to withdraw these comments unconditionally or provide evidence,” the Telangana Minister said.

After failing in forming the government in Goa, Digvijaya Singh was removed from Congress in charge position of Goa and Karnataka state.
