Digvijay Singh: The tongue that keeps slipping in deference to Pak, terrorists

Why does Congress leader Digvijay Singh suffer so many slips of the tongue when it comes to Pakistan and terrorists?

Adding to his long list of goof-ups, Singh on Thursday referred to Jammu & Kashmir as "Indian-occupied Kashmir",  exactly what Pakistan calls J&K and wants the rest of the world to believe to be true.

Singh clarified, however, that he had meant to say 'Pakistan-occupied Kashmir' and to assert that it was part of India.

Singh's comment came when he was speaking to reporters about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Independence Day reference to Balochistan.

In the past, Singh has referred to Osama Bin Laden with deference as 'Osama ji' and the Lashkar terrorist Hafiz Saeed as "Hafiz Saheb".

In July, Singh was mired in controversy when a video of him showering praise on alleged terror preacher Dr Zakir Naik had surfaced. Naik is in the eye of a storm after a terrorist involved in last month's attack on an upscale cafe in Dhaka, Bangladesh, had taken inspiration from his preachings.
