Jain monk Tarun Sagar 'forgives' Vishal Dadlani for his irreverent tweet

Bollywood singer and music composer Vishal Dadlani has been forgiven by Jain monk Tarun Sagar for his recent criticism.

Tarun Sagar said that may be Dadlani does not know anything about the Jain monks, Jainism or their beliefs, adding that had he known about that, he would not have made such a comment.

"He just knows that the Digambar Sadhus remain naked. He does not know about the Indian culture. Had he known about that, he would not have made such a comment. There is no question of apology as I am not angry with him. But the people of the society who respects me get hurt and they protest. Everyone should have the courage to say something which is wrong," he added.

The Jain monk said he was in Delhi eight months ago as he had to address the Delhi Assembly on 15 March but the programme got cancelled at last minute.

"Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Speaker Ram Niwas Goel had invited me. The Speaker had told me that we would like to hear your speech whenever you come to Delhi. The work of the saints is to speak and make people understand.they do that," he added.

Dubbing the incident as 'unfortunate', Delhi Home Minister Satyendra Jain said Dadlani has apologised for what he said unintentionally.

Meanwhile, a complaint in regard to the matter has been received at the Chembur police station in Mumbai against Dadlani about his tweet on Jain Muni Tarun Sagar.
